Hello!This is ZIMMA, the director of FACTO.
This time, we would like to introduce in detail Jia Hagimori, an artist who is very popular and talked about at FACTO!
I would be happy if you could sympathize with me as I will explain her work in my own way. I hope that the people who know Hagimori on this occasion will like her work more and more.
Please take a look to the end.
What is Jia Hagimori?
Hagimori is an illustrator from Hyogo Prefecture and currently based in the Kanto region.
Her work portrays a transparent “student” and is gaining popularity among the younger generation.
My main work is related to illustration, such as music video thumbnails, animation and character design, and novel illustrations. In addition, we are active in a wide range of events, such as exhibiting at Design Festa.
She also contributes to the training of young creators by working as a corrections officer in correspondence courses at Kyoto University of the Arts.

Also, in the Shinkenzemi elementary school course and the 2022 high school course , he worked on DM illustrations and website illustrations, so students at the time may recognize him!

I think it was very good that the world view of the book and the work drawn by Mr. Hagimori matched!
This is the point!
Now, from here on, I would like to give three good points about Mr. Hagimori's work by Director ZIMMA. (*This is my personal opinion.)
I told you at the beginning, but no matter what, it's transparent!
Various elements are condensed in one picture, from the soft expression to the beautiful jewel-like depiction.
(2)Expression of light
The expression of light is also beautiful.
Different emotions and stories are expressed by the production of light depending on the work, and you can feel the emotions and worldview of the characters even more deeply.
(3) Color overlap
Hagimori's work is characterized by unique lines and layering of paint. There is a fine colorfulness, and I feel a sense in the way the colors are layered.
According to him, he uses only colors, mainly blue, for his work. However, the blue itself has different expressions depending on the work, and I felt that it was very attractive.
These are the good points of Mr. Hagimori's work that I feel. All of them are unique to her and make the work more attractive. Please take a look at her work and feel the charm.
