Ayako Ishiguro is a Japanese illustrator who loves creating artwork of cats and other living creatures. Her works can be described as both mysterious and cute, with pieces including those of cats playing trumpets and dragons holding samurai swords. They provide an intriguing view into the imaginative realm of the artist's mind, as well as a nostalgic trip back to the world of Japanese art of earlier times.

Ishiguro's first art collection is on sale on Amazon with over 200 illustrations depicting fairies, cats, and other subjects both real and mythical. Visit her website for more information.
