Aona Hayashi is a Tokyo based illustrator, who creates beautiful drawings with a focus on silhouettes, angles and aesthetic. What sets her apart from other artists is that as opposed to using ink, she uses charcoal to draw with.


The motif of Aona’s striking illustrations are not only simple still life images, but also everyday objects that surround our world. Using calligrapher ink on textured paper, Aona is able to achieve a bold and monochromatic drawing that is strong and distinctive. Aona has done a number of collaborations with other artists and spends time sketching people’s elegant figures and faces too.
