INFINITE CAREER LADDER
BY SAJANAMI
& NANAMI TAKEUCHI
NANAMI TAKEUCHI IS AN ARTIST BASED IN THE UK WHO ENJOYS FOLLOWING CATS, LOOKING AFTER PLANTS POORLY AND TAKING BAD PHOTOS OF FOOD AS PART OF HER VARIED INTERESTS WHEN SHE ISN’T DRAWING.
HER WORK MOSTLY EXPLORES JAPANESE FOLKLORE AND ITS MANY CURIOUS DEMONS, OFTEN THROUGH REVISITING HALF-LISTENED-TO MYTHS AND STORIES FROM HER CHILDHOOD. WHILST A SPECIALIST IN MORE TRADITIONAL MATERIALS, THIS COMIC PROVIDES A GLIMPSE OF HER FIRST FORAY INTO DIGITAL WORK.

IN THIS COLLABORATION, SAJANANAMI PRODUCED WORK COMBINING THEIR SPECIFIC MUTUAL INTERESTS - INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO PARASITES, HELLS AND HAGFISH. THEY WANTED TO APPROACH COLLABORATING IN A FUN AND EXPERIMENTAL WAY THAT HYBRIDISED THEIR ART, RATHER THAN DELEGATING THE PROCESS IN THE TRADITIONAL WRITING/PENCIL/INK/COLOUR METHOD. EMOJIS FEATURED WERE SOURCED FROM LOUAN BENGMAH’S BEAUTIFUL EMOJI MASHUP GENERATOR.
