Tomohiro Kitakaze (Japanese: 北風友祐, born April 8th, 1983 in Kobe) is a freelance illustrator. He is an Osaka University of Arts graduate and previously worked at Monolith Soft as a 2D designer, providing concept art for characters, monsters, and machinery. He later worked for Game Freak, again as a 2D designer, providing concept art and designs for Pokémon characters, though it is unknown which specific Pokémon he designed. In addition to this, he also provided artwork for one card from the Pokémon Trading Card Game. Kitakaze's subjects are initially drawn traditionally, and then enhanced digitally afterwards. His cartoon strips and characters are created in anime style, though his more detailed illustration work draws inspiration from mythical creatures and the occult, sometimes incorporating mechanical motifs.
