I could—and often do—look at illustration work for hours (pursuing a career in animation was a one-time goal of mine), and these particular pieces by Tokyo-based illustrator and graphic designer Kimiaki Yaegashi are no exception.

Born in 1972 in Iwate, Japan, Kimiaki's career began in the late '90s. Most of his work involves similar motifs (Japanese folklore and pizza, mainly), and feature a set of recurring characters—bikini girls, kappa, tiny tengu, and Kentaro. The images, with their somewhat surreal, sexy-cute pop-art appeal, are for sale on Thumbtack Press.
