Shinzi Katoh

Shinzi Katoh’s work is strongly associated with a style known as ‘Zakka-kawaii’ (kawaii means cute).  Hardly any iconic animated brand has not been touched by his creative adaptations in the form of collaborations with: Disney, Hello Kitty, Pokémon, Popeye®, Winnie the Pooh, Anne of Green Gables, Astro Boy, Moncchichi, Paddington Bear™ and more. 

He is well-known for his signature children’s art illustrations that instill a playful sense of childlike wonder and imagination.

Mic Moc is proud to offer a spotlight on some of his range of stationery products which are well-loved even by adults around the world, much like the Hello Kitty adult-fans phenomenon. You will recognise many well-loved fairytale themes in addition to his penchant for sprightly and delightful animated characters. We hope our curated Shinzi Katoh collection here will bring you cheer and a sense of childhood wonderment and joy.  More of his products will be arriving soon, so look out for updates by subscribing to our pop-up.  For more information, you may want to check out our post on Shinzi Katoh under the main menu's  'Our Journal' section.
