Mozco! Garash!

It shouldn't come as much of a surprise that some of the best design work on the web is being done by Japanese web site designers. After all, Japan, much like China, has a rich artistic heritage that extends back many thousands of years.

A tradition that emphasizes the harmony of nature and the bold strokes of calligraphy has translated well to the digital era, with the result that some of the best looking pages on the Net are being put together by Japanese artists.

It hasn't taken long for their work to influence the creations of American designers, many of whom are borrowing heavily from their neighbors to the East.

One of the first artists many Americans discover is Igarashi Susumu - a Japanese iconographer who makes some of his work available to web designers as freeware through his personal web site.

Several characteristics evident in Susumu's work have already made it to this country. The heavy borders he favors around his graphics are showing up on many American web sites. Eye-catching icons created using the high-level, almost surgical attention to detail Susumu uses are also becoming very popular - replacing the symbolic style in vogue for a long time.

Three weblys for inspirational value.

Three more for an outstanding set of links to important icon sites.
