Pullip Himawari was inspired by the artwork of Junichi Nakahara. Junichi Nakahara was a Japanese fashion illustrator and artist, he is most famous for creating the Himawari magazine. Himawari or Sunflower (English translation) was a magazine aimed at women and young girls. The magazine was published from 1947-1952 with a total of sixty seven volumes being published, the magazine featured many illustrations by it’s creator Junichi Nakahara as well as from other contributing artists. Many believe that Junichi Nakahara’s characteristic art style featuring large eyed innocent girls helped to inspire the shoujo manga art style.
