Ikuko Ito’s art showcase (earlier edition)

I think that, when one says “Ikuko Ito”, they always think of the work she’s done as a character designer for S and SuperS, sometimes forgetting how drastically different her artstyle was in the first two seasons. So I’ve decided to post some of her earlier illustrations, just to show how much she improved with the given time.
