Illustrations by Yuko Shimizu

Yuko ShimizuI’ve noted Yuko’s work browsing through illustration books on various occasions. While searching the web tonight her illustrations caught my eye yet again. Based in New York Yuko Shimizu‘s work reminds one of Japanese Woodcuts. The combination of New York influences, the sexual connotations, the attention to detail and the strong Japanese heritage makes her illustrations unique and so fantastic.
