Yuko interviewed me for a new feature in Japan's "Illustration" magazine. The interview will be published in Japanese but is now online in English here at Illustration Friday.
Please check it out, Yuko worked hard on it!
I first noticed Yuko's work years ago when she was just getting started. She had a wonderful suite of work right off the bat. I was immediately caught by her contemporary take on Japanese themes and culture and her unique combination of those themes with Western subjects. Soon, her work started appearing in the pages of The New Yorker alongside mine which always tickled me. It's been a real pleasure to get to know her over the years and to see how her work has developed. She's wonderful, funny, strong, smart, and a great representative of our industry. I'm very happy to call her my friend!
