Hello! I'm Yuey. I’m crazy about colors, obsessed with the tiniest details, thrilled to tell stories, and in love with odd characters.
My name is Yu, but I usually go by Yuey because it can get quite confusing. I’m a Japanese illustrator living in sunny Los Angeles with my husband, my son, and a tuxedo cat.
My love of design, illustration and storytelling led me to receive a degree in Digital Media from Otis College of Art and Design in 2007. After graduation I’ve worked as a motion designer / animator for commercials, networks, video games etc. If you’re curious, you can view my motion graphics portfolio here.
I’ve recently decided to focus more on my illustration. I enjoy working with both traditional and digital mediums. My illustration is influenced by my upbringing in Japan, my passion for travel, and my experience as a motion designer / animator.
I’m always looking forward to a new challenge. If you’d like to inquire about a commission or collaboration, feel free to drop me a line!
