Yuko Shimazu Yuko Shimazu Yuko Shimizu

Award winning Japanese illustrator based in New York City and instructor at School of Visual Arts.


I had so much fun spending time with faculty and students from Virginia Commonwealth University. Big thank you to everyone, especially to: a senior Raven Herrera for arranging everything, faculty Sterling Hundley and Tin Salamunic for taking me around and help me arranging my disastrous trip back to New York. (La Guardia got shut down for a day, and I had to take a long Amtrak ride back to Penn Station. Yikes!)

And, yes, Yuko will be in her studio for a while. …….OK, it may be a lie. I may have a possible London business trip this month, but I will definitely post the details if it happens. Anyway, happy weekend everyone.
