Illustrator Wonder

Yukari Terakado is a Japanese born illustrator specializing in hip, fashionable prints intricately drawn using primarily pencil and acrylics. Her lines are detailed and I especially love the hair detail that goes into her every work. If her style is reminiscent of the traditional Japanese prints (the ukiyo-e-technique which is mostly wood blocking, comes to mind.), then her subject matter is mostly a European affectation to beautiful women, cats and skulls. Very beautiful, simple and haunting in its elegance. See more here.
