  1. You have such wonderful attention to detail, Yuka! This koi is simply delicate and beautiful. I wish I had your eye.

  2. Hi Yuka,

    Let me know if you’ll have any time in San Francisco while you’re here – please email me with your email addy (I can’t remember it) and I’ll email you my cellphone number. Would love to grab a coffee with you!


  3. Ohh this picture is so beautiful
    I love how your illustration can take me to a far away place where not so innocent creatures roam the place
    ahh i sound so cheesy!

    anyway, fortunately i stumbled across your blog today by chance and was so so excited to find that you were the person that drew the picture of a girl with an elephant for a head – ive been obsessed with the drawing and wanted to find out the name of the artist since 2007 (or early 2008 not sure!)
    ive just spent half my day going through the whole website and it literally made my day~
    im in my first year of college in england and for our final major project, we had to research our favorite artist so ive picked you, i love how you see the world and the art you make are simply amazing :D!

    I’ll definitely be checking out this site more than i should ;_; ~

    Oh and your son is absolutely adorable by the way, me and my friend were just squealing at him in his white racing suit<3

  4. Though a clarifying face cleaner works wonderful to minimize all traces of oil and give you
    a tidy feeling, in case you begin experiencing terribly itchy skin or red
    spots quickly stop the use of that particular facial cleanser.
    These trees are heavily exploited and have been depleted to about 50% in the last
    century. When the make-up is left unaltered,
    oils manage to mix well with the natural structure of the human body, offering very desirable results.
