Yuko Shimizu illustrates expertly in ink then often does a bunch of digital color steps to get to her finished piece. Her blog is great because she shows off a lot of process sketches and digital steps and my favorite part, the ink on paper. The black and white pieces on this post really struck me as spectacular because they seem closer to a state of analog immediacy, but who knows, there may have been multi-digi-layers of gray and texture. Not that it matters. Just excuse me working through some personal art issues here in public and go check Yuko’s nice work.
