YUKO : fresh, funny, fantastic

There's really more art here than you may want to take on -- but if you're like me, once you start digging in, it'll be dark before you know it.
      Yuko Shimizu is a freelance illustrator based in New York City and an illustration instructor at School of Visual Arts. Newsweek Japan has chosen her as one of "100 Japanese People The World Respects" in 2009.

Gina is fun, yet complicated

17th Annual Designing Women in DTG

Gina works with Matt, and we had a bit of a time separating the two -- once you see Gina's work, you won't get them confused.
      Gina Triplett is an illustrator living in Philadelphia, PA. Besides working on projects for clients that include Target, Converse, Whole Foods and Chronicle Books, she enjoys spending time exploring the city, sitting at cafes, playing with her dog and collaborating on paintings with her husband, Matt Curtius.

Kelli Anerson is a bit of a renaissance woman. I believe this has to be one of the unique web sites I've seen. The front page acts like a Google map, but shows her work! WOW ... Kelli writes :
      I'm an artist/designer and tinkerer who is always experimenting with new means of making images and experiences. From interactive paper to layered, experimental websites, everything begins and ends here in my studio which houses a 1919 letterpress and an assortment of other benevolent contraptions. I also teach art history at Pratt every summer.
