Los Angeles, CA, US


My name is Yu, but I usually go by Yuey because it can get quite confusing. I’m an Japanese illustrator who loves making your day a little bit more fun and colorful.

I grew up in a small town in Japan with big passion for art and travel.
My love of illustration, design, and storytelling has led me to graduate with BFA in Digital Media from Otis College of Art and Design. Before starting my illustration career, I worked as a motion graphics designer for commercials and TV networks for 10 years. I now enjoy mixing digital skills into my illustration. Inspiration is everywhere for me from observing tiny details of every day life to vibrant sceneries during my travels. I currently reside in sunny Los Angeles with my husband, my son, and a sassy tuxedo cat. When I’m not drawing, you can find me playing with my son, listening to live music, reading, and traveling faraway places with family and friends.

Bento lunch by Yuey

Los Angeles, CA, US


My dad is an excellent cook. He used to pack bento box for my school lunch. Everyday I'd find something different in it, and they were all delicious. Now that I'm a mom, I realize how much work he put in for me every morning. A part of me is made of those bento box lunches. It makes me happy to know that.
