Hello! I'm Yu.  

I'm crazy about colors, obsessed with the tiniest details, thrilled to tell stories, and in love with odd characters. I'm an illustrator + designer + animator based in LA with 9 years of experience.

My childhood dream was to become either a manga artist or an explorer like Indiana Jones. I was drawing all the time...if I wasn't fantasizing about my future adventures. I was born and raised in Japan but by age 16, my curiosity dragged me out to study abroad in the U.S. It was a struggle to learn a foreign language from scratch. Luckily art is the same in every language, and I continued to draw. I grew even more passionate about art. I discovered it was another tool of communication.

I decided to study visual language and majored in Digital Media at Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles. After graduating from Otis in 2007, I worked as a full time designer at Big Machine for over 4 years. I received training in many creative disciplines…design, animation, compositing, etc...I enjoy them all. 

I've been freelancing since 2012. It'd be great to hear from you. Let's make something together!
