Award-winning illustrator Yuko Shimizu

Award-winning illustrator, YUKO SHIMIZU has been dominating the world of illustration for the past few years.  In 2009, Newsweek Japan chose her as one of "100 Japanese People The World Respects". Sketchtravel is EXTREMELY lucky to have Yuko's work in the mix.  To see more work:  James Jean, Tomer Hanuka and Yuko once shared a working studio during their School of Visual Arts days.  We're very lucky that they all contributed!
Sketchtravel is a unique international charity project to benefit Room to Read, an international non-profit dedicated to increasing child literacy in developing countries. Our goal is to build one library ($20k) and sponsor one local children's book publishing ($15k).
