About Instructor
Yoko Yabe is a Japanese illustrator and painter. In 2004, she came to America to study media arts and animation at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale. After graduating in 2007, she started working as a 3D designer at an architectural company in Japan, but soon realized that her real passion was to become an illustrator and a painter. She worked as a freelance illustrator for a film company, at a t-shirt factory, in publishing — and more — creating concept art, film posters, t-shirt designs, to name just a few. Mostly drawing women in her illustrations and paintings, and expressing the distinct personalities, lifestyles, and cultural backgrounds of each, her style features both traditional and modern Japanese arts. Ms. Yabe’s technique ranges from traditional canvas paintings to modern digital design.
