Yo­gisya is a Ja­panese il­lus­tra­tor who de­scribes her work sim­ply as “a search for the beau­ti­ful”. Her de­viantART posts – which in­clude ev­ery­thing from sketches and WIPS to com­plete com­mis­sions and com­pe­ti­tion en­tries – reg­u­larly at­tract hun­dreds of com­ments. And it’s not hard to see why.

Her work is a kalei­do­scope of colour, fea­tur­ing beau­ti­ful but for­lorn sub­jects ren­dered with in­deli­ble line work. Her se­cret lies in a mix of old tech­niques and new me­dia.

“I like to use wa­ter­colours,” Yo­gisya says, “but mix them with dig­i­tal. I’m try­ing to draw il­lus­tra­tions that in­cor­po­rate both the aca­demic and manga tech­niques.”

Yo­gisya’s work has at­tracted the at­ten­tion of TCG, the toy and games com­pany, which has in­vited her to draw il­lus­tra­tions for card game Last Chron­i­cle. Her art has also ap­peared in var­i­ous books and mo­bile games.

1 Princess “Princess is the art­work that ap­pears on my busi­ness card. It’s an il­lus­tra­tion I cre­ated us­ing my pre­ferred mix of me­dia – wa­ter­colour and Pain­ter.”

2 Con­certo for us “With the mu­si­cal in­stru­ments in your heart, a per­son can play the sounds of the soul. Again, it was cre­ated us­ing wa­ter­colours and Pain­ter.”
