Climbing - - THE APPROACH -

“Climb­ing gives me a deeper con­nec­tion with na­ture and the out­doors, which acts as an end­less source of in­spi­ra­tion,” says the Los An­ge­les vis­ual devel­op­ment artist and char­ac­ter de­signer Yuhki De­mers. A climber since 2007, De­mers of­ten boul­ders at Stoney Point and Mal­ibu Creek, or in­doors at Boul­der­dash in West­lake Vil­lage and Cliffs of Id in Cul­ver City. When he’s not out boul­der­ing, he’s work­ing on an an­i­mated Spiderman fea­ture film at Sony Pic­tures An­i­ma­tion. His work in an­i­ma­tion and mid-cen­tury car­toon de­sign plays into his im­ages of dra­mat­i­cally lit moun­tains and climbers in ac­tion. “The sense of awe and won­der I get when star­ing at rocks larger than sky­scrapers mo­ti­vates me to try to cre­ate awe­some work,” he says.
