Yuko Shimizu was been drawing since she was a child. The influence on her traditional Japanese family sweeps through her sketches and illustrations of guitar-wielding and turntable-tacking rockstar. But Shimizu’s boldness is offset by deft touches of whimsy. On the set of a fashion feature, she helped create hand-drawn backgrounds of childhood storybooks, which contrast with grownup models revisiting favorite childhood characters like Dr. Seuss.  [via fabrikproject]
