What Women Make Presents: Japanese Illustrator Yoko Furusho

JULY 30 & 31 –  Yoko Furusho is a New York based illustrator from Tokyo who, in her short career has already designed for brands such as Keds and Maybelline, agencies Lowe and TBWA, and magazines as diverse as Amelia’s Magazine to Princeton Architectural Press. She has had group shows and solo shows and is now working on a children’s book / iPad app and a charity project to help victims of the Japan earthquake among a million other things.

She was invited to show her work at traditional Japanese store, Ikiru, located in the heart of the Born neighborhood of Barcelona. She offered to come in person to do a live painting in their window – to the utter delight of the store’s dynamic press officer and the owner. We followed Yoko’s progress over the course of the weekend interviewing her about her inspiration, mesmerizing color palette, and the meaning behind her dream-like fairytales.
