About Me

Yufushi

Illustrator / Japan

Born and living in Tokyo. After my debut with the illustrations of the “Ayakashi no Kagami” series that started in 2008, I’ve been doing illustrations and cover designs for novels, children’s books, and magazines. I periodically participate in Comitia and Design Festa, and also postcard and group exhibitions.

I am dedicated to the soft colors of transparent watercolors, and I mostly paint girls in Japanese clothes.

    Q&A

    How did you get into drawing?

    I got into oekaki BBS pictures for coloring, and the friends I made in that period recommended watercolors to me, and so I started using transparent watercolors. When I heard that Asuka Shinsha was launching “Small S”, I submitted some illustrations. They were published in the first issue, and I started to receive illustration and manga requests from them. I started participating in S-camps, going to Comitia with friends and participating in postcard exhibitions, which increased my opportunities for painting.

    What are your fixations?

    The girls in my pictures being cute,
    the coloring being soft yet vibrant,
    and the embedment of the characters' feelings.

    How long does your work take to create?

    Between a day and a week.
    A colored picture usually takes about two days.

    When do you come up with ideas for your work?

    When I go for walks or trips and see sceneries, flowers, or accessories,
    and when I doze off taking a bath.
