    Q&A

    How did you get started creating?

    YUME has enjoyed drawing since she was little and often participated in art events when she was a student. After graduating and finding a job as a graphic designer, she was too busy to draw much. However, it was always her dream to become an illustrator, so in 2011 she began drawing illustrations while working as a designer and participated in design festivals with her friends.

    What are you particular about in your work?

    As written in her profile, she wants her illustrations to invoke the same feelings of excitement and joy she experiences while flipping through her favorite fashion magazines. In order to empathize with young girls, her target audience, she diligently checks popular fashion magazines in order to learn about the latest trends and accessories to incorporate them into her drawings.

    How long does your work take to complete?

    Thinking of an idea and making a rough draft takes the longest amount of time. Sometimes she has to think about a design for several weeks. Once she has an idea in mind, it only takes her 3 to 4 days to finish the drawing.

    When do you come up with ideas for your work?

    She often thinks of ideas while reading magazines, looking at cute items in shops, and listening to music.
