About Yoko

Matsuoka Yoko

Yoko

Lives:

In the mountains of Akita, with bears, crows, and amazingly good Wi-fi.

Favorite Tools of the trade:

Cintiq and Oil paints for their depth of color. Pencils for their ease of use and all-around traditional ‘coolness’. Watercolors for their transparency and how they force the brain to ‘block’ everything before-hand.

Started Drawing:

I don’t remember a time when I didn’t love to draw. The World was my canvas. I started out with stick figures like everyone else…but just never quit.

Favorite Subjects:

Nature, Clouds, Buildings

Hobbies:

Reading, listening to music, making jewelry, watching figure skating.

About Yasushi

Yasushi Matsuoka

Yasushi

Lives:

just outside of Tokyo.  He is married and is also a stay at home dad who can cook a mean pasta.

Favorite Tools of the trade:

I started off with a pencil and eraser and I’d have to say that it is still my favorite medium, however now with a new Cintiq  it’s very close to taking first place.

Started Drawing:

I’ve been drawing for as long as I can remember. Growing up in a family of artists, it was a constant competition of who could draw “it” better. Looking back now I see how that pushed me and continues to push me to become a better artist.

Favorite Subjects:

People and more specifically faces. From old to young, each face is so unique I enjoy getting lost in the personality and story each face tells. I also enjoy drawing girls in skimpy outfits, (who doesn’t).

Hobbies:

When I’m not drawing I like to watch movies, work out, travel, and spend time with my family.
