Yuki Nakano Illustrations

Japanese artist and web designer Yuki Nakano’s portfolio pleasantly smacked me in the jaw with its intricate designs and strong colours. Her digital and drawn illustrations are inspired by ‘jewellery, cultural artifacts and other beautiful things made by people’.

‘I’m not a full time fine artist, but I do freelance art/design/web full time at the moment. I’ve done work for Firefox, University of Queensland, MdN magazine, and lots of other small businesses. I live in Brisbane and exhibit around the area’.

Nail Polish

Her tools include pencils, ink, watercolour, acrylic paints, and even nail polish for extra sparkle.

Yuki plans to develop a new body of work that is more personal, and reflective of her Japanese heritage and childhood. More of her work can be found at her site: Yukister.

  1. Hi,
    If you talk about the fashion trends and fashion jewelry in India, it more or less follows the traditional style but with a few modern changes. The latest fashion trend of designer jewelry in India is two-tone gold jewelry. The traditional yellow gold jewelry now comes with rhodium or white gold detailing. An alternate fashion trend combines colored precious stones, semi precious stones and diamond jewelry in elaborate traditional designs with a modern twist.

  6. Fashion refers to the styles and customs prevalent at a given time. In its most common usage, “fashion” exemplifies the appearances of clothing, but the term encompasses more. Many fashions are popular in many cultures at any given time. Important is the idea that the course of design and fashion will change more rapidly than the culture as a whole. Fashion designers create and produce clothing articles.

  7. The content on this site is unique. A good work done related to tutorials and must be carried on.
