Artwork by: Yoriko Yoshida

While I was flipping through the pamphlet for the Tokyo Graphic Passport 2010 exhibition in October, I came across an interesting artist. Her name is Yoriko Yoshida and her concept according to the website is, “Producing Art Works based on the concept of 「艶やか-ADEYAKA」(It means “sensual”) vigorously.-In an attempt to visualize the Asian Culture, mixed with Japaneas culture, Chinese culture and more.” Unfortunately, I couldn’t make her days at the show, but found a lot of amazing work on her website and thought I would share with you.

An amazing feat of Yoriko is her discipline and diligence as an artist, which is evident by looking at the amount of work she has up- an astonishing 1460 works and counting up. Since beginning back in 2007, Yoriko has been updating her website with one artwork every day. http://workbook.yoriquo.com/

Made with Japan picked up her Asialphabet series, which consists of the roman alphabet drawn out of elements from Japanese culture. So when you’re ready to begin, we will walk you through Yoriko Yoshida’s Asialphabet.

アジアをテーマでイラストレーションを描く、吉田 依子氏による、「アジアルファベット」は日本文化のモチーフをアルファベットに描いたあるプァベットです。彼女はGraphic Passport Exhibition 2010のパンフレットで発見しました。私がGraphic Passportへ行った日はグループが入れ代わっていて、作品実物は見れなかったのが残念でしたが、これがきっかけで、吉田さんのウェブサイト「Yoriko Yoshi Workbook」http://workbook.yoriquo.com/ を伺いました。驚いたのが、企画として2007年から1日1枚、1年365枚アートをサイトに更新し続けている事。この中で発見したのがAsialphabetのシリーズ。日本の伝統といえるアイテムがアルファベットの形に見えるように描いてあって、かわいいです。
