Mastering Inking: Basic and Pro Techniques

   YUKO SHIMIZU (清水裕子) is a Japanese illustrator based in New York City and instructor at School of Visual Arts.
   Being a Japanese female, I guess Yuko gets lots of jobs drawing geisha.
   Her women R strong, sexy, traditional but w/ a twist of a modern symbol of rebellion (guitar, headphones, tattoos,etc.).
   Geisha re-imagined as superheroes.
