Yoko Furusho is a Japanese illustrator based in New York, and was featured in my first book, Amelia’s Anthology of Illustration. Since then she has worked with a long list of commercial clients, and featured in many exhibitions and books. She loves to draw details, textures and patterns with ink and acrylics. The Scenery of the Other Side was inspired by Japanese ideas of the afterlife, following the recent loss of her grandfather. ‘Souls must cross a huge river, and are first judged by the King of Hell.
