Asian Super Girls from Yuko Shimizu

If you don’t already know Yuko Shimizu, you’ve been missing out. Having illustrated for companies ranging from Microsoft to MTV, Yuko creates unique characters in her own super style.

In the midst of all her different works are a collection of “Super-Girls.” While many possess a feeling of classic Japanese woodblock printing, they all have a modern twist: one spins a classic record, another jams on a flying V guitar, and one is busy choking out a La Lucha wrestler. Here are a few of her works. Find more at her website, on Facebook or on Behance.
