Yuko Higuchi is an acclaimed children’s book author and illustrator from Tokyo. Higuchi is widely-recognized for her fantastical illustrations that portray anthropomorphic animals (especially cats) and nature-inspired motifs. She was recently commissioned by Gucci to translate her surrealistic designs on a collection of shoes, bags, and ready-to-wear apparel for the label’s Children’s Cruise 2020 collection.
Included in the kids’ collection is a digital sketchbook that includes coloring pages, games, and more. It’s free to download now on Gucci’s website.
Elsewhere in art, The Journal Gallery releases a new original artwork by emerging Brooklyn-based artist, B. Thom Stevenson.
