Zafouko Yamamoto - Illustrator
Zafouko Yamamoto is a Greek illustrator living and working in Thessaloniki, Greece. She started illustrating some years ago after finishing her studies as an architect, in small sketchbooks using the cheapest watercolors and colored pencils she could find. After years of experimenting and practice she realized that art is what she wants to do.
What she loves about illustrating for children's books is the whole procedure, including research, first sketches, coloring and final editing in Photoshop.
She gets inspired by walking in nature or in the city and also by other artists' work.
