ILLUSTRATION

Illustrations Of Darkness And Innocence

Yuriko Shirou is a self-taught illustrator based in Mexico. He has worked in many different art styles—including manga, American comics, and figurative art—and has done projects for publishers around the world. His illustrations resemble morbid fairy tales, conflating innocence with darkness. The moth is a recurring symbol, channeling Mesoamerican beliefs surrounding death omens and the Greek mythology of the underworld. Yuriko also makes taxidermy and steampunk-inspired jewellery, which you can see on his Etsy. Visit his Instagram to follow his work.
