Welcome to Yukié's Bookstore! I am an Illustrator in Paris who depicts the positive side of life. My artwork is bold, story-driven, and playful. I find inspiration in daily life in France, the American spirit, and my Japanese heritage. With a professional background in graphic design, I created the first Action Planner and ABC approach to the French language just for myself. My productivity went way up. I finished projects and reached my goals — like learning French, my third language! Many friends have requested copies of my planners and books and so "ABC Paris," "Action Planner" and more have finally found a home on BLURB. Please scroll down to see all my products.
