Yoko D'holbachie

I bought the Vol. 6 Hi Fructose magazine a few months ago because there was a spread of Audrey Kawasaki's work inside. Although those 9 pages I had been waiting for were bliss...the true treasure I found inside (well on the outside too because her art was on the cover) was Yoko D'holbachie....."

The eyes of Yoko D'holbachie will send you. Just look at them, up to a half dozen at a time, and see a world not as simple or sweet as it might at first appear--decaying from surface cuteness into complex oddities of tentacle, barnacle and corpuscle. Revealing teeth and wing and toadstool, and a chromatic riot of mythological, biological and psychedelic implications."
