Fuki Funakoshi
Born in Saitama, Japan. I spent my childhood in Singapore. After graduating from Dokkyo University ( with a B.A. in German Language), I trained drawing skills and studied fashion at Setsu Mode Seminar (Tokyo). I trained also graphic design skills at Vantan design institute.
Later I worked at an IT company and advertising company. Experienced job for graphic designer and design director about 4 years.(2000-2004). After that I’ve start working as a self employed illustrator and graphic designer.
On 2016 I moved my base to Boulder Colorado USA. 
My main clients include companies in the field of publishing, international society. Additionally I am supporting some companies to start-up business with branding.
I love dancing and traveling the world both of which inspire my art.
