Fumi Mini Nakamura is a New York-based illustrator and designer. I first got to now her work via Juxtapoz. She is able to combine a dark, ornate and fragile feel to her illustration work, which I really like. She has sent me some of her latest work, including one of her workspace, for your eyes to feast on.

It reminds me of several other well-known illustrators working today, but I feel that she is onto something spectacular that will simply continue to evolve until we’re […]
Rainbows shooting out of toilets. Trashcans everywhere. And what could possibly be a certain part of the female anatomy. Hmmm. My somewhat juvenile sense of humor is totally with New York-based illustrator and designer, Jesse Kuhn.

I’m a big fan of Fernanda Cohen’s work. The Brooklyn-based illustrator — and sometime Lost At E Minor contributor — has just completed a new series called War of Words which has received two silver medals from the Society of Illustrators of NY and LA, and will be featured in HOW International Design in March.
