My name is Jessica Miyuki. I am an illustrator, designer, business owner, and model, born and raised in Japan, based wherever travel allows. If I'm not in California or Japan, I'm exploring somewhere tropical because I found a good deal online.
My inspiration comes from traveling, wandering, and enjoying the beauty of life. It's not always sunshine and rainbows but I like to draw it like it is. I find there's always something weird but blissful in every situation. If not it'll make for a good story later.
I like tropical things, simple things, supernatural things, and I'm a sucker for gradients: tie-dye, rainbows, sunsets, fireworks, and holographic pokémon cards. I like to surf, skate, hike with my pup, and look up menus before eating at new places.
I hope my work inspires you to daydream of sand on your feet, a gentle sea breeze, sipping piña coladas under a warm summer sun, no one can stop you from traveling in your mind.
Feel free to browse the site, check out some artwork below you may have seen in stores (or in your closet!), or add some new things from the shop!
Bikinis, wetsuits, surfboards...
I grew up wearing board shorts, bikinis, and puka shell necklaces, all hyped up from Blue Crush, it was a surreal experience designing for Billabong.
Not only did I get to wear my own designs, I got to see my designs in stores all around the world, including in my hometown in Japan and Bali and Australia while I was traveling!
Paint (on) the things you love
An interesting canvas shape and size. A different way to upcycle broken boards that would have otherwise gone in the trash. Give an object another life with some artwork.
