“Gamers often feel a need to defend their passion. My mom used to question the value of the stuff I played while growing up…It would’ve been a lot easier and quicker to just show her the work of artist Kathryn DeFeo (known as Juuhachi).”
-Jeff Grubb, Games Journalist at VentureBeat.com
Brightly-colored and kinetic, the elasticity of Juuhachi’s work has been featured in projects from the likes of Nickelodeon, Disney Junior and Nintendo as well as a variety of indie studios. In time spent away from the drawing board, you’re likely to find her reading, shapeshifting and traveling whenever possible.
