<Ebineko Character Goods Company>
Yasu is prolific japanese artist, illustrator, character and product designer from Nagoya Japan. She is a veteran of the Tokyo Design Festa show having exhibited there many times under her brand name "Yorozu zakka Ebineko-ya" <Ebineko Character Goods Company>.
Yasu’s original character designs come alive in a wide variety of media including plush, resin, soft vinyl, drawings, paintings, messaging stickers, and more! Her trademark character is “Ebineko” - a half cat and half shrimp character that seems to have gotten himself into some tempura batter at some point. “Ebineko” was released as a soft vinyl toy earlier this year – Yasu sculpted the figure herself and painstakingly hand-paints every release. Her figure line-up has recently expanded featuring several new soft vinyl figures; “Same” - the three eyed shark, “Yamorin” - the Gekko Dragon plus a cute mini version of “Ebineko” with more on the way. Ebineko was also included in Medicom’s VAG (Vinyl Artist Gatcha) Series 14.
Yasu made her Singapore debut at STGCC last year and has spent the last year travelling the world, exhibiting at events in Thailand, London, Taiwan, New York, Beijing and Shanghai.
