Yuko Shimizu a multi-award-winning Japanese illustrator based in New York City. Her work includes multiple disciplines; from pages of The New York Times, TIME, Newsweek, The New Yorker to WIRED, covers for DC Comic, Penguin, and Scholastic, advertising for Apple, Microsoft, Intel, Universal Pictures, SONY, Paramount, MTV, Nike, Hasbro, and Target, to name a few. Additionally, she has collaborated with the Smithsonian Museum, Philadelphia Museum of Art, and Library of Congress. In 2020, collaboration with Artechouse brought her drawings to large-scale interactive experiences. Yuko is a two-time Hugo Award nominee (2019, 2020), has won more than 15 medals from the Society of Illustrators since 2004, and was recently awarded the Caldecott Honor (2021), one of the highest awards for picture books.

The Nomad NFTs are based on Isabelle’s famous Isabelle Gorilla character, which she first painted in 2011. The Nomad represents the uncensored human — who we are beneath the images we project. In a culture defined by the media’s constructed ideals of beauty and celebrity, Isabelle’s Gorillas stand for authenticity and self-acceptance. They let it all hang out and, despite their large, hairy bodies and pot bellies, they’re quietly self-confident and unfazed.They are Nomads, untethered from the expectations of society. As the Metaverse presents new challenges to identity, status, and success, the Nomads are a mirror. They are us and we are them. They invite us to not take anything too seriously, to laugh at ourselves, and embrace the absurdities of life. They are here to remind us of what’s important, our IRL imperfections, and our essential human nature.
