My name is Youngshim Gontijo and I'm a freelance Artist and Illustrator originally from Massachusetts, currently living in Los Angeles, working full time as a designer. I received my BFA in Illustration in 2013 from Massachusetts College of Art and Design. My art reflects the curiosities of introspection, dualities and nature. In my free time I enjoy connecting with others, playing with my dog Rio, and training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. If you would like to get in touch for commissions, general inquires, collaborations or just to say hi, please email me at
