As light and whimsical as the illustrations of Sashiko Yuen may seem at first, there is definitely a naughty undertone that makes them inappropriate for work. From inappropriate ice cream applications to literal finger food meals, the artist lets her imagination run wild in a gory, gritty and erotic way.

A recent Art & Design graduate from the Bachelors of Arts program at Towson University, Sashiko Yuen (also known as Wishcandy) pushes the boundary with her artwork. Kitschy, cute and full of feminine fierceness, Sashiko Yuen's illustrations depict a world in which women live on the edge, indulging their wildest fantasies.

Sashiko Yuen writes on her website, "I'm enamored by retro culture, street fashion, kitsch, beauty and the grotesque."
