Welcome to Meerkatsu.com. My name is Seymour Yang and I am an artist and illustrator based in London, UK.
My artwork is heavily influenced by East Asian culture and the sport of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu. You will find my illustrations decorating clothing, martial arts uniforms, posters, advertising, stickers, magazine editorial and many other products and media.
Clients have included many of the biggest organisations and clothing companies in the fightwear industry.
I am also a writer and photographer and have been published in numerous print publications, including: Jiu Jitsu Style Magazine, Martial Arts Illustrated, Jiu Jitsu Magazine and Combat Magazine.
Please feel free to browse around the website and enjoy the gallery or blogsite, where I also review Brazilian Jiu Jitsu products and fightwear. I also have a store where I sell exclusive limited edition apparel. Plus a small range of my designs is available as prints and posters at my RedBubble store here.
