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.
Feel free to look around this website. You can buy clothing and uniforms here, prints and posters here. I also write reviews and general BJJ discussions over on my Blogsite. Finally, if you enjoy my artwork then have a look at my Behance gallery.
