… to my noir-infused underworld of murder ballads, hard-boiled odalisques, gangsters, jazz musicians, beatniks, and aesthetes.
My name is Elizabeth Yoo. I am a freelance illustrator and noir writer living in New York.
My tumblr blog lejazznik was my first attempt (a few years ago) at making a website– it mainly became a place for me to post and reblog my favorite films, photographs, music, art, and literature. With this website I hope to finally achieve what I initially wanted to make: a focused, visually stimulating refuge in which I can share my favorite things– the things that make me happy– and indulge in my many interests.
At the moment I am working on a series of paintings inspired by the films and novels of Alain Robbe-Grillet. I can’t wait to share my noir stories with you– they will all be accompanied with an illustration or two.
