Aiyana Udesen graduated from the San Francisco Art Institute in 2003 and is currently learning traditional botanical illustration using watercolor. These illustrations are rich in color and communicate each detail of the plant's structure. Aiyana says it has been quite mind-expanding. Future Colors of America is her art gang in which Matt Furie, Albert Reyes and Aiyana each take turns completing each other's drawings by passing them back and forth. Aiyana says her favorite band is Duran Duran.
