Asako Ito's first illustration for the TCG
Asako Ito is an illustrator for the Pokémon Trading Card Game starting with Sun & Moon. She is unique among TCG artists as, rather than drawing or making a 3D render, she crochets amigurumi of the Pokémon. As of this writing, she has illustrated six cards, all of them basic Pokémon.
