Yukio Abe is a veteran art director that worked on creating visual concepts for later anime adaptations of Osamu Tezuka's manga.
Notably, he also worked with such anime directors as Masami Hata, the Dezaki brothers and character designer Sugino Akio.
Abe's works mostly consist of kodomo anime. His art style perfectly compliments children's stories creating beatiful, warm and fairy tale-like settings.
Not to be mistaken with another Yukio (幸男) Abe (阿部) who is a recording specialist.
