my drawings on arsenal pulp press catalogue cover


(the front cover)

a production manager from arsenal pulp press, a vancouver book publisher, contacted me to ask if they could use images of my drawings for the cover of their new books catalogue. each season they print around 4000 copies of this catalogue and distribute them to booksellers and university professors across canada and the US. they like to showcase a new artist on the cover of the catalogue. for the spring 2008 catalogue, they chose me.


(the back cover)

the manager who contacted me wanted to use “the upper hand” for the front cover, because they publish a lot of vegan cookbooks and the drawing makes her laugh. she wanted to use a drawing with pencils for the back cover, so i chose “my watercolours“.

i received some copies yesterday. i’m happy how it turned out. i like the background colour she chose – that’s one of my favorite colours.

  1. Congratulations! It must really feel good whenever someone contacts you wanting to use your art and being a featured artist! Blue is my favorite colour. ^-^

  2. i used to hope the day would end soon looking at a clock when i was working for some sh*ty jobs. now i hope the day is longer. i think that’s a good thing.

  3. Hi Yuka,

    I sent you an email earlier about becoming involved in my soon-to-be-released online art gallery/store. I’d love to hear from you.

    I love your stuff. Congratulations on the Arsenal Pulp Press cover.

  4. I think that happens only when you are truly happy. It’s ashame more people in the world cannot live their dreams I’ve worked some crappy jobs myself, long hours and poor pay. The day felt never ending, it still feels that way when I’m with Kyo but I am happy about it. ^-^ He is worth putting my career on hold for.
