One of the original Pokémon card game illustrators, Mitsuhiro Arita, will conduct a special workshop on Wednesday, March 25 in room 2004 WJB. In addition to designing Pokémon cards for the past 23 years, Mr. Arita has been involved with artwork and concept design for numerous anime, video game and collectible card game franchises, including Final Fantasy, Berserk, Super Sentai, and Kamen Rider, among many others. After a short presentation about his work, Mr. Arita will do a live drawing demonstration. He will then conduct a Q&A session and sign autographs (one item per participant). If you have something in particular–like a favorite Pokémon card or a drawing pad–that you would like him to autograph, remember to bring it with you!
This free public event is sponsored by the Departments of Modern Languages & Linguistics, Art, and Art History.
