About the artist

Shihou San has a rich and jubilant art style that glows right off canvas. Shihou says he’s been drawing since he was in elementary school. He filled the margins of every homework assignment with manga doodles. Luckily for us, and his teachers, he graduated and started looking for larger canvases to paint on. Shihou’s fun and whimsical designs glow with charm, mystery, and magic. They have been featured in games and publications across Japan. His own doujinshi publications are highly prized, and sought after, in the comic festivals every year in Tokyo. He loves to smile, he loves to draw, and says that every drawing is a new discovery for him and a chance to improve.
