  1. About purchasing Original Artwork or Official items.
    Please subscribe to the newsletter at the store!
  2. Please don’t ask me about upcoming events schedule individually
    The newsletter will keep you informed about Mitsuhiro Arita, including future events.
    If you want to bring me to the event in your region, please suggest to the event organizers to have me.
  3. When Mitsuhiro come back to overseas events?
    I plan to come back to the overseas event when both Japan and the destination country’s governments announce that there are no special limitations and requests to travel.
  4. Mitsuhiro do nothing outside the event.
    Please don’t ask me about any service via mail. I also will not hang out with anybody except friends.
  5. Please don’t ask me connect you to the company or person.
    I’m just a freelance artist. I don’t have the power to help you to get a job. I wouldn’t connect you to other artists or somebody because I don’t know anything about you.
    I’ll ignore anything about those inquiries.
  6. Mitsuhiro isn’t a Grader or Re-seller.
    I can’t judge anything about your collection. Also, I’m not planning to sell the samples I got.
    However, I saw many fakes these days. If you don’t like to get fakes, please come to the events and get directly from me.
  7. Mitsuhiro doesn’t have the right to draw Pokemon as a person.
    If you seriously need it, please contact The Pokémon Company International or Creatures Inc.

2020 Mitsuhiro Arita Art Tour in the U.S.

[update] Last update. All the events after Morikami Museum had cancelled officially.
[update] Due to all the state schools in Florida and Utah was closed, so the events in there were also canceled

Hi all,

Five years ago, I started attending overseas events because there were a lot of requests to meet me, and I also want to introduce myself as an artist. I love to attend comic conventions of course, but in the last a few years, I usually have a long line at my booth, so it’s becoming hard to talk and doing commissions in front of the guests. Also, I think it’s becoming to be hard to come to meet me specially for young people.

So, I started a free event at the educational facilities like libraries. I’m thankful for the organizers in Collective Con and Ocala Comic Con. They always gave me the freedom and help me to do it.

This year, I got a chance to have an art tour in the U.S.
I’m looking forward to see you in your town.

*If you have a question, only Collective Con, Pokemon Salt-Lake City Regional Championships, and Morikami Museum will reply for you. Please note, don’t ask them about other events.
*The schools will make a web page about the event. If you can’t found anything, it means there is no information.
