ART CARDs by Mitsuhito Arita

What is the ART CARD?

ART CARD is Mitsuhiro Arita’s original merchandise: A5-sized prints on heavyweight paper. You can purchase them at events. Currently, there are two major series named Animals in Suits and JIDAI. Both are collections of a series of gouache paintings. Only the Animals in Suits is sold at the online store in a 15-page booklet style, but all of the Animals in Suits and JIDAI cards and some of the secret cards are sold only at the events.

Event ART CARD Project

The ART CARDS have become popular since its debut. People frame and display them on the wall. Even some people send them to the grading company. So, Mitsuhiro decided to create a series of memorial ART CARD for each event. It is the Event ART CARD.
It will be created every time Mitsuhiro appears at an event. The artwork will be newly drawn, and the subjects will be based on his original fantasy world. There are two variants:

  • LIMITED: Sold exclusively at the specific event. They have an EDITION MARK, are serialized, and signed by the artist’s hand, usually limited to 300 sheets.
  • COMMON: Sold only at events.

All the Event ART CARD will SOLD ONLY AT THE EVENT unless Mitsuhiro quits the event appearance.


  • #01 released at TRA CON in Melbourne
  • #02 will be released at Paris Manga #34 in Paris, France
  • #03 OkOk 2023 in Oslo, Norway

I would like to release at least twelve cards.

About the future oversea event schedule

I’ll announce it as the event category posts.

Getting the agreement to attend the oversea event is not easy and takes a long time. If you can’t find any info, there is no fixed schedule. So I’l never open until the appearance is concretely certain.
If you seriously want to have me as a guest at the event in your area, please suggest it to the event organizers about it. If they send me a request to be their guest, I’ll talk with them.

    In addition, I’m not planning to sell the samples I got.
