Brave Civille, Limited Edition Prints


Illustration of a cow.

Art work is a portal.

In this case, a portal for dignity, truth, inner fight … for them to shine through.
Two stories about impressive bulls inspired me to draw, carve and print.
Slanted look is intentional; Informal is the style I am after.

Hand printed, signed. Edition of 10. But really, each piece is one and only.
The one in photo is my copy and is the first try. Yours will have “ print number / 10 “ next to signature.

Price: 1700 JPY ( about 16 USD / 13 EURO )
Material: Silver pigment ink and silver colored pencil (as touch up) on black drawing paper.
Dimensions: Picture 10 x 14.7 cm (approx. 3.9 x 5.8 inches), Paper 19.5 x 19 cm (approx. 7.7 x 7.4 inches)

Priced reasonably, considering especially the current world wide economic climate.
If you have extra cash laying around and wish to tip me just add what you feel like on top of the base price ( not required, but appreciated either way ).


BUY

Scroll down for notes on shipping / refund.

Packaged securely between two cardboards in flat envelope at about 80g in weight, the shipment be made in registered air mail. No tracking is available.

Japan post has the superb service called EMS – usually fast, air mail with tracking, with extra cost. The service however, under our current global situation, is unavailable for many countries.

Please check this Japan Post page for availabilities. The shipment, unless you requested otherwise, will be made by “Letter Post / Air”, “Letters / NonStandard-Sized Mail / Ordinary Registered Mail”.

Roughly, the cost will be: 740 JPN to Asia/Australia/Pacific Islands, 810 JPN to Europe/North America and 890 JPN to Africa/South America.

If you are in Japan, I can offer Bank Transfer payment, and Letter Pack shipment ( with tracking ) at 520 JPN.

Additionally, I live in Northern Ibaraki, about 80km south of the famous Nuke Plant that erupted a decade ago. Been here since that fateful year, haven’t seen a godzilla, or better yet, turned into one just yet but who knows, maybe tomorrow I’d wake a godzi. If that bothers you, don’t buy. In any case I don’t recommend licking the parcel.

Oh, forgot to mention. The pigment ink is fairly strong against moisture.

No refund, unless the artwork arrived damaged at your end. Please ask all your questions pre purchase.

All this sounds confusing? Drop me a mail then at info@yukonagai.com. I am off line a lot lately so allow me a day or two to respond.

Thanks for reading this far, and Best,
Yuko the Artzilla.

Planet of the Brave

Dear visitor;
Happy New Year!!

Illustration of a cow.

2021 is Year of the Ox.

The photo is a rubber stamp print drawn from a picture of a girl cow, who “escaped on way to slaughterhouse, smashed through metal fence, broke arm of man trying to catch her then swam to safety on island in lake” therefore deserves a portrait drawn nice and pretty.

Source: “The Independent”, February 16, 2018 – no link / please copy the above sentence within “” and search engine it.

I added a lily in honor of the “Story of Ferdinand”, a little tale about a cow “they called Ferdinand the Fierce” who, “when he got to the middle of the (bull fight) ring he saw the flowers in all the lovely ladies’ hair and he just sat down quietly and smelled”.

Book: (1936) Munro Leaf (words), Robert Lawson (illustration). Many read-along videos on YTube (req. less than 10 minutes).
News Flash: Ferdinand existed in real life!! His name was Civilon and the bull fight – of no fight – took place in 1936. (Source: “Ferdinand – The True Story (2014)” – no link / please copy the….)

Come to think of it….the girl cow deserves a name, too. Why not call her Civille. Brave Civille.

Wishing you a Beautiful Year ahead,
from Civille and artista.
