2002. I think it was a fateful encounter. I love at first sight.
I instinctively thought that Yusuke Nakamura was the only one to paint our jackets !!!

I’m not so cute, but I’m holding a panda, I think it’s like me very.
But I wish I could be seen as cute as this.
I was surprised because the way the head was tied and the panda were drawn very correctly.
It’s also nice to have feminine sorrow.
Masakazu Ishiguro (Cartoonist)
I am terrified that Yusuke’s genius’s Taoyuan Township paintings are put together in one book.
It will surely be an art book that you will never get tired of.
There is no doubt that I didn’t get tired of seeing the one picture I got when I was a student for 10 years.
Hitoshi Odajima (illustrator / designer)
I like Nakamura-kun’s paintings, which seem to fit all the chaos of the minimal and compact city of Osaka in a glass box.
Although it is hand-painted, it has a virtual feeling with no direction like in the WEB environment.
There is no pain there. The shadow I’m looking for is a little sad, but it’s comfortable.
Boys and girls sympathize with such a box garden world and want to enter inside.
With such a passport as a desire, we can instantly become Yusuke Nakamura’s inhabitants of the world.
