OFFHAND is a follow-up to CUTTINGS!

4 likes

Hi there! CUTTINGS was an art book from Yuko Ota that collected never-before-seen comics and art from Yuko's sketchbooks. OFFHAND is a spiritual follow-up, collecting the art Yuko did with her non-dominant hand from 2012-2017. EVERYTHING in OFFHAND is drawn left-handed.

 In 2012 Yuko began experiencing wrist issues, so she began drawing with her left hand as a means of catharsis. She kept the practice up and produced so much work that we decided to record her progress chronologically in an art book. 

Left: Drawn in 2012, Right: Drawn in 2014

The book is divided up by year, and each section is bridged by brand new comics that link the narrative from 2012-2017.

It's hard, man
It's hard, man

 

 OFFHAND is presented in the same trim size as CUTTINGS– they're designed to look nice on the shelf together. It's available in regular and limited edition. Check it out!
