Miliyah Kato hand-draws cover of first novel, remains the new Picasso/Souseki

Singer-songwriter Kato Miliyah's upcoming first novel, "Umareta mama no Watashi wo" (9/22) will feature a cover hand-drawn by the artist herself. The book, which Kato worked on for a year, will be the story of a 22 year old nude painter who cannot find love, and the cover represents that by featuring the sketch of a naked woman.

On the seventh year of her career, Kato released "M BEST" which hit #1 on the Oricon weekly charts. This has been her third consecutive chart-topping album and has passed the 270,000 mark as of this week.

Wasn't sure if this was NSFW but I put it under a cut to be safe. Anyway, she's so talented. Singing, dancing, song-writing, drawing, and novel writing... is there anything she can't do?

I do like the art, really.

Yeah I was thinking the same thing.
You can barely see it.

I know. You can barely see it, and it's that generic, what-you-get-when-you-automatically-type font. It's like using Times New Roman on an official release. T___T; (Yes, I'm looking at you, Maeda Atsuko.)

Times New Roman makes my stomach hurt.

I know. Memories of MLA essays... And just general grossness...

The art's wonderful. The font is ugly and doesn't compliment it well. Font style doesn't fit well with the art (it's too blocky and clean) and colour is just unattractive when placed with the art. Dx

I really hope she picked that font and total design herself, because if not, she's probably pissed that someone did that to her artwork. X'DD;;; (I would be.)

Ugh, if she picked the font, she better have a good reason. The font is too ugly.
I'd be pissed too if someone wrote over my art with an ugly font. Dx
