About Cardcaptor Sakara:
Sakura Kinomoto is the protagonist of the Japanese shōjo manga series CARDCAPTOR SAKURA created by the manga group Clamp. She unexpectedly discovers magical powers after freeing a set of magical cards. In order to avoid chaos, she must recover the cards. In 1998, Madhouse adapted the manga into a 70-episode anime series. North American studio Nelvana later obtained the rights and premiered the TV series under the title "Cardcaptors" on Kids' WB in 2000.
About the Creation:
The first North American image of Cardcaptors is a part of history. Steven Ahola was part of a studio that competed for the North American rights, and designed a print for the proposal which summarized the story premise of a girl and her bear chasing magical cards.
About the Artist:

From Beauty and the Beast, 7 Little Monsters, and Babar to Corduroy, Franklin, Little Bear, Ned's Newt, Red Wall, Rescue Heroes, and Tales From the Cryptkeeper, he knows no limits when it comes to storytelling. His penchant for nostalgia is undeniable--just check out his hashtag #thisismychildhood!
