Mitsukazu Mihara (三原ミツカズ Mihara Mitsukazu?, born October 17, 1970, in Hiroshima) is an influential Japanese illustrator who helped to influence the Gothic Lolita look through her illustrations, particularly as the cover illustrator for the first eight volumes of the Gothic & Lolita Bible.[1] In 1994, she won a contest in the Japanese manga magazine Feel Young with her debut "Keep Those Condoms Away From Our Kids" (ゴムのいらない子供たち "Gomu no Iranai Kodomo-tachi"?), later published by Shodensha in her short story collection IC in a Sunflower (集積回路のヒマワリ Shūseki Kairo no Himawari?).[2]

She resides in Osaka, Japan.[1]
