Yosuke Kawamura was another great artist featured in the "Tokyo Raw" section of Raw magazine #7. A few years back, I was lucky enough to find a copy of his (Japanese published) 1981 "Exotica" book. Here's a little bio info from the book:

"Born in 1944...he founded 100% Studio with Mr. Nobuhiko Yabuki, Mr. Teruhiko Yumura in 1970. As a freelance illustrator, he has been expressing his own exotic works in the magazines and the advertising field since 1971. And he has been illustrating a cover of "Music-Magazine" since 1976, one of "Angle" since 1978..."

I have two paintings by Kawamura and knew him back in the 70's.
I used to live in Los Angeles and now live in Santa Barbara, and would like to get in contact with him..
