Artist Statement: This cover is meant to reflect Asia's chaos, warmth, and ebullience. The streets packed with cars, the confluence of traditional and modern architecture — for me, these are defining characteristics of this expansive and nebulous continent. As for the butterflies, they symbolize new beginnings and migration, a metaphor for both the widespread Asian diaspora and the birth of the CJA itself.
