The Gallery space for room 301 was very nice and spacious, enough room to play some hacky sack.

Portrait of Belinda PresentPortrait of Imogen PresentPortrait of Imogen and Belinda Present, I drew a few hundred of these because I didn’t prepare flyers earlier.
It was a bit hectic some times when I was running out of cards and trying to
draw as the people kept coming in, but it seemed to go well with the people though.

although my Japanese is very broken so I hope they understood what I was trying to say.

Portait of BelindaKatatsumori, I think I asked what a snail was in Japanese so many times, I just couldn’t remember it.

Going to Japan in March 2010 for Exhibition

November 1, 2009 § Leave a comment

Okay, just booked a flight to Japan out of randomness of cheap air fairs. I’ve been to Tokyo too many times now and I really need some sort of reason for going this time. So I decided I’m going to have an exhibition at Design Fiesta HarajukuĀ in March 2010. With only two paintings done, I’ll try and have about ten in total by the time I go, minimum seven. I don’t know if this is possible or not, but I figured If I’m gonna get anywhere fast with something its by jumping in the deep end. I just hope I don’t drown.

I had made visit to Design Fiesta Gallery in 2008 and the place seem to have a very nice vibe to it. There was a lot of people wondering through the place out of curiosity which is always a good sign.

Traveling through China 23rd August to 5th October 2009. First stop Malaysia, then Tianjin, Beijing, PingYao, Xian, ChengDu, ChongQing, Guilin, Shenzhen, ShunDe, HongKong. There is still a lot more to explore, would like to go back and try the east coast heading through Shanghai to Taiwan and maybe boat to Okinawa.
