Installation of Post It 8. Hopefully a video coming soon.
Thanks Kat Rivera for some pics.
That’s Leecifer and Aaron Brown, both of who will be in an exhibition at GR2 in 2013.
You may know Kiyoka Ikeda from Gargamel and you know Mike Kelly (Le Merde) together they’re combining forces to create a new body of work. Here’s a preview of what’s to come.
Moai in the middle has to be a nod to Tokyo’s Moai at Shibuya station (Easter Island), Sphinx and the pyramids. I dig this kind of thinking.
Coasters! Following up on his last set of coasters, here’s a preview of the new upcoming set.
While production for the fan maligned live-action Akira adaptation may have screeched to a halt as of January 5, 2012, Otomo Katsuhiro–the original creator for the manga and anime–is ever busy with an upcoming art exhibit at the 3331 Chiyoda Arts Centre in Tokyo, Japan, showcased between April 9th to March 30th, 2012. The Genga Exhibition, as it is called, already has a catalogue available for pre-order on Amazon.co.jp.
So far, unpublished art for Kaba 2 will be showcased alongside pieces from his other work.
In addition to that, a special discussion will occur live on UStream between Katsuhiro-san, Blood: The Last Vampire‘s Katsuya Terada, and Perfect Blue‘s Hisashi Higuchi on April 9th, 8 p.m. Japan local time.
Guests are required to purchase their tickets in advance at Lawson’s convenience stores for admittance at a designated time. What’s better is that this is an opportunity to geek out for a good cause. Thirty percent of ticket proceeds go towards helping victims of the 3/11 Earthquake.
Nothing’s set in stone, but I’ll definitely try to make it out there sometime in April or May and report further on the exhibit.
