I'm trying to write down certain key elements a day all in a post, regardless of magnitude. Both great and horrible things happen daily and they're not exclusive. So today, marks two events. Stephane Gauger director of The Owl and The Sparrow passed away. He'll be missed. I voted for the film to be Best Picture at the SF Int'l Asian American Film Festival years back. I painted over the little details by Katsuya Terada. In a way, sad to see them go, but so much more lies underneath these, so it's all ok.
Meet Katsuya Terada and watch him draw digitally Live at GR2. The last time he did this, we had a packed house. We're unsure if this will be his only live appearance this year. We'll keep you posted. This will take place at GR2, Sun Dec 17th 2-5pm. Seating limited.
