Happy New Year! After moving to Fukuoka, it took a little while for me to get my aging engine warmed up. Happily, that period seems to be sliding behind with the new year, and I am fully revved and roaring into 2012.
We begin with the 2012 Cut Paper Art Calendar. It began its life as a project on Kickstarter, where it was successfully funded. Printing is finally done, and the first few batches to the Kickstarter backers have all been shipped out. Happily, there are still a limited number of calendars left!
Calendars are available from the shop at US $30 apiece, including shipping. Jump on over and click the red "Buy International" button for everywhere outside Japan. If you want to buy more than one copy, please contact me; maybe I can help you save a little money on shipping! For those of you in Japan, the cost is ¥2500 (shipping included). Just select the "Buy Japan" button.
Next up is the 新春クラフトマルシェ / New Year’s Marche Crafts at Seibu Shibuya. This group show of some of my newest art was a last minute addition to the schedule, and I'm afraid that I didn't have much time to let people know about it. I myself was unable to take the trip north to Tokyo, but one of my good friends snapped a photo of some of my work. You can see it here.
Coming Soon, there's a bunch of new art that very few people have ever laid eyes on. There's a very cool interview I had the pleasure to do recently that I can't wait to share with everyone. Not to mention all of the little, secret projects that are coming together to make 2012 an amazing, art-filled 366 days.
