Random Musings Art Show 2009 - Pink Cow
(Entered Nov. 11, 2009)
  Recent Random Musings:

2 years, a bit of blood, a lot of sweat, a couple of tears, and 33 paintings later, my artwork is once again on display at the Pink Cow in Shibuya.
First things first, thanks to those of you who made it out to my reception held last Sunday (Nov. 8th). I appreciated the great support from about 20 of my hipster friends and acquaintances, and I managed to sell two more paintings!

I ended up displaying a total of 23 paintings (out of 33 done in 2008-2009, some already sold, some were commissions and some didn't make the final cut) compared to only 11 at my first show.
Some advice to struggling artists in Tokyo, the train/subway system is far from the ideal way to get your paintings to and from your venue. Still, the only other choices would have been renting a car or sending them by courier, both which would've cost me more money than I was prepared to spend, so the trains it was. At least nobody kicked my paintings coming in and out of the train this time around...
If you're wondering how I managed to get 23 paintings, 3 of them a meter on a side, to the Pink Cow by myself, I didn't. I couldn't have done it without Kumi to help me. Not only did she pull a big suitcase filled with all my smaller paintings, she also helped set things up; hammering nails, tying string, attaching information cards, etc. Thanks Kumi!
My art will be on display in the Pink Cow until November 29th, so if you happen to be in the area, drop by for some food and have a look!
