...where do I send it

This picture was drawn while waiting to have my modem disconnected. There was one Japanese IT teacher talking to customer service, and another English teacher translating to me. It’s looking out from the office into the school entrance. I couldn’t help myself but draw a picture as there were some tempting pens in front of me.

Bad dream...

Design Festa Vol.21: Booth Area Report

Here is a comment from the DF Vol 21 site. Looking at the booth area (you can see the original at DF Vol 21: Booth Area Report)

Greg hails from Melbourne, Australia and indulges in painting scenes of pop culture in Japan and his native Australia. He displays a minimalistic yet expressionalistic approach to painting and loves using inpasto to create a grainy effect.http://au.geocities.com/gregtippett/

Replay: Enki Party

For some reason I’m think back to this Enki party back in late 2004. An expensive Japanese drinking party, where teachers come out of there shells throw insults to each other and forget about them the next day. You also find out that not only the JTE (Japanese Teachers of English) speak English but other teachers do too.

A little known exhibition is being held at Sugita Cafe, about a 3 minute walk from the West side of Warabi Station. And is open from 10am - 5.45pm, and will finish on the 6th of June. Probably no one will go to this exhibition. I’m not attending the opening night as I`m catching up with The Koich on Saturday night.

The artists who are showing are Kris Brostrom, drawings/cartoons, Tennesse, USA; Eliss Maehara, photography, Washington, USA; RM Tunick, photography, California, USA; Zoe Colbertson, photography, Peensylvania, USA; Elicia O`reilly, pottery, Sydney Australia; Kim Dalton, photography, Missouri, USA; Alex Short, photography, London, England; Paul Hanna, photography, London, England; Greg, drawing/painting, Melbourne, Australia
