    it's always refreshing looking at your work can't wait to see some of what you've been up to over the holidays.

    Bienalle in Shenzhen

    Oh man, I keep on wanting to write half a book to tell everything that happened, pick out all the best photos and select from a shit load of stuff I did.

    I'm a little short on time recently (a good thing) and i have to just put some stuff up and see whenever all the rest comes otherwise it will be 2012 before i put anything new in here.

    let's just say, everything went really really well for me the last couple of months.

    the Bienalle in Shenzhen was on so many levels an incredible experience. Learned a lot, connected with a lot of my old best friends, made tons of new friends, seen incredible art, and seen many people respond and connect to my work in ways I really hadn't anticipated.

    I made an installation of a selection of my cityscapes in lightboxes.
    I had lambda durst prints in lightboxes and it was a mad lot of work to get eveything done but it was well worth it.

    Had a budget from the Chinese government that didn't really cover it all so I had some more lightboxes with prints made and sold those off.
    The whole thing might go to a gallery in beijing (met a lot of curators of course), and we probably gonna do a little exhibition in the sub-gallery of the New National Museum in Tokyo (word? I'm sure that's gonna take ages to finalise though)...

    I had limited edition prints made that I sold to the museum book store in shenzhen, a lot of them got stolen haha. I wanna go back to China for a couple of months to do some more projects there. Don't know when that will be though, gotta finish some work here.

    I was going to do a shit load of painting back in Tokyo but it just didn't happen yet. So you guys have to make do with train sketches and some photos.

    Will try to put some more stuff up soon. Thanks to everybody for all the feedback and for calling me back in.
    cheers!!!

    This last image I exhibited in another place at the Bienalle.
    Because a lot of the projects in the bienalle were either about the metropolis or about architecture, I wanted to do something more small scale and local.

    This drawing is a tribute to the backstreets of the Shenzhen Handshake Apartments (Wo Shou Lau). These apartments are so close together that neighbours across the street from each other can shake hands. The narrow backstreets are full of function and life - worthy of putting in an exhibit.
    Posca ink and oil bar on print (4,25 x 1,5 m).

    loving it all!!

    you have been such an inspiration to me. i am now contemplating on going through architecture and industrial design for college in a year here. the pleasing thing of it all is that it's so structured and the rules appeal to me.

    anyways enough whining....glad to see things have been going so well for you man, and thanks for such an inspirational update

    Right so I promised I'd be back ... but honestly I can't find anything constructive to say about all this. It's just mind-blowingly fantastic - all of it. Particularly like the exhibition stuff probably because, yeah, I'm a colour-nut. Love the minimalist approach to drawing faces, always a quality that I'm trying to emulate.

    The 4,25 x 1,5 m drawing is really impressive, think it has to be pretty damn awesome in person.
    Congrats on it all, and the mikosa - not really familiar with it but it looks like a very prestigious and selective magazine!
    Thanks for the crits in my book, appreciate them - I'm getting far too little of them lately haha.
    keep well and good luck with work and deadlines!
    ciao!

    As always your linework blows my mind in it's detail, but simplicity. How much for a lightbox so all my drawings can be Tensai tracings? :p

    visiting a silkscreen print studio tomorrow here in tokyo. i hope i can use their facilities and start making some prints there. would love to do some limited edition hand made prints over there. i've been looking forward to doing this for months and i hope to show some of the first trials soon.

    i'll comment back to everybody once i'm up and running again. cheers for all the cool comments and support.

    edit - i'll post some more close-ups of the exhibition and a little movie of it next time i post. oyasumi!!!

    Lok, those light boxes are killer! That would have been one very cool show to attend. I missed seeing all of your chaotic cityscapes and they are as fresh as ever.

    Hope that all has been well with you (it looks so!).

    Hey Awesome, I was in shenzhen last january, but didn't get the chance to go to any galleries. your show looks amazing tho. the light boxes are stylish
    I've been a bit down about my draftsmanship lately, I do warmup exercises but I still don't want to draw in my sketchbook a lot because I don't feel confident in my lines. do you have any tips to help improve line quality and speed?
    That massive train sketch dump must have taken hours to scan, crop, and upload. but it's beautiful.
    thanks
