I’m really enjoying the artwork by Yumiko Kayukawa, an artist from the Hokkaido region of Japan. Seems that she’s going to be having some shows in the US and Germany, although there’s no mention on her site of anything happening in Tokyo anytime soon. I will keep my eye open for one though.
I should also mention that a lot of the Japanese related links I’ve been putting up lately have come from the vastly entertaining Geisha Asobi weblog. Your one-stop shop for anything/everything wacky coming out of Japan.
