As we’ve seen with many a site and company, 2009 was a very rough year, and our dear Tokyo Art Beat — itself a non-profit — was hit as well. So if you can, PLEASE help TAB keep going by making a donation here. PLEASE!

TAB iPhone App Startup Screen
It may not have come out in November as promised (it will soon though), but here’s a sneak peek at what the startup screen for Tokyo Art Beat‘s iPhone app will look like. The image was created by AQ‘s Eiko Nagase.
Peace Sweater at TAB Shop
Some good news if you’ve been wanting to get your hands on the Peace Sweater — which I covered in my “On Design” column last month — as it’s now available for purchase online through the TAB Shop.
Celebrating 5 Years of TAB
This past Saturday’s 5th anniversary party for Tokyo Art Beat at SuperDeluxe was indeed a blast, and to my absolute surprise I actually won the raffle — I swear, I never win anything. The prize was a pink basket filled with all sorts of goodies, and was handed to me by TAB’s Paul Baron and World of Golden Eggs creator Masashi “Larry” Oiwa (that’s us three above, with the shorty, me, in the middle). My wife is an absolute fan of Golden Eggs — she even watches those “Heidi” shorts they created for Nissan over and over — so was pretty jealous when I told her who handed me the prize.
The entire evening was good fun, with Ian Lynam and Mari Kojima kicking the jams with crazy dance moves in the guises of their new unit, Mammal. Below, Paul and me getting a little closer. Photos are courtesy of Xin Tahara.

I think it’s well worth reminding everyone that tonight (November 7) is Tokyo Art Beat‘s 5th anniversary party at SuperDeluxe. The festivities kick off at 19:00, with a host of activities taking place — check the event page for more details, and print it out to get in for 1,000 yen.
IID’s Fifth Anniversary Party
The Ikejiri Institute of Design (IID) recently celebrated its fifth anniversary in style, and Tokyo Art Beat co-founder Paul Baron has the pics to prove it. It goes without saying, but I wish I could have attended.
