For good times, choose Suntory times.


Hi folks,
Japan has been very hot recently and I struggle to cope in the humidity.
There is too much work to do at school and not enough time before my screening!
so today I took a little time out and painting things.
1. Takuro's skateboard. (i hope he pays me..)
2. A cupboard. Someone fobbed off their cupboard on me and i need to be able to get rid of it (or fob it off onto someone else) by the time i leave so I decided to make it better.


That is a little toy car glued on for fun:)
Here is my personal animating space at the university:
Its ok. quiet.
I will show everyone when i have more painted things or work.

The treehouse creation group!!

The treehouse group are a group of people making nature friendly art, involving creating houses in precarious places. They have a cafe (in a tree) in a backstreet of Harajuku that me and Anna went to see yesterday. The house is beautiful, and we ate a bagel and drank beer in a huge pine tree.
It was beautifully made, check them out and if you're in Harajuku go have a look. their website is also worth seeing for the treehouses they have made.

Right next to the treehouse happened to be the headquarters of the Design Festa that I went to, I spoke to an Australian guy who told it was opened in '98 and now the festa has grown to be the biggest design festival in the world. quite an accomplishment. The whole building was covered in scultpure and structures and there was not a surface that wasn't painted.

Right after this I was asked to be a model... by a random in the street. maybe theres a job here?
Watch this space...

Shinjuku!

Last week I took a brief excursion to the land of shinjuku (my first time, but also, oddly, the first time for a girl I have met, so me and anna went together :)


My first visit to the hustle and business of Tokyo's tallest district.
Shinjuku stands at the center of Japans success in the worlds economy, and is the most expensive land in the City. The west houses the government Metropolitan building which is dubbed 'tax tower' due to its US$1billion cost.


East Shinjuku is a place for highend fashion and entertainment for men. the 250,000 (predominantly men) that work in the west part everyday come through here the kicks etc..
Me and Anna found a Hello kitty shop, some expensive bags, a healthy transexual population, but the best part is the cluster of neon lights with the skyline as a backdrop. Has an extremely energetic and unreal feel to it.
I didnt really a get a chance to appreciate this place properly so I plan to make a trip back soon to stroll around some more.
