森 3 trees and … 3 flowers

Have you been around Nucleus Gallery‘s website lately? Look around the upcoming shows … and you might find there’s a surprise or two in november in store for you around Los Angeles … and not only … ;)

update
Well, the cat’s out of the bag. Might as well give you some details myself. As you might have read on November 4th Nucleus is having us three trees over at their gallery again … but the main event are three amazing illustrators that we are sooo excited to have here from Japan. Yoko Tanji, Icco Sasai, and Wakako Katayama I’ve been loving their work on the net for years and it was a really pleasure to meet them in person last february in Tokyo, Yoko Tanji even joined us all day for SketchCrawl. So if you don’t know their work these three flowers are gonna blow you away. Wonderful wonderful illustrations you will want to own. And on top of all that Tadahiro, Ronnie and I are gonna be debuting and signing (keeping my fingers crossed on this one as we’re finishing design on this right now, hope the printers make it in time) the art book ” 森 3 trees make a forest” published by Gingko Press. The hard cover book is gonna have all the pieces from last year’s artshow and more. We are so excited to fully feature Tadahiro’s work in a book for the first time in the US. Can’t wait to hold one in my hand. It’s even already up for preorder on Amazon. So … there you have it. Three trees and three flowers.

One note- Amazon lists an early estimate we had of a 84 pages book, but we are aiming now for 128 pages.

    [...] OMG. Remember the exhibit I really wanted to go to few months ago? Well, guess what? They’re doing it again. With a twist. One of my all time favorite illustrators, Yoko Tanji, will be there as well! This is just too much. I MUST go. Arrrrrrgh!!! And this time, I will get some of their prints. 必ず。(via Enrico’s blog Posted by jinnie Filed under Illustration []     [...]

    E,
    will there be a “Three flowers make a Bouquet” book as a result of this show?
    Heh

  11. John Hoffman Says:

    Aw man, that is going to be GREAT! I’m going to be in LA right before that, may have to plan a trip back for then! Can’t wait for the book!!!

  12. Louie del Carmen Says:

    Congratulations on the book! I can finally talk about it now after promising Ronnie to keep the lid on it for so long… I am not familiar with your three new imports from Japan and I will be spending some time getting to know their work. Anyways I am excited to see you, big bro and Tadahiro-san in November in Alhambra!

  13. Clio Says:

    Argh, I wish I could go to the opening night of this – so exciting!! I’ll be waiting for the book, too!

  14. Enrico Says:

    Jamie- believe it or not that was the “working title” for the artshow … but sounded a tad too cheesy afterall … The three ladies though are actually making a book just for the occasion !

    John- Hope to see you there …

    Luoie- Thanks Luoie, I hope we’re gonna have it in time … it’s really tight! See you in November !

    Clio- Sounds good Clio ! Hopefully we can upload the cover of the book very soon … also on Amazon …
