Bloom at the Nikkei National Museum

Some people bid on my picture, so I was happy about that.

I donated an ink drawing to Bloom, the Ink-themed fundraiser at the Nikkei National Museum, so I got to enjoy the evening for free (which may defeat the purpose of a fundraiser). Besides the inspiring work of around 60 artists, Open Sesame laid out an Ink Brush Banquet, including a rice dish with squid ink, delightful MC Tetsuro Shigematsu showed off his impeccable moustache, innovative calligrapher Kisyuu produced a daring large scale calligraphy, and eclectic Sansho Daiko performed a evocative taiko performance. I also enjoyed speaking with artist Mariko Ando, whose etchings I had seen earlier at Visual Space.
