Looking forward to this event with Tim Fish at JHU Comic Books (32 E 32nd St. NYC)! I will have some limited edition posters on hand AND Amy Chu and Ben McCool will be joining us for this signing for their work on Strange Sports Stories #1. I’ll also have copies of Dolltopia, Tough Love, and some of my other licensed comics available – so come on out!
I’ve been busy getting ready for Saturday’s launch party for Cool Japan Guide – 2pm at Kinokuniya (1073 Ave. of the Americas, NYC)! You can RSVP here! It’s extra exciting because there will be limited edition prints (in the design seen above). Kinokuniya will include a print with each purchase of Cool Japan Guide at this event while supplies last. Also, I have two fantastic sponsors who have provided some great prizes for the party.
Chambre de Sucre has provided their wonderful gourmet Kuranaga blend tea and elegant sugar which comes in a unique array of shapes and colors!
Kanami Chocolate has provided amazing handmade chocolate too! Be sure and check out Kanami’s sweets at J+B Cafe in Brooklyn’s Park Slope neighborhood as well. (located at 300-302 7th street, Brooklyn, NY)
In addition, I’m putting together a few fun Japanese candy bags. Hope to see you then!
