"nekodama-girl" cosplayed by nananano for "trecos" - an offshoot photo below - she also wanted to do "nekodama-boy", haha!
the paintings were originally ordered, back in 2016, by my wife (hippiecoco) for display in a teddy bear exhibition she was having - but that got cancelled - "nekodama-girl" finally unveiled, and sold, at the "trecos" exhibition - "nekodama-boy" my wife is clinging on to

cover of the book! - officially released 6 february but should be ready for the exhibition starting 1 february - there’s a book-signing ordeal at the gallery on saturday 3 feb - altho a different publisher (atelier third) it's a similar size book to the usual trevor brown books i think - 80 pages - mostly full page pics and enlarged pics - and then a 16 page b/w "how to make tre-cos" appendix - nananano text (in japanese of course) and lots of little pix - book available for pre-order on japan amazon - atelier third also accept foreign orders - i imagine akatako in america might stock later - and timeless in europe have already ordered lots of copies
exhibition is at span art gallery 1 to 6 february - i only have seven paintings on show (others are sold) - so, once again, exhibiting the pencil preliminary scribbles - mari shimizu also included in the exhibition with a doll inspired by me (and nananano?!) - and i’ll be showing an old mari shimizu “doll” from my “collection” along with a little painting inspired by it - unsure if mari is sitting in on the book-signing thing - probably i guess…?
