I draw this piece is for the show at Graphite. I showed my mom this image through e-mail, she said the girl looked like me when I was a little girl. Maybe she is right. It took me a long time to buy something with my money.
At the opening night, many guests made comments on my works, and it seemed that ladies not only Japanese but also American found their childhood memories in this piece.
It is rare to see this old candy store nowadays, but the store still exists in our memory.
Thank you for coming to the opening night!
Hope you had a good time.
The show is going on till Jan. 16 at Graphite.
Last but not at least, belated Happy New Year everyone, wishing you the very best for the year of 2011!
