There won’t be much here, but I just thought I’d mention that I did attend the opening reception for what is apparently an annual Kappa-themed art exhibit held in Ikebukuro. I forgot my camera, so there’s no pictures, but other people have taken care of that.
It goes without saying that a bunch of Kappa-centric works were on display. What was interesting was all the different ways in which people spun the theme. Works ranged from epic movie poster-esque paintings, to more traditionally rendered imagery, to Matt and Mr. Marugame’s Kappa Machinder! The sheer amount of pure creative force surrounding me for those 90 minutes was astounding.
Some socializing was also done. I’m not a terribly social person, but I did exchange words with the aforementioned Matt Alt, David Marx, and Jean Snow, along with a few other people who either don’t have websites, or I don’t know what their website is!
Overall it was good fun. The display will be up for a few more days–til the 21st–so stop by and take a look if you’re in the area!
