Even though I am on a low sodium diet, I loved working with the talented and kind crew at The Boston Bacon Truck (in Boston naturally)! It was also so cool to see how well Ardon Vinyl applied the wrap. If you are in Boston, please stop by and say hello to the Bacon Truck! You can also view a few more angles and more bacon friends HERE.

PSFK asked me to paint images of home on the walls of their "Future Of Home Living" space. It was such a fun project. If you are in NYC you can reserve a tour of the space and see the cool gadgets we all NEED in our future homes. The exhibit runs until 8/16. You can see more of the project HERE.

Los Angeles Magazine for the great assignment illustrating Vin Scully's "Ode to Summer". We tried to fit in as many "summer clouds" as we could. While the Dodgers left Brooklyn long ago, they are one of my favorite teams to watch. I was even on the Dodger screen once for 2 seconds while catching a game in LA. Summer, Baseball and Los Angeles... pretty fun!

It was a blast painting and drawing not only dogs but cats too, for Tufts Veterinary Magazine. A big thanks to Art Director and designer superstar Kelly McMurray for this fun assignment. You can see the entire issue and the other 8 cat and dog spots as a PDF here.

I made over 175 original ink and painted cards to be dispensed by the "Gutai Card Box" at the "Gutai Splendid Playground show" running at the Guggenheim until May 8th, 2013. The current show and "Gutai Card Box" pay tribute to the original from the Japanese exhibition in 1962 .The visitors would be dispensed "art" and the Guggenheim wanted to recreate this activity along with work from the original 1962 show. It was so much fun making quick pieces like this, of course with Chubu's help. A big thank you to the Guggenheim for letting me partake in this event. A few more pics can be found here.

This exceptional book marries the two traditions with charming naïf illustration and clear text. On opposing pages, a boy explains the differences between outings with his American pop pop to the stadium and with his Japanese ji ji at the dome. The book’s deceptive simplicity includes sophisticated cultural touches: America’s paper tickets offer a charming contrast to the Japanese scannable QR code version. Meshon’s first picture book is a definite home run. (Kakiiin!)

"Take me out to the YAKYU" , my first children's book is up to bat! It's a personal story about my love for Baseball in Japan and America with the occasional snack, bath, and bus that turns into a train thrown in. You can pick up a copy from Amazon or at your favorite local bookstore. PLAY BALL!
