Autumn US Tour 2009 [day01]

I plan to meet with Neopets friends today.

my lodging is location in downtown this time.
It is possible to go from Hollywood to Glendale by one bus. However, it is necessary to change a few buses from the downtown to Glendale.

This town is a spectacle that is done the division maintenance well and is very beautiful.
We ate lunch in Mexican in a big shopping mall named Americana. Everyone did a lively, happy conversation always.

Shane is always doing the drawing. He was drawing even in the paper place mat of the table.

I returned to Americana after the meal. And, I drank coffee while reading. I have inadvertently dozed because it is very warm.
I wanted to go to the gallery in Glendale. However, it was not possible to go because the bus had not come.

A lot of pumpkins were sold! Because it soon will be Halloween!!
An orange pumpkin make me happy feelings.

I ask to shop guy "May I take a picture?" I took a picture a lot because I had answered, "Of course". hehehe

These small pumpkins were the loveliest series.

I only went to Glendale and came back. However, when having returned, 8 PM had been passed.

Supper tonight ate a breast of the chicken and hot Sand of beef with Deli of Ralph 's.
I do not think that the amount is too large. However, it was not able to eat everything completely. Has my stomach become small?

It was scheduled to go to the gallery in Glendale in today's schedule and to do business. However, the connection of the bus was not able not to go well and to go. And, it was not possible to go to the Kitty show. It is regrettable.
I will go to the Kitty show of Royal-T again tomorrow, and go to the gallery show of MonkyHouse after that.
The number of buses decreases on Saturday.
It is necessary to do an efficient plan because length-of-stay is short this time.

I'll participate to "Vintage poster show" in Los Angeles in end of this year.

See you tomorrow!

Autumn US Tour 2009 [day00]

'Three Apples’ Exhibit Celebrates All Things Hello Kitty For 35th Anniversary running from October 23 to November 15 at Royal/T in Culver City, CA. I visited America because I had been invited to VIP party of this show.

I decided the visit to America one week ago. Therefore, it was not a situation in which the air ticket and the stay destinations were able to be chosen. However, it managed to obtain the airline ticket. (Special Thanks for my Great Manager : Kiyo!!)

It drew because there was a small bird at Narita's waiting time though it was an airport.

It's the morning about 10:30 that I arrived at Los Angeles. The passport control and Baggage Claim were very smooth this time.

The hotel is a Figueroa hotel in the downtown. I haven't seen you for a long time. This hotel is used well as location with the movie and the TV drama in the indoor scene of an ethnical style.

The seat monitor of the airplane was out of order. In addition, four children were in a front seat.And, with the man of the left and lights the reading light. I was not able to sleep for that. Therefore, when it reached the hotel in Los Angeles at last, it took a nap at once for two hours.

It's a hamburger if i's said the United States after all.If it doesn't first eat this hamburger, English cannot be spoken well.
I ordered the fish dish and the salad. The half size of the United States is a full size of Japan. ummmmm....

Supper was finished, and I moved to the Culver city by taxi. The time required and the charge are almost proportional to the taxi of Los Angeles. It was almost 20 dollars because the time required to the destination was 20 minutes this time.

Here is the first maid cafe in the west coast. Terribly cute girls were very kind.
The outside of the hall and the inside had come until the person overflowed!

The organizer said, "More people come to the public opening".
The number of exhibitions is about 80 works. It became very good study for me.

Moreover, the layout and the exhibition method of the hall became references very much.
Some sculptures were exhibited. This work was very popular especially.

Artist's individuality is demonstrated enough as for any work. It is a really happy show.

The work of three people from my town Sapporo had been exhibited.
Yumiko Kayukawa

A lot of people of such a fashion also had come to the hall.

After all, a real doll has power!! I want to ask the people of a real doll for the model of the sketch.
I entered VIP room. It met Yoshiki of X-Japan.

The owner of Royal-T introduced a lot of collectors.

The first red carpet!!! hehehehe

There was no composure that straightened the collar because it was not accustomed.

It is a limited souvenir at VIP night.
It seems to be ThreeApple limitation by all the 35th anniversary.

There was "Book (selection catalog by the curator)" in the inside, too!!

I wanted to see this very much!! Only the sculpture of two works was published.

IF : Frozen

"Frozen" is not comfortable for us. However, "Frozen" is a comfortable space, and is indispensable for them. A one-sided idea might perplex the other side.

IF : Flying

As for Sapporo of this season, there are a lot of days of the strong wind. It seems to fly if the umbrella is opened when it rains on the day with a strong wind. However, how is it wonderful if it's possible to fly as freely as Mary Poppins over the sky?
