final score: sold 12 unsold 8 – the unsold, if anyone interested, being: brains, butch, lora larva, love bombs, mister square, radioactive rabbit, snot ‘n’ shit and zelda – posters and pins sold out – but altho akatako is screaming at me to make more, the puzzles not quite so popular here (as i sorta suspected) – still some left over, which i think span are keeping for their shop
weather this time of the year is usually glorious but for much of the duration of toy box it’s been really lousy – sun finally came out today, the last day – so healthy streams of visitors finally (gothlolis and old perverts and my wife’s more “normal” customers) – right up till the very end when we was tearing it all down, one more girl came to view what was still left on the wall – a fan but had only just learnt about the exhibition from a fellow twitterer or something
the wall of pencil “roughs” had been disturbingly popular – particularly with the more obsessed fans, anxious to see “the process”? – i used to throw such embarrassing stuff away and only began saving my scribbles after the alice book – but i guess it might now become a mainstay of future trevor brown exhibitions…?
as usual i got no offers of work or anything from it – but my wife now has yaso magazine chasing her
and the girl who stole my heart this exhibition was rin-san – typically of course i am most obsessed over the girls who are most obsessed over me – but rin is an ever so small ever so slight waif of a girl straight out of a (future) trevor brown painting – she gave me a fan letter in japanese last saturday – but as my wife (my interpreter!) was busy noisily yapping nonstop with her friends we couldn’t do much more than stare at each other in duplicate dumbstruck awkwardness – she wrote a blog on the encounter in which she described my hesitance as perfectly befitting of trevor brown-ness and endeared me to her even more – she turned up again today to my delight – but maybe the novelty of meeting god has worn off for her now and she’s bored with me : P
also want to say thank you to the artist, a girl named akira, who gave me this – hand cut at microscopic scale!
ps – found her web site / blog – she goes under the name rain glass
