genki things


package in the post of assorted gifts left with span art gallery during my recent “trajectory [or tragedy?!] of trevor brown” exhibition – thank you loud grape and freaks circus – and especial thanks for the bagful of goodies from genk (sic) aka sweetrubberberry – besides terada katsuya, i think i can detect a trevor brown influence in his works? (…which is cool!)

a sort of low key exhibition – but provided an opportunity to meet up with the model nananano – a fan of my work – tho, needless to say, the idolisation goes both ways – i brought a copy of lilith in the mirror for her to sign – she was playfully reluctant to do so as not her book she feels – we didn’t talk much actually (mutual friend dollhouse noah was acting as interpreter) but nevertheless still managed to “bond” a little – as we parted ways she squealed down the street “kawaii!” after me – huh?! – acutely embarrassing but (dubiously) flattering?

“the alice look”


trevor brown at the v&a museum of childhood in london, gosh! – i was fully expecting my inclusion in this to be cancelled (rejected by some stuffy overseer who always has the last say) so i’m very happy my alice is there as promised in all her pantie-flashing glory – the exhibition focuses on alice as a fashion icon and runs until november 1st – go check it out if in london this summer, the museum is well worth a visit
