modern kinbaku techniques

beginner level instruction dvd by hajime kinoko – completely gaijin friendly: region-free dvd and fully subtitled in english – and as a shibari tuition dvd it looks excellent – very detailed and very clear instructions – rope and obliging girlfriend not included – in stock at akatako

^ beginner level?, yikes!

^ re-subtitled by tb, heh!

of course i wanted it as a nananano fanboy – it’s kinda unusual to see her in this kutesy kawaii chic – i bought at hajime kinoko’s new and all-too-brief red exhibition (ends tomorrow!) – nano arrived at the gallery, just as i was getting it signed, rolling eyes and collapsing into characteristic giggles


a rare trevor brown excursion into the third dimension – this was intended for a nananano cosplay photo of a new tb painting – but she may not do the image because of some other difficult elements (she’s reluctant to cheat by using cg) – whatever, it was fun to make, and i’m reasonably happy with it despite my minimal sculpting abilities – so it may still end up as an objet d’art in itself at our exhibition (october)

red : the book

new hajime kinoko rope art book out today! – a confusingly similar cover to nawanano but this time solely devoted to his highly impressive red rope / white background works – A4 size, 100 pages, full colour photos throughout – some notes on his red exhibition of last year and a photo shoot, all translated into english – and a one page interview, sadly untranslated – ¥3000 in japan, get! – akatako has it on order, as well as stocking other hajime kinoko goods

(oh, nananano’s nipples airbrushed out on the cover – facebook friendly!)
