to share the air on beautiful sunday

Those "what will be will be" stories have passed thorough the line I drew.

It's just kinda funny that not everything goes well like I planned.
Those "what will be" stories I captured at first,
easily turn around and run into the total different direction at the end.
People always call it as "timing" "coincidence" and "destiny" sometimes.
Feel like, somebody tricked me and laid a plot instead of my future vision I saw.

The biggest problem is that, the plot and the direction somebody adjusted,
is always "exactly right" for my life.
I'm not sure that "I" make it right or it just "becomes" right.
It warns me the problems in my dream like as the alert,
and try its best to make me give up my bad-graded plot.
what the hell

The excuse I say when the thing is not going well,
is always same as the reason I speak when it succeeded. 
So I bring a big pencil (as my height) and try to extend the line I drew,
to make my life as my life even just a little bit.

that's how I draw the line.


なるようにするべく敷いた伏線の横を、
なるようになるがすりぬけて行った。

それっていつも不思議に思うの。
思い描いた未来は、私にとって「正解」であるはずなのに、
それがほんとに「正解」でない場合、全然違う方向に走り出す。
おそらく人はそれを、タイミングとよび、偶然とよび、
ときに恥ずかしげもなく、運命とか言っちゃう。
なんていうか、知らないなにかの力で、人生が、自動で修正されてるみたいで。

困ったことに、修正された方向は、いつだって正しい。
それは「私」が正しかったことにしているのか、
正しく「なる」のかは、やっぱりよくわからないけど、
私が間違ったことをしているときにかぎって、
夢での警告は顕著だし、私の落第点の思惑を、全力で曲げにかかる。
なにそれ。

上手くいかないことの言い訳は、成功したときの内訳と、いつも同じ。
だから、その敷いた伏線を、大きな鉛筆で、横にのばすの。
すこしでもそれが、私の人生であるように。

線を描くよ。

Tatzu Nishi's Installation at Columbus Circle

Today, I went to see this installation at Columbus Circle.
The artist Tatzu Nishi's work.

He covered up the statue of Columbus with the living room.
so we basically can relax, sit, and see the actual statue in the living room.
That was so much fun!


the height of the statue was like 13 foot? so the view was nice too:)
Happy Sunny Sunday!


My Birthday Dinner!

September 19th was my birthday:)
I decided to have a small dinner at my place.
That was supposed to be "small dineer" not party!
because I only have 6 sets of everything, at my place:(
But I ended up with inviting 11 people...
it's just sooo difficult to limit people, ugh

but that was sooooo much fuuuun!!
thank you so much for all the birthday wishes:)

start with this...

tadaaaa 

My sweet friend Jaz chan made this cake for me! sweeet!!

and thank you so much!!



SNEAK PEAK: MY DRAWING BOOK

SNEAK PEAK: MY DRAWING BOOK WILL BE PUBLISHED in THIS YEAAARRR

I mean, I got this offer like back in 2009?
I just did not really have many art works,
because I have just graduated from the school at that point:(
I remember that I needed to collect "all" my paintings/drawings for that...

I don't know how people think about showing their own "old works"?
I'm still learning myself, so that it's kinda embarrassing to show some old works!
But if it's not about me,
it is true that I want to see some old works of the artist.
So it may be alright? (I'm hoping)

anyway, I will keep you updated for its release too:)

thanks!



実は、この秋、あ、冬になるかもですが、
画集が発売される予定だったりします!

お話をもらったのは、もう3年前のハナシで、
実は!当時(卒業してそんなに経ってないとき)の段階で、
いきなり50作品出してください、というようなかんじで、
え!50?!と思いながら、
かなりの量をわしゃわしゃと、かき集めました。
いや、だって、他の卒業したての人たちがどうかはわからないのですが、
その頃、50個も見せられる作品って、なかったよーー

なので、おそらく...かなり古い作品とかも入っていると思われるので、
ちょっと不安...!
学生の頃なんて、それはそれは、いろんな人に影響されたりもしてるし...
でも画集が出るのはやっぱりすごくうれしいなぁ
また詳細はアップデートします:)

来年には、学研さんから、私自身の(絵・文)の絵本も出す予定なので、
たのしみーです。
