So this was a surprise for me. I'm going to start with the last piece I saw. I knew Simone Legno did one piece for the Sanrio 50th Anniversary show. That was the one with the kaiten zushi. This one I didn't know about and I have to say I really like it. Makes me wish I was rich so I could buy it. Oh well. I like how he was able to get the look of a rainy Tokyo night.
Now in no particular order and not every piece that was there. This is "Family Portrait" by Jesse LeDoux. I really like the retro look of this.
Terry Hoff's "Magic Melody". I thought this work was interesting because I believe the "blobs" are fabric. Or something along that line.
Martin Hsu's "Sanrio's 50th Family Vacation".
I love this piece. "Hey!" by Gary Taxali. I'd love to put this up where I eat but then again I don't have the guts to spend $7000. Sigh.
"Dokidoki Yummychums" by Jason Mecier.
It's made out of jelly beans. Really.
64 Colors, an artist I was not familiar with but definitely going to look up now.
64 Colors prints for sale.
Amy Sol! So happy I got to see one of her works finally. I have enjoyed seeing her creations for a while now. Not surprised that her "Kitty Collecting" was one of the first pieces sold.
Joel "Krook" Raul's "Goldzilla (Hangyodon)". Shiny!
Misha's "Sugar Skulls" series.
Joe Leadbetter's installation. I am tempted to get this print.
Buff Monster's installation.
Sharktoof's "Sanrio Stories"
"Pom Pom Kitty Pie" by Camilla d'Errico. I really like this lemon haired girl and her friends.
"Fishy Greetings" by Kozyndan. Impressive to see this in person.
"Tabo and Friends" by Audrey Kawasaki.
Part of Peekaboo Monster's installation. I think it's going for a "Fight Club" theme...
Right down to the soap.
Dan Goodsell's installation.
Junko Mizuno's "Sanrio Dream". I am so impressed by her work. They also had the pencil sketch for this with little bats painted on the corners of the frame. Adorable.
I almost forgot these two.
Great figures by MAD. Small versions would be welcome.
And my other favorite painting there, by Kukula.
And Simone Legno's other work that was hinted about before the show. Cute take on kaiten zushi.
I like this little detail including something written in Italian, as if he was at the restaurant and left a little drawing for them.
And of course Hello Kitty beer ad.
Well hope this was worth looking at. Glad to be able to share this!
