I went this exhibition "Wolves and wild lands in the 21st century" at the Burke museum of natural history & culture. You can tell that how much I love wolves by the top page of my website. I was actually raised by a wolf (because my Ninja father and Geisha mother were too busy). It was a small exhibition, but I was so exited to be very close to real (stuffed) wolves. The white one is a Arctic wolf. dosen't he look like a brother of Princess Mononoke?

バーク自然史&文化博物館で催し中の、狼の展示会「Wolves and wild lands in the 21st century」に行ってきました。サイトの扉絵でもご存知の通り、私は狼が大好き。実は狼に育てられました(忍者の父と芸者の母は多忙だったため)。展示の数は少ないけど、本物の狼(の剥製)を間近で見れて興奮して一緒に記念撮影。白いのは北極オオカミです。もののけ姫の兄弟みたいでしょ?
There was a small table at the entrance, with post it notes and pencils. People would leave messages and wolf drawing on a board. I'm not a kid but I drew a howling wolf and left it on the board. I came back a few minutes later but my message was gone. Who took away my message for wolf!

It was my first visit to the museum,  and I didn't know that they have dinosaur and animal fossils. I should have come earlier. I am really into this stuff.

Anyways, I'm preparing a new print release right now. Soon I'll share more details. Until then!

FINALLY summer has come in Seattle. So yesterday, the 4th July I had picnic in the park. It feels so good to be in the sun. I even got rash from sunshine! Seattle's summer is short, so I feel pressure to make plans to go out. As I'm the famous Ice cream monster, I am so happy to have 3 Ice cream shops in walking distance. This is my favorite, Old School Frozen Custard. Rich and delicious, you better try!

I'm working for some solo and group exhibitions in the US and Europe now. Also a new print release coming up soon. Check back shortly!

さて私は、無類のアイスクリームモンスター。ここ数年で近所に3件もアイスクリームの店ができましたが、一番好きなのはここ、Old School Frozen Custard。こってりおいしい!お試し下さいませ。
