We are participating in “Balls Out!” a super group show at Grass Hut in Portland, Oregon! We did an Acrylic and gouache painting on 18″x18″ wood panel. Here is the sneak preview of the partial painting… 60+ amazing artists are participating this show. It opens on March 7th and will be up for the whole month. The work is available for online purchase after the opening reception. If you’re planning to be in Portland, be sure to stop by Grass Hut’s new spacious store (same building just the next door)! Their new site, which Aaron helped design is up and running now!

Happy New Year, everyone! We wish you healthy and peaceful 2008.
We’re very excited about our upcoming shows this year. We’ll have a small solo show at Outre Gallery in Australia in March. A big solo show at Giant Robot New York in May. A group show at GrassHut in Portland in August. A group show at Junc Gallery in LA in the Fall. A solo show at Schmancy in Seattle in Dec. And we’ll be in small group shows here and there throughout the year, so please check our blog when you can. Oh don’t forget to check out Ayumi’s new Gocco greeting cards coming up this Spring at our Etsy, too!
Today we’d like share some of the commission pieces we’ve done in the Fall and Winter 2007. We also like to thank our fabulous fans who gave us the opportunity to create those fun pieces!
This piece was created to match with “Sanctuary” piece which Caroline purchased from our show at GRSF in April 2007. The flute player represent herself as a musician. Thanks Caroline for lending both paintings for GR50th exhibit at Japanese-American Museum.
This piece was commissioned by Celena in LA and has a very personal touch of her Maltese, Suni who recently passed away. Hope this painting reminds Celena that Suni is in her favorite cupcake land every time she looks at the painting.
This painting was commissioned by Cheryl in Canada. We misread her request and created a painting with Future People instead of Happy Hermits… but she is kind enough that she decided to keep it. Thank you for being so supportive, Cheryl!

Bwana Spoons, Scrappers, Martin Ontiveros, Cupco, Le Merde, and APAK are all showing at DVA Gallery in Chicago. The opening party starts at 7-11pm on Dec. 1st. If you’re in Chicago, please stop by and cheer Bwana and Le Merde who are representing All Stars! If you can’t make it, here is the link to a virtual gallery… We did 3 pieces of gouache paintings on paper wrapped around a chunk of wood. They are done in a new style and we really enjoyed working on them. We’d love to hear what everyone thinks. Also some of Ayumi’s paintings are shown, too. Thanks for your support as always!
