Sheltering From The Rain Show - Tokyo

Monday, 21 May 2012

I'm delighted to announce my solo show at Trico in Tokyo this June. 
It's rainy season in Japan, so we've called it Sheltering From The Rain.
The show will be a mixture of illustrations- some of you may have seen my #owladay, #foxaday and now #squirreladay on Twitter!
As well as new knitted trees, rain, new creatures and one-off pieces of wrapped Ercol furniture.
Here are the opening details:
