Now its time again!
NärCon is the biggest Convention for Japanese popculture/games in the North. Their summerevent where I would have shown Aki Akanes work (but by some incidents didnt) had about 3500 visitors (which is really alot in Sweden)!
This is the first time they have NärCon Winter edition (an all indoor-convent) but people love it and 1000 tickets are sold!
22nd-24th of February, hope to see you there!!
So, I’m booked to have a 30min lecture about the phenominon Aki Akane!
Do you know her?
She is a 21 year old girl that has become a superstar in Tokyo through their version of Youtube, Niconico, and from her illustrations you can see at pixiv and at her musicvideos.
This Sunday, 9th, I will be at AsianFestival in Stockholm and the place is ÖstAsiatiska Museet at 14.30.
I hope you can come and the cost is 60SEK.
There will be alot to listen to and see and try this day and I will sell CD’s from Aki Akane as well(^^)
My beloved Japanese lovers, I know you know about Kyary Pamyu Pamyu.
A fashion blogger in Japan that makes a crazy, funny face on pictures which she now is famous for.
She is also a model and works alot together with Sebastian Masuda, the founder of My favourite store 6%DOKIDOKI in Harajuku.
They make Kyary look like a crazy, fairykei doll from the world of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
HARAJUKU KAWAii is a popular Japanese fashion and music which features fashion shows from kawaii Harajuku-friendly fashion brands (including 6%DOKIDOKI), concerts by kawaii singers (including Kyary), special celebrity appearances, popup shops, and lots of fun.
I so wish that they would come to Sweden and I would help them fix à great gig here, but for now you can see this show in July 8 in Paris at Japan Expo!
