kokeshi view 1
kokeshi view 2

a couple views of the kokeshi doll i painted for the upcoming kokeshi show
at the japan american national museum in los angeles, this july.

i do have more pictures to share, though i'd sent it off already...
not sure how much i am supposed to share as the show's not opening for a couple months.

it was a ton of fun to paint on a 3D surface,
i can't wait to have some extra time to sculpt some figure as well.


  1. Your Kokeshi is really good (the shadows on the face!)....I am sure it will be a great and interesting show to cross culture throught this object in a museum.

  2. it seems like you mastered working in 3d surface. this is really cool.

  3. Hello, I met you by chance browsing the internet, and I love your work, is very good! I like the most are the expressions of the face, very beautiful!
