Japan Part I: Day 1-4 Tokyo

Thursday, April 2, 2009

Total bliss. T__T

Yeah okay, I haven't died~ It's just that I haven't been having the most accessible internet possible.

It's been a great trip so far, and I feel... happy.

Just a super quiiickkkk recap. I'll definitely be doing individual entries for those that need expansion. XD

Day 1 started somewhere around 5pm after we'd unpacked in Tokyo. Had super awesome yakitori and super mega awesome sushi for dinner. 2 different places with 2 different groups of people. I felt very very welcomed and loved.

Day 2 went to Asakusa in the morning, it was drizzling.

Met up with Ken from GPKISM, had sushi and started reminiscing about how we first started speaking when we were both in Melbourne in 2005.

Then I raided Closet Child (and bought too much of Alice Auaa) ;_;

And also got myself a Vivienne Westwood lighter, just because it's so damn pretty.

Too bad I don't have a reason to carry it around...

Spotted EGL twins in the evening~

Day 3: Photohoot #1 + Wacom Intuos4 Launch Party

No preview photos from the shoot yet, Chiaki was the model again. She worked with Sugizo as a photographer. *intensely jealous*

Oh well. ;_;

Attended the Wacom Intuos4 launch party at night. It was pretty awesome~

I want this tablet, like right now~! Hahaha. Control panel on the board's all on one side now. And no, fret not if you're left handed, just flip the board around and you will have it the right way for you. Yay.

There were a dozen or so stations around the club for people to test out the new tablet.

During the party there was a live performance by a VJ. She painted according to the beats of the music, and on people if they went in front of the projectors, pretty cool~

And throughout the evening there were Wacom Artist features and interviews played on displays around the premises, consisting of a whole range of people from illustrators to designers to retouchers to concept artists. Discovered some really spectecular stuff there.

Can't wait to get mine (a 9x12!)~

Day 4: Photoshoot #2

And this is, the most beautiful man I'd ever photographed.
