3D Street Painting in Japan – The Next Generation

toba japan workshop 2

After my visit to Hong Kong, I decided to make a trip over to beautiful Japan to check out Kyoto and visit some good friends down in Toba, where I had done some 3d street painting back in 2004 as part of a Santa Barbara Sister City project. My dear friend Mitsuko Yamamoto had extended an invitation to visit with her family along with providing a 3D workshop for the students enrolled in the Kokusai Kids Club in Toba.

I Madonnari Festival 2009 – Santa Barbara, California

El Flechador del SolAnother year has come and gone and I find myself with a little case of post festival blues after completing my 12th year at the Santa Barbara I Madonnari Street Painting Festival. The festival celebrated 23 years this past weekend and the public support could not have been better. In the wake of the terrible fires that have decimated much of the local community, Santa Barbara came out in force to support this unique event.
