I've been dying to share this with you for ages.
A couple of months ago I went hunting for a Yusaku Hanakuma t-shirt on the internet. I couldn't find one anywhere. Well that's not strictly true... they sell them in Japan. But I still haven't managed to find anyone selling them in Europe. Post a comment if you know better!
In my extensive searches I just happened across the "Arts Factory" website. Arts Factory is a French shop selling a limited edition print run of a picture by Yusaku Hanakuma called Zombie Highway.
I bought one!
I wanted to get it framed before I shared a picture.
Here it is...
|Yusaku Hanakuma - Zombie Highway|
The picture is 60 by 40cm and 500 copies were printed. I've got #180.
Unfortunately, I don't have anywhere to hang it.
So what's the verdict been in the King Uke household?
My boy says he hates it... but he can be like that. For a bit of fun I pointed at Afro and asked him if he knew who he was.
Boy Uke: "Is it that man who invented the Moon Walk?"Of course, you and I both know that Michael Jackson didn't invent the Moon Walk.
King Uke: "Michael Jackson?"
Boy Uke: "Yes, Michael Jackson"
King Uke: "No."
I asked the Mrs what she thought...
Moma Uke: "People will think we've framed one of the kids' pictures."So it appears I stand alone.
I think it's great!
