The World of Yoko Sueyoshi


When I stopped by a store called Loft a couple months ago, there was an art event going on called Pop Box. It's an annual event where each artist has a small box (=booth) to display his/her artworks inside the store. I was especially captivated by one of the boxes...

The artist's name is Yoko Sueyoshi. I am in love with the world she creates and am enchanted by the boys and girls that appear inside her artwork. The children in these pictures aren't just innocent; I feel like there's a lot hidden inside their expressions. Wouldn't you love to slip into this world? The scenery is breathtaking.

I had the chance to see her at a live painting and it was incredible to see her works come to life. She was a lovely person, just like her artwork.

For more of her artwork, here's the website (go look at more lovely drawings!) and she has an exhibit, POP SPACE (which I think is similar to Pop Box) going on right now. Details are below, those who are in Tokyo should definitely go have a look!

During the time away from blogging, shopping, reading magazines, etc. the resort and couture collections have ended and stores are already stocking pre-fall clothes. How time flies...I haven't even found the perfect summer dress yet!
It's finally summer and I'm definitely hoping more blogging and more effortless days. Hope everyone is having a wonderful Friday!
