In 1987, Wool started works with stenciled phrases and words.
Wool was inspired when he saw a graffiti covered white truck on the street of New York City.

In a joint competition hosted by the Department of Transportation and Cooper-Hewitt and a little help from Google.
Ten finalists for the new design were unveiled today.
They range from the bland-but-functional to something you’d see in MOMA.

New York→Chicago→Burlington

When to Burlington, VT for art show call "the art hop".
"The Art Hop is a singular expression of who we are as a community and a thousand statements about what we value about living and working in Vermont."

□two weeks

Hong Kong→Narita→New York→Chicago→Burlington→New York→Chicago→Spokane→Idaho→Seattle→New York.

I was in Hong Kong for a while, few new projects need to be cover and take care.
I'm actually back in New York now but have to fly out to Chicago early tomorrow morning.
This time I don't have to by in and out of country, and only with in NA, I'm hoping for relax and smooth travel.

My Japanese friend "Mask" taught me Japanese word TABI.
It means to travel (or just travel), so here we go, my TABI will start shortly.

Some beautiful pics from New York.

Guggenheim Musiam
One of the most beautiful arcticuture in the world.

Parsons School of Design
My home ground, where I learned being designer is being tough, mentally and fisically.
I was little sad that front entrance was cleaned up and rebuild to be mordern.
I prefer the old entrance, dirty but filled with worm atmosphere.

Cafe Dante

■from valere

Don't have much to report since my schedule was meeting, meeting, meeting and another meeting...
It was good that I was able to catch up with my friends in Hong Kong.

Trying to start up new projects.
It is really good to hang out with people who can be your best friend when we drink but become worst night mare when we do work.
These days it is hard to meet people who can say "NO, it suck" to your face and challenge your idea.

hong kong01.jpg

Something that I don't get it in Hong Kong shops, that they don't allow to take pic of store even outside.
Those stuffs come running over to stop people taking pics, I just don't get you guys.
You stuffs should be proud of the store.

I need to make one more stop before I go back to NY.
