dear elijah,

your mama is still horrified by the idea of putting her hand into a beheaded and skinned dead bird. so there will be no turkey dinner for you this year.

as a compromise, your mama asked santa to give her a super power to make ‘maximum team power duck headgear’ free hand. she had been thinking about how to make this headgear since you were still in her body. in her mind, ‘beheaded’ and ‘bird’ parts are all covered. so it’s basically the same thing.

i hope this headgear will keep your head warm all winter and you find it somewhat festive. it’s a festivus for the rest of us.

best wishes,

yuka-mama

thank you everyone for ordering at plastique monkey SHOP. i will be on holiday for a few weeks, starting next saturday (29th december). i’ve already pre-posted updates for the blog, so there will still be new things on this page during that time. but i’ll be in japan, so i won’t be able to ship anything from the shop until i get back, january 15th.

plastique monkey SHOP will still be accepting orders, but december 27th will be the last shipping day until the 15th of january.

when i come back, there will be some new items in my SHOP. i made a bunch of new prints, including some of the heart + a trunk body series. i made them for my show at cafe pause in tokyo coming up in january. they look great, so i’d like to add them to my SHOP for sale as well.

the title is ‘kamakura‘. ‘kamakura’ is a name of a city in kanagawa prefecture and also it’s a name for a snow hut (like igloo). kamakuras are built with compacted snow. they’re very warm inside.

it’s been snowing a lot here in saskatoon. the city is covered with pure white snow – very beautiful. it’s been super cold here. it’s like – 50 Celsius, to be exact. i’d like to stay inside and drink sake on a cold snowy night like that.

this is one of the three drawings that i submitted for a group show at thinkspace gallery. it’s for sale. please contact the gallery if you’re interested in it.

these are some photos of ‘tinyshop‘ show at double punch gallery in san francisco. the curator, antoi calls this wall “cute wall” and my postcards are on it — yay! she displayed so nicely. i wonder where my matchboxes are…?

i wish i could go see the show… those little creatures that the artists made are so good.

i like naoshi‘s work so much!  she will be showing her works at mogra gallery in shibuya, tokyo (12/27 – 1/12).  i’m going to tokyo for my show (1/7 – 1/11) at cafe pause.  so i’m totally going to go check her out.  it looks like i missed a ‘chindogu’ show at mogra gallery…  tears.

i submitted matchboxes as well as some postcards. they are for sale.
