Below, my recent October visit to the show, recorded a pod cast interview with Ken Fong and his podcast Asian America : http://asianamericapodcast.com/
My segment is not up yet but I’ll post a link here once it is !
Also, had some really nice fan interactions with many people at the show. I’m touched that people are really taking to the toys and the wonderful displays the museum came up with. But most of all that many are connecting to my story and of being Asian American.
Plus continued painting the massive Neo Eyezon … I think if I finish before the show is over, we will give it away .. but working on the details !
Here’s a special, hand painted with acrylics Real Type Sofubi-man by Mark Nagata. This one has sold and was sent to OneUp in Tokyo for their anniversary show.

And, I will be back at the Kaiju vs Heroes exhibit at the Japanese American National Museum on Saturday, October 20th, 2018 ! We’ll be releasing a new limited run of original Kaiju TriPus on glow vinyl. Plus I’ll be signing any books/ merch while I’m there. Probably be painting that huge Eyezon as well.
