“Syunga”, literally translated is “the paintings of spring”. Syunga is one kind of UKIYOE, originated from the 17th century , which depicts the love life of the Japanese male and female as inspiration for many artists throughout history and around the world. Influenced by this celebration of life and love Mari Inukai has created a body of work displaying her talents in oil, watercolor, drawings, mixed media and even ceramic toys. Sexy and cute, her work combines contemporary figure painting with flat animated creatures and elements. In our upstairs gallery space, we will be featuring the work of “Tonomime” an alias for the collaboration of Mari and Kent Williams as one creative force. In her own words, she attempts to “break the wall between imagination and sleep - as if to ask do you really know when you are you awake or asleep?”

Felipe Smith
Tokypop’s Rising Stars of Manga competition winner will be signing his award winning and Publisher’s Weekly Star review novel MBQ.” My main objective is to bring a sense of reality to the reader through the characters’ speech and actions. Some of my Characters may be offensive individuals, but then again I’ve met a few myself, and I’m sure the reader has as well. The human experience is what I want to share with the reader through MBQ; the good, the bad, and everything in between.”www.felipesmith.com/mbq/

Amy Kim Ganter
Kim Yale Award nominee and a YALSA Great Graphic Novel For Teens nominee Amy Ganter introduces Sorcerers and Secretaries; is a romantic comedy for all ages. NicoleHayes works as a receptionist who carries her notebook of daydreams everywhere she goes. Josh Kim works at a chain bookstore and flirts with all of the ladies but yet, deep down inside there is a yearning for love. “Both of these poor folks are walking along the wrong path, but when they meet they slowly tug each other back on track. This book is about the tugging.”www.felaxx.com/

Becky Cloonan
Eisner – Award nominated artist for Demo and Kim Yale Award nominee artist speaks about her anticipated graphic novel series, East Coast Rising. “A sweeping action-adventure set in an era where the earth has been flooded and monsters lurk under every wave. It's high adventure on the very high seas with Cannonball Joe and his crew as they look for a relic that will change fate of the world! From Manhattan's lower east side to the depths of the Atlantic ocean they brave impossible odds to find the ultimate sunken treasure.” www.estrigious.com/becky/
