afterthoughts ippo

Here is the afterthoughts
....written by ippo just released in his blog.

Thank You.

[Top left] 9th, 10th many people come to have a tailor-made stamp ordering. Some of them are usually send the cards and letters to me before, and this time I have a chance to meet them in person….even from the customers from Shenzhen, and Shanghai. First time I signed and illustrated a lot in my life time. Each customer they have their own favourite drawing, and characters, saying “I love Maruchan!” “I love ippo no ki!”. Thank you for making a funny-face with me.

[Top Right] 11th 12:00~18:00 hold 6 sessions of demonstration. The first session I was so nervous and my hand was shaking! Thank You for taking a warm and kindness support. After few sessions I am getting more calm down, however my own concentration may influence everyone. Everyone keeps silent without talking, they all watching me carving. When I take a deep breath, seems everyone follows. After finished carving, I received a lot of happy messages, and they clapped hands. I definitely will not forget about this feeling.

[Bottom] I started to show my stamps when the time being I was being invited by petit morpho Takehara-san three years ago. Year 2011, holding a first ippo-ten in Hong Kong. At that time I was not expecting we are coming to Hong Kong. So far, I follow my own pace to keep creating what I love. petit morpho is the place that providing me of what I created may treat as an artpiece. I have so much feeling and of saying Thanks to Takehara-san.

ippo & kon presenting what we naturally are, meeting each one of you in Hong Kong…feeling so much appreciated and happy of sharing the time with everyone. Thank You.

2012 nen 11 gatsu 15 nichi


he feels so embrassed of showing his eating scenes, so as promised we don't upload in this blog....however he shared with you all what he consumed during the stay in Hong Kong!

Please enjoy!!

Here are the gifts and letters received from the visitors...
they all placed in-care at ippo's home!!

what a wonderful memory for ippo & kon!!
Million Thanks to everyone of you "coming into his life"

...which is a great motivation to him to keep up his creation!


~ Thank You for coming into my life ~

after seeing ippo in person....
you would understand the theme of the exhibition.

"Thank You for coming into my life."
~deattekurete arigatou ~

for ippo, it is a strong meaning behind when seeing everyone of you in these three days activities in Hong Kong. 

Thank you for everyone leaving your footprints and cheerful messages on this foamboard we specially prepared! He carefully hand-carry back to Japan this morning ^^

November.11 (Sunday) - Demonstration by ippo

(the pencil sketch released before the demonstration starts, ippo carved each design in different time-sessions. When all the six designs connected together it becomes to a complete story)

November.11 (Sunday)/2012
Leather-Board Stamp Carving Demonstration

ippo gave us his FIRST live demonstration in his life to Hong Kong!!
Million Thanks to him...

he did the rubber board demonstration before, but he never do a leather-board.
You are too lucky enough!!!

You may understand why I appreciated and treated "Stamp-Carving" as an artpiece!
...after Tsubuan and ippo's arrivals to show their demonstration, you would understand deeply. Thats the reason why I keep supporting these potential artists by providing a different opportunities to show their talent.

100% concentration needed for ippo
everyone keep silent, and watched his carving!!

everyone loves his works...

you may feel his passion towards the creation, and you will just appreciate even more of his works after watching his demonstration!

It is to respect the artist....
as usual policy, we strongly prohibited to take any picture, and video during the demonstration.

(6) stamps freshly carved in different time-session from 12:00noon-6:00pm

Thank you for everyone a warm support and cheering him up during the demonstration.

seriously, he was feeling so touched after he completed all the demonstrations, and very much appreciated of everyone' kindness support!

we received a voice of whether these stamps available for sale?!

ippo and petit morpho are considering to have a charity purpose. 
Everyone are able to place a bid to adopt these collection.  
the details will be made officially after he returned to Japan.

these (6) actual stamps displayed during the exhibition till the end of November/2012

why ippo was so busy....


besides dropping down the order requested by the customers, he was being asked to sign and draw his characters on sketch books, and schedule books...

....even asked him for the back of the Original artworks, and postcards

.....oh no -__-" this time I couldn't believe that customers would like to own the foamboard I printed for the exhibition.

usually some customers (maily Producers, and Designers) requested me to hold for them after the exhibition ends...coz we dont keep any foamboard after the exhibition, so if anyone asked me to reserve, it is always welcome!!

...thats why if find any foamboards you would like us to reserve,
please don't hesitate to let us know^^


it is a good character list.
I thought there is no difference between each mokumokus..
I was wrong -_-" Let's study!!!

all customers will receive quite alot of freebies after ordering the stamps!!
amazing to see each drawing is unique and cute!!!
I really could not able to catch up each drawing.

If you have one, please send the drawing to me ^^

30+ designs is quite difficult for everyone to choose.
very headache!!

thats the reason why ippo was so busy besides dropping down an order!!

we received quite a lot of e-mail/phone ordering this time before and during the activity, unfortunately we do not accept any ordering in this way it is because the artist strongly requested to meet each customer in person and discuss the details and designs.
Thank You for your understanding!

I am studying this lately -_-"
....but don't you feel it is so interesting of each description?!

I have so many times came across to view the bamboo paintings...
it is not just a simple bamboo leaf, 好深奥arrr

I usually get some inspiration through readings....somehow the idea pops up in one day!

We noticed that we are not only assisting talents to hold exhibitions and activities in Hong Kong, and Japan Market, but also in the different we are going to slightly change into something new for the concept behind.

we will have few meetings in late November in Japan, to discuss about something globally-related event....and something excited "petit morpho 8th anniversary group exhibition" may considered by inviting 100 artists. Yes a hundred!!!!

....quite a few projects to proceed for 2014'

I personally hesitate to repeat a similar event, I love learning and challenging through managing different events, and activities.
