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