Domo arigato to all those who showed up! The weather + traffic were yucky but *wow* it was really great to see my Hello Kitty Junkies out and about! Jenna + HKGuy + Messy Pink + Belle + Amber! Thank you x2873746526!!! n___n

I have some photos to share since some of you guys could not make it:

Guess who painted this one!?!?! n_~

So happy I got to hang out with *Belle* — she has been super busy lately juggling 87463542 jobs and all!

One of Sean D’Anconia‘s pieces…

My *fave* part of this is Kitty-chan in her panda outfit… Especially because she is blushing AND winking! *Sigh*…

*Belle*’s man asking Sean some questions on how he creates his paintings.

More kawaiiness from Sean… (I borrowed the image below from Amber’s fb)…

Sean and Misha (photo borrowed from Sean’s fb)

Misha’s artwork…

Yes, this totally looks like Stephiee!!!

Lucky Bunny‘s pieces…

Shawna Trpcic‘s piece…

Shark Toof had some of the wood panels from the Small Gift Art Show on display as well.

Cute stuff, right!? n___n “9 Lives of the Kitty” will be on display at Hold Up Art in Little Tokyo until March 17, 2011. Stop by and check out the work with your own eyes! *much better in person* n_~

More photos on Amber’s fb album and Sean’s fb album (you may have to befriend them if you are not already tho).

Again, *thank you very much* to everyone who came out to the opening reception! xoxo

And you know me… I have been snooping around on Facebook to see if any of the artists have put up some previews of their pieces… I don’t want to ruin the surprise for any Junkie who is going… So here is a tiny glimpse of the kawaiiness! I wonder what Sean is up to in this one…

Below is a portion of mine…

Hope to see my LA Junkies this weekend! And I hope you will enjoy my painting — I made it from my heart! n___n

Hold Up Art Presents: “9 Lives of the Kitty” Pop-Art Show

This will be super kawaii and kittirific! I can actually tell just by looking at the flyer! I plan on attending the opening night. Any Junkies wanna join me!? n_~

Date: Saturday, February 19, 2011
Time: 5:00pm – 11:00pm
Location: Hold Up Art in Little Tokyo, 358 E. 2nd St., Los Angeles, CA
RSVP: If you are on FB, please share with your friends!

Held in Hold Up Art‘s Showcase wing, “The 9 Lives of Kitty” will feature three LA artists interpretations of the iconic Hello Kitty, and her many fascinating yet secretive lives. The show will feature Hold Up Art regular Sean D’Anconia, as well as introduce Misha and Lucky Bunny to the HUPA audience. The three artists’ approaches vary drastically and with a common ground in Kitty, the audience will be opened up to the understanding of how there styles originate and differentiate from each other.
