My friend, @Junko_Mizuno, is in town and having a solo show at Gallery Nucleus tonight in Alhambra, CA. If you’re not familiar with Junko’s work, she’s a Japanese manga artist and amongst the finest illustration-based creators working today. Cute, dark, humorous work with an exceptional color palette. Admission is $5 but I’m told there will be free candy, raffles and other fun stuff. Totally worth checking out as she’s truly an original and the real deal.
