Year of the Rabbit - usagiguy
Year of the Rabbit

Year of the Rabbit: Stan Sakai's Usagi Yojimbo, my exhibition at the Japanese American National Museum in LA, opens this Saturday and runs through October 30. Target is sponsoring the opening, so there will be no charge for admission that day. I will be giving a presentation in the afternoon.

I have been in a lot of exhibits, but this one will be the most comprehensive. It will not only display a lot of art in all phases of production, but also merchandising such as UY toys, pajamas, and statues. There will even be a section of Usagi art by other creators such as Frank Miller and even Stan Lee. A mini-documentary will be shown in the theater, with interviews with friends such as Sergio Aragones, Scott Shaw, Stan Lee, Geoff Darrow, and others.

Here is a link to the details:

If you're driving down to Comic-con, you can make a stop in LA on your way home.

I hope the mini-documentary will be made available on DVD or some digital download platform(s).

Great photo!
Wish I could get out there to see the exhibit, but I will have to be content to see it through other visitor's photos.

I've been meaning to visit that museum, and you give me an excellent excuse. See you Saturday!

For perhaps the first time in my life, I'm wishing I lived on the west coast.

Argh! I can't believe i missed it! I was looking for something to do Saturday morning too. Oh well, I will definitely check it out after SDCC. Stan, has Neal Yamamoto ever asked you to participate in his comic book class (SMC)? I think it would be great!
