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.
