past couple of weeks

we must've been so stressed out about our open studio
being possibly rained out, we went into a hibernation mode
after. ok that's not really true. we've been up to
a few things, including:

ken and alex working the table

our lovely customers

our friends kris&alan's wedding at ace hotel
in palm springs. it was our first time staying there and
the rumors are true, it's great.

morgan lounging in our room's patio
... and the bed

hello welcome to my establishment

cooper looking casually hip


and then we had a little studio visit at our printshop
with the young people of AIGA USC.
thanks so much for coming out in the rain!!

this has been a super lazy update by shino.

Open Studio!

Fugu Fugu Press Open Studio 2011!

Dear Rain,

Thank you for not spoiling our Open Studio event. Thank you for stopping promptly at 11:00am and starting back up again right at 4:45pm, just as we were wrapping things up for the day. We know. We owe you a big one.

ken and shino.


Whew... we had a close one this year! Whenever one plans something outside in November, one takes a risk with rain. We so lucked out this time around! Thanks SO MUCH to all our vendors for showing up even though the forecast called for one rainy, gloomy, yucky day. The faith paid off! We ended up with a nice day with mostly just fluffy clouds and enough sun to warm everybody up and lift our spirits...

As in the past, we were glad to have our crafty compadres there showing off their amazing stuff. RibitStopit showed off their fancy wares for the kids...

Alissa with jewelry and wishing rocks...


Kimiko's designs...

And there were lots of snacks, and printing demos, and folks wanderin' about..

And lots of little ones...

And, of course, doggies...

We were really glad to have great music. Our friends Pam and Robert were visiting and treated us to some delightful Brazilian choros and gypsy swing to get things started.

Richard, Clarence, Geoff and Mark picked it up from them and kept us swingin' throughout the afternoon.

Our friend Scott Steen had his trumpet handy and sat in on a coupla' tunes..

And of course, I had to sit in on a couple of tunes too...

And while we wandered about, we were really glad to have our friend Carlie ringing people up and holding down the fort for us..

Thanks to everybody for showed up and helped us have such a great day!
