Dragon Year

2012 is the year of the Dragon in Chinese Calendar.
Special thanks to you, Ian!(my friend who visited my restaurant last year)

To start My blog in 2012..I chose this beggie carving.

Speaking of Chinese Calendar..
A mouse,cow, tiger....the twelve signs of the chinese character are animals each, but only the Dragon is an animal in the imagination.

Although the tough times, we can make full use of imagination then rise like a Dragon!

Cucumber Art 2

Today,I introduce my veggie carving which I made for broadcasted TV program last month.

I made 9 Buddha for the TV program.
but I did not made them from a wood.. from a cucumber.. for sure!
The TV crew added splendid work to my sculpture.

Buddhist saint...

His name is called "asura"
I made every one of them from 1 cucumber except him.
I put arms with bamboo stick for this asura.

The Buddha....They are the helo from long time ago..

The TV crew used the dry-Ice.
They got the inspirarion from my picture of the
Darth vader which I made before.

They did great work on it..
looks so beautiful arn't they?

Which one is your favorite? :)

They introduced our course menu too!

This is also my favorite carving.
white(Japanese White raddish) and red(carrot) pair swan.
I've been making the pair swan from long time ago because
A swan is a blissful animal.
also Red and the white combination are good for a celebration!

At last, I made a japanese comedian "masa" with sweet potato.
In TV,He called it as "me"!

by the way...Please allow for me to put subtitles on a
pictures recently.
I do not want anyone to do business with my pictures.
I just make them for people's fun!
Hope you enjoy the vegetables!

A Day of Last week, I bought this book.
I only read a half of this.....

I used to watch his presentation in Podcast(Keynote).
We were attracted by his speech.

This book's subtitle said.."What would Jobs do?"

"What would you do to this situation if you are Jobs?"

Thank you Steve.
Thank you for all of your great words.
Please take a rest the people from Heaven.

It was the very peaceful day.
Until that ferocious monster appears ・・

The beautiful Butterfly were playing..

A rabbit and the butterfly play hide-and-seek at a flower bed..
It was the quiet autumn afternoon.

Here is another rabbit also playing with butterfly..

Suddenly, That Dangerous monster appeared !

The rabbit finally noticed a monster,but was already too late...!

An animal and the monster of the forest are lived peacefully...forever.
