Dreams to Dreams: DCTO Custom Show 2008.
Dacosta Bayley a.k.a CHOCOLATE SOOP and the Japanese American National Museum have assembled the first custom toy show held in a museum. 45+ artists have customized his DCTO (Dreams Come True Object) Jibun Project, a futuristic version of the traditional Daruma toy. The theme of the show is "Dreams to Dreams" and is based on the poem of the same title which speaks to childhood dreams, possibilities and looking to the future.
Opening reception will be held on Saturday, December 6th, 2008
The finished art pieces will be on display at the Japanese American National Museum from December 1, 2008 through January 4, 2009. Pieces will be available for sale through the Museum Store.
The show will lead up to Oshogatsu weekend (a significant celebration in Los Angeles’s Little Tokyo area). there will be educational and entertaining programs that tell the significance of Daruma and other cultural icons for the New Year.
Sponsored in part by: Daruma Asset Management, Inc.

Back again with a long over due post...
It's been a minute since my last project update. I think their will be a couple of posts the weekend to catch you up.
"Don't eat yellow snow" they say...
The truth about those mysterious little yellow stains in the snowbanks has finally been uncovered. Very soon you’ll be able to get your hands on the top secret report hidden from the general public by a shadow organization that would like nothing more than to keep us in the dark on such matters. Well NO MORE I say!!! The truth is out there… and it’s yellow…
Back soon true believers
