Growing up, my dad had a rule. “You can’t get a tattoo. If you do, I will make you get it removed. Unless, that is, you join the army and can shoot a seagull in the eye from a mile away, or you have a near-death experience.”
On July 12, 2011, I rode my bicycle to the camp I worked at. On my way home, I rode down a hill, and stopped at the bottom. I looked both ways, and there was no car coming. I started to turn left when I got hit by a car going ~55 miles per hour. I completely shattered the windshield, and when the driver stopped, I was ejected back onto the road. The doctors in the emergency room were absolutely perplexed when I arrived, because they all agreed that I should have died, and they were amazed to release me 4 and a half hours later with only 16 stitches, a concussion, and a chipped tooth. During my recovery, I was angry and confused. A couple if days after my accident, I received cards from my eight year old campers. One of them drew a giant paper crane, and said, “if you fold a thousand paper cranes, you’ll get better”. 
Not being able to read, ride a bicycle, or put stress on my body, I cut up an old sudoku puzzle, went on YouTube, and learned how to make a paper crane. By the end of the day, I had a laundry basket full of black and white paper cranes. I kept making paper cranes, even after I made a thousand, and I ran into a dilemma. What do you do with paper cranes once you’ve made them? A girl in my class had committed suicide the same day I had my accident, and I brought a purple crane to her wake. Her family could not have been happier the moment I presented them with this crane. Something clicked in my head right there. I started giving them to people and hiding them in random places for people to find. I started making art with them, and they became a major part of who I was. 
This tattoo is symbolic of my accident, and could not represent me any better.

個展終わりました。

中庭にも絵を展示してたのですが、ほど良い写真がなかったので割愛しました。

関西でこういう展示をするのは初めてだったことと、1人展だったのでお客さんは来るのか?と超弱気でしたが、予想外にたくさんの方や遠方の方にも来て頂けて、絵も数枚旅立っていき、嬉しい事ばかりでした。

本当にありがとうございました。

(機会を下さったubefulさんにも感謝しています。レンタルギャラリーもされてますので京都で何かしようと思ってる方はぜひぜひ cumono gallery

次はまた夏くらいにズンチャ(まかさんとのサークル名、過去2回デザフェスに一緒にでました。)でなんかしますのでよろしくお願いします。

その後は(というか今も)ちょっと大学卒業にむけていろいろ頑張らないといけないと思ってますので……お見逃し無く!
