Some Taiwan Pics

 Ash, Eddy and Me

This is a pic of the much vaunted Batman Burger. I think it's worth pointing out that this was purchased as a novelty and nobody actually ate it. There was some concern that it might send an unwanted Bat signal to someone's pants.

October Update

Bet ya didn't know that Narcissus was actually a cat? Huh? Huh? Welcome to the October update, perhaps I should explain the pic. Ash and I are trying to clean and pretty things up a bit around the studio and this lovely thing appeared. TV garden people would call it a water feature, fancy person calls it a reflective pool and Ash calls it a bird bath. I personally think it looks like some kind of ancient screeing pool, which is kind of cool, currently it's predicting a cat 5 plus Typhoon... note the clouds.

This weekend Three A is showing at the Beast Kingdom show in Taipei, Taiwan. Getting there wasn't so pleasant this time though as there was lots of turbulance due to the presence of clouds spiraling off the Typhoon due to hit Japan any time soon. To all of our friends in Japan, stay safe.

A big shout out and a thankyou to Madames Chen and Chen and to all the people who came to last weekend's expo in Guangzhou, China. 

Last week, as some as you may know, was Golden Week and a lot of people in Hong Kong take holidays at that time of year. Ash and I tried to take a couple of days off but we failed miserably. We don't do holidays well, we get easily bored. In my case I've done something stupid to my shoulder and so I ended up in one of those scary MRI machines and told to take it easy. Sitting on my bum doing nothing is super hard and so I bought a book by a popular author and settled in for a good read, (loaded up on anti inflamatories). About a quarter of the way through the author used her main character to say some really meanspirited things about the work of another author. I got mad and lobbed the book across the room, rescrewing my shoulder, yay! 

From now on I'm sticking to my Kindle, I would never lob an ipad (too expensive).

In other news: Get well soon Morrissey, you irascible bastard! You were a fixture of our teenage years and the world is not ready to lose you just yet.

Till next time,

September Update

Wow, where has 2014 gone?

Welcome to the September update! Apologies for missing August but boy were we busy!

We have two ThreeA public events coming up, one in Guangzhou, China and the other is the Taipei Toy Fair in Taiwan. I'll only be blogging Taipei though, Guangzhou will no doubt be covered in full on the Facebook page.

We have two major art events coming up also in 2015, the NYC exhibition at the Jonathan Le Vine gallery (street level - Chelsea NY) and mid way through next year we're going to be hosting a huge exhibition in Tokyo, Japan (more details to come as they become available).

Movie news, again I am muted due to agreements, but sufficeth to say we have dates for at least one project slated, (which is only good news, set to get better).

Ash and I, as always, have been working away and we've noticed a lot of people have been keeping up with the new art only Instagram account, which is awesome. If you haven't joined up already, please consider it as this is probably the best place to see preview images of some of the paintings that will be put up for exhibit in 2015.

I had a chuckle regarding 7174 the other day, I hadn't read the wiki until now and someone has referred to us as an arts "umbrella" organisation. We've been watching through all the Bond movies with our boys and the term made me think of the Spectre organisation. Ash doesn't own a signet ring but we certainly have the cat.

Bond: "Do you expect me to talk?"

Goldfinger: "No Mr. Bond, I expect you to die!"

Until next time - stay healthy!

James Jean X Ashley Wood

Here is a pic of a mural created this evening in the Tokyo offices of Good Smile, a collaboration between Ash and James Jean.
