Christmas Hyper Japan 2014: Kitsune Art by Aisha Anime

kitsune exhibit at hj

Looking at different highlights at Hyper Japan my first and favourite aspect was Kitsune Art. They held there Sailor Moon exhibition of illustrations of Sailor Moon by 100 different artists from all over the world at Hyper Japan.

Situated upstairs amongst all the kawaii stalls and art and craft. We had the backdrop of the art behind two ladies doing a live demonstration. Between Lucia and Renee they hand painted some dunnies from Kidrobot to produce some Sailor Moon inspired figurines. In the end on Saturday afternoon they produced a Sailor Moon, Luna, Diana and Artemis.
