I don’t know an awful lot about Japan or Japanese culture, although I am a big fan of Yayoi Kusama. 87, and still going strong. Making art, everyday, for 70+ years.

And since tucking into helpings of ‘The Art of Japanese Life’, I’m beginning to appreciate the work of Katsushika Hokusai. There’s a way to go yet, though.
I have a distant cousin who is an animator. He spends a lot of time in Japan. Perhaps that’s what inspired him to make this short film about ‘Our Little Plastic Friend’?
