HANNA TŌ JUKKA

One afternoon during the rainy season, I had the pleasure of meeting the lovely Hanna and Jukka from Finland.
I had known Hanna from this exhibition I went to 2 years ago at biotope (it was in Gakugeidaigaku then but now moved) which Hanna had with another amazing illustrator Hana Akiyama called "Hana to Hanna". Though I didn't get to meet Hanna then, I had been a fan of her works since so I was very happy to meet up with her and Jukka whom we'd known each other on instagram! We had a nice lunch at my favourite cafe ikanika.

Hanna brought me a treat from Finland, the cute packaged lollies AND one of her gorgeous prints AND a set of beautiful post cards!! How lucky am I??? If you are in Japan you can now buy her post cards from Gallerie Doux Dimanche in Aoyama or in Jiyugaoka or from their online shop here so please check it out!
I had also bought this sweet tea towel of Hanna's from NAPA books, which I LOVE!

Kiitos Hanna and Jukka :-)


P.S. You may have noticed but I have a "new face" for my blog now (as well as for my shop blog) :) Also I now have a facebook page where I share what I hope to be useful information on Tokyo, about shops, cafes and exhibitions etc., so please join me here also! Arigato :)
