VW Bus Cafe

Original work in ink and watercolor on watercolor paper (with a digital touch of 60s purple), this image is a personification of the Roppongi cafe and eatery "Cafe Frangipani." I'm very excited to be having an exhibition of my art at the cafe this month (Exhibition info below--check it out!) and wanted to make a fresh, summery image specific to the hosting venue. The cafe has a green VW Bus parked inside (patrons can even enjoy their order at a table inside the bus!) which inspired me to mix some VW Love into the hair and frangipani flowers in this piece.

"Konomachi-ten" Erica Ward Exhibition in Roppongi
I've had a handful of wonderful opportunities to show my work in Tohoku, Kansai, and Shikoku, but this is my first-ever exhibition in Tokyo!

"Konomachi-ten: This Town" Erica Ward Exhibition in Roppongi
When: 8/21/2016 - 9/10/2016
Where: Cafe Frangipani (a block away from Roppongi Hills)
Address: 6-8-21 Roppongi, Minato-ku, Tokyo

My illustrations will be on display in the cafe's gallery area where you can enjoy a coffee, lunch, dinner or a drink while viewing the pieces.

I will be showing thirteen works--including three new pieces that have never been exhibited or shared online. Stop by the cafe and acquainted.
Hope to see you there!
