  • ‘Disney Cats & Dogs Exhibition’ at Matsuya Ginza Reveals the Secrets of Disney’s Animal Productions

    29.September.2021 | ANIME&GAME / SPOT

    While ‘animals’ are one of Disney’s forever-themes, ‘dogs and cats’ are special amongst them for being like family to us humans. The upcoming ‘Disney Cats & Dogs Exhibition,’ held at Event Square on the 8th floor of Matsuya Ginza between December 1 and December 25, explores the charms of Disney’s beloved pets.

     

    Mickey & Friends Pluto

     

    Lady and the Tramp

     

    101 Dalmatians

     

    Aristocats

     

     

     

    The movie ‘Bambi’ was an opportunity for Disney to challenge the tough task of “animals expressing themselves, while maintaining a realistic drawing style.” The crew invited animals into the studio, studying their anatomy and muscles to ensure a sense of realism. The characters were successfully drawn in an expressive way which captivated audiences, leading Disney to produce a large number of animal animations throughout its history. The exhibition will introduce visitors to the evolution   and innovation of Disney’s animal animation, along with the trial and error that it took to successfully draw animals expressing their feelings. The event is full of iconic Disney animals such as Pluto, the 101 Dalmations, Lady and the Tramp, and The Aristocats – It’s almost as if you’ve fallen straight into a Disney movie! 

     

     

    The exhibition will showcase a wide collection of over 300 digital and archived works, provided by the Animation Research Library, which hosts, digitizes, and archives everything related to Disney animation. Pieces that could be damaged if removed from storage, such as original watercolor paintings and pastel illustrations, are digitized and exhibited for the world to enjoy in a scale much larger than the original, allowing guests to see the details in each piece of art. This unique digital aspect is one of the highlights of the exhibition.

     

     

     

    You won’t want to miss out on this exhibition which features some of the most impressive dogs and cats in all of Disney works; You can laugh at Mickey’s friend Pluto as he features in some of Disney’s earliest gag animations, marvel at the romance of Lady and the Tramp, be thrilled by the dramatic escape from Cruella’s magical hands in 101 Dalmations, and even take in both the beauty of Paris and the cuteness of kitten Marie from the Aristocats.

     

    Walt Disney himself was known for being a huge dog lover, spending his childhood with his family and their dog. This ‘Cats and Dogs’ themed exhibition will showcase characters with expressions and gestures that reflect Disney’s affection and familiarity with the animals. 

     

     

    Why not go walkies around the ‘Disney Cats & Dogs’ exhibition?

  • Eyewear brand JINS Teams Up with Swedish Artist Eleonor Boström for New Collaboration

    19.August.2021 | FASHION

    Top Japanese eyewear brand JINS is collaborating with Swedish ceramicist and illustrator Eleonor Boström on a new line of unique glasses. The new collection will be available at JINS stores nationwide and online starting August 19.

    Product Lineup

    Patterned Cleaning Cloth

    Campaign Prize: Ceramic flower made by Eleonor

     

    The world has fallen in love with Swedish artist Eleonor Boström, and wonders what she’ll make next–for the past ten years, she has created works inspired by dogs, claiming that she hasn’t grown tired of it yet. Her work is characterized by utilizing dogs to express thoughts on society, reality, fantasy, and flowers. While her style seems humorous and lighthearted, her message is more serious: people get caught up in the minutiae of daily life, and we should all take time to stop and smell the roses. This collaboration, based on the concept of living every moment to the fullest, is a symbol of self-acceptance and relaxation.

     

    This collaboration has been made possible by TONKACHI, a popular art initiative hosting a number of creators. JINS x Eleonor Boström is the second collaborative eyewear series the initiative has created, the first being JINS x Polly Fern.

     

    Edgar, the pet dog of the British character Sybil who appeared in the Polly Fern collection, features heavily in this collaboration. With 8 models and 24 varieties of slim metal frames, there’s something for everyone! Each pair is playful yet subtle, and are paired with a soft case and cleaning cloth which are limited to this collection. The case itself features a simple embossed design featuring Edgar, while the cloth is printed with a four-frame comic drawn by Eleonor exclusively for this release.

     

    The third project with TONKACHI is planned to be a collaboration with Marianne Hallberg, a ceramic artist from Gothenburg, Sweden.
