Heather Brown at the Odaiba Hawaii Festival in Japan


It is an early Saturday morning here on the North Shore of Oahu and the sun is just starting to creep up over the mountains and show us if the surf will be fun or not today! The anticipation!! We have been blessed the past few weeks with late season fun swells here so it has been nice to be getting back in the water after some time in the mountains.

I have also been so busy preparing for my first of two Spring Tours in Japan coming up. The first one starts later on this week!

On my first Spring 2013 Japan Tour I will be having 3 shows:

Saturday April 27, 2013 at the Odaiba Hawaii Festival
Sunday April 28, 2013 at the Osaka Takashimaya
and Monday April 29, 2013 we will be celebrating the 4 year anniversary of the Heather Brown Gallery in Daikanyama, Tokyo!!

Last year I was asked to create the art for the Odaiba Hawaii Festival and I was totally honored as this is the largest Hawaii festival in the world showcasing Hawaiian music, hula, art, food and culture to hundreds of thousands of people over a week period.

This year, I was thrilled to be asked once again to create the art for the festival as well as have a pop up gallery there for the week! Here is a peek at the poster that I created for the 2013 Odaiba Hawaii Festival "Aloha, Together" the piece is also being released as a limited edition giclee titled "Waikiki Holiday" that will be available at my Japan tour then everywhere on April 27, 2013.

To make it even better, one of the main sponsors of the Odaiba Hawaii Festival is Hawaiian Airlines and they so generously gave Chris and I First Class tickets on Hawaiian Airlines to get to the big event!
Big Big Mahalo to Hawaiian Airlines for helping to put on such a great event as well as get us there in style!

Mahalo to Hawaiian Airlines for getting tickets for Heather Brown to the 2013 Odaiba Hawaii Festival!
It is always really fun to me as an artist to be able to create art for events like this or larger scale installations as it still is so odd to me to see my art used in these ways and makes me almost cry each time I see it still! I still can not believe it!!
