I have been asked various questions in regards to my project outcomes, so I thought I would compile the frequently asked questions:
What are the specified project outcomes?
To keep an updated blog with my progress, produce new work and have an exhibition upon my return to Adelaide.
What do you hope to achieve from your time in Japan?
I just hope to meet new people, improve my skills and focus on producing new works.
How many ‘new works’ will you create?
At minimum, I will produce 1 new sculpt completed and ready for production. Ideally, I would like to have a series ready for production.
Would the new work include Waniphant?
I would like to work on a new Waniphant sculpt but my main goal is to create new concepts while in Japan. I wouldn’t be too surprised if he does pop up though.
Will you participate in any Japanese events?
While in Japan, there will be two main toy events, ‘Super Festival’ and ‘Wonder Festival’. I currently don’t have any organised plans but I would like to have a display at these events.
When you come back to Australia, what will you do?
Beyond the exhibition, I currently don’t have any set plans; you'll have to wait and see.
What is the best part about being awarded the grant?
It solidifies what I do as ‘real’.
