Necorepublic is a rescue cat cafe—utilizing the popular “cat cafe” to fund the rescue, and facilitate the acclimation and adoption of homeless and abandoned cats. Necorepublic is 100% no-kill shelter that helps connect cats with loving homes, and also cat-lovers who can’t own with a place to play and cuddle with furry friends. Necorepublic’s mission includes fighting to make Japan a no-kill country for cats by 2022. If you or anyone you know is interested in visiting a cat cafe, please recommend this cruelty-free option.
Erica Ward has been volunteering at Necorepublic Tokyo, Ochanomizu Branch for the last two years, and has happily accepted the chance to present a solo exhibition with the cat visiting rooms. Come meet the cats and enjoy portraits of the current residents and also recents “graduates.” 50% of art sales will be donated to Necorepublic and go towards continuing to save the cats.
We hope to see you there!

I am happy to announce the upcoming release of a new zine, hajime. hajime is a collection of seven non-Tokyo-native artists' visual interpretations of the theme "first impressions of Tokyo." The zine includes comics, illustrations, and poetry, in a diverse range of tones and styles.
I decided to do some comic-style work for the book, with a small sample image below. Lots of fine lines and details to represent the intricacies of Tokyo.
I'm also happy to have my illustration, "Train Lines in Bloom" as the cover of our first issue!
Release Party and Exhibition
All seven artists will be displaying original work from the zine at ninetytwo13 gallery in Roppongi run by Tokyo Chapter, open to the public 10am till 19pm Sunday 4/14~ Wednesday 4/18, as well as on Sunday 4/22. An opening party will be held at the gallery from 18:00~21:00 on 4/14. Come by to get a special discount on the zine, and see
