I just recently discovered him because Japanese department store Daimaru invited him to design their show window for the holiday season! The display is going on through 12/25/07. (Photos courtesy of Rob Ryan)

If you happen to be in Japan, you can also receive these shopping bags when you make a purchase at the department store.
