Christmas, the baby shower that went totally overboard.

Mums everywhere stress the final details for Chrissy lunch and shops become more daunting as we put off buying our work KK presents (what can you honestly buy with a limit of $20?). At times like these, it’s nice to take a moment, pour yourself a beer and look back on the year that was...

Meet Kentaro Yoshida. He hails from a fishing village in Toyama, Japan and moved to Sydney when he was 18. These days he lives in Manly where he surfs, makes art, drinks beer, and sometimes combines the latter and drinks art. No wait, sorry, he draws beer sometimes.

In the meantime, you can check out his work at his upcoming exhibition, RUMBLE, with Ben Brown at Goodspace on 31st May.

This is fairly typical behaviour of Glenno. The artist/musician/beer lover has been a part of the Young Henrys family since the very early days. Along with curating numerous exhibitions, he's behind many of the t-shirt designs immortalising some of our most treasured characters  - the gents and ladies of Old Fashioned Love, the Beer Wizard, the Hops Man (and of course Blackie). We chatted, fittingly over ‘The Black Cat’ black rice ale, about art and music, and life and death, about cats with necrotic tails and how drawing is like “accidental yoga”…
