Nishimura Ikuo (西村郁雄) Exhibition at Gallery Platform Studio (ギャラリープラットフォームスタジオ) - (2012/02))

This exhibition by illustrator Nishimura Ikuo (西村郁雄) at Gallery Platform Studio (ギャラリープラットフォームスタジオ) consisted of a series of "catoons" (cat + cartoon) depicting various scenes, many humorous.  この展示会は、DM絵葉書見たいな色々な面白い絵でした。
The Japanese title of the series of pictures was 吾輩はネコではない - ただ、ちょっと顔が似てるだけ, which could be translated as "I'm not a cat - I just look a little like one", or "I'm not a cat - I just have a face that looks line one", or "I'm not a cat, I just look that way".  The joke is based on the opening lines of the Natsume Soseki novel "I am a Cat" - 吾輩は猫である which are widely known.
