Turning Japanese










Well, as ever it all started down the pub...

I forget the genesis of the idea but I came up with a tragicomic character called Zygote the Aborted Foetus, who we soon developed numerous scenarios to play around in. After picking up a few Mugg-style postcards featuring funky Japanese/urban/designer riffs of well known characters, I thought "I could do this". Last weekend I went to memorabilia for the first time in about a decade and stumbled across a similar stall selling funky designs on T-shirts and merchandise.

Again, I thought "I could do that"...and so I have. I still have a few more anime-styled designs I have jotted down but I'll post here all the cutesy Japanese style designs I've been working up since Thursday night...

Hey Nige, I think it started with me buying a comic called "Blob" and you said it could be anything, even an aborted foetus and I would still find it cute, then it spiralled from there. We should lay off the coffee and Koppaberg! lol. Pictures look good, I like fun guy the best I think, but they are all awesome! :o)

I was given free Koppabergs today so I can't see me laying off 'em anytime too soon :)

I like the Fun Guy pic, even though it's an obvious gag: my favourites are Sore Head, Party Animal, Hungover, Touching Cloth, the werewolf, the bear and squirrel and especially the cat and dog, as they are my sister's pets! :)
