Donguri Korokoro Pom Pom

I made a school of breads from my insane passion to chestnuts. Every year of this time, I dream about the warm and tasty roasted chestnut food, cakes and desserts. These little dudes don't taste like chestnut, tho. They are just...well, a 3D form of some little fellows I doodled last year. (I'm saving the real chestnuts to make a cake)

Go picnic!

Vicious Delicious

viciousdelicious.jpg

This show is generated by Save By Art. I was introduced to this organization by artists Lola and Reece, (also curators and organizers of all the Save By Art events) This coming silent art auction is in benefit of The Canadian Diabetes Association. Titled - Vicious/Delicious. It will be held tonight in Edmonton, Canada at The Syndicate.

I made this little drawing on wood for the show (which I really enjoyed making it, and I plan to make some more this related drawings - of food of furs and tails and sweetness)

Meowwwich

Meowich
6"x8"
Graphite and Cel-Vinyl Acrylic on Wood
(sold)

They also asked all the artists to do a little interesting questionnaire:
1. What is the story or inspiration behind your submitted piece(s)?

2. Having diabetes can be described as a battle of the have and have- nots. What is your biggest vicious delicious temptation?


My answers: I named my piece: Meowwwich (Meow-wich or Meowich)
Meowwwich is something we will never get at a fast food place. If it ever shows up on you table, this whole-cat-sandwich would be the meat lover's first choice! (with more juicy meat) But a meowwwich will also get you trouble. Beware of a hungry cat, it will probably scratch you and eat you back! I like animals and pets, I came out with this idea while I was on my cat-sitting mission. I was with a cat 24-7, she is all I could think of, a lovely, playful, as well as delicious & sweet creature.

It's funny the second question made me think about that I had been drinking JUST ONLY milkshake for a month (last december).
