theladyfromhell asked: where do you get you're kewpie dolls at?

Most of my kewpies were adopted from ebay, etsy, black ink (harvard square), kinokuniya (nyc), and thrift stores.

The rest were abandoned on my doorstep.

spitswap asked: Hey, I was wondering where abouts do you usually find the bigger Kewpie dolls? I love them especially the Disney mash ups but have only managed to find recent ones in tiny phone charm like sizes.

I found most of my larger Kewpie dolls on eBay :)

I need to post a proper recap of Boston Comic Con on my blog, but for now, here are some tiny treasures that I picked up from the show this past weekend:

I’ll post the rest of my photos and swag throughout the week (and I’ll eventually resume my sdcc 2013 pic spam (maybe?!?)).

Batman 1966 x Kewpie mashup, by Jonathan Reincke
[prints available on Etsy]

I’ve been a fan of Jonathan’s work ever since I met him at Boston Comic Con 2011, but I’m completely floored by this mashup of two of my most favorite things in the world~

I can’t wait to hang these up in my room

a new zine is coming this summer, dudes

it was originally titled “kill yourself” but 2012, the year that i planned to release it, was a fucking bummer and i’m glad i couldn’t do it, because it would not have been a true reflection of my body of work and instead would have been just a reaction to how terribly i felt. that’s how i feel about everything i churned out last year, at least. although i am a pessimist/rain cloud/morose, i am genuinely happy that i am alive and that all of y’all are alive because even if you feel like you are uselessly shouting things out into the universe, someone hears what you are saying and they have taken note. we’re all just a bunch of junk making up a bigger bunch of junk and that’s pretty cool.

I can’t wait to get a copy of Jessica’s new zine ♡

This is one of my favorite Kewpie illustrations…probably because it is also a self portrait, but it also shows Rose’s relationship with her tiny, happy characters. They became her career in the eyes of the millions of people who owned a Kewpie doll and have long overshadowed her fine art and other works as a cartoonist. Of course, this did not mean Rose did’t love the Kewpies…we all love them :)

Some souvenirs from the long weekend:

  • Deena & Ozzy creepers, on sale for a grand total of $29.99
  • vintage gold ring watch, acquired for $10 from a pawn shop
  • Aristocats Squinkie, ~$1.25 from Target
  • NYX matte lipstick in “Pale Pink.” This chalky nightmare of a lipstick was my only regret this weekend. Ugh.
  • a ticket for Gangster Squad, $9 at the Somerville Theatre
  • Sonny Angel x Kewpie iPhone deccopin, on sale for 99¢ from Urban Outfitters

TREASURES~!
