studio uamou purin

Sanrio is celebrating 20 years of their Pom Pom Purin character with an exhbition full of artwork and Purin-related goods from the past two decades. And they've even invited Japanese sofubi artist, Ayako Takagi - designer of Uamou - to customize a ceramic sculpture of the yellow dog with a beret. She's applied an illustration of Uamou and Boo floating over a mountain range below, the stars and cosmic dust above. Check out more of the ehibition here.

    DCON is coming up quick, so the exclusives are starting to be revealed. You've probably seen Ayako Takagi's sugar skull Uamous before, but these ones are hand painted.

    You probably don't need much convincing to go to DCON this year, but just in case you do, check out the preview for the Toy Within a Toy exhibition organized by Broke Piggy.

    Ah, such soothing colors. This might be my favorite Uamou series since the Tengu and Cobalt series, which had an amazing matte finish. These ones, though, feature calming gradients painted by legendary airbrush artist, Goto-san.
