Not your mother’s purikura 1: Dainty Manly Men

…your mother probably doesn’t do purikura anyway, but it sounded good. So what’s purikura? Wikipedia says it better than I do:

In Japan, purikura (プリクラ) refers to a photo sticker booth or the product of such a photo booth. The name is a shortened form of the registered trademark Purinto Kurabu (プリント倶楽部). The term derives from the English print club. Jointly developed by Atlus and Sega, the first purikura machines were sold in July 1995.

Basically, you’re supposed to make pretty pictures of yourself and your giggling squad of girlfriends with “skin beauty” filters applied, little roses, sparkles and bubble stamps applied, and so on. …I believe there is more potential to the medium.

Dainty! I will be exploring it to the fullest in the months and years to come.

Incidentally I currently use the Deco Puri android app for my purikura travesties.

A message from the Easter Jellyfish

a foam and pipe cleaner jellyfish clutching a panicked little fish with googly eyes.

The Easter Jellyfish would like to tell you that it hopes you all have a lovely day regardless of how you spend it!

Yeah I got bored and made this jellyfish out of my son’s craft supplies because…I am obsessed with jellyfish. In fact I want to draw lots more jellyfish, as soon as possible!!

Stay tuned for all jellyfish, ALL THE TIME!! …perhaps not that many jellyfish, but I’m definitely going to make more…
