Santa Claus Purikura

Couldn’t let Christmas slip past me without sharing this bit of holiday purikura posted by the notorious Maria Ozawa on her blog. Hella cute!

Speaking of purikura, my work in the medium is expanding. Here’s a few pics from a recent trip to Japantown’s Pikapika with the one and only Maya Chinchilla.

Halloween Report

Halloween 2009 was on a crackin’ this year in the Mission District. Thanks to some last minute makeup and wardrobe assists from Mariela and my Mom, I became Zombie Frida. Even for a flesh-rotten member of the undead community I was quite the hot mess.

Mariela on the other hand looked great as a vampire. We hooked up and haunted the streets of the Mission in search of blood, brains, and candy.

Zombie Frida herself was a character I created a couple of years back for a series of comic strips that I did about raising the undead.

Since I’ve been doing so much about Purikura these days I think I’ll leave you all with something from the motherland. Here is infamous multi-ethnic Japanese adult-film superstar Maria Ozawa taking part in some Halloween Purikura which she posted on her blog.

Peace,
