There are some things you love in your youth that you know you'll love forever. Hello Kitty and Sanrio are some of those things. I hope my future daughters are prepared to love them too.
I came across this post by DollyBeast a little while ago about The Small Gift Los Angeles Art Show and loved every single inch of it. They invited 50 artists including Buff Monster and Audrey Kawasaki to recreate the Sanrio characters, and the results are awesome. I can't pick a favourite, but I would very much like the $14,500 Buff Monster "All My Favourite Flavours" piece.
Check out Japan L.A. for more and to buy what's left of the pieces.
