Thank you!

I wish I had more time to continue posting on TokyoBunnie. For 10+ years, with nearly 3,500 posts, I shared artists, exhibitions, and makers that inspired me. I hope you found someone or something here that inspired you, too. Being a mom and running my shops, Bored Inc and Dissent Club doesn't leave me with enough time to continue posting here. But I'm leaving the blog as it is, since it still gets visits, and it's still helping promote all the amazing creatives I found along the way. Thanks to everyone who read and supported this project! XO, Courtney

Hello Kitty & 99 Friends at PIQ

I was SO EXCITED to be asked to create a piece for the Hello Kitty & 99 Friends show opening this weekend at PIQ Products in New York! Of course I am a lifetime Sanrio fan, and I've had tons of favorite characters over the years. When I got to choose my character for the show, I immediately thought of Queenie Lou, the adorable rainbow swan that accompanied the Deery Lou friend characters in the late '90s. I did a papercut for the show, which you can see below!

Here's the show details:

'California Love' at Leanna Lin's Wonderland

I am super late posting this, but I created three original paper cuts for the California Love show at Leanna Lin's Wonderland! I really enjoyed working on this theme! I'm a California native, raised in Los Angeles and now residing in San Francisco, so there's tons of stuff I really love about The Golden State. I knew right away my first piece for the show would be Sea Otters- my all time favorite animal! I also did a piece featuring the California Bear, since it's the BEST animal to have as a state mascot, and my third piece is a burger and taco- California's best foods!

The show runs through April 24th and there's lots of great work by other artists that you can check out on Leanna's online shop here.

New Mythicals from Monster Factory!

Remember the adorable Mythicals plush Kickstarter last year from Monster Factory that resulted in the wonderful mythical beings Carl the Yeti, Jeff the Pegasus, Spencer the Dragon, Margot the Unicorn, Louie the Monster, and Miranda the Sea Monster? Now, there's some new characters being added to this merry band of misfits!

Meet...Paul the Minotaur, Feliz the Cyclops, and Martha the Ghost!

From the Monster Factory press release:

A Minotaur named Paul. Keep an eye on Paul if you go around town with him. He gets lost in malls, parking lots, crowded places… you get the picture

A Cyclops named Felix. Felix would rather suffer the discomfort of not being able to see clearly than have to wear his glasses in public.

A ghost named Martha. Rarely seen during daylight hours, Martha has been a night owl her entire… um… life?

This new squad of magical creatures officially launches on October 26th, but are currently available for pre-order via You can also find and buy the rest of the Mythicals on the site as well!
