My Geisha Hello Kitty outline that I worked on last night. There will be some nice Japanese waves/swirls behind her and a few cherry blossoms and of course, a nice print on her kimono. I know HK is everywhere you look now, but having grown up in the 70’s, she wasn’t. It was always a special treat to get on the Archer bus, go to Chinatown and spend what little extra money I had to get a an uber cute Hello kitty pen, sticker book or a stationary set. To me, HK was a part of my childhood that was innocent and “mine”. She represented beauty, sweetness, and adventure . It was an escape from my world that wasn’t so sweet or innocent. That is why I will always love my Hello Kitty no matter how much she is over-marketed.
