Mogu vs. Barbapapa

I was quite disappointed with this year Mogu exhibition in Milano. Not as fun as last year and you didn’t get a free Mogu. But who can resist these soft Barbapapas from the 2004 collection; to cuddle while listening to Airs Moon Safari. Update (16/08/21): This post was part of a week-long “Next Century Modern […]

Tiger Magazine

I had forgotten about the nice online publication Tiger Magazine. Issue 29 out now (I thank Being Hunted for reminding me).

Presents!

I’m happy today. I got two presents, from two different girls! Nadine from Tokyo Shoes was nice enough to send my a Baby Doggie from the Baby Milo Kubrick series (see what Jean got here). Then my swedish friend Anja, living in Washington, sent me a heavy package including chocolate “kisses”, a huge book by […]

Self Promotion?

I did some self promotion on the event by putting one of my business cards in each of the urinal in the men’s room. Wonder if it worked? Update (16/08/13): This post was part of a week-long “Next Century Modern Blog” stint, by guest blogger Jesper Larsson.
