"There is a chain of convenience stores in Tokyo called Family Mart... I have represented my family as maneki neko cats- drawing attention to the obvious differences. The text is good luck slogans from maneki neko and the pattern below is from traditional Japanese fan designs.
The Daruma doll is one I have on my mantelpiece - when you get a daruma doll, you colour in one of the eyes and make a resolution or plan - then, when your plan comes to fruition, you colour in the other eye then burn the doll." - Gabby Malpas
