After several production edition releases of her Hello Kitty vinyl (2019) from Kidrobot, Candie Bolton has created a small-run handpainted edition. Inspired by Japan’s iconic cherry blossoms, the Sakura Kitty features various shades of pink, purple and red with an all-over Sakura flower design from head to toe. The spot use of black in the design adds to the figure’s focus on the anxiety and awkwardness of growing up, being part child / part adult and having to juggle the ‘rules’ of each.
An edition of ten, the Sakura Kitty is available for $300 via lottery. To enter drop a line to firstname.lastname@example.org with your Full Name, Shipping Address, Phone Number and Paypal email. Winners will be selected on Sunday (4.5) and notified with payment instructions. Since there’s not a specific deadline, it’s probably safest to enter before Sunday rolls around.
