How to make Kappa Babies

After the Kappa Show at Moshi Moshi started, some of our
friends asked us how Mizuno managed to hand-paint all the
thirty small "Kappa Baby" pieces. So we decided to reveal the secret here. (1) She did the sketches of the babies and items
first. (upper left photo) (2) Then she made templates out of
tracing paper (upper middle) and traced the outlines in pencil on the Japanese paper prepared with texture gel... (3) and
painted all of them with acrylic. Some of the paintings are still available and waiting for their owners! If you are interested in purchasing, visit the gallery website and click on "gallery".

"THE KAPPA SHOW" at Gallery Moshi Moshi

Mizuno is doing a solo show at Moshi Moshi, her friend
Billy Galaxy's store in Portland from July 3rd to August 5th. 
It's a mini-show with three big paintings on canvas and  thirty little pieces on Japanese paper ( They are all hand-painted.
NOT PRINTS!) that are pretty affordable.

All the pieces will be available on the gallery's website soon.

What is "Kappa" ?
"Kappa" are water sprites in Japanese folklore, often depicted as tortoise-like humanoids with green skin, beaked faces and 
shells on their backs. A cavity on the top of their heads is
filled with water and is said to be their vulnerable spot - when it's dry, they lose their energy and power. Kappa appear in a
lot of Japanese comics, animation, TV commercials, etc. They are loved by people as a cute character despite the fact that
they are rumored to drag humans into the water and pull out
their guts through their anuses.
