Ichigo Mama Panya

Here we go! Ichigo Mama Panya will drop on 07/03/10 at the Tomenosuke Gifu shop in Japan and I will be there for a 2 hour signing. I'm epically thrilled because this is the first time that I will be in Japan and if you've been following my art, stories, etc you should know very well how much this will mean to me. Back to Ichigo Mama-these hand painted resins will be sold as a set. One 6" Ichigo Mama and one 1.75" Berry Shroom. Please contact Tomenosuke at for all international inquiries. Here is the story...

Ichigo Mama-Panya is a baker that makes colorful Shiitake Shroom cakes for a living.
One day she found a large strawberry on the sidewalk that fell from a tree in front of a
wizard's home. She picked it up and hurried back to her bakery to decorate her famous
Berry Shroom cake with it. The cake came alive and told her that what she did was
unclean and dirty. Ichigo slapped the ungrateful cake and was about to discard him
until he begged her not to. Ichigo thought long and hard about the Berry Shroom's
fate until she decided that she could use an extra hand in her bakery.
The Berry Shroom was relieved and got to work immediately.
They bonded and shared many secrets. When the Berry Shroom knocked over a jar
of flour he sneezed repeatedly.
This made his colors change.
Ichigo was in shock when she realized her outfit colors changed as well.
