Tofu Tuesday: Mushrooooom!!

It’s hard to practice any sort of self control when you have two art lovers in the house and an entire art festival filled with reasonably priced pieces. We’re not art collectors as such, we just like a lot of cool stuff. Cool being subjective of course. Over the weekend at the Japanese Art Festival, The Koala and I gained five new pieces of art.

This is one of them. The Koala saw it first, fell in love with it and I didn’t need much convincing. The frame is made by the artists husband and I love how it has a really rustic feel.

Titled Mushrooooom!! by Masmi Sakakibara, I thought it would be fitting to introduce the mushroom artwork to the rabbit with the mushroom coloured features.

I am Genie, a graphic designer/photographer obsessed with food and bunnies. I live in Whanganui, New Zealand with my husband, The Koala and our two rabbits, Kobe and Bento. I write about my hedonistic ways and I love the mantra "Eat well, travel often". I prefer not to write about myself in third person.


  1. That bunny looks like he needs a hug. A great big hug.
    Very cool art, indeed…but weren’t you recently complaining that you don’t have enough space for the art you already own? Just sayin’.

  2. That’s such a nice piece! It actually gave me flashbacks to a shot I animated at my old work place where three ferrets dump about a hundred little mushrooms into a big heap in front of a little dinosaur, before he wakes up and decides to eat the mushrooms. I had to hand-animate every one of those little mushrooms, and it took forever!

    But yes, really nice addition to your collection!

  3. That’s awesome! You should do a house tour post – I’d love to see all your art and cool tchotchkes that I imagine you have.

    We have a similar problem…three framed posters ready to go up and no idea where to put them…a rearrange might be necessary for us, too! I actually had to put my foot down and say no at the Affordable Art Fair the other day. It hurt.

  4. Just found out that I somehow got unsubscribed! WordPress grrrrrrrr!

    I was just thinking I missed my Monday Bundays and Tofu Tuesdays!

  5. Oh Tofu, you are a handsome boy. Those mushrooms really bring out his nose. How do you get him to stay still? Mine just run towards me for cuddles.

    • My subjects only need to stay still for 1/250th of a second or however much I have my shutter speed set to. SLR cameras are awesome. I wouldn’t attempt this with a regular point and shoot.

I love your comments! Your comments are like extra melted cheese on top.
