I was reading a book that features various artists and literary figures from Japan when I came across Yoshitomo Nara's work. In many of his works, you can see this little girl with high forehead, squinty eyes and chubby cheeks and she reminds me so much of H. Cute factor. I only hope H will not develop the anger that shows in her eyes sometimes. I believe he is one of modern cult artists hence you can see the little girl holding a tiny dagger sometimes, though in his explanation, she is hardly aggressive since the knife is so small.

Not many people will want to associate anger or any form of evils with children but you can't say they are all angels otherwise, why Terrible twos, threes and even up to twenties?? Its part of growing up.
