Kure Kure Takora

There are no words to describe my fascination with the 1970s tokusatsu Japanese Children's Comedy show Kure Kure Takora (Translation: Gimme Gimme Octopus) - The show produced by Toho Company Ltd. aired on Fuji TV and it's subsidaries for roughly a year with a total of 260 Episodes... The picture above is the central character TAKORA who coveted for everything saying "KURE! (I want it)" all the time. Each episode was absurd, strange, surreal, indescribable, and ran 3 minutes each. Gimme, Gimme, Gimme, Gimme, Gimme!!!!!!

You may have noticed that a character (actually group of characters) seem to be popping up in my new body of work (over the year)...I coin them "SKELVES"...They seem to be a by-product of my fascination with the occult (both Western and Eastern). I have big plans with them, some very cool projects - stay tuned!!!
