We Heart Nihon

There's not much we can add to the terrible events Japan has endured during and following the devastating earthquake and tsunami that literally rocked the planet (seriously folks, my husband is a geologist and that's how big a 9.0 earthquake is -- the earth's axis shifted for pete's sake. Japan's coastline moved 8 feet. It was a BIG quake.). Of course we wanted to give back, thankfully Q Pop, a shop we love in Los Angeles, held a benefit featuring all kinds of cool art and stuff for sale to help raise money for local hospitals near Sendai, Japan, where the earthquake hit hardest. We donated a ton of guts to show how much we heart Japan, and not all of it sold at the actual event, so you'll soon -- not posted yet -- be able to buy some guts online and have all the money sent to help Japan in its time of need. Obviously, we feel our company owes a huge debt to Japan, whose kawaii-style illustrations have inspired us to put happy faces on super-simplified internal organs in the first place. We have no doubt the Japanese will find the resources and intestinal fortitude to pull through this impossibly difficult time.
