Catalogue Note

"The design took its original inspiration from a large-breasted girl game that was on a software fan magazine that I picked up at the 1992 summer Comike. With these abnormal swollen nipples and breasts, I could illustrate the depth of Japan's subculture, and the excesses of its art, the psycho-sexual complexes of the Japanese, and the increasingly malformed otaku culture!" - Takashi Murakami (Takashi Murakami, Summon Monsters? Open the Door? Heal? Or Die?, Tokyo 2001, p. 140)
