My new Domo slippers, um, jealous much? Bought on ebay for $1.99US [no reserve]!

Domo, for those who don’t know, is/was a mascot for a Japanese tv network. He [it]  has appeared in many animated shorts  in Japan and the USA as well tonnes of merchandise, video games etc… I think the character is such a sharp design. Simple but striking and memorable. Japanese designers have this knack of creating great, basic, but enduring character designs … Hello Kitty, Pokémon for example.

This image [below] had some controversy back in 2002 when it was used for a public service announcement parody with the tagline, Every time you masturbate… God kills a kitten. Of course this was not endorsed by the tv station [about].
