This P.I.Y. is by Emi Kazama.
Emi does illustration and graphi design and is one half of Ameiko with Kao.
Emi's P.I.Y. figure has a very different approach with colorful dots and a golden glitter, but if you look closely, it has a mischievous looking face on one side.
Emi also did the graphic design of the goods at the Echigo Tsumari Art Triennale.
Here are pictures of P.I.Y. paper mache animals painted by Mejunje.
Mejunje are our friends from Buenos Aires, Julian and Mercedes.
They painted these this past Spring during their stay in Tokyo.
They have a wild style that's quite a contrast to ours and that is exactly why we like having them painted by other artists.
F.I.Y., the yellowish one is by Julian and the pink head is by Mercedes.
