I have officially placed yet another order for bento boxes with Shinzi Katoh. I anticipate the order will be here by the end of the week. Drop me an e-mail with any requests at email@example.com .
Lastly, I am planning to do a trunk show at Hoopla in September. I will post more details soon.

An image from the book was chosen and discussed. A trip to the grocery store was made. At six that evening we sat down with some wine and dinner and finalized the elements of the box. It took about a half an hour to get the first monster just right, but then it was a breeze to put the remaining 15 together. The final boxes turned out great and were a HUGE hit at the party!
party box: cheese quesadilla monster with sea vegetable "hair" , slivered almond horns & claws, and fruit leather stripes, cheese crown, carrot & red pepper trees, asian pear moon, and edamame. (warning: monster claws hidden under trees)
Thanks to a handful of amazing friends (MOTH, corn geode, munsing, bunny team, and hog) we were able to pull it off. We were so into the crunch of things that we only took a few photos, but here they are.
Boxes ready to be filled

Really I have no story for this one. Only that when I asked the Monkey if he wanted me to make something in particular for his lunch he said "a whale". I have no idea why.
