Hello Kitty Wine is Real

Hello Kitty Wine is Real

hello kitty wineI’m still not sure whether the Hello Kitty Beer was an actual Sanrio product. I’m thinking someone I know would have brought some to a party if it were. However, it is absolutely confirmed that there will now be a whole line of Hello Kitty wines.

Not whines like, “I really want the citrine Hello Kitty diamond ring” or “I really have to have advance access to Capcom’s Monster Hunter Diary: Poka Poka Felyne Village featuring Hello Kitty“. I mean wines, with no H, but with, like, ya know, booze and stuff. I admit that I am not a wine aficionado. It seems out of character, I know, but I prefer beer (or honestly sparkling water.)

Amelia G: What first got you into creating? Were you always creative?

Serena Toxicat: Apparently as a 5 year-old my painting looked like pointillism. My 1st grade art teacher raved about the stuff. After my dad saw how much I liked to color and paint, his best friend bought me a set of acrylics and I never looked back, except to kick my own ass to make more. I do so many things in the world of art and performance that my productivity in any one area tends to ebb and flow.

Amelia G: What are your favorite media to create in and how to you feel writing vs. visual arts compare for expressing yourself?

Serena Toxicat: I love acrylic and just developed a system whereby I draw in marker over an acrylic base. I also like making sculpture with found objects and occasionally indulge in photography. I made . . .
