"Tottemo Daisuki"

My Doraemon wooden nesting doll custom for "Memories are Made of This" show at Munky King.

(The name "Tottemo Daisuki" came from the Doraemon cartoon theme song, which means "I really like it / you!")



These were burned with soldering iron and then painted with acrylics. They're coated with a satin seal. Oh, and there's a special surprise inside the smallest one, just as you would expect from Doraemon's magic pocket!

This will be the last show at Munky King, Melrose, so be sure to check it out if you can! Proceeds will benefit the Los Angeles Children’s Hospital 4W Supportive Care Committee and the CHIME Preschool Inclusion Program.
