Guest Information


Fashion Designer


GASHICON is the illustrator and character designer for hANGRY&ANGRY, a character brand which features grotesquely cute cats named Hangry and Angry. Much like twisted versions of Sanrio's Hello Kitty, Hangry and Angry are used in a vast array of eclectic contexts. They are featured on a line of Japanese fashions by h.NAOTO which display a unique style known as "gro-kawa" (grotesque-cute). They are the main characters in a comic strip published in visual kei magazines such as CURE. Hangry and Angry also adorn merchandise such as plush characters, bags, and trinkets. In 2008, the J-rock duo, HANGRY&ANGRY FUTURE, was created with former Morning Musume members Hitomi Yoshizawa as Hangry and Rika Ishikawa as Angry. The Death Note live action movie also involved the hANGRY&ANGRY brand.
