Are You Hangry & Angry?

May 12 2010: A stuffed animal transformed into a nuclear bomb to destroy the world. A hospital from which patients leave in coffins. Welcome to the world of Japanese designer Gashicon

Kjeld Duits: @Julia: Actually, I always thought the two characters were genderless. During the many hours that I spoke with Gashicon, she never ever said he or she when referring to Hangry and Angry. She was extremely careful to use genderless expressions. Unfortunately, in English you do have to choose a gender, so I ended up using he. Unless you are talking about the singers Hangry and Angry of course. They are clearly girls. Anyway, next time I meet Gashicon I will ask her about the gender of these two characters.
Teretetetet: Inspiring!! Thanks for bringing us fantastic interviews!!
