Larchive Friday – Ham-Lar-O
Fridays, we open the Larchives, Lar’s extensive archive of art work oddities, and share a few pieces.
New month (yep, it’s already February 2021), new MS Society fundraiser theme!
For February, the illustrious Lar deSouza will turn you into a hamster! Get your personalized Hamtaro-inspired avatar, and support the MS Society at the same time.
What’s A Hamtaro?
What are you, old?
Hamtaro, known in Japan as Trotting Hamtaro, is a Japanese manga and storybook series created and illustrated by Ritsuko Kawai. The manga is serialized in Shogakukan’s all-girl’s magazine Ciao in 1997, focusing on a hamster named Hamtaro who has a variety of adventures with other hamsters, known as “Ham-Hams”.
Google aside, Hamtaros are adorable. Look at those eyes! So, if you or someone you love would like an adorable avatar, now’s your chance!
