A vampire rabbit, a rice monster and a demon chef walk into a cafe...

...Purple Peanuts Japanese Cafe, to be precise. It's a funky little spot on Collins Street (near the corner of Spencer St) in Melbourne, and it's now home to these guys, who are all made from recycled materials. Look around next time you're ordering lunch and you'll see them waving demonically from the walls! And while you're there, have a close look at the chef, Daigo...and then a second look at the red furry guy on the right. Hmmm. Black-and-white checked chef's pants...long black dreadlocks...I do believe they have quite a bit in common! Peter, the cafe owner, asked me to make a critter "that looks a bit like Daigo" and that's what I came up with. Although Daigo was not red and furry last time I checked!
