Dr. Esther Chin

Ok, so I agree this is not the type of art you usually expect from me.  A few years back when I was going through Menopause, I created this little character called Dr. Esther Chin, a dispenser of cures for HAREMONES. She gives out advice.  So if you asked the good doctor  what to do about  mood swings, she would prescribe a Gin and Tonic.  I  "doctored" this sketch as she used to be a rabbit. But once I removed her ears, I realized she is really a self portrait.

I am feeling light hearted.  I am once again in Nagoya and in a few minutes will join the magnificent Juli Johnson, a designer who works at Bunnies By The Bay, and she and I will ride shot gun in the back of truck with our hand made displays and little tins of touch up paint to install our first Bunnies By The Bay Hare Couture Boutique inside the Mitsukoshi Department Store here in Japan.  We hope to be back to our rooms by dawn.


  1. First of all, I LOVE Dr. Esther Chin. And secondly, what FUN to set the stage for a new boutique display! Oh, I can just imagine the fun you will have. Please take pictures! Those of us on the other side of the world need to see!!

  2. Dr. Esther Chin, you made me smile!!! Have a wonderful time in Nagoya!

  3. I second Maia! Please take pictures!!! I join the chorous of those in love with dear Dr.Esther Chin.

  4. Dr. Esther Chin, I love your self portrait too!
    I'm a bit jealous ... window display in Nagoya!!

  5. Ester Grin is a very wise doctor indeed, she prescribed red wine for all my menopause symptoms.
