Today, amidst all the bad news of global toilet paper shortages, is a good day. I came around in a full circle: I posted a collection of inflatable body pillows (soon to be had a oversized dakimakura with pillow fillings as well) by Erdbeer Joghurt, a German furry artists who, unbeknownst to her then, has a great influence on me. It all started with a casually posted image of an inflatable whale, on which she had decorated the belly with an anime drawing (ca. 2012 or 13).
