Brian McCarty's photo of Hello Kitty

Ecard 0974ADesigner toy photographer Brian McCarty shot this lovely portrait of Hello Kitty. The piece is titled "Three Apples," which according to Ms. Kitty's bio is her weight. Brian writes:

Truly an icon for the time, (Hello Kitty) is a totem and emblem of kinship for devotees of cute. With this realization, it was easy to take another step and cast Hello Kitty not just as a revered symbol, but also as a god.

Young Julia Coburn is seen in a desperate (albeit cute) state, floating away under a canopy of balloons. As Hello Kitty looks on, it's purposely unclear as to what role she plays…or will play in Julia's survival.
