I've been back in Cape Town for a few weeks now and I've been indulging in all my favorite South African foods. One of these nostalgic treats are called Zoo biscuits. I chose to paint the cookie with a springbok design on it because it's South Africa's national animal. At some point in the past the designs became unrecognizable but I'm glad to see that they have since improved and now include more animal designs.
They are capsules that are dispensed randomly. The prizes are usually little toys, keychains or figurines and in Japan you can gets some really cute and arb things. Tomorrow I'll be painting the mystery contents of this gashapon!
