Notes: Takashi Murakami’s “Mr. DOB” portraits date back to the beginning of the artist’s career when the artist was looking for an iconic, easily recognizable, self-portrait – a way to brand himself. Like a logo, the letter ‘D’ appears in the character’s left ear, the letter ‘B’ in the right ear, and ‘O’ is formed by the character’s face. Though the overall image is reminiscent of Mickey Mouse, all of Murakami’s elements are traditionally Japanese – anime characters like Doraemon and Sonic the Hedgehog and the letters DOB are thought to be a contraction of “Dobojite dobojite” (why? why?), a catchphrase of Japanese comedian Toru Yuri.
