Shrinky Dinks at the Asian Culture Club

At our last Asian Culture Club, we colored in some anime style Shrinky Dinks, because hey, Shrinky Dinks are always cool! Below is a picture of the finished, shrunken forms, and they came out really good! We should be getting in the first issue of Otaku USA Magazine soon, we just recently subscribed, and I could see using their huge picture layouts for future art projects.
