Kawaii

I had an idea to make fun little characters for Halloween and I'll be delving in and posting results shortly.

Here's what I have so far.


Available at society6 and etsy.


The candy corn character stood out to me after years of going to halloween parties and seeing this candy left behind.  I was imagining this scene as I drew up the design.

I read sections of this book to get a quick primer on kawaii and other aspects of Japanese design.
