When I was 11 years old, a father of my friend recommended my illustration, and was chosen for the package design for an ice cream product. The ice cream package with my illustration was placed on the shelves, and when I saw families smiling as they placed the ice cream packages into their basket, I realized what I wanted to do - I wanted to design things that would make people smile.
Design: Crane Origami
In Japan, the proverb "Cranes live for 1000 years, turtles live for 10,000 years" brings good luck. People used to place pictures and artifacts of cranes and turtles, but nowadays this is not a common sight. An origami of a crane and turtle has been made, with patterns on the folds, making it a more modern design for modern homes.
The colors in the rug will be perceived differently depending on the angle you view it from.
