Year Of The Dog Illustration

Digital Illustration for Hawaii Doggie Bakery’s annual Good Luck New Year’s Doggie Mochi. In Hawaii, New Year’s celebrations include a number of different cultural traditions, many of them heavily influenced by the Japanese and Chinese. With that in mind, we decided to create a design that featured the Bakery’s official “taste testers”/mascotts,  Katsumi and Kuri, alongside a number of Japanese New Year symbols/traditions; which are believed to bring prosperity and good fortune throughout the New Year.
