Back-tracking a little, 2012 was the Year of the Dog, not in relation to the Chinese zodiac (2012, year of the dragon) but it was the year when so many people around me became responsible dog owners. It was as if a “buy a dog” switch flicked inside everyone’s head. While I wasn’t overcome with the desire, I loved seeing it happen around me. There were so many new puppies to meet and go on play dates with, minus the hard part of looking after them. Lucky me 🙂 Here are some puppy pals ->
While reaping the benefits of this new dog craze … I was dreaming of Scandinavian Sweets.
The combination of these two very different things, Dogs and Scandinavian sweets, resulted in a three piece illustration set: Scandi Sweets.
The set is now available at my print shop: http://society6.com/makotokoji
