Making Of: Paper Rabbits Logo Cookies

I’ve had a few people ask if the Logo cookies were real. They were very real and were consumed by some fellow animators afterwards. Here is proof: Making of the Paper Rabbits logo cookies. Enjoy!

…. and tadaaaaa!

Have a great weekend everyone 🙂

Mega Man Tribute Art Book Premier: Yoroshikudesu


Earlier this year I drew these two illustrations to celebrate Capcom’s own Mega Man’s birthday. Mega man too was born in 1987 the year of the Rabbit.

I am really happy that I could contribute as I have fond childhood memories of playing Rock Man or more so watching my brother play, as I never got that far.
When I showed this to my brother and his reaction was :
“….. that has nothing to do with Rock Man.”
M: “I didn’t draw Rock Man… but I drew Cut man!! and Roll and Rock Man is in the doily lace see?! … ”
Brother: “…”
M: “….”

I love you brother !!!

Also here is the second one. My take on Splash Woman the robotic mermaid songstress with helmet off. (As I have never seen her with out it )

Anyway enough from me and here is some infos :

-the book is premiering at the San Diego Comic-con at the UDON booth (#5037), July 20-24
-for fans not attending the show, you can preorder the book at ( )

– The standard softcover edition is also available for preorder on (

I can’t wait to see what’s inside myself 😀


2011 year of the Rabbit, Samurai Heart; Hope for Japan Sneaker design

Hello and hisashiburi,

I can’t believe it is already July. My last post was a Christmas post! I’ve missed you! *Leap hug*
2011 is the year of the rabbit, the same as 1987 the year I was born in.
Chinese zodiac may not mean much here in Australia, but personally I was jumping around and ready to soak up this once in a 12 year occasion. … not sure how, but I was excited.
Here is a quick dribble scribble of how 2011 started off for me.

Ironically these events became inspiration. The strength displayed by the people who were affected and how people around the world worked as one to aid these areas.
At the time, Foot Locker was holding a sneaker art competition, so I tried to channel some of that inspiration and contribute. Here is my entry, Samurai Heart: Hope for Japan design.

In other news, I have received an art grant to start a personal project. I’ll be starting it next week! More about it soon.
Hope everyone is well!!

xxoo Makoto
