Howan Hwan


My friends Rikako and Heisuke live in Tokyo with their kitty who looks like a panda bear. They named him Howan-howan because it sounds like "panda". I tried to have some fun with illustrator and designed this for the kitty. The web-safe colors didn't turn out as nice as the original color, but oh well....

Hello hwan-howan! I changed the blog to say that your name sounds like panda, not that it means panda in chinese like I thought. Sorry! Anyway, the string is for your cat fun and the green is like bamboo, only it is very not-real looking. ^_^
