We approached Takumi with an idea of having a different animal to represent each color. I wanted to make sure there was a frog and a crow somewhere in the mix, but other than that we left the rest up to him.
We gave Takumi 10 colors and he picked the animals and each of the themes.
Here's what he chose.
Black - #Crow and Japanese Persimmon
Red - #Carp and Autumn Leaves
Green - #Frog and Hydrangea
Yellow - #Fox and Nanjin Berries
Purple - #Bat and Bamboo
Brown - #Hawk and White Plum
White - #Crane and Pine
Blue - #Rabbit and Thinwood
Light Blue - #Cat and Morning Glory
Which one is your favorite? We'd love to hear from you!
