Doodle A Day

Niko the penguin always knows how to cheer Kana the panda up. 7.11.2014

Hello! :)

It's been a long time since I last blogged. A lot has been going on including some new products in the works! My goal today is to get through everyone's emails and messages. I'm so sorry if you've been waiting for a reply but I promise all emails will be replied to by tomorrow!

In other news, I've started doodling daily again! But this time I'm introducing all the new characters so it won't just be penguin doodles. ;) So far, Kana the Panda has been seeing drinking root beer and making wishes on her Tanabata tree:

Penguin Doodles

PenguinDoodles1_APR26 Happy Friday! :)

Thank you so much for all the kind words and love on my new business cards yesterday!! And it seems like a few of you would be interested in those pinback buttons or button magnets that I mentioned so I'm going to look into that. :)


This week's doodle theme came from my friend, Roe, which was "fish" or "fishing". Haha, I can't remember. Courtney and I were trying to fill a whole page with the theme but I was only able to draw two penguins. The rest I doodled throughout the week. :)

Which penguin is your favorite for this week?

Lots of Smiles, Akiyo
