KHLOE & KIBBLE
This series was in a way inspired by a few japanese animated movies like “Your Name”, “Whisper of the Heart” and “Ocean Waves”. These movies reminded me of how magical every day moments can be and I wanted to create a series capturing those moments.
For this series I created a new character – my protagonist and hero – Khloe. Khloe just graduated from High school and is about to head off to university. She is accompanied by her trusty Shiba Inu Kibble and together, I follow her on her journey through life.

Who doesn’t want to do a little diggin’ on this beautiful day?

Bridge of Hope –
This was the first image in this series, depicting Khloe and Kibble starting on their adventure and in many ways this piece is also a representation of me, starting to go on this new journey with them.
Fun Fact: The bridge design is based on a bridge along the Hachiman-bori canal (八幡堀) in Ōmihachiman, Shiga-ken, Japan.
