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.

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.
