How i CREATE?
Illustration has the power of imagination. It makes it possible for me to create anything I wish in my mind. By the infinite imagination, I shaped the rabbit's soft body into the ice-cream cone which evokes happiness in every viewer's heart and mind. A herd of playful rabbits are melting from ice cream under the hot summer time. This is how Mochi Rabbit was born.
Another notable feature for Mochi rabbits is when two of them are hugging each other. Their compact rolling shape is exactly like a white dumpling ball. They soon camouflage themselves into Xiao long Bao - the most popular dish in Taiwan. Mochi rabbits definitely show their skill at flexibility and hiding, as well as their naughty personality.

What is going to happen?
challenge & future
When it comes to marketing a character, storytelling was one of the most challenging parts for me. I didn't realize this until my recent participation in a marketing course. Storytelling is the most effective way that people can easily remember, and at helping people relate to my characters. Therefore, , when I am telling the story about Mochi Rabbit, I have to create an experience that resonates with my viewers.
Now, I am starting to create Mochi rabbits' picture books for children along with an emphasis on education events which describes the Mochi rabbits' adventurous journey. In fact, it is crucial to think dynamically about the future in every design and using it to improve our lives. My hope is that the characters I design are not only adorable but also able to inspire children's imagination and power their creative minds.
