Last year I entered a contest to design a new mascot for a brand of stationary aimed at children in Japan. The mascot needed to be an animal. Since I was allowed to enter up to four pieces I went ahead and did so. This is was the first design I came up with. At the time, for reason unknown to me even now, I was really wanted to go to a horse race so that inspired me to make a "lucky" horse mascot. It's small but I put a lucky golden shoe horse on his forehead.
