"tambourine" 2000-01a/w

I came across the chance to meet this pattern "tambourine". I still don't know why. I feel like I didn't draw, but it just came to me.

One day, this pattern popped into my head, and it was an interesting encounter, as if it had come to the surface of the paper by itself using my hands. I don't mean to sound godly, but sometimes I feel like the design chooses me and visits me in my head. I make a way for my eyes, ears and mind to make it easier for design to come to me. Then, the seed of ideas for design will come along the way. As weird as it sounds, I think I'm writing this, but I've always wondered how ideas come to me unrelated to everyday events.

"tambourine". It's such a simple figure that continues to push back of my life. Each grain is an imperfect circle. Therefore, it synchronizes with the vibration of a person's mind. Perhaps imperfection is the proof of life. The time my hands took to draw was short. But the time of the making of products will continue for a long, long time. I'm sure it will go far beyond the time of my life. We hope to create joy in people's lives around the world.
