gifts for a friend

Today my friend Mu is getting married, congrats Mu! I made him these softies as part of my wedding gift to him and his wife. I based these characters off of a painting that he had given me many years ago (pictured right). I looked up the significance of the giant white radish (daikon) and it is supposed to mean "good luck", specifically a long and healthy life, so I think it's the perfect symbol for beginning a new life with someone!

p.s. Mu, if you have children you better name your kid Peter like we discussed. Peter Pan- come on, you have to.
