I painted this little panda as part of a project I was working on earlier this year — illustrations for a game called “Bamboo Harvest.” Check out the game, tweet about it to @bamboo_harvest.
The project left me with lots and lots of extra pandas and red pandas and elephants — all bamboo eaters. I have gradually made them into etegami. Here I decorated one with an unseasonal quotation, from Dostoevsky: “I love the sticky little leaves as they open in spring.”
Here’s another leftover from the Bamboo Harvest project, a red panda out on a limb. And another panda, not rushing. And a different red panda, taking a little rest. Oh, and yet another panda, wishing you a cake of bamboo.
