I sent this New Year card this year - me and the family all riding on the bike taxi.
This card was designed by Shuichi Maeda, a budding manga artist.
His mother is a student at Imagine and after she sent me the family New Year card 2 years ago, I was so impressed by her son's work that I asked him to design for us too.
I gave him photographs and he created the whole idea of the rabbit-eared bike taxi (my partner is a bike taxi driver in Odori), and then he drew this fun card.
Maeda-san has his own website now to promote his art. If you'd like your own manga card please contact him! His prices are very reasonable and I'm happy to support him.
