*includes hobonichi techo 2023 A6 english planner book
A cute polar bear drawn by illustrator Izumi Shiokawa is the star of this techo cover.
The illustration was first featured in a polar bear exhibit hosted in 2021 at Hobo Nichoyobi, Hobonichi’s event space.
The soft lines of Shiokawa’s drawings make for a design that feels incredibly gentle as she depicts two young polar bear cubs being held by their mother, and an illustration of a cub walking slowly.
The cotton-based fabric of the cover was chosen for its resemblance to the coloring of polar bears. Silkscreen printing was used to transfer the artwork in a blue-tinted dark gray ink, creating a print that feels glossy and textured.
The back of the includes an illustration of a polar bear cub strolling casually.
The interior pocket shows an innocent polar bear cub sprawled out to make you smile every time you open your techo.
The bookmarks are shiny, thin satin ribbons with diagonally cut tips and a bright red that really pops against the cotton.
The design is simple but so adorable thanks to the charm of Shiokawa’s illustration that it will capture your heart.
