The sea is full of magic and wonder, quietly isolated and away from most human eyes. There is a lovely sense of peace to be had, where one's experiences feel near surreal, like a dream. I wanted to tell stories from the deep and journey under the depths to little aquariums filled with whimsical make-believe and nonsensical ambiguity.

RYUCA was born in 1981 and is based in Tokyo. She uses children as motifs and expresses feelings and emotions which are difficult to put into words. These children aren't fighting the irrational world. They accept and love it.
Joey Chou is a 2006 graduate from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. He is an animation artist who has illustrated for several children's books, self-published his own titles, and illustrated Disney's "It's A Small World Sing Along Book" paying tribute to Mary Blair's design of the classic amusement park ride.
Flat Bonnie was created to help bring awareness to the life of bunnies in shelters and rescue centers. Most people do not know that there are bunnies ready for adoption at these places. Flat Bonnie plushes are made for people who love bunnies and for people who may want a real bunny but are not ready to provide the proper care and finances needed to raise the bunny. When that person is ready for a real bunny, Flat Bonnie's message is to adopt from a local shelter or rescue center. A generous portion of all sales is donated to bunny/animal rescue organizations monthly.
