Update: Welcome, visitors from Joystiq and beyond! Please feel free to check out the rest of this website. And if you happen to have an iPhone or iPod Touch, check out my apps ’cause baby diapers and food are expensive! It’s like the boy just eats and poops 24-7…
At our baby shower, one of our friends, Asaki Oda, offered to paint our nursery for us. Now, Asaki is a professional set designer for theater plays and clothing stores so this wasn’t just a simple offer of “I’ll paint it blue for you”, but more along the lines of “I’ll make something cool.”
She asked us what kind of style we’d like. I wanted something with big, simple, yet bold shapes with bright colors and cute characters. Then I thought, what about the video game Loco Roco? My wife and I both loved that game. And you couldn’t ask for cuter characters.
So we left the country for a month to pick up our baby. While we were out, Asaki and four more of our dear friends went to work and when we returned, this is what we came back to!
