The red-crowned crane (also known as the Japanese crane) is a beautiful bird that I thought would look fantastic as a Squishable! Sure, he might not be able to fly because of his round (and very squishy!) body, but he loves fish, dancing in the snow, and of course, snuggles!
I have been drawing since before I was in preschool. I also love to design and create things (including my own stuffed animals), so I thought this contest was right up my alley. A lot of my art is Japanese-influenced in some way, because Japanese culture is one of my major interests.
