Tanuki-san, tanuki-san, why are you laughing so hard? He might be behind that missing sock...or a couple! Even with that big grin on his face, he enjoys cuddling as much as pranking. If you ever feel sad, this Happy Tanuki will always be there to tell you a joke or two. The Tanuki (or raccoon dog) is a mischievous spirit part of Japanese folklore, known for his transforming talent involving a leaf and his shenanigans.
I'm a 24 years old Japan-fanatic from Canada! I've been drawing since forever, mostly anime and animals. I don't draw very much these days, only when inspiration strikes. I've been wanting to put this design out here for a couple years now. I hope you find this design as lovely as I do.
