Tanaka, whose work can be found on the catwalks of fashion houses like Gucci and Versace, explains how she began drawing animal designs as a way to express her love for animals.
“I started by drawing animals because they’re cute, they’re playful, and they have a sense of humor,” Tanaka says.
“And I wanted to do something with them that was something fun, something that wasn’t just cute, but that also had some meaning.”
To accomplish this, Tanaka went to her mom, who was a graphic designer, and asked her how to do it, as well as what type of design she’d like to work on.
“My mom asked me what I was thinking, and I said, ‘I’m thinking of animal designs,’ ” Tanaka recalls.
“So, I thought, ‘Well, I’ll just draw some animal designs and make them into collages, and then I’ll draw the collages myself,'” she says.
After a few months, she started working on the collage designs, which are now available online for anyone to download.
“It was a really fun process, because it was a lot of fun to just see the results, and to make something that was very cute and fun,” Tanaka explains.
Tanaka says they all have a sort of charm to them, but each one also has a personality. “

In the end, she says it was important to find something that appealed to everyone. “
Each one has a different look to it, and the designs vary a lot,” she says, adding that she’d recommend everyone to “draw a little bit of everything.”
