Koinobori by shiropanda Koinobori by shiropanda
A little bit too late!

I drew these koinobori 鯉幟 because it was children's day in Japan earlier this month!
The biggest fish represents the father, the other fish the mother and the smallest fish represents the child.

I've heard that a lot. Someone told me about it last year, i didn't even knew her.
I have to admit i don't really like Lisa Frank's art to be honest.

As everyone else has said, these colours are amazing. It's not just the colours themselves, but the combination as a whole. I've never seen such muted tones proffer such vibrancy!
