AnimeUSA 2013 Kaede Mascot Design by kevinbolk AnimeUSA 2013 Kaede Mascot Design by kevinbolk
Once again, I've been tapped to do the Mascot design for Anime USA, a fun-tastic anime convention in Washington DC. This year's theme is "Journey Back to Edo Japan," and this is Kaede, the convention's mascot, in a costume inspired by motifs from that era.

Mascot designs from previous years...
