Received an honorable mention
I got a honorable mention in the New Years card design contest hosted by New Years card printing website “Reiwa de Nenga” (Insatsu.Net Co., Ltd. /MYPRINT Co., Ltd.). The winning design “Kigurumi Ojisan- Japanese-style/vertical” was the one I liked the best out of the four designs I created.

This is probably the first time I have received any kind of prize or award for illustration or design since I became an adult. I’m honestly happy to have been selected as one of the 20 winners out of more than 4,000 entries. With this as encouragement, I would like to continue to challenge myself in many things.
