Tokyo Trip: Creativity on Display

When wrapping up their trip to Tokyo, modeS4u’s Managing Director and IT Manager, Sandra and Alan, came across the works of some very talented designers who work with DIY products.  The first artist, Kuroda Tsubasa, uses pom poms to create realistic looking cats and dogs! The second artist is Nakayama Midori, who uses felt to also create very realistic furry friends. Check out some fun images of their work here!
