maneki neko

The maneki neko or lucky cat are common figurines/statues that symbolize good luck. The raised paw is a gesture of beckoning. According to Wikipedia, “a statue with the left paw raised is to get more customers, while the right paw raised is to get more money. Hence it is also said that the one with left paw is for business and the right is for home.”

I used the Kunayi brush in Procreate to mimic the Sumi-e style I was also going for a more simplistic design.

I might make this into a sticker. Let me know if you’d be interested in getting one!!
