Daruma
       
     
  The entirety of this garment is painted by hand, and the rear imagery features a traditional Japanese Daruma doll with "2016" written across the chest. These dolls represent good luck, and working towards established goals. When the doll is received, both eyes are blank and it is up to the owner to color in one eye upon setting a goal. The one-eyed doll acts as a reminder, and only upon completion of the goal is the other eye to be colored in. Traditionally the dolls are burned after completion around new years day.
       
     
  This wearable piece features the word "kaizen" on the front, reflective of the Japanese practice of continual improvement. While traditionally applicable toward business, this mentality works best when applied to multiple aspects of life.

It's now the start of a new year, did you make any resolutions? Did you set any goals? My first project of 2016 is reflective of the annual trend we have of often setting out to resolve ourselves, and what it means to improve.

These dolls represent good luck, and working towards established goals. When the doll is received, both eyes are blank and it is up to the owner to color in one eye upon setting a goal.
