The latest craze of Florentijn Hofman’s Rubber Duck Project in Hong Kong lately inspired me to create a new character called Aoi Ahiru. Aoi in Japanese refers to the blue-green color. Ahiru in Japanese means duck. The name is partially a tribute to one of my favorite Sanrio characters from the early ’90′s Ahiru No Pekkle. Who remembers this cutie?
Aoi Ahiru has a special story. He was born originally yellow in color but over the course of time his feathers started turning blue green because he ate too many glowing microorganisms while swimming in Okinawa. Soon Aoi Ahiru’s feathers began glowing at night. He often helps lead lost ducklings back to their family.
Come show Aoi Ahiru some love by downloading and sharing his free wallpapers below!
