*UPDATE* the artist is Hisamatu Etsuko
christmas cards by dos gatos (from greeting life inc., in japan)
my mom sent me one of these cards a couple weeks ago, thinking i would like the designs, and i loved it… the style of the drawings is so sweet… and reminded me of making folded up cards, similar to these, when i was a kid. i was excited last week to find more by the same artist at marchand de legumes. i wanted to buy one of each (holiday and non-holiday cards), but i held back.
the shop owner told me that he would try to find out the name of the artist. but if anyone knows, please leave a comment!
