Hokkaido's Awkward Mascot

In the US, each state has its own state motto and flower and bird.  The states don’t each have their own cartoon character though, like the prefectures in Japan do.  I recently learned about Hokkaido’s mascot.

You can read the whole story (and see the whole picture) and find out what this character is here.

I finished outlining the water with silver twist and the branch with copper twist and have just begun outlining leaves with the gold twist.

I have a real 'makkori' in a bottle! It was brought back from Hokkaido by a student of mine. So now I know what it REALLY is, ha, ha!
Your kingfisher is living in a beautiful environment. Any 'mokkori' in the pond?
