Rehn Shiatsu is a Shiatsu massage parlour housed in a dojo and run by Naja Rehn. Naja needed a logo and she also wanted a cartoony character in a Japanese environment. I sketched a bit and we landed on a concept of the having a character who half looks like Naja and half like a kokeshi doll. Instead of showing half-clothed people getting massages, I drew animals. As Naja said, "we all feel like tired bears sometimes".
