The Elephants are Swimming
As a Japanophile, I’m always checking for Japanese names that show up on Hollywood movie credits. So the other day, I was watching “The Jungle Book 2” and, lo and behold, out pops Ritsuko Notani, character designer extraordinaire.
Ritsuko, aka, Ritzco, draws for Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, California. Hailing from Matsuyama, Japan, she’s now stateside creating a whirlwind of characters for movies like Tinker Bell, Mulan II, Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmas and Pooh’s Grand Adventure. Spending your days tapped into your own imagination sounds like a dream job to me!
One of Ritzco’s fanciful creatures is this cute elephant donned in a striped bathing suit and swim goggles. Whether he’s about to swim the English Channel or back-float in his bathtub, he’s certainly dressed for the occasion.
Ritzco’s T-shirts are specially tailored for the feminine physique. For $25.99, you’ll get a 100% pre-shrunk cotton tee that’s a slimmer cut and shorter length than standard tees. For $31.99, you’ll get a 100% preshrunk ring-spun baby rib cotton tee that’s form-fitting and contoured to flatter the hips. Check here for color and size options.
