About Tako Knows
Tako is an octopus who knows how precious life is and wants to live it to its fullest. He creates art and music and food and shares it all with the residents of the underwater world of Tako City. There is nothing Tako wouldn't do for his friends. From the mind of internationally acclaimed Japanese artist Naoshi, whose distinctive characters and original style are recognized around the world, Tako Knows is a candy-colored, pop, fantasy world inspired by manga comics. Created using shiny colorful sand called Sunae, Tako teaches us to enjoy the present and fill our days with humor and joy. For adult fans of Japanese cuteness culture called Kawaii (think Hello Kitty and Pikachu), K-Pop, art lovers, crafters, kids, kids at heart, and anyone who can appreciate a singular artistic vision, Tako Knows is a unforgettable visual feast that readers will revisit for years to come.
