Message from Yuichi Yokoyama
The design of the mug is from a cartoon called 土木⑤, which was published 20 years ago in a magazine called “広告” and was about modern architecture, and the reason why it is horizontal is unknown at the time the magazine was published. I wouldn't do such a thing nowadays, but I named the characters and included an introduction to the characters. The product name “ボコ/Boko", taken from an onomatopoeia in the story.
