Meet Ikootan, the Bon Vivant!

by lorendoolittle

Meet Ikootan!

Meet Ikootan:  Bon vivant*, dreamer, philosopher, adventurer and lover of all things joyful!

*A bon vivant is someone, in this case a fluffy black bird, who enjoys the good things in life.


Do you love  gardening, or picking flowers for a bouquet, or walking through a meadow with wildflowers?


Ikootan travels and is inspired to photograph the scene.

Felix Fu is the artist and designer behind Felix Doolittle (more on how the Doolittle portion of the name came around on another post). He created Ikootan – which means, fun to follow – as an alter ego (maybe?), or just to tap into the things that make life all the more enjoyable (most likely!)!


Of course Ikootan always writes his friends and family!

 All the Hello! Folded Note Cards come boxed with a rainbow themed spine – we chose yellows for the Ikootan themed ones because it’s such a sunny color.
