Ugh, my heart cannot handle the cuteness of Gotamago. Artist, Lichia Liu, turns her punny designs into stationary basics, cards, calendars, and even tote bags. Each piece is hand drawn and water-coloured by Liu which adds a sincere, personal touch to all of her pieces. I guarantee you will smile at every card you read.
