About the Author

The artists Peng and Hu first discovered the fantastical phenomenon of Hirameki when they saw a cow with a splotch that looked just like a famous filmstar. They quickly realized that even the tiniest blot could be easily turned into something amazing. Hirameki has become a fabulous art form for everybody: even the most inexperienced doodlers can produce hundreds of sensational scribbles. Peng and Hu’s passion for collecting blots and dots of all kinds has taken over their lives!
