A book about all the tiny happy moments in Okinawa, written and illustrated by Desmond Liang - the co-founder of Oki Social.
Being stressed out about the future of his business in the middle of 2018, Desmond started drawing random moments in his daily life as stress relief. He shared a few of his drawings online and it was a hit. Fans started telling him what makes them happy about living in Okinawa and asked if their experiences can be included in the drawings.
In September 2018, the first ten Happiness In Okinawa Is… drawings were turned into postcards. They sold out in two weeks and ideas and requests flooded his inbox. After the release of the fourth volume, Desmond’s business was back on track and he decided to draw 365 happy moments in Okinawa as a gift to the people who supported him in his journey to recovery.
This book conveys an important message - while we generally feel less happy and even stressed after we become adults, what makes us happy has never changed. The purpose of this book is to help the reader realize how easy it is to feel happy in their daily life. Happiness does not have to be complicated.
