Hi everyone!

I’ll be at Fanexpo from Aug 28 to Aug 31, table P116 selling my art in the artist alley! I’ll be sharing tables with yummy-suika, FalseDelusion and OfSkySociety. Check out their awesome art btw. 

If you are coming to this event, give me a shoutout! I’d love to meet some of you ^^ 

I’ll be selling prints, postcards, bookmarks and my 2015 calendars. It’s my first time selling stuff so I’m really excited, if it goes well I’ll probably try to get a table at Anime North as well. 

P.S. If you can’t come to Fanexpo but want to purchase something, I have some stuff up in my Storenvy, and leftovers will probably be on sale afterwards as well. 

Looking forward to seeing you there!

In search of lost time.

Anonymous sent: hello~! I just bought one of your bookmarks on your storeenvy and I am super excited for it to come in! I had a hard time choosing between your Falling Star and Ascend ones but in the end decided on Falling Star because I am such a big fan of Howl's Moving Castle! Your art is the most gorgeous I've ever seen and if I had any drawing talent I would want my art to look like your dreamworlds :) have a lovely day~! I know many people will buy your bookmarks at FanExpo!

Hello! Thank you so much for your support! ^_^ I really do hope you’ll like them!

Anonymous sent: Hi ^_^ I really like to paint and sketch and I really look up to you. Your work is lovely and as a fan I was just wondering if when you started you were already really good or you gradually became better? Also did you ever think you would get to this point? And what would you say to people who want to become better? Thanks :D

Hello! Thank you so much for your compliments and I apologize for the late reply, but I’ll answer to the best of my ability.

When you started you were already really good or you gradually became better?

No one starts out being good! It’s a lot of perseverance and finding out what works and what doesn’t. However, when I began drawing in this style I’ve already taken art classes and had basic understandings of art fundamentals. I don’t think I was good per-say, I was just better prepared to pick out colours, compositions, settings, etc. I believe that I did improve since then, but I have many weaknesses that I’m still trying to work on. I am an artist that relies more on intuition than technique, so technically there are many things I still lack.

 Did you ever think you would get to this point?

Hmm, never really thought about any finish lines. I drew because it calmed me to create these dreamworlds, places that only belonged to me and my thoughts (which is why there’s a lot of single silhouettes in many of my drawings). There wasn’t any goal in mind as it was mostly for hobby-sake, so it’s a real surprise and joy to share it with people who also admire it.

What would you say to people who want to become better?

I don’t want to tell you to keep practicing because you probably know that already. It is also not necessarily the only thing which will help you get better. You need to find what motivates you and the value you find in art. Draw because it makes you happy, and try to develop your own style. Be observant and be inspired by the things around you, there is a lot of beauty in the world we live in, which often gets overlooked. You do not need to recreate things the exact way you see them. The sky doesn’t need to be blue, the grass doesn’t need to be green, etc. 

Take inspiration from life but also add your own creativity to it. Imagination is a powerful thing and you can create anything you want to. Do not be afraid to experiment and make mistakes, success is incomplete without failure. There will be many times where you’ll feel unsatisfied that things didn’t turn out how you want but that’s how art is, constant cycle of trial and error, and it’s how you will improve. And lastly, be proud of your art, it is one of the few things that you own and differentiates you from others. 

Good luck! And sorry about this huge wall of text.
