Update & Illustration

I’m alive! You may have noticed I un-intentionally put the blog on a mini hiatus – whoops. The truth is, I was so burnt out from doing a million things that I just had to stop, you know? So I did. And it was exactly what I needed.

So I’m updating the blog to let you guys know that yes, I’m still here! I already have a few posts queued up with new inspiration and new cosplays, so hopefully I’ll get back into a semi-regular posting schedule.

In the meantime, here’s the only thing I really completed in the past few months, just a little girl in her scarf (yes the original sketch was done when there was about 5 feet of snow on the ground ^^)

Product & Print | 075

I started this post by saying “happy tuesday!” but is there really anyone jumping for joy that it’s a tuesday out there? I am jumping for joy that I got around to making a new product & print post.

Product & Print

To be honest, I’m not entirely sure why I chose what I did today…there is no way I will ever be able to afford this giant 4′ dunny ($4,999.99), but I had to feature it. Can you even imagine this in your house? 4′ of solid, bright red fiberglass in the shape of the iconic dunny. Amazing. What a finale to any dunny collection.

A bit more affordable, however, this this affetto sticker by artist Rose, aka barachan. It’s so darn cute, I want 10 of these to stick on everything I own. I know it’s not technically a print, but oh well.

With this $5,000 dunny I shared today, I have to know, are there any absolutely ridiculous items that you will probably never purchase but think are great?

Happy Friday!

The dark, intricate details of this Hommage a Morris poster by Boglárka Nádi are mesmerizing to look at. I wish I could do lettering like that!

I love the costumey, whimsical Honor Pre-Fall 2012 collection. I would like to get back into my fashion illustration project, and I’m thinking this may be a good place to start.

I need to stop myself from going on pinterest so much. Because I always find such pretty recipes that make my stomach rumble. baked apple donuts, anyone?

This weekend I plan to re-do my Alice Madness costume – it’s kind of perfect to wear for halloween ;) What are you dressing up as this year?

Product & Print | 074

It’s time for another Product & Print! I have to say, I had a lot of fun with this week’s post. And also now I’m craving pocky!

Product & Print

The ‘product’ portion of today’s post isn’t so much a project, rather, a recipe! Homemade pocky! Mmmm. Pocky is one of those items I never crave, but always want if I see a box. I love that I could make them right at home!

Of course, I chose this mahou shoujo print set of Kyoko Sakura eating pocky, her signature. She’s from the show Madoka Magica, which I highly recommend.

Have you seen Madoka Magica? The episodes are on Netflix, and I finished the season in less than a week. Of course, I have plans next year to cosplay as Kyoko Sakura ;)
