Life is crazy.

Hey guys! I have a bunch of updates. Some are just life stuff. Others are art stuff.

First off, I have some of my work published in a book!

I had a friend of the family commission me to do some of the interior art for his short story and first published work. I mostly drew a variety of props and objects. You can check out and support this book here!


I have gotten  a kitten! His name is Nero, and he is my companion to help me from getting overly lonely or anxious from working at home alone all the time. He is a flamepoint siamese mix and the most adorable snugglebug ever.


I am moving at the end of the year! They are turning my apartment into vacation housing, so me and my husband are being forced to move. uwu My hope is to get a place where I can have an actual, legitimate, art room instead of working in my bedroom all the time. My goal from there is to actually start recording videos of my process and posting them to Youtube.

Still, this is going to be very stressful as the move will have to happen at the same time as three conventions (!!!) So I am a little stressed.

I will be holding an art sale on my Facebook to help clear things out and prepare for the move. SO look forward to that.


I have an Etsy now! Go ahead and check out my originals and art dolls there:


I also am posting on Instagram! If you want to see my WIPs and stuff, check them out there:…

The plan right now is for me to be part of a Mori Girl photoshoot towards the end of October. Dates are still up in the air but I would love to post those when it happens!


As always, thank you so much for your support! I have a lot going on, and I'm doing a lot of reevaluating and planning for the future with everything that's coming up. I also have a big announcement that will come hopefully by January. I will keep you posted!

If you wish to continue to support me, please consider buying something from my Etsy, Redbubble, or even just supporting me on Patreon!

Heya, maybe you'd be interested in my OCs contest to win a tablet? ^^…

Hmm, I do admit I was skeptical to have someone I don't recognize randomly comment on my page advertising something that requires me to make art for you. Though upon research, it seems legitimate and I am impressed by your list of prizes and your art.

Though I DO have a question, since this advert came completely from left field, how in the world did you find my work? You are not one of my watchers, and I'm not part of any of the groups you are in it seems.

I'm mildly interested, but considering I am not acquainted with you, have never seen a comment from you before, or seen your artwork before now, this is not a wonderful first impression. Please understand how I am hesitant to join in on something when the first thing I see from you is an advertisement.

I am sorry for such first thoughts about me of course, but I'm just trying to invite people and advertising is not the priority for me at all. Notes always seem too serious and personal while comments under the works end up really as an annoying adverts :/ So I thought that profile pages are less suspicious for invitation ^^

I make researches for fantasy related artworks, and those that look beautiful in my oppinion, I invite the authors.

Either way, it is up to you whether to join or not ^^
