Secret Santa piece for Penguin-Pinpin. Her character Rigel! This is the first time I participated in a Secret Santa art exchange (though it was a small private group), and I don’t think I’ve drawn full CG fanarts for artists in AGES, so it was great~ :)
I opened a Society6 account a few weeks back and made pillows, among other things. I took advantage of their limited time free shipping to get a pillow to gift to my mother for Christmas, and it arrived just in time! :) The printing quality is nice (or so I believe, as I don’t have other printed pillows to compare qualities), and they even include a pillow insert if you choose that option, so I’m pleased so far. I can’t personally say what the quality of the other merchandise are like, but I would hope that they’re just as great.
I was commissioned to draw a book cover a few months back, and the writer was kind enough to send me a free copy. While I personally had a hiccup when I saw that the cover lost some details in print, it was still a strange feeling to hold a tangible book with a cover I drew on it… I honestly DO NOT know what this book is about (I was simply given details for the cover and drew it out), so please direct all questions about the story to Johnathan Kelly. For those who would like to purchase a copy of this book, it is available on Lulu.
Christmas tree decorations from the hotel I stayed at in Kyoto a few weeks back. I’ll upload more photos to my tumblr in time.
2012 has been a fulfilling year for me full of opportunities and illustration busy-ness, and I hope 2013 will be just as great! Hope you all had an overall good year too, and I wish you all Happy Holidays! :)
