i see a few people from school followed me haha HI GUYS.

i decided to break the monotony that is just me reblogging beautiful art and tagging it with #insp, so…i apologise for the slight hiatus! i tend to go through extreme wet and dry spells on this blog i swear…

BUT i’m currently working on a few new button/keychain sets and sorting out my inventory for my store (opening august 1st)! i’ll be doing a giveaway then too! exciting stuff!

hsuits said: Hey I bought your Fairy Tail set at Dashcon! Have you considered maybe doing a Studio Ghibli set? Or maybe a Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle set? Your button style is adorable, I have turned my messenger bag into a pin cushion.

hey! i’ll definitely look into a studio ghibli set, i’m not into TRC and i swear my customers can tell if i’m not emotionally invested in the characters i’ve drawn lmao

thanks for the suggestion and the support!!

noragami button/keychain set!!! hell yeah

i’m opening my online store pretty soon so i figured might as well pop out some new designs~~~ leave me an ask if there’s any particular characters/fandoms you think i should do! here’s all of the ones i’ve done so far. i’m thinking of doing a giveaway too so stay tuned!!

just fucking draw. don’t compare yourself to other people, don’t stop because you drew a lot last tuesday and you haven’t visibly improved. it takes time, effort, and a lot of perseverance. besides, no matter how “bad” you think you are, there’s still gonna be someone who thinks the stuff you produce is the best goddamn thing they’ve ever seen in their entire life. the artist you were five years ago would have their mind fucking blown by the artist you are today. so just draw a fuckton, because every new thing you draw is one drawing better than you were before.
