I started Tumblr in September 2009 and I told myself, “I should post my art a lot and can’t wait to meet wonderful artist on tumblr”
If it wasn’t for my followers reblogging my (lame) chalk drawing during my senior year, I would be on deviantart being all weeaboo lol
I want to thank my followers for sticking up with me (for three years WOW) and plus meeting with amazing artist/friends like Christine, my hubby/Emi/Rii/R2D2 and my school friend(s) who I met through tumblr. ALSO thank you for listening to my stupid ass rants on tumblr.
I believe that Tumblr changed my life so much, not just my artist views but as myself. Tumblr taught me what’s right or wrong and connecting with people who has the same interest. Two days ago(?) I had to explain my dark/horrible past (I still get scared talking about it) but I’m thankful that you guys understand that my goal is not just to draw wonder/eye-candy greepy/dark arts…my goal is to create a wonderful art that will make the viewers understand why I’m drawing.
To say thank you for +4,000 followers AND to celebrate my 3 years on Tumblr I decided that now is the time to announce my very first color zines.
I’ve been working on this project last year (since making my own art book is my passion since I don’t get any invites or features and such) and I believe that working on this project helped me so much like that one time talking to myself if I wanted to go into entertainment art track at ACCD (but decided to go indo Illustration Design and I’m very happy with my track choice)
The title of this book is called “MUSIC”. I LOVE music. without music, I can’t draw, eat, or sleep. Music is my soul (and body). This colored zines includes full colored art inspired by my goddess (and her band) SHIINA RINGO and other artists like PERFUME and YUKI.
I promise you, I’ll finish this book by this upcoming spring and I will have this on sale on my birthday.
(and once again THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT/LOVE FOR 3 YEARS)
