Happy New Year!! I hope everyone had a happy holidays and a happy new year!
I want to start the new year by making a post about a gallery event that I was a part of in December. The event was held at Design Festa Gallery in Harajuku, Tokyo. Above is what our flier looked like, as well as a short description of the event.
We arrived at the gallery early for set up!
At the event, I sold a selection of my work: large prints, a wide variety of postcard sized prints including both my sketchbook and watercolor work, postcards, my zine, and original pencil drawings.
I had a lot of fun! So many people came to the event and it was quite crowded! I did an event similar to this in 2016 before I moved to Japan, and it was nice to be able to sell my work in person again.
After cleanup, me and some other artists from the event went to get okonomiyaki, a type of savory Japanese pancake (we cooked them ourselves! the ingredients are in that bowl), and celebrate our success! I would love to do an event like this in the future.
In other news, my website is now fully up to date with all the work i completed in 2018! the homepage will lead you to my illustrations…
…and my sketchbook tab is also completely updated as well! What do you think? Please let me know if you take a look!☺
In 2018, I started the year off by releasing a zine of my sketchbook work from 2017. I have completed a lot of new work, enabling me to redo part of my professional portfolio, as well as create a lot of pencil drawings. I was also able to have my first successful art show in Tokyo. I already have a few exciting things planned for 2019!
Thank you for all the support in 2018 ♡
