I JUST ADDED A TON OF NEW DESIGNS, SO:

7/18~7/24: Buy two sets, get one FREE! With free shipping to boot!
Check out with 2 (or more) prints in your cart, and write the one you’d like free in the “note to seller” box. It’s scaleable, too! So, if you buy 4 sets, you get 2 sets free. Buy 6 sets and get 3 free, et al!
Oh, and if you share this post and order something, mention that and I’ll throw in a little something extra! 😉

Uh, so… this is what I’ve been up to. I wanted to make a big announcement, so thanks for being patient while I got everything ready! In a month or so, I’ll add new prints to the store, maybe starting a trend or an empire. I really want to see everyone making cool gallery walls with my art! Ahhhh!

But right now, I need down time on digital drawing. I’ll just be picking up new prints, and packaging and shipping them (oh my) this week. I chose a new local printer that I LOVE. But yeah.., I’ve been computering so much that I’m getting migraines. That means that I can get back to comicking, though. Somehow, comics don’t hurt my eyes nearly as much.

Oh yeah, and play a bit of Pokemon, too. 😉 And maybe do some fun stuff while I’m at it. Walking tours of Honolulu would be really cool, wouldn’t they?

I’ll check in again soon, and in the meantime— order some prints! 😀

Morning, minna! I’m on this kick right now where I’m trying to get back to who I used to be, but with improvements… Aka, bring back my old excitement about life but mix it with a much newer sense of wisdom and compassion. That sounds so deep! Anyways, I think that in my past I was more callous than I am now. Okay, I know that I was. Is that one of those “trappings of youth” things? That you’re more self-obsessed the younger you are? Now I acknowledge it if I know that I’ve hurt someone, and make good on it. Then I go back to trying to spread sunshine and happiness. If only that could be my full time job, to make people happy. :3

Anyway! Part of this revolution was looking into what anime were coming out this summer. I used to do that religiously, but I haven’t been watching much anime, and even with TV I’ve only been following a few series that rotate out over the course of the year. Right now, I’m watching Pretty Little Liars faithfully, of course (have been since the beginning), Reign, and America’s Got Talent, umm… and I think that’s it for what is currently on. Game of Thrones just ended another season, but they killed off one of my favorite characters (Margaery! *cries forever*), so I’m mad about that and let’s not talk about it…. Continue Reading »

Ah, the fangirl life!

Today, I had a TOTAL fangirl moment. ^^;;;;; I seriously thought that, ‘hey, Tenimyu is in less than 2 weeks’ and completely freaked. I mean, the exciting kind where I start dancing around alone! AAAAAAAH, Tenimyu!!! ♥ Tenimyu!! So gay!!!! ♥

That preeeeetty much sums up my life back then. I was living the fangirl life, and it was probably the best time of my life ::sings I had a dream so big and loud, I jumped so high I touched the clouds:: Wait, I need mood music for this post!  Continue Reading »

Note: Apparently, this has been in  my queue for almost two years and it was never published! I’m so sorry! Enjoy 🙂

O hisashiburi desu ne! (It’s been a while, hasn’t it!) I realized that it’s been a while since I’ve continued the story about my first crazy year in Japan. There’s still quite a bit to say!

It wasn’t long after I moved into my new apartment in Shinjuku before something else exciting happened to me. Do you remember how the father of one of the members of the NaB’s (Kenn’s band) approached my friends and I after a concert and started chatting with us? Well, it turns out that this was a friendship waiting to blossom.. or something like that. 🙂

The family (of member Karl, the guitarist) lived in Kamakura, which is a really famous sightseeing spot south of Tokyo, and one day, Mr. K invited my friends and I to come and see the area and spend the day with his family. A guided tour by a local family… and with one of the NaB’s?! How could we refuse?!

So, on July 24th, Eda, Aloni, Ale, and I boarded the train for Kamakura!  Continue Reading »

I want to catch you all up, so that I can move on and get over this slump… I mean, this depression. It has hit me really, really hard the first part of this year, but I’m DETERMINED to get over it. You should see my face. It’s scary.

In January, my bike was stolen. So, I had to buy a new bike, but it is just GORGEOUS and has speeds, and I keep it inside now so as to prevent the Locke Lamoras of the world from appropriating it. Locke is cool, but I am not rich. I get a lot of compliments on it, so maybe I should thank whatever crummy thief nabbed it for my newfound stylishness. Also, the old one had a flat tire that I hadn’t yet repaired, so the joke is sort of on them… Um, kind of.

Here is my new prettymachine:

So, in the beginning of December when Thuy was caught up in the hype and excitement of the new Star Wars movie, she had what sounded like an insane idea to purchase a well-made lightsaber. I’m more of a Trekkie, and Star Wars is something that I also grew up watching, but it doesn’t mean the same things to me. It didn’t shape who I am in the way that Star Trek did. I wouldn’t be the same person without it. Anyways, I digress. Savariben!

She ended up ordering two lightsabers from a company called Ultrasabers, and her brother ordered two as well (one for his girlfriend and one for himself. Thuy’s were both for her, uh…).

Honestly? I thought that it was kind of dumb to pay three hundred dollars for a lightsaber, especially when you weren’t a big fan or anything (Which she and I are not. Now, a Batleth on the other hand… I had been eyeing one for a while, but the price and the leather grip was keeping me from buying it. Why leather? I doubt that they even have cows on Klingon!). However, when the sabers came in a few weeks later, both me and Justin put in orders later that same night! I have an orange one for sparring now, and a purple one because, purple. I should have made the sparring one purple, but I didn’t know that I would use it for anything but photos at the time.

Time passed, and near the end of the month, Thuy found out that a Parkour gym down by the waterfront was starting Lightsaber classes in January. Uhh.. lame or cool? I wasn’t sure.

But, I mean, I’d sign up for Vulcan language lessons in a heartbeat, so why not? I signed up with Justin and Thuy. I hardly ever go along with the flow, but I am really glad that I did!

I am now a proud member of Hawaii Saber Academy.

And I am eating my words, and some of my dignity, but it is SO MUCH FUN THAT I DON’T CARE! Omg, I am letting my inner child out, and I could not be having more fun! I really wish that there was a Star Trek equivalent, but Trek is fundamentally about peace and acceptance, so that might not roll over so well.. I don’t know. Hmm..

Yeah, anyways, I am eating my words. I love the class so freaking much that I just can’t help but practice outside every night, and sometimes during the day. It’s mostly just learning poses and sequences right now, but the theatrics? They are so beautiful, and that glowing-light aesthetic is right up my alley! <3 <3 <3

I only brought my phone with me, so the pictures that I took aren’t as high-quality as I’d otherwise like, but I might try some long exposures another time. In the meantime, have this, and then look up to see if there are any classes in your area!  Continue Reading »

On Sunday, I went out with my girlfriend, roommate, and a few other friends to Waimea Bay on the North Shore.

Why? To go bouldering!

The gym down my street from our apartment is a bouldering gym, and Justin (le roommate) is a huge fan so Thuy started going, and then I started going, and we made more friends who also go (including James, who was a friend of mine during college but just moved to Honolulu too!). So, a few of us decided that we needed a getaway and went to try out doing this whole climbing thing outside!

I mostly worked on my photography skills, because I’m not a very strong climber, but I had a great time anyways! It’s winter, so it’s warm but not hot, and the waves were so strong that swimming wasn’t allowed! Not that that stopped a lot of people.

Want to see the photos that I took? Well, click here: Continue Reading »
