Yummy scrumptious ice cream pattern design for Auzou project!

I love illustrate and design patterns because it’s fun and quick and relaxing process. For products side of business, patterns are great because one pattern can be adopted into so many different products😌❤️.

Kawaii sushi pattern!

We are very busy to prepare for the Hyper Japan @hyperjapanofficial this weekend! Woohoo!! This is the first time I joined a 3 days market/fair event and I can’t wait to meet the lovely folks who is going to Hyper Japan! ❤️

Please don’t copy and share or even use this pattern without any permission. I created this super fun pattern for French publisher Auzou so if you use this pattern without any permission their legal team will come after you. Not me, I’m just an insignificant independent artist 😂.

Just when you thought things is not going to be the worsts…this has happened today 😔

@etsy is allowing AI generated content selling on Etsy.

Sellers “sourced” and “handpicked” that part for me sounds like they are allowing people selling goods they found on SHEIN and Temu now.

I know there are even more people are boycotting Etsy now after this announcement. May I just ask you to shop directly from the real handmade creators’ websites or their Etsy shop? We are still here but just buried by tons of AI copyright infringement goods or Temu/shein products 😅.

Another market finish today but sadly the weather is so awful! Two markets in a row the weather is awful! I think it’s the universe telling I need to focus on something else for a while. 😅 Thank you so much for supporting my small business. You guys are the best!

Working in new sticker sheet this morning for a lovely lady/customer. I only realize I haven’t make any new sticker sheet for such a long time. 😅 I need a break from my commission work and focus on myself for a while soon.

July Market Dates Announcement

If you noticed, I’m cutting down trading in the market this year.

There are a few reasons…

1. I’m swamped with my commission projects. I have deadlines to January 2025 and I believe I will pick up more commission projects later this year. I’m really happy about this as there are so many projects I’m working on that I’m extremely excited about. There are so many of my dream clients ticked off from my list. I’m extremely thankful for all my clients’ love, support and trust.
2. I want to spend some time doing something I love. For example, I would like to keep my time to create more maps and collections. This is something I LOVE to do. Of course, I love to trade in the market and meet people but I want to join the markets that suit me and spend more to do what I love.
3. London markets are over-saturated. Yes, if you live in London, you will notice many markets at the moment. Every weekend you can see at least 2,3,4..etc craft fairs and makers’ markets.
4. I also started to notice there are some “makers markets” allowing wholesale sellers or traders to sell copyright infringement goods in their craft fair and makers market. So I have decided to not do those markets anymore. This is a sad situation as we shouldn’t allow things like this in the makers markets or craft fair.

Long story short, here are some updates and I will still try to trade in some markets when I can in the future. The main reason for this change really is I’m too busy and I have too many projects juggling at the moment and I miss my creative freedom. 😀

I have a plan to create a new “I LOVE Food” collection > “I Love Bentos” postcards and stickers/sticker sheet because I just love seeing those cute bentos 🍱!

As a mum I used to imaging myself to make cute bento for my daughter when she was little but that dream was shutting down by her as she told me “Mum, please don’t do that. I will feel embarrassed.” So my bento mum dream haven’t even started already shut down by her 😆.

It’s ok! I can draw bentos 🍱 for you now. 😉❤️

New die-cut postcard collection!
Kawaii food!
I illustrated “I LOVE Japanese food” collection before and when I trade in the market, customers often tell me how much they wish there are cute faces on Raman and Udon noodle. So I listen and create this super cute Japanese food collection. Which one is your favorite?
