IMG_0144.jpg IMG_0140.jpg

it's been such a fun summer.. and my birthday RULED.. I ate good hotpot and then went home to play ddr with family since my luv bought a dance pad recently ^ 3 ^

we have been SO invested in DDR lately......... and I don't see this ending anytime soon LOL in both cali and pennsylvania, we cannot stop playing...

a mall in my hometown is dying and DDR in particularly cheap to play.. I will be SO sad once it's gone kfdsjkfdsjk next year.. gif5.gif


on another note, it's been really amazing to watch my nephew grow up.. TToTT he loves to play ddr and punch-out (like me, like his uncle ...).. and chao racing/karate :-) he has been seeing us play SA2's chao garden AHAHAHA mini051.gifmini051.gif


in sonic, we have sooo many chao.. the highlight so far for me is "EggBabie", which is an egg chao that is very rare LOL.. I am also trying to raise a hero swim/power chao.. I think the shape is like a chunky bunny's and it's cute!! tumblr_b2ca2c7e530ef6fa0562c9241ba755fd_134095e1_75.giftumblr_b2ca2c7e530ef6fa0562c9241ba755fd_134095e1_75.gif

o ya I turned 28 this year!! I feel like I am at an age where I'm having a lot of fun learning different things.. I do look forward to when I can be as cool as my favorite artists and customizers are once I enter my 30s * 3 *  minicarta.gif

my mama inlaw is so kind thinking of strawberry flavor for me..

I need to keep learning new things in the meantime.. gotta prep my brain and keep practicing my current skills mini012.gif

Keyboard cleaning warrior.. (I will not say how long I haven't cleaned my own keyboard Kdfsjkjfkdsfsd my grody self)

IN OTHER NEWS there are quite a few exciting things I am very excited about.. LGTS releases next month and I've always looked forward to Halloween! 

IMG_2406.jpg IMG_860dfgfgdsf3f334.jpg
Cute cicada and beatmap creation..... tumblr_lkl5z4RA9q1qfamg6.gif 

I'm juggling two desires at the moment HMM.. tumblr_2b7374f0a0c58df81ef5f97c3deee5fa_dbf816c6_75.gif I am either considering:

tumblr_lkl6570jn71qfamg6.gif participating in a horror game jam/make a teeny horror rpgmaker game.. honestly I don't think I'll have time KDSFKJFDS, but I do at least want to raincheck it for later

tumblr_lkl6570jn71qfamg6.gif challenge myself to complete a halloween themed blythe custom before the month ends..

which will I do..?? WELP find out ^p^ I've been quite busy so my blog posts are always sparse but I'll try to update regarding this.. minicarta.gifminicarta.gif

IMG_8873 (21)
I never remember to take pix till we are in the car Lolz

I've been keeping busy with work, but I do have a few random art things to share!!


for jen EW

inspired by my friend roby's robo digital pet dogs.. I want to sculpt her someday..

ANYWAY till next time.... 173.gif


uh o I'm already updating my blog so poorly again LMAOOOO but been itching to diary my summer so far.....  tumblr_ll7xq8CAsh1qi6qow540.gif


between the release of Pocket Mirror's remaster and finishing up loose ends for Little Goody Two Shoes, my time with Astral Shift projects has wrapped up for the time being!! I can't wait to see how we move forward as a team after these titles drop. ^o^ don't tell, but it's always been a secret bucketlist goal of mine to have a game I played a larger art role in acknowledged by ManlyBadassHero.. pls happen..

I want to make something nice for celebrating the release! I've started something new, but this sketch was kinda cute too.. tumblr_9f64623492c6caaeb4e6bf821c2ce2b1_6a1355b1_75.giftumblr_9f64623492c6caaeb4e6bf821c2ce2b1_6a1355b1_75.gif

these are very old (2016), but I still like them ^ 3 ^

I've joined a new team (NDA for now) as well as contributing to a few smaller projects.. please look forward to them!! it feels good to work on stuff stylistically different from my own again.. helps me grow >:-) 173.gif

after such an onslaught of work I digitally unplugged just to travel a lil-- firstly, to FL with my mama in May!

I lov abusing photos AND my blog with little stickers... tumblr_inline_mn49l2CQbR1qz4rgp540.gif

in our short trip we went to the beach, the Pérez Art Museum, and the Frost Planetarium (amazing lil aquarium) this time around.. I also got my nails done by the very talented nail tech Annie!! I only get my nails done when I'm traveling and I am so enamored by nail art LOL

 IMG_3877 (1) IMG_3564.jpg

this was my first time getting my nails done with someone who specializes in nail art, so I wanted a theme close to my heart ^o^ rhythm games with my favorite art directions of MUKAI and Ippei Gyoubu..  tumblr_9f64623492c6caaeb4e6bf821c2ce2b1_6a1355b1_75.gif

definitely want to give her my business again next time I'm Miami bound! her office was so beautiful and chatting art/anime culture was very fun.. I'm already wondering if I should request Ib or Klonoa nails next HMMM

the process took several hours and throughout it, we marathonned anime and chatted the time away.. felt like I was just hanging with an old friend *_* good thing I don't live closer.. she's so talented I'd be a regular LMAO

IMG_4738.jpg IMG_4707.jpg
Leando Erlich's stuff made me weirdly nostalgic of my childhood.. the dimly lit nature of public laundromats and low income apartment building living in the 2000s LOL.. also aquarium pix placeholder

I saw Yayoi Kusama's "Love is Calling"!! I'm not great at articulating my thoughts for that kind of experience but I was happy.. :-) I've always enjoyed her work after being introduced to it via one of my favorite musicians Towa Tei 

gawd this was sooo embarrassing LMAOOOO I was so dazzled by the exhibit, I wasn't paying attention when exiting and ran into a plexiglass wall < / 3 clumsy ppl do not mix well with art galleries, Yes yes *Notes*..

my second favorite exhibition there was Leandro Erlich's "Liminal".. his changing room reminded me a lot of the M.C.Escher esque optical illusions of continuation I love in Klonoa 2's Maze of Memories! 

 Optimized-IMG_47339.jpg IMG_38385.jpg
that eggs benedict had me in a headlock.. SOOOO GOOD Wth gif5.gif

all in all very fun vacation with my mama ^_^ I'm happy she can catch a break from life too! in general I think we are turning Miami into a routine LOL.. FL every couple of years (we have family in a different part too so it kinda works out)

gurls-only sea getaway.. laco.giflaco.gifmini012.gifmini012.giftumblr_inline_p7i55rsv0A1rhwzwl_75sq (1)tumblr_inline_p7i55rnpzp1rhwzwl_75sq (2)tumblr_inline_mn49krbN7b1qz4rgp540.gif

so much moar to say but I'll have to resume in a later blog cos I wrote enough for now KSDFKJSFD.. next on my blog to do list: talk abt my blythes > update on personal projects > CA/PA adventures w/ myn > ... let's see if I can remember to tho < / 3

unrelated but IMPORTANT.. jen and her partner have plans to move to the DMV area for job prospects and we've been geeking to each other about how exciting it is.. the idea of hanging out with my best friend more than once every several years is AMAZING.. O_O i h8 her tho don't tell her I'm very happy--

IMG_4737.jpg IMG_4617.jpg
I liked the dichotomy in my airport restroom selfie: my shirt print vs pre-boarding a flight xDDDDDD Lolz.. unrelated current favorite thing lately are my panshel ceramic mugs.. they came with cute lil stirring spoons bullet_heartflash.gif

NOW THAT I'M HOME; I have so much to catch up on LMAOO here's some personal WIPs I left on.. I'm trying to finish by the end of the month so I can resume personal projects >_> wish me LUCK minicarta.gif

HAPPY NEW YEARS!!!! 2023 mini-166.gifmini-166.gifmini-166.giftumblr_lm6pmqVYjq1qfoi4t540.gifstarp.gifstar.gifluv.gif

this is a bit dramatic but I've been waiting years for this zodiac year.. this is one of my favorite character designs I drew as a kid!! I thought it was all that back then LOL

this is my 2011 artwork of her.. the animation
still looks nice ^p^ 16 y/o me did good-- luv.gif

I created a resolution list with my s/o >:-) my first since 2017 bc I've been so busy, kinda pushed a lot of personal endeavors to the side @_@ 

resolution lists are never a be all end all guide to go by BUT it's a nice feeling to make one, especially when u accidentally mark off things when reflecting a year later.. LETS GET BACK TO IT-- I'll share it in more detail in my next blog update cus I feel like talking about my holiday ^Q^

charlotte airport had such a pretty holiday decoration O_O I wish airports weren't so busy and expensive around the holidays bc I wonder what other airport layovers have cute decorations like this.. 

spent the holidays with my luv and his family this winter for the first time since COVID LOL and it was a sweet time! I'm always a little overwhelmed at the kindness I'm shown during my visits.. I'M GRATEFUL tumblr_inline_moxnwpfr8f1qz4rgp540.giftumblr_inline_moxnwpfr8f1qz4rgp540.gif

only thing is I cry too easily from sentimentality and it's kinda annoying.. I can't help it of course ^p^;;; o well

went to NYC again this weekend LOL and attended a day of ANYC!! tumblr_8987ca17758525479a11c060d78adfa7_99db68f7_250.gif

synter waited in line for 20 minutes w/ me to get a pikachu cotton candy (ur a real one) luv.gifluv.gif

it was actually the first con I've gone to since COVID and the last con I walked around since 2015 maybe O_O I feel like cons are only worth a day of going unless you're selling art.. (I personally can't justify the cost AHAHA).. wynter and I chilled in artist alley all day!!! we were shocked at how many NEW up&coming artists were selling wtf it's incredible??

also the amount of regret I have for not impulse buying that MOTHER2 cover album... just LISTEN to this

also this was a blast to the past cus the last time I walked around a con without tabling, it was with wynter??? ew

rad was extremely good at taking piccies of cute gang moments..... *takes notes* tumblr_m3xtm3BvH51rodiav540.giftumblr_m3xtm3BvH51rodiav540.gif

I met with a very special group of art homies after a kabillion calls with them over the last 2 years.. we did a bunch but my highlight was going to chinatown to check out my friend's store (happy99)!! it was really epic how many intimately sweet vintage toys they had there... after that we walked around a very empty mall (elizabeth center) that had so much cute knickknacks in it ^Q^ paradise.. lastly jj's giftshop was my favorite place ever, so grateful it was recommended to me!

oxnard at ANYC and snoozer @ friends store.. signs for me to replay gba hamtaro games

one of my best and oldest online friends kiana hosted me.. it's always so nice to reflect on old awoldays with her and catch up w/ some drinks.. I feel so comfortable and happy around her every time we hang out TT_TT I want just a piece of her radiance someday AHAHA
me kiana and new friend on subway as I try to contain my spewing (I did pretty good tbh)

a realization I had during this trip is that even when I'm drunk, I'm sometimes a rly guarded person.. maybe a lot chattier, but my social anxiety makes it about the safest things somehow LMAO-- kiana's friend was extremely precious company, so when I felt like I started to ramble too much I zipped it ^p^;; still tho, I said a lot more vulnerable things than I usually would with new company and she listened and listened.. I hope I can drink with her again someday!! I gotta throw that shield away..

me and anna talked about hamsters voring their newborns and blogging! gal stuff

last day I was there was spent playing ddr, visiting my first neko cafe, meeting new kind friends, & eating gud star.gif

when in doubt iosys it out (my fav touhou album arts btw) tumblr_lkl65c58Ps1qfamg6540.gif

I'm very grateful for all of my friends for taking the time of day to spend it with me!! always embarrassed at how excited I get about this kind of stuff, but I think my travel/ldr friend experiences are extremely quality over quantity.. my closest friends are all so far away, and I am not rich with lots of free time LOL-- but when I can manage to, it's a memory I carry for LIFE ugh

on a side note I'm thinking about how memorably my friends dressed and I can't get it out of my mind o.o grey jeans w/ the slickest silhouette, a kitschy vintage coke-a-cola jacket, cute powdery snow boots.. but maybe the most special of it all is that rune was wearing a bunny hairclip I sent her in penpal mail some time ago! thinking about it makes me kinda emotional..

ya that was fun tumblr_lkl64v9iji1qfamg6.pngtumblr_lkl64v9iji1qfamg6.png
