recent custom made orders.

both of them were created for children t-shirts designers in the USA.
one is for original custom made illustration and the other one was a set of custom made logo design and custom made rubber stamp.
it was challenging to design something out of box! but in the end, i learned so much and i am happy to do more!

DIY: wall deco




i bought a set of wood board a while ago which i planned to use as handles of rubber stamps...but it turned out too thick to use! so i was thinking what to use for a while...then, after i made some magnets using glaze for making jewelry using pendant base...similar to resin jewelry.

here is the look...
i used:

  • vintage children book pages
  • sun glaze or you can use paper vanish
  • wood block (1in thick in any sizes you can find0
  • sun glaze or pvc glue
  • knife
  • 2mm hexagon glitter


here is how i made...

  1. cut the image as same size as the block
  2. paint the block with glue nicely
  3. paste the image on the block
  4. after it is dry, apply sun glaze slightly on the top of the image twice
  5. before it is dry, put some glitters slowly
  6. after the first coatings are dry and most glitters are glued on to the first coatings, apply a few more sun glaze nicely to be top coating
  7. dry it somewhere without dusts for some hours
  8. add hooks if you need to hang it somewhere



if you would like to purchase these ones, please contact me via etsy ($25.00 plus the international postage).

picture book recommendation: kinobori no uta by anno mitsumasa



anno mitsumasa is one of my most favourite artists in japan. his style of drawings are various and he published numerous picture books related science, travel, childhood memories, japan...
this book is titled "kinobori no uta"-  poem of tree climbing....symbolic activity as a child.
there are collective poems and essays related to his birth town tsuwano, shimane, japan. it is actually 2 hour drive from where i live and i often go there as school excursions or day trip and he used to teach at university where i live... it is a lovely hidden town surrounded by mountains where many writers and artists were born in its history.

this book is just so fun to just look! everything is written in japanese but as his generation his japanese is a bit like grandfather's and he wrote all with pencils by himself so the whole atmosphere of this book were kept private and special.

there are 2 other books in this style of story telling. if you search on amazon for "anno mitsumasa", you will find many books! for his biography, click his name on the first paragraph.
