Workspace Update! =)

I finally put the finishing touches on my new work space... This one comes fully equipped with a pretty blue wall ;) and kodama decorations handcrafted by Cute Art on Etsy. Also featuring desk 2.0 thanks to Dad! (Computer specs haven't changed since the last photo shoot.)

The Hare King!

New personal artwork! I've been working hard lately to rearrange my time and schedule so that I can put more energy toward personal pieces. This is the first piece to come out of such efforts.

The concept came from one of my mid-morning sketchbook brainstorms over jasmine-green tea. It was the glimpse of a young boy standing in a circle of snow hares, being crowned their king. Like many of my self-motivated pieces, the image did not need to arise from a full understanding of an entire story, but rather came from trying to fully envision and illustrate the scene I had snared in my mind's eye. I'm still having fun imagining the story behind the scene...
