Just curious to see where my visitors came from :D
I put it up a little late though XD


What kind of artist do you see me as? :) 

21 deviants said An Improving Artist - Your talent is obvious, but it is not perfected. There are many things you can fix about your work, but that doesn't mean you aren't wonderful already~
11 deviants said An "Idol" Artist - You are an artist I look up to, get inspiration from, and sometimes I wish I had your talent.
7 deviants said A Normal Artist - You are a typical, everyday artist who wants to do their best and I have neutral feelings about you as a person~
3 deviants said A Compassionate, Caring Artist - You are an artist who does what they can to help other people, even if it means putting down everything you're working on to help someone in need. Your art is great, but your heart is greater~
1 deviant said A "People's" Artist - You do what everyone WANTS you to do. You tend to work more on things everyone else wants than what you want to. If the community doesn't like it, neither do you.


I love you! by AyumiNazu
I love you!
EDIT: Here are some more sketches I did of my OCs, Ayu and Ken.
I almost forgot to submit them even though they were done around the same time last month (ahaha *shot*) 
So I decided to submit all 3 as 1 deviation. I hope you like them ^_^


It's too late to start inktober isn't it? haha
After seeing so many beautiful inktober artworks, I really wanted to draw something in ink too!
Didn't have a lot of time on my hands, so here is a quick sketch for now! 
It was really fun to do, I'll be sure to upload another one soon :)
(Inktober is a project where you draw something in ink everyday in the month of October.)

This sketch was inspired by a song called "See You in My Dreams" by Linus' Blanket. 
The characters featured are my OCs: Ken Masakazu and Ayumi Nazu (Yes, I named my DA user after my OC.)
I've wanted to tell their story for a long time, but I'll leave that for another day ^_^ 

Have fun drawing! :)

Friend by AyumiNazu
I just came back from a London and Paris trip!
They were very inspiring cities and I had a lot of fun with my trip mates! ^_^

This is a sketch I did on the train from London to Paris of my friend Peony.
It is inspired by something that really happened after we had high-tea in Kensington Palace's Orangery.
The birds were friendly there, but I was attacked by a squirrel D: I'm ok though, no worries.

Anyways, I'm glad to be back home :)

Otakuthon 2014 Report

Journal Entry: Tue Aug 26, 2014, 7:39 AM

Otakuthon Report

Otakuthon has come to an end!

First of all, BIG SHOUTOUT to my friend Mizuetani for being a great helper at the convention! Thanks to her I didn’t need to stay up till 4am punching buttons ; w ;

This year was my first year doing regular artist alley at Otakuthon. I got to have a table next to my friends Shi-Yin and Mikanpen which was fun :dummy: I was also placed next to a friendly artist from the US, shout out to CanisPanthera!

The regular artist tables felt a lot smaller than the premium ones. Please excuse how crowded my table was lol >w<” Maybe I should stop making so many different products and just focus on buttons and prints…?

Here’s a pic for those who couldn’t come:

Thanks to everyone who stopped by my table and said hi! I appreciate it :heart:

Highlights of the Convention

:bulletwhite:Meeting people!
I was extremely happy to see some of my followers from DA!
Thank you Shujun for coming to my table again! I really appreciate the support :heart:
Also thank you to Ponyta for dropping by, it was a pleasure meeting you for the first time, you are so cute and polite ^_^
If any more of you came by, please let me know! I wouldn’t know who you were unless you mentioned your name when you were at my booth! XD

Also a big thank you to my friends who stopped by to say hi and bought something, I was really happy to see you all again, even if only for a short moment!

:bulletwhite:Starting Steampunk
I was always interested in the steampunk style, but always just admired it from far. This year, I met an extremely lovely steampunk artist, Lady Lilleigh who did an art trade with me. I was over the top happy and so was her daughter when she saw the prints and buttons I gave her! It was a very joyful moment for all of us ^_^ Hopefully I can put together something nice with the accessory she gave me for next year’s convention! Check out her site for awesome steampunk items :heart:

When I was at my table, sometimes people would compliment my artworks. It made me really happy even if they weren’t able to buy anything. After ending school, I spend a lot of time just drawing on my own so it felt very nostalgic to hear people’s feedback live again. Thank you very much for supporting me in what I love doing! The same goes for all of you who leave comments and critiques on my art! I really appreciate it! ^///^

Conventions are always so busy, I definitely wanted to rest after, but since I had to go to work today and tomorrow, I’ll have to hang in there for a little longer XD Next year I’m aiming to attend Anime North! Not sure if I’ll be going for fun or as an artist yet. If you’ve been to Anime North, please let me know what the artist area is like :dance:

Once again, many thanks to all of you who support my art.
It means so much to me :heart:

See you next year :D

Awesome people from Otakuthon:

Here is a photo of my booth at Otakuthon 2014!
On your left, wearing a pink squid hat is my friend Mizuetani and I'm the girl with the flower crown on the right :)

Special thanks to my mother who always helps me so much with setting up this display! Heart
It wasn't easy since the regular artist tables are smaller than the premium artist ones >w<"

I think this is the year I sold the most amount of different types of products from posters and buttons to tote bags, t-shirts and plushies!

Did you hhave a blast at this year's convention? :D Let me know!
