Lily Says Hello

This post is brought to you by a girl and her dog.

Silly Lily. Her ears are always down in front of the cameras. They freak her out. 

OH! And I got new hair.

It is asymmetrical and shorter than it's been in years and I. LOVE. IT. The pretty aqua colored bow was purchased in Harajuku. I wish I had bought all the different colors. : ( 

I swear I am still drawing!

But it's mostly commissions. I don't have much time these days for my own "personal" art - but I am NOT complaining - God is good and I am blessed to be able to do so many drawings for so many amazing people! I am humbled that people actually enjoy my art and love it enough to put it in their homes!

A lot of my current works are gifts for others, so I'll have to wait until they have been given to post them, but I am so excited to share them with you!

In the meantime, here is an angel I did for my grandmother.
Bedtime for me!

Not Dead!

Oh my goodness. Welcome to another addition of "Amy's not dead just really bad at updating her blog."

My apologies.

If I had it my way, I would blog all day. I would keep a full inventory in my etsy shop. I would always have ink in my printer. I would live in Japan. But alas, I don't have it my way.

But that's okay! Because I still have it pretty darn great!

Instead I bring you pictures of the greatest 2 weeks of my life! 

My trip to Tokyo, Japan!

I ate onigiri to my heart's content. I tasted the finest tempura and udon. I actually got to use my Japanese. I geeked out over all of the celebrities/tv shows/music I recognized. I actually got to buy an Ayumi Hamasaki cd in a STORE and not online. I went to HARAJUKU and bought a pretty bow at a gothic lolita store. I hiked Mt. Takao. I visited the Asakusa shrine. I was in heaven.

It was an incredibly inspiring trip, artistically, and I cannot wait to finally sit down and draw some new art!! 

I am currently working on re-opening my art school. More on that later!
