etsy + website

First thing's first!
My online store is now open~! Find it at: www.mikisato.etsy.com!!
It's not much right now, but I hope to fill it up with stuff as the year goes on :)
Right now, I'm itching to try polymer clay for 3D sculptures and needle felting!


And yet another thing!
I've put up a section called "Personal" on my website.
I decided to have it as a place to put illustrations that I wanted separate from my other works.

And that's all for today :)

terrible yellow eyes

wild rumpus
(4.25" x 6")

This is my submission for the Terrible Yellow Eyes project organized by Cory Godbey for the popular children's book "Where the Wild Things Are" by Maurice Sendak!
I'm very thankful that he invited me to join in, even though it took me quite a while to get to it.

The image ended up being a lot more elaborate than I originally planned, so my whole desk was practically filled with tiny paper bits.

PIN4 exhibit and layout

I subtly changed the title image of this blog! Rounded edges, yay!

Also on a more interesting note,
I'll be participating in a group show at Gallery Nucleus this coming December for their Power in Numbers (PIN) show!
It's not for a while, but I thought I should write about it :)
I don't know what I'll be doing for it yet, but it'll be fun!

autumn alpaca

Autumn is here
(5.75" x 7.75")

Alpacas!
It feels like it's been a while since I depicted a nonsensical, laid back scene that doesn't involve a lot of concept.
It's also been a while since I did an illustration this big...

workspace

Why hello there! It feels like it's been a while. It's also already October! Time flies

I actually received an email a week ago for an illustration job for a annual University magazine (Canadian University Report/GlobeCampus) that's run by Globe and Mail! So I've been working on that for the past week or so.
I can't post the illustration yet, but the magazine comes out October 22nd :D
I'll make sure to post some shots of the magazine when it comes out~


Also,At the ShareSomeCandy blog, they've been recently doing a series called Workspaces and was asked to contribute, which I gladly did :). My desk is nothing special, small, and is always in a state of organized chaos, but if you'd like to take a look, check it out.
