Since I was a kid, I've always loved cute things and it's been my dream for a long time to be able to share this side of me with similar minds. During March 2022, I became so tired of the projects I was doing - it was more on the traditional, formal side of art and design. It was time for a much overdue change.
One inspirational shower later, I came up with an idea that combined so many of my old interests: kawaii/chibi art, adventure video games, writing stories and characters. I then realised, that I still feel so connected to these today, I haven't felt so consistantly motivated to create in years. Somewhere along the way, I had just gotten caught up in trying to be 'an adult'.
As of September 2022, I opened a tiny stationery shop, based off the 'souvenir shop' in Pepper Point. Each item is designed by me, some handmade, and are a way for fans (aka 'residents' or 'visitors' to the town) to have a piece of Pepper Point - the same reason you would take home a souvenir when you go on a holiday. This concept gives the store and items a deeper meaning. It's more than having cute decorative objects and art - every design has a story behind it!
