One of my resolutions this year was to take better care of myself and to take more short weekend trips to beautiful places! I did both of those more this year and that’s awesome! We even got to enjoy the Super Bloom in the poppy fields!

I did my first Kickstarter!

I dyed my hair an unnatural color for the first time (and loved it!).

I started making my first doll room! I made my first ita-bag.

I made another Victorian gown which we shot photos of in an awesome location (one of my favorite things to do!) I made my first faery costume, and cosplayed a dragon, Sophie and Wonder Woman!

Here’s some photos that remind me of what happened this year!

This year I mostly worked doing storyboards for Matt Groening’s new animated tv show, Disenchantment, which isn’t out yet, so I can’t show you anything! I feel like I got better at my shot selection and composition this year. I’ll keep working on it!

I sold at ECCC for the first time and it was great!

I did my first Kickstarter this year and it was successful! These pins were funded! (They are currently available in my etsy shop)


I did several fun art shows this year for QPopShop, Meltdown Comics and 3Tarts.

I also did some fan art pieces for fun:


And I did a lot of development drawings for a children’s book I’m working on for fun. (Here’s a few below from that.)

I sure didn’t get all my resolutions done for this year but we had a lot of fun, did lots of awesome stuff and worked hard. This year I worked on The Croods animated tv show at Dreamworks and an unannounced animated tv show at Stoopid Buddy. I did a lot of drawing and sewing as usual. We had Disneyland Annual passes and really enjoyed going with the twins. I also feel really lucky to have had a lot of quality time this year with friends.


I didn’t have a ton of time to make costumes this year due to other obligations but I still made some things that I really loved!

I had really wanted to make a new Victorian gown for a while and ended up loving this red and black one when I finished it.

I loved wearing my Unicorn Game of Thrones inspired gown to a castle winery!

I made flower fairy dresses for the twins!

I made an obnoxious hot pink Regency gown.

I loved this Mrs. Potts Beauty and the Beast felt skirt I did

I was very happy to finally cosplay Isabella from ParaKiss, though the costume was very hot!

I loved attending Star Wars Celebration with my twins.

This year I worked on The Croods animated tv show at Dreamworks and an unannounced animated tv show at Stoopid Buddy! I hope you’ll enjoy them when they come out!

I’m really happy with a lot of the personal work I did this year. I had a lot of fun making pretty things in COPIC markers. I did a lot of yokai sketches, too, but I’m still working on that. Here’s a few of my favorite finished things from this year!

This piece inspired by Howl’s Moving Castle, “Powerful Magic” was for the Spirit of the Wind Art Show at Rotthick Art Haus

“It Binds All Things” Jedi Art Show piece for The Hive Gallery.

Poison Ivy piece for the 90’s cartoon show at The Hive Gallery.

Moon Goddess Yue

I did a few child portrait commissions this year!

It was fun to do a few super hero inspired gown designs
