I really really love them right now. serious face. I LOOOOVE THEMMMMM.

I’ve been listening to them everyday for the past month. and i can’t stop.

I had an idea to make a “Band of Bears” (it was either that or “Musical Bears”) where i make figures themed to bands that I love to shreds. After making this one, i’m beginning to regret both the size (7″) and the materials i chose (air drying clay) so this may be the first and last 7″ bear you see on here.
Next week will probably be more photos of stuff

Peace out!

Me and my friend did a little session of red velvet cupcakes to decide which place (out of 4 we knew of) did them the best!

One Step At A Time October 11, 2010

Well as you may have noticed, i haven’t posted anything on here in ages. thats because i haven’t drawn anything decent since my last post.

I have been baking alot tho. see?

Soooo I’ve decided from this day on, this blog is going to be inactive.

I now have a new artist name, “Bii” (to add to my list – chibi-shibby, shybii and chu) and i will be writing on a new blog with my good friend Bu on –

As i keep hinting over and over again – i can’t produce something new every week, and as the past few months have shown – i can go for long periods of time not producing anything. So this new blog will allow me to post less frequently, and it wont solely be about my art – it’ll be about 2 girls, their lives, and them trying to work with their talents to make something for people to enjoy and be inspired by.

So to conclude this post:


any pieces i do will be posted on

any short comics i ever do will be posted on

and my new blog, co-owned with a friend is

Thank you to everyone who has supported me on here despite my inconsistancy in posting. I’m doing this to hopefully become BETTER at this whole juggling projects thing – by taking things one step at a time and doing things at my own pace, i hope to cope better with work loads and improve my prioritising. I’m also doing this to push my friend to use her talent, and in turn this whole thing will encourage me to do something i’ve been wanting to do for YEARS – design and make clothes. That and make an actual portfolio/website thingy i can call my own 😀

It will be a slow journey, mainly because i’m a slow worker, but hopefully you’ll come along for the ride ^_^

peace and love


(ps, if your wondering “why doesnt she post her comics on here?” I wanted to keep all my little comic strips in one place – thats why you wont see them on deviantart either.)
