I just finished two new sweets paintings! One is another take on a cake slice painting that I’ve sold already. I’m planning to do a bunch of them in different color schemes. The cupcake is a new design based on the shape of cupcake that baked in Brooklyn makes. These are both 5 x 7 painted on boards with gouache and ink.

I am very much looking forward to the Sakura Matsuri at Brooklyn Botanic Garden! I even designed these special pins to sell at the event so people can have cherry blossoms all year round! I’ll also have postcards, my graphic novels and bonus manga from Japan by my friend Yuuko Koyama! I’ll be at the Manga and Anime Alley both days! See you there!
