Xiao Fu in the Summer.

Guess what this lady has been up to?

Woot! Wearable art! I’ve been developing my brand and characters these past 6 months and I’m super excited to reveal this. This is the first new product of mine in a while and I am so happy with the results. It is also a new medium of mine to play with so look out for more in the future. Also notice the new logo. A website is in the works as well as possibly some PVC figures. Crossing my fingers that the brain juice will continue to work and get inspired. ^-^

The design on this shirt was based off of a tiger plushie I made 2 years ago for a art gallery show. It was inspired by my first trip to China with my family and I saw all these amazing folk art. Xiao Fu is in the same set of designs as Boba pig below. They will be an entire line of animal people as well. 😀

Here is a picture of me after I ripped apart the box and immediately put on the shirt in it’s instagrammed glory.

Also would appreciate some love on my facebook page. It’s lonely.

I’ve been on vacation for about 5 days now including this weekend. No wonder retiree’s get bored. I’m bored outta my mind. I’ve gone through my hard disk looking for old projects. I’ve been trying to improve my octogirl to make it a bit cleaner and more graphic. It’s been 4-5 years since the birth of my original drawings of her. There are about 5-6 versions of her on my MAC right now. Half I can’t even find. So, the newest I’ve made is the ganguro bright color edition. The eyes are girlier and more symetric. Their going to grace sticker form again into packs which I might start trading again.

stickers coming soon

Ya like? I might add some to the shop too if I can make enough. I need them cash. Sadly, I’m running out and my school just sent me yet another letter asking for more money. Fuckers. Merry Xmas Folks. Enjoy the holidays and drink lots of cocoa.

Limp Arm and Lazy mind

No effin way.

I’m like a giddy school girl who’s got a autograph from her favorite artist/designer.

So, by now you’ve probably noticed, I got my designs made into fabrics. YAY! now I don’t know exactly what to make of them yet but I’m sure I’ll know by the holidays. I’ve got too much work to do right now and I’m a bit behind in my work. Hence the title, limp arm and lazy mind. I’m lazy and my arm is limp and it hurts. I just got my flu shot and every year that happens my arm feels numb and it hurts like hell. Great for a Halloween celebration eh?

Hi! Nice to meet you.

My first post ever. This is a blog to archive the other side of my design. I mean, other than Flickr, I have never been able to explain my work. Now, here’s my chance and the ultra clean layouts of wordpress just makes it oh so easier.

Now, just to get the hang of posting pictures.

So, who am I? To start off, I’m Wendy. 20 year old soon to be graphic designer. I’m a collector who falls in love with everything. I love design. And, on my freetime, I design products to cater to all my obsessions and do amateur photography. So, my friends what have I been working on for the year of o8′.

Take a peek.

Ke Ai Fruit Postcards

These are postcards based on some of my newer characters

that was influenced greatly by the girls of Asia and their cute culture.

Cotton Candy Girl

Cotton Candy Girl Postcards and Sticker Set

This is definitely influenced by my mom. She use to tell me about the

red bows she tied her braids with while she was in China.

This is my favorite character of the set.
