Introduction to Chirimen craftNo interview this month, but a (very)short article about something I discovered in Japan.Introduction to Chirimen craft8 months ago in Personal More Like This
We entered this hotel in Tokyo and in the main hall, there was this kind of huge frame with hundreds of little sewn dolls.
There were fishes, bunnies, flowers, temari, household items like teapots, fruits, vegetables, butterflies and much more.
Sorry for the blurry photos, I didn't know I would use them to illustrate an article
During our journey through Japan, from Tokyo over Kyoto to Kumamoto, I saw those dolls many times.
A research on the web as soon as I was home told me, that those dolls are apparently called "hanging hina dolls" and they are made from "chirimen".
What is chirimen?
Chirimen is a special weaving technique to create a fabric. This fabric, also called chirimen, is characterised by weaves or wrinkles, that give the fabric it's unique structure.
What is chirimen used for?
Chirimen is usually use

F A QSome questions I often get on and offline.F A Q1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Please ask my parents, because I want to know the answer to that, too!
When did you start drawing?
I started drawing on November 16 2006 after a really traumatic incident in my life. Art gave me a new lease of life. I had been using photoshop for a fair few years before that, though, so I dove straight into digital art with my mouse. I got my first tablet on October 2nd 2007.
How long have you been on deviantART?
Nearly ten years, now. I originally used deviantART to look up images and stories to inspire my own writing.
What is 'gender neutral'?
I believe that gender is NOT binary. We are not simply male or female. We may have the genitalia of one or the other, but that is our sex, not our gender. Our gender goes much deeper than what we have between our legs. Gender is so much more than that! Gender is a spectrum and while we may lean more to one side or the other, some of us a

I searched for quite a long time, up in the wee hours of the morning, pulling out my hair to put together a whitebox with everything I want. The price was NEVER below $1300. IBuyPower is an awesome site, but I couldn't pull it off. Ebay was my only option left after scouring about 5 other sites. Then this guy came up and I was pretty stoked.

What non-artists don't seem to understand...So this is a bit of a rant, but I just finished a large nativity set commissioned by a family member, and when one of my other relatives heard the price, they said, "well, it better be cast in gold." This sort of ignorant comment seems to be something that I (and probably all other artists) encounter from time to time. People who aren't artists, or aren't around artists, just don't seem to appreciate the work and passion that goes into creating a work of art. Do they not have a creative or technical mind, and are therefore unable to see all of the detail and design that goes into something? Or is it simply that they don't think artists deserve that much money?What non-artists don't seem to understand...1 month ago in Personal More Like This
I hope that when my relative (who I don't know very well) sees the set of figurines, that the work speaks for itself. But if she still can't understand, I suppose it's her loss, because my great-grandmother that commissioned it certainly appreciates my work.

Traumas and LoveI have reached a point in my life where I no longer feel a need to talk about my personal life on the Internet other than funny little stories, both because from there very start people would misinterpret what I was getting at which made it feel kinda pointless, and also because I'm now more calm and at ease with myself.Traumas and Love7 months ago in Personal More Like This
But one thing I have never shared with you is why I joke about things. Obviously humor is very important to me, but I'm rarely completely honest about why I think some serious subjects are okay to joke about.
I deal with my own traumas that way.
I'm very much a Chandler ("Friends"). I don't do deep emotional moments. I make silly comics to get it out, and they are my equivalent of "You don't have to comment, just listen" and "It's okay, you don't have to feel awkward about this with me just because I've been through shit. We can joke about it"
Of course I've been an idiot, because how are people supposed to know it when I don't want to talk about it to random people on
Accidentally Enamoured.This is a poem I typed, dedicated to someone very special.Accidentally Enamoured.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It seems like just yesterday I was that girl that did not utter a word in philosophy class. You of course were one of the stars from that class. I watched you from afar and found something about you that made me yearn to learn more. I did not think much of it so I just brushed that feeling off.
But it lingered.
There were moments last semester when my thoughts would drift towards your existence. But I wanted to remain faithful to the lover I held at the moment. And I also thought I had a snowball's chance in hell with you. That an "us" could not exist in a million years. I never dreamed it would even be possible for someone of your caliber to ever foster feelings for someone as juvenile as myself. But it happened.
I feel as if luck threw us in our Anatomy and Physiology lab on purpose. I got the chance to actually talk to you. And then the unexpected happened. Cupid's arrow struck me. I was caught off guard. One night I knew I
