It took me a while to build this new website together with my webmaster, photographer, adviser and wonderful friend Jessica Soto.
It was painful, very painful, to change the name of my website. But after talking and taking advice from several professional illustratrors and graphic designers, I follow their advice to use my name instead of a brand name.
It felt sad and it was difficult to change it because what the name Love Fighters means to me. I was at despair and in a very difficult situation, surrounded by problems in all the areas in my life when I decided, raising from the ashes of my soul, to turn the ying yang upside down. I got all that unbearable pain running through my veins and turn it into art. Art and love are the only things that can save our life. It help me a lot at that time. It gave strength, hope and meaning to my life. It resurrected me.
But now, luckily, I am in a veeery different situation. I made a path of decisions and actions that made my life truly happy. Things are wonderful and I enjoy every single day, every single moment. So, I had to let go the brand name, for good.
So, new name means new logo. It took me 5 months to create a perfect logo. Hundreds of papers with sketches and tests. Many logo ideas and designs. Crazy ones, lovely ones, funny ones… The last one I made was the perfect one. It turns to be a different version of the first one XD
I hope you guys like my new website. World, here I am!!! \(^o^)/
From a short time ago I noticed that craft shops in Japan are selling sets and tools to do needle felting. I have to say that the first thing I saw was a needle felting book with pictures of adroable fluffy creatures. I totally fell in love with them and I wanted to try to make some. The sales staff at one shop told me that it was very difficult to make them. So, because I was so busy at that time I didn’t make anything.
Recently these super cute felt animals, figures or accesories are everywhere and the ones for sale are not exactly cheap. So, I decided to squish my schedule and start to make them ^____^
For some time I’m constantly finding doodles and illustrations, from famous (and not yet famous) artists, drawn in Moleskine notebooks.
The final result is really beautiful. Personally I love that material because I think it’s very intimate. When using a notebook it seems that we are creating illustrations just for ourselves, without any pressure or worries. In my case, sometimes it’s still a little difficult to give full freedom to my pencil without any rational instruction from my brain. This is why I thought that a Moleskine will help me to lose the fear of drawing.
