Hi all! I know you’re used to my positive-vibed artworks~ but for now let me post something a little bit darker. Haha I know, it’s not really very obvious in this drawing, with all the baby pink hues, roses, laces, and all, but if you look closer you’ll see that there are things here that normally do not fit well with the whole picture. ヾ(^ ^ゞ
As many of my readers know, my friends and I founded Kawaii Philippines last year. I admit, I was a bit new to the kawaii culture (well newer compared to my friends and teammates) when I joined the team. Well, sure, I LOVED drawing cute things, collecting adorable stuff, and dressing up in kawaii outfits way before that, but still, most of the “whats” and “whos” about the kawaii culture, I learned from joining the Kawaii PH team.
In the first few days of being totally immersed in the culture (thanks to my very enthusiastic teammates, haha!), it was a total kawaii overload for me. I fell in love with the kawaii culture even more (and in a more deeper level)! I (along with my teammates) began to see “kawaii” as a fun and positive way of living, and it inspired me to express myself more.
