Saboten Con 2010

There's a local anime/manga/otaku convention in 3 days. It will be my third time having an Artist Alley table, but my first time actually having art prints.

I started around summer time on my first print:

Black Rock Shooter.
A friend told me my style of art would look good as fan art for her, but after finishing this print, I felt like I lost myself half way through.
In the end, I decided to not sell this. (As so many people in the beginning disapproved haha)

Here are the prints I will be selling however:

My Neighbor Totoro
Totoro and friends chibi cut out thing!
Oh how I squeal with joy over Totoro.
(also my current persona on fire fox :D)

"Would you like a cup of tea?"
A personal... view? of Mad Hatter derp.
It originally had the March Hare... but I couldn't figure out how I wanted his clothes to be compared to Hatter's.

Mercedes and Gwendolyn from Odin Sphere
They were sooo cute, I couldn't not draw them! Hahah
There are some others that look really cool, so I decided that I would at least get one new one done for whatever upcoming convention.

Myself o w o
My friend Annabel Lee heavily suggested for me to have a self portrait print... that she would buy one if I did.
and I did! xD

My very first print. I am so deeply attached to this print. You have no idea.
I felt I finally achieved my aesthetic in art in this piece and my close friend Okunote water-colored it for me.


Here's a sneak peak of my Ruki print that you can only find here!
Heheheh.... Ruki.....


Pricing has not been decided yet for these prints.
I am also opening $1 chibi commissions! (starting this weekend only)

You can find all these pieces and more at my dA account: http://ladylarc.deviantart.com/

I was looking through some old photos and found a banner that Saint made:

This was probably made around the time I got my dA account because that wing design was my first icon (December 21, 2006).
The story behind this was that I was talking to Saint and telling her I wanted to create fashion designs. She suggested the title "Random Wing Designs" and created this banner.

I wasn't very specific with what I wanted to create... I didn't really have a specific taste/fashion sense either. I was only 12.
Now I'm 16 and I love Japanese Fashion.

I know when I was in elementary school, I constantly changed what I wanted to be in the future (go figure), but I do remember at some point, just drawing clothes and thinking, "this drawing is sooo awesome and I want to make this one day" (though, when I think back on the design and drawing... it was... kinda ugly. haha)
After changing what I wanted to be when I grow up a couple of times, I realized that I always came back to the idea of being a fashion designer.

Of course, there were major influences that had me going back to the idea:
Visual Kei
the models
peoples art on different fashion styles
androgynous beauty

which also lead to my modeling.
A few people have asked when I started modeling. Truthfully, I've only been modeling for a year now.

The first photo shoot I had wasn't probably till late 2008, early 2009. It's kind of odd thinking about it and realizing it hasn't been that long ago. I know though, that I've gain a lot of experience since then and still trying to improve. (As I always think that there's always room for improvement).

But these two things tie in together so strongly that I don't think I could be one without the other. Modeling has helped me grow as a designer/stylist and designing has created explosive photo shoot ideas.

They balance each other out. Fo-sure.

So many thoughts are running across my mind. I only hope that readers get what I mean.

Every cut is an experiment!

I haven't blogged in forever ; 3 ;

But I've recently got a hair cut! (Sunday to be exact)

It was inspired by Ryo from the JRock band, Girugamesh.
It's now shorter... everywhere, but still maintaining my original length (Asian-mullet wise haha)

I've just recovered actually from being sick. I think it was the worse I've ever been.
I was so sick that I missed one whole week of school. Which worked out well since I got a new cut before I went back today !

Why was I sick for a week you ask?
Sunday/Monday, it just started out as a fever. I was quickly going from cold to hot. That lame feeling of being neutral and you can't decide whether to keep yer jacket on or not. DUMB. So Monday night I took some NyQuil (the red gross flavor). Although, the next day, I broke out in hives. Although, we didn't know that at the time and thought it was the chicken pox. After a couple of days, the bumps grew bigger, redder, and itchier.

The feeling was "pas terrible!"

In the end, I went to the doctors and they drugged me haha. Then got on some pills so that the hives would slowly go away. They have thank goodness.

... I must say that, through out all this, I pulled a Howl.

Yes, I did. I pulled a:


If you're thinking that I'm full of myself, I'm not truly like that. The hives at some point reached my face. My face got blotchy, red, swollen. You name it. I was really down in the gutters last week.

But as you can see from my hair cut photos, I look and feel a lot better!

no way




I never thought one boy could have this many toys ! O________O

I'm... drowning slowly in them D:

Have to clean my brothers room. He's like... 11? Doesn't know how to clean... not even the Asian way~
My older sister and I were taught by my mum:
"Go and clean yer brother room"
"what... WHY!? Why can't he clean it for himself?"
"He doesn't know how to do it. You teach him"
Grumbles away

Me? Teach him? You got to be kidding me.
I literally have no patience whatsoever at the moment.

All of it is going to:
Saboten prints
DF/Fashion show
Older sister being a BUTT

And another thing... once again, people who don't respond to emails... it equals one of my biggest pet peeves of all time. And I quote " It takes less than 10 minutes just to reply. "

Yes, it does.

Anger is a great way let it out when cleaning. It makes time fly by.

Now I must go before my mum catches me back on here. heh. Good thing no one reads this either ;D

A couple days ago I was talking to some friends. Something that I've been thinking about for quite a while just wouldn't escape and I just had to ask.

So I asked the two, "what is it necessarily called when you don't like boys... or girls?" ( yes, that also includes men and women if you wanna be like that )

For some reason... it just doesn't seem like a... priority(?) to be with someone/just liking a person.
I really don't like being tied down in any kind of way and I feel like having someone in my life will just slow me down.
Have you ever felt that way?

Then again, it kinda scares me that I'll find no one when I'm older~ hurrhuurrrr

Maybe I feel like there's a lot of things going on in my life at the moment and having something like a relationship will just make me freak out more.

To friends who know: That GUY. Ya know
the guy~ Yeah... after so long, I'm finally over him. It's a rather empowering feeling. hahah.

On other news... I'M SO SCREWED. I gotta do shit. FUCK.


annd... what I don't get is when people don't reply to emails. Seriously, WTF.
Like, it's understandable if yer busy, but when that's the same excuse over and over and over again its just very questioning whether yer a lazy ass, full of yerself or just not evening using an email when that's what things are for.
GAH. //rant// just need people to reply to important things.

I miss my best friends ; ^ ;
