Oh my, I seem to be having problems.
Long time, big upgrade
Hello! after a long long time, I have decided to upgrade my site! The upgrade is a work in progress, and It is going to be really nice! This will be more of a UX upgrade rather than UI, and it should showcase some of the skills I can offer to potential clients. Hopefully you will like it.
I admit, I haven’t worked on this site much since the earthquake in Japan last year. Living though such a horrific natural disaster has been devastating to me and my career. I have gone through many ups and downs, but in the end I am a stronger than before.
I am just letting you know that I am all right after the Japan earthquake. So far I am safe, but I am worried about the Nuclear reactor just north of me.
As for some strange news regarding this, almost all my work in Japan has stopped. So I am unable to make any money except through design. I guess this makes me a full time designer.
In the mean time. I am going to try to stay safe and warm.
I have just finished upgrading my site to Expression Engine 2.0! It is nice to have a freelancer license so that I can now legally use this site to hopefully get me some more recognition out there. Of course there are some little things which I need to get working again. For example I need to fix the smilies…
And I need to learn a whole new control panel. I hope that I can learn this new cms quickly! I will let you know what I think once I finish playing around with it a bit!
Announcing HUGGY HEARTS
I have an announcement to make! My company’s first product, Huggy Hearts, has been released on Facebook!
Huggy Hearts is a facebook app where you can create original cards and send them to your friends. There are a variety of stickers and backgrounds you can choose to decorite your cards! It is really cute!
I made most of the stickers, and my friend Skinniwini made the UI

Hey everybody!! Well I have exciting news!
My bunnies and I got a new job doing what we love most, making CUTE pictures
We have signed on with a start up company making graphics for apps! It is perhaps the BEST job I could ever ask for, because I get to work while laying down on the floor and drinking coffee!
Unfortunately I am going to be super busy, so it is going to be hard for me to find time to make some personal projects. I will also be too busy to work with other clients too :( But once things get going I may find time to continue bringing you my cute art work!!
I will let you know my company once we release our first product!!
In the mean time, Ninja Bunny and I have to work in the graphic factory, pumping out graphics!!!
100 days, 100 projects
I hope everybody is having a wonderfully productive new year!! I must say that 2011 has been AWESOME to me so far!
So Awesome, I have decided to take a 100 day challenge. I will be making 100 projects within the first 100 days of 2011!!
I am doing this to learn to PUSH myself, and take my productivity to levels it has never been!!
I am making advertisements, illustrations, graphics, web pages, and basically anything. 100 in 100 days!!
Well, we are 5 days into the year, and I have already finished 7 projects. Lucky number 7 being this cute little background for my MAF page
of course, if you like it, you can use it yourself!
I will show you the cute ones here.
But for now, I need to make a webpage!!
Client pages up
Since I got a license of expression engine 2.1 (well coming Jan 10th) I will be officially be able to use this page for commercial purpose.
I have been running it on the 1.6 core, as I have been working with registered version for a client…well it is messy. Lets just say everything will be clean and legal
The software is great, and I strongly believe you need to pay people for the work they do.
Anyway, I will be able to “open shop” for business (and not just play, ok still play) and hopefully attract more clients to this site. So I have opened up my “clients” pages.
You can view them in the gallery or from the front page.
I also got a cute famicon made for my site! Cute, no?
