Hello! You are so talented and you have been inspiring me to create more art daily for a while now. I have been meaning to ask, but haven't gotten around to it -_-, what camera do you use to photograph your art process? Those photos with your pretty jellyfish are so detailed and I've been trying to find the best way to document my art process without having to scan it all at a store. Thanks for your time! Keep creating and inspiring!

Hey, thanks! Also your question makes me laugh because I use the least special method of documenting my work. That jellyfish photo that you like that appears so detailed (this one? or this one?) was just taken with my phone, which is a Moto X:

(PHONECEPTION.)

Most of the photos in my archive and all the photos in my shop were taken with this 5-year-old digital point and shoot Casio Exilim (8.1 megapixels, lol):

(EXILIMCEPTION.)

So, two fairly low quality, old, etc. gadgets. I pretty much always take pictures when there’s lots of natural light available—very important!—and on the little camera I use the macro setting a lot. Maybe I should’ve asked Santa for a legit camera this year…

I’m thinking maybe I ruined this by painting it, but I also couldn’t leave a line drawing on watercolor paper because that stuff ain’t free, you guys. Might as well add some background color, I guess!

Hello there! I absolutely love your art. You have an incredible talent of working with watercolours and ink! I admire your work, your illustrations and ideas inspire me. uwu If I may ask, how do you go about with thinking up ideas for your art?

I don’t know how to answer this question. I guess I think up ideas like anyone thinks up ideas. Usually they just come to you, but they are influenced by the things you digest during the day—what you read, watch, listen to, dwell upon. I’ve looked at lots of children’s and fantasy illustration in my life until this point, the input of which has surely influenced my output! Also, my ideas are often dictated by the materials I use in my drawings. Watercolor by its very nature suggests certain images, something ethereal and indefinite. 

I don’t know if this makes sense, but it’s the best I can do!

My Terrarium Zine by Cynthia L. (maruti-bitamin.tumblr.com) came a couple of days ago! I’d forgotten that I’d pre ordered it, so it was a nice surprise. She included a tiny original watercolor drawing. Above is just one of the beautiful spreads. You can order yours at her shop, koyamori.storenvy.com.

P.S. If you know of a good way to get color zines printed, let me know at this post!
