Hey everyone! Usagi here!!

Sorry it's been a while since I've made an entry. I've had a lot of projects going on and
winter weather keeping me indoors has given me plenty of time to create new artwork.
(That and fooling around doing cosplay in the snow - as my recent submissions show. haha!)

First off, I thought it a good idea to start this new year by kinda revamping my image as an artist!
That means, a new look (updates soon) and a new logo:

The design is kind of like my own personal Kamon crest more than a chop signature.
'Usagi' is balancing a paintbrush, as a symbol of concentration,
just like a shinobi balancing a leaf on his head to gather chakra energy on a single point.
Being an artist requires a lot of patience and concentration,
two qualities I hope to improve in myself.
The background is my favorite Japanese motif, the Tachibana, a symbol of things long-lasting.
My hope is that I'll be able to continue being an artist for as long as I possibly can and never ever give up!

I'm going to try and focus my newer artworks into subjects and themes I personally enjoy the most.
Creating Fan Art is awesome but I also want to make things that come from my heart.
My joy comes from traditional Japanese art, history and kimono culture so you'll notice
these newer pieces resembling ukiyo-e and classic woodblock prints, while at the same time
including my love of shonen style action, bold and dynamic movements and colors!

As for future Artist Alley adventures coming up, I'll be posting a 2016 Anime Con list as soon as I get
dates finalized. Very exciting trips will be in-store! I can't wait!!!!

So that's the plan! Thanks again to everyone who has supported me so far and continues to do so.
I really appreciate all your kind comments and words of encouragement! It means a lot to me!!

Hi! I was just wondering if my commission was in the mail yet. It occurred to me that I should have asked for a receipt or something.
