Christmas Tree Doritos!
The longer I’m in Japan, the more I find myself doubting whether things are strange or if perhaps I’m just out if the loop. Upside-down Christmas trees, six-eyed snowmen…my sense of normal is changing with every passing year. With these … Continue reading

On the last day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…
Christmas penguins! It’s the end of winter break, and the first chance I had to pick up my brushes in about two weeks. I actually started this one before the holiday vaguely based on this article on Slate and the … Continue reading

Today’s Watercolor: Buon Natale! Merry Christmas! メリークリスマス!
Merry Christmas! A coworker brought me some homemade panettone recently, so I painted this as a little thank you. She also loves all things Italian, so I’ve been dusting off my very out of practice Italian to chat with her. … Continue reading

Today’s Watercolor: Beast, the Puppy!
Today’s watercolor is based on this awesome comic. Beast from Beauty and the Beast, as he might have been when he first transformed. He’s like a puppy!

Today’s Watercolor: Christmas Puppies
Happy December! I’m starting to get some lovely holiday season feelings, so today’s watercolor is just the thing. Also, today’s painting is actually a request from Sean’s mom–puppies playing with ribbons on a Christmas present. Yay, requests! As always, if … Continue reading

A very Kyary Xmas!
Recently, on a particularly good hair day, one of my students declared that I had “Christmas Hair.” I don’t think this is quite what he meant, but I love it!

Neon Genesis Evangelion Christmas Cake
A few weeks ago I talked about the K-On! Christmas cake, and mentioned there was another cake that looked even cooler. I planned to order one for Sean, but missed the cutoff date and kicked myself for days. Then, on … Continue reading
