I was gaining momentum…


…and then my custom illustration output had to be put on hold as I re-examined my to-do list. Which is a shame because I really, really enjoy working on them.

Like this foxy guy.


They’re actually not entirely on hold, since I’m painting what I can here and there, but progress is slooooooooooooow. But mark my words, they will get done!

I’m loving all the various requests so much, I’ve scanned them all with a vague notion of showcasing them together at some point. So many plans, so many hopes. When will human cloning become a viable option?

  1. That fox is wonderful. Just take your time. We are all just patiently waiting. They’ll be done when they’re done and they will be wonderful!

  2. It’s a huge undertaking and whenever mine arrives I assure you it will feel like a birthday/christmas combo! I’d rather wait and wait and know you enjoyed the process than receive it promptly and feel like you created a burden for yourself (and i know I got a bit elaborate with my request, sorry 🙂 )

    1. Thanks for your patience Shelley! I’ve started on yours and want to add more details…and no, your request wasn’t elaborate at all! 🙂

  3. Oh, the foxy guy! He’s so handsome!

    Fabulous idea to scan them all – then we can see the album of gorgeousness in its entirety, and know that a little bit of it is scattered across the globe!

    I don’t mind how long it takes – agree with Lightning, it shouldn’t be a burden. Let them unfurl

  4. Ooh those are so pretty! I wonder if I could learn to be careful and precise with a brush if I tried really hard and stopped drinking coffee and learned to paint… 🙂

    1. You could absolutely learn how to be precise with a brush, Ali! I firmly believe painting has less to do with talent and has everything to do with practice 🙂

  5. I received a very special parcel in the post today, and unusually, I was home when the postman put it on my doorstep!
    Thank you Sanae, very much! I love it! It’s WONDERFUL!
    I have of course taken pictures – of the parcel before I unwrapped it, and now, its new home (at least until I find the right frame.
    Again, thank you for your generosity – it’s really lovely of you, and I will treasure it.


    1. So happy it got to you, Jenny! I’m actually surprised how quickly it reached your doorstep – I’ve had packages take far longer to your neck of the woods before. It was my pleasure to paint the illustrations for you, Jenny!
