Wow, can't quite believe we're at week 20 already!

We're beginning to seriously plan the specs of doing an artbook for the project. It's super exciting and tiring because I have this unstoppable compulsion to make lists and go crazy about trying to get everything asap. Still gotta do fashion work ofc, but it's such an exhilarating feeling I see no point in trying to hold back. :D

On that note, not sure if you guys saw, but Yuumei did a super beautiful guest piece for us! Check it out here. :3 We have a stellar list of artists coming along for the book so keep an eye out on the Facebook page for updates~

How apt is it that I have another Amano-inspired piece to coincide with the Final Fantasy announcement at E3? :D

This shoot was so amazing to work on. Magic team is magic. I loved this piece so much. Someone said it's like the live action version of Amano's Angel's Egg. Oh how I wish. Would be brilliant if anything Amano made is turned into live-action. 

Also I'm in Milan! The Photo Vogue exhibition opening is tomorrow! Swing by to say hi if you're in town! :D

I'm terrible at keeping up once I travel. :( Meant to include some behind the scenes for this post and thus the delay, but never got around to them in the end T_T

Retouched the shot on the plane during my 26-hour trip from NY to Vietnam. I don't enjoy the cramped space for laptop and wacom but managed somehow anyway :D Really love the photo. Thank you team for the wonderful work and Savage Paper for the backdrop! ♥
