An Exciting Season!



Christmas is coming and I can’t believe what a busy and wonderful season I’ve had!  I want to wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

My mother and I dressed for my friend's traditional Japanese wedding!
Throughout the fall I enjoyed many blessings including travel to visit friends, attend a wedding in Japan, and hang out with awesome artists at CTNX in Burbank, CA.

Hello CTN Expo!
The fall also brought about a change in my routine as I became an Adjunct Online Instructor teaching a Photoshop class.  Adding teaching into my life has caused me to be a little less attentive to keeping up with social media, but it’s been a true blessing.

So, what else is new?  Outside of teaching I’m continuing to work on some freelance projects and my own little sweeties Penguin & Peep!

Speaking of Penguin & Peep, they have a new calendar for sale just in time for 2016!
 
Available in the Subarashii Store:
Penguin & Peep 2016 Calendar

My latest publication is now available to purchase- Minnesota Minotaur which features chapter illustrations I worked on.  

 
Available in my Artist’s Shop (and on amazon.com):
Minnesota Minotaur

I hope you enjoy your holiday season and that you will be blessed!

Thanks for reading,

-Monica

I haven’t done many contests in the past, but I gave a go at a t-shirt design for this one.  If you have account with WeLoveFine.com or wouldn’t mind creating one, you can rate my t-shirt design here:

Shopping:

As announced in the previous update, you can now shop online at ArtistMonica.com, and also still at the etsy store (Subarashii.etsy.com) for more Penguin & Peep items.  I’d also like to let you know that if there’s a piece of art not online that you saw at a show, chances are I still have it and just haven’t listed it online yet, so feel free to contact me about anything you don’t see!  contact@artistmonica.com

Have a wonderful week!
