This was something I whipped up for the r/touhou community. I took Yukari Yakumo and created “nose art” in line of the Stars in Shadow universe. Didn’t make it too “pinup-y” if that made sense. Mainly just wanted to make her the girl of attention toting a giant cannon.
Ship silhouettes from the Stars in Shadow game.
If you ever feel bad about not finding a job (like I’ve felt in the past,) you’ll find something eventually. Just keep looking and improving on yourself. The right jobby-job is waiting out there for you!

So I follow the infamous Reg, daughter of the mom who’d play numerous Bioware video games. This subsequently led to the creation of Bioware According to Mom, which has been a fantastic journey to many, including the mom getting some fame in Mass Effect 3 when the Citadel DLC came out.
Anyways, Reg’s birthday was today and I saw a post of “all I got for my birthday was a discount code to buy a mobile game.” I figured the Internet space could do better, hence I cooked this up!
References include Bioware mom quips including the “krogers” working at Krogers (her pronunciation of krogans), Garrus getting stuck with the name Beans, and lastly getting her hands on a babby kroger (that’s how she spelled it.)
Suffice to say Reg loved it. Glad to be of service. Swing by their blog or follow on Twitter for more shenanigans!
Bioware According to Mom
This was certainly a surprise. If you remember my last post here, I had done a piece for Moon Studio’s #OriValentine giveaway. Turns out I actually won a prize! They sent it out in the mail for me, which arrived a short bit ago.
Until I got these, I had no idea merchandising for this game was really a thing. Stuff’s pretty cool; snazzy pin, little napkin packet and a spiffy journal. Mom actually likes this journal a whole lot, and likes the character art on the front!
I also got my name listed on their site, which is also pretty amazing. A big thank you to you guys, I’m glad you liked my doodle of Ori going giddy over coffee.
I almost missed this one, but was browsing Twitter one night when I saw that Moon Studios were having a giveaway, in which they’d hand out some Ori-themed merchandise based on who submitted artwork. They’d pick some they like, then give those winners a prize. I never tried entering my art in contests like this (I always thought I was subpar and kind of still do), but I just decided to try something and get a piece out there.
This was the final result. I wasn’t too happy on the background but the overall piece was all right. I definitely liked the concept! So I entered it into the competition. We’ll see how it goes.
EDIT: Wow. I actually got selected and won a prize! This is just mind-blowing and completely floored me. I never expected to actually win something out of this. Thank you so much, Moon Studios. You guys are awesome!
You can check out my prize here. I also got listed on the developer’s site as a contest winner!
It’s short, but just a shoutout that I’m alive and doing well. Hope everyone had a great holiday seasoon! This is just a nutshell in what I’m planning to do this year.
In a big first, an art buddy of mine teams up with me for a collab video! Enjoy our shenangians.
