There are tons of great creaters in Etsy.
While I surf around Pinterest, I do lot of Etsy surfing too. So I want to start sharing my Etsy finds posts.

Vintage Tattoo Style

Had this illustration done while ago and I totally forgot to post this!

This is a style I wanted to approach where you draw anime style but color in like a vintage tattoo style. It gave an unexpected result where I want to try out more variety in the future.

Here is my first try!

Layered Crusted Eggplants

Simple side dish you can make for any meat dish!

One of my favorite ways to eat eggplants, which is simple seasoning and roasting them. I enjoy eating this by itself as main dish. Good for vegetarians.

Layered Crusted Eggplants

Layered Crusted Eggplants:
- 2 large Eggplants, slice in 1cm
- Parmesan Cheese, grated

- 1 cup of Panko
- 4 tbsp Olive Oil
- Pinch of Salt and Pepper

Pasta Sauce or Homemade Tomato Sauce:
- 4 Tomatoes, diced
- 1/2 tbsp Basil
- 1/2 tbsp Oregano
- 1 tbsp butter
- Salt and Pepper

1. Set Oven to 350F/180C. Place parchment paper on baking trays. Lay eggplants.

2. Crust: In a bowl, mix Panko, olive oil, salt and pepper. Mix very well. Pour the mix on to eggplants evenly. Put in the oven for 30min.

3. Homemade Tomato Sauce: Heat sauce pan at medium-high. Melt the butter and pour tomatoes in the pan. Season with basil, and oregano. Cook for 3min, then simmer at medium heat for 6-8min or until half chunky and saucy. Season salt and pepper for your preference.

4. When eggplant is ready, stack them into a tower on small plate and pour the sauce on top of it. Sprinkle with Parmesan Cheese. Serve hot.

Printable 2016 Mini Calendar

I wanted to give it a try making a calendar this year. So! I made a printable mini calendar for my shop! Comes with a little stand so you can display on your office desk or for your home.

Confetti were inspired from one of my illustration with bold colors on corners. Lettering are all handwritten by me.

Halloween 2015

Happy free treat day!

I watched Book of Life this year, so I wanted to use Day of the Dead design elements into this pumpkin. The tool I only had to depend on was a stamp carving tool I had when I was a kid. It was quite challenging that it makes me want to buy proper tools for this purpose.

This did gave me another idea for next year. Can't wait for that now!
Happy Halloween everyone!
