Kawaii Home Office

My Kawaii Home Office Desk

Today I’d like to show you my tiny kawaii home office. My favourite waste of time is looking at other people’s interiors (or just bluntly peeking through windows) and I hope you’ll enjoy this post ^_^. This is the place where I dutifully code websites, design stuff and update kao-ani. Metin and I both work from the living room, because otherwise we would hardly see each-other. Luckily my desk is near the front window, so I can also use it to take pictures on. It’s actually a dining table combined with a simple drawer unit, which gives me enough room to make a mess work.

The wall shelf from Ikea has been on my wishlist for a long time. It’s probably not trendy anymore, but I really like the robust style. On it I keep some of my Blythes (I have multiple, somehow you can’t just have one…), plants and kawaii Japanese items. I’ve attached a hanger to it that holds my newly made necklaces for the kawaii jewelry shop, which I badly need to update.

The cute box on my desk was a gift from Irene and holds many necklace charms. They are being guarded by Nuthugger, my much coveted vinyl toy by Seonna Hong.

Somehow I always end up buying sweet stationery even though the notebooks are almost too pretty to use. I’ve been making sketches in this San-X notebook with new DIY ideas. They just kept coming and I hope that they’ll translate well to Illustrator. Now all I need is more time on my hands…

Expectations vs. Reality

So this is what happens when the Magic Mouse gives you a mild case of RSI and you head to the local hardware store for a regular mouse (the 80’s are calling). And while I try to work with it Catootje extends herself from her huge pillow, trying to persuade me to pet her. Life is hard.

The Wonderful Sugar Art of Carlos Lischetti

Carlos Lischetti Sugar Art

As you might have noticed I’ve got a bit of a sweet tooth, combined with a love for cute characters. So I was blown away when I saw the sugar art of Carlos Lischetti. His creations from sugarpaste look perfect, almost as if they are characters in a 3D movie.

Carlos and his twin brother Elio have been working with clay ever since they were little. I’ve also been playing with Play Dough together with my twin sister, but somehow the clay ended up as sad brownish lumps… So I guess the Lischetti brothers were more talented from the get go  Wink . Later on Carlos started making cakes, got a job at a bakery and nowadays he gives workshops all around the world.

At the present the brothers are still working together. Elio (who works as an animator) creates the characters that Carlos turns into sugar art, you can see an example of this proces pictured above.

Have a look this tutorial (page 6) if you would like to make the ballerina above. It’s in Spanish, but I think the pictures speak for themselves. Carlos has published two DIY books called “Animation in Sugar” & “Animation in Sugar: Take 2” and you can drool over more of his work on his blog.
