  1. Oh what gorgeous happy colours – very Chiaki :) And I adore that tray – amazing!

  2. I’ve read all Junji’s ‘Museum of Terror’ books there amazing the art work is so creepy and the stories are great! :D x

  3. Each of these is beautiful, great choices! I’m so glad you featured a comic book and a manga, there is so much variety to this art and a good stroke of pencil has always been my favourite story telling tool :D

  4. I love the tea tray! I wouldn’t mind eating my breakfast from that in the morning :) The origami globes are so good! I love the colours, and I wish I had tha talent to make something like that! xx

    • It’s gorgeous isn’t it. I wouldn’t mind eating my breakfast from that in the morning either! I’m thinking about giving the origami globes a go but I doubt I would have the patience if it’s fiddly. ;) xx

  5. Hi, what an amazing tray! Is it for sale?
