Recently smiiliimoon, on YouTube, asked me how to draw Kawaii. What is Kawaii (pronounced a bit like Hawaii) ? Kawaii is the Japanese word for cute but it has also come to mean a soft cute style of illustration too.
Many have asked me to draw this before. I thought maybe it was a bit childish, but then I realised that when I went to Japan, Kawaii is just about all I bought as gifts and souvenirs! I’m beginning to see it as a serious art form… crazy but serious!
So, as it is Easter this weekend, I thought I would draw an egg and turn it into a Cute Kawaii Easter Chick. I hope you like it. If you do, let me know as I’ve now got all sorts of ideas going round in my head.. What would you like me to turn into Kawaii?
I’m off to visit the Sir James Henderson School in Milan next week. It was all sorted, then EasyJet cancelled my filiht back to Bristol Airport. I then had to rebook with British Airways. Their flights suited me down to the ground, although I had to stay over at Heathrow the night before to catch the cheap early flight, it meant I got the rest of the day to have a look around.
Then cam the dreaded email from BA, this week, to tell be the flights had been cancelled because of the strike.
My brain is not working too well today, but I’ve managed to rebook. I’m now flying from East Midlands! I’m hoping that it’s third time lucky and everything will go nice and smoothly this time… cross fingers for me!
