    It’s like a weird mix of spooky and cute

  • I can’t tell you how long I’ve been waiting for you to post this artist! 3rd one down is up there as one of my favorite paintings of all time.

  • I really admire Hikari, the way she uses colours and lights, it blows my mind of love

  • Jayce McCue

    Amazing work! Her art reminds me of Yoshitomo Nara’s stuff.
