Silly Oldies

while looking through some old shop files to reference for my new shop,
i found some diary doodles from 2004-05, which is around when i first
started drawing for fun aside from working as a freelance toy designer,
& also when i launched my first site,

these were short-lived, maybe only 4-5 months, and the diaries soon turned into
a daily food blog, which i later moved to my current food blog.

most of the diary drawings were small emoticon-like characters like above,
or about food like below :

and some about machinery mishaps with computer, printer,
and sewing machine... :

so weird & kind of fun to see old diaries.

i remember i had some weird character comics (momo, the peach girl &
moogie, her smartass kitty) and pdf print-outs you could color or make into
paper dolls. i guess i really was a toy designer back then!
