I still keep in touch with my former professors, so unbeknownst to me, I jumped into the whole mesh idea confident. Yeah... taking longer than expected to make one simple outfit, because everything I learned in college is the opposite with SecondLife... any who. Still working, going through all sorts of emotions with Maya. When i'm done, I am sooo making better, clearer tutorials than what I have had to watch. Srsly.

I did the whole Marketplace migration. Was confusing at first until Dakota put it in great perspective:

Much love!

Back from a very merry Ohio vaycay!

So, a week of my sister visiting, then 2.5 days of driving, 2 weeks of visiting in Ohio, and another 2.5 days driving home... I can't begin to explain how antsy I am to get back to work (and stoked to be out of the car!!). Still, you know, laundry, grocery shopping, turning the water back on, etc.. you know. That fun 'adult' stuff you have to do to get your household in order before the week starts.
Anyway, entertaining the masses, I did manage to find time to doodle this with markers and ink. The snowscape fascinated me for 4 days and then I wanted my Vegas desert back lol :)


Starting Monday all the merchandise in my mainstore location will be removed and the store itself will go through a transformation. You can still purchase my Eastern themed clothing on the Second Life Marketplace: click here
In the meantime, I will be a busy bee!
As always, if ya see me online in-world, say hello! ^__^

A few things I've been working on. I'm about to start working on some men's shirts. I haven't put anything up for sale yet. I'd like to have some jeans done first... hehe and upon a friend's request, mesh belts and accessories. Taking forever getting used to how 'different' things are in SL. :)

Mesh...


Well... I went to the Art Institute of Las Vegas, Media Arts & Animation, to learn this stuff... I don't think anyone loves Maya or zBrush. More of a love/hate relationship. Always user-error though ;)

Anyway, the more I research what's new in Second Life, the more i'm realizing mesh is hot. However, some people don't relish the idea of changing their shape yet...? What to do, what to do...

I personally like the mesh. I looooove it. My friend, Max of LOGO, and his new Chloe line. Homg peanut butter jelly time awesome. Redgrave really has some fantastic mesh clothes, too.

I made a pemplum shirt yesterday. I'm really picky to the point of OCD now on texturing. It was a combo of old and new. This is one of those shirts i'd say would have to be full mesh, otherwise it reminds me of the old school flexi prim skirts textured, attached to the spine, with a regular shirt.


lol Not cool. I could've spent more time on it... but the overall texturing is kind of like nails on a chalkboard to me.… Read the rest

Essentials Beginning

A few sketches of what's in my mind. I found inspiration everywhere, really. I live in Vegas, best place, right?
If anything, hopefully you enjoy my ragtag sketches and look forward to the actual line of clothing.

Black Friday is over, so is Cyber Monday... but don't forget about Giving Tuesday! I plan on donating to Goodwill as usual, but also my favorite local charity, Opportunity Village.

Then I make ze clothes!

It's been a while. Art school kept me busy. Pwwahhhh
I'm still too much of an entrepreneur. So here I am ;)
I put a lot of thought into what kind of content I wanted to make first... went inworld and found myself digging through old clothes. Dissatisfied, I went secret and not so secret shopping. Nothing suits my style. I mean, not to insult the talented clothiers inworld, everything I bought just wasn't "me."
I guess art school does that to you, especially fashion designers... ^__~
So, starting tomorrow, I am sketching out designs for a line of clothing i'm just going to call "the essential basics" for now. No mesh yet. Well maybe. It really depends where my sketches take me. My mind takes me down roads in art I didn't expect to take. Getting something out there before my 2 week vaycay to visit my inlaws in Ohio (I knooooow! Ermahgerd. Cherry got married in RL!), plus I have some acrylic painting to do. Getting ready to open an Etsy shop and participate in gallery sales.… Read the rest

New CTK locations + ongoing sale

I've always had two locations, but both sims went under renovation within the last month. So with the addition of my new main location in the lovely Eventide Far East Sim, I have two other smaller locations in the Kyoto Bakumatsu Sim, and the Blue Lotus Sim.


Kyoto Bakumatsu


Blue Lotus

All three sims are gorgeous. The Blue Lotus and Kyoto Bakumatsu sims are both Japanese themed and have quite an impressive atmosphere if you're interested in checking them out.
The Eventide Far East Sim is home to Kin Keiko's hair store and Polly and Max's skin store, Logo. The atmosphere here is very sophisticated and upscale. Gah.. not to mention i'm sandwiched between two favorite stores of mine since forever ago... I couldn't ask for more. :))


Eventide Far East

Enough Chatty Cathy from me. hehe :)

My sale is still going on now through Sunday at my main location.

Stuff marked down as low as 50L. I should totally buy a wacky inflatable arm flailing tube man for this.

It's been a while since I was active with my CTK brand. Between school and my personal life, 2010 was quite the busy year.
As most of my followers know, I have always gone the traditional route when styling my shop. With the new decade I will be ushering in a more modern store layout.
Stay tuned! In a few days I will unveil the new location and images of the new store. As for the grand renovation reopening for CTK, I will also be having a sale.
Happy New Year everyone!

Psuedo Back

Hey Everyone,

It's been one heck of a school year. I started a game club on campus, joined the Student Government as head of my degree plan, and i've had projects out the wazoo. Well, it's Winter break. And I have decided to start producing while I have the chance. One of the projects I will be working on over the break will be skin. I'm going to start with geisha skins. I'm also planning on rolling out some new clothes. So when I get bored and/or frustrated with my attempt in making skins, I will have something else to work on. Lucky for me we have an awesome Mac Lab on campus with 32 in Cintiq monitors!
So just as an official announcement, I am back and will get started this Thursday. If you're online and say hey. :)

Raising a city…

Hey everyone!
After a long hiatus, I came back but hadn't really started to update my blog. So here goes :)

I've started work to build a city that is modeled after a late Heian period/early Edo period Japanese castle town. It will also house my new mainstore location. Yes.. hehe expanding again. :) Just finished building/texturing the Castle Friday, here are some preview photos. I'll keep you posted as I go along. I do have plans to start new clothing projects after the city is built but until then this is taking up 100% of my time! ^__^
