#Katie Woodger #Bye Bye 2012 #Japan #Illustration #Playful Promises
So 2012 is almost over! In terms of art it’s been a quiet year for me. I was really happy to see my illustrations feature on the Playful Promises gift tins that came out this year. Thank you again to the staff at Playful Promises!
From January till July this year I was working really hard completing my teacher training, which was very time consuming and stressful.
I had a great holiday in August in the USA and after that I got some extra teaching qualifications so that I could teach abroad and thankfully all the hard work paid off as I got a new job as a teacher starting in March 2013 in Tokyo Japan!
In the later part of this year I also did some really exciting things including:
- Helping my friend and artist Elena/ Yamino at London MCMEXPO on her stall both in May and October.
- Going to DisneyWorld and Universal Studios and getting to act like a kid again!
- Attending London ‘Hyper Japan’ in cosplay (Sailor Mars)
- Seeing Lady Gaga and Angelspit in concert again.
- Meeting my favourite Korean actor Lee Byung Hun at the London Korean film festival closing Gala.
- Seeing the Kpop group BIGBANG live in London at Wembley arena, which I can honestly say is the best concert I have ever been to. It was AMAZING!
I will still be using this tumblr to post any art I do whilst in Japan. I am sure there will be many exciting places to go sketching!
I will be documenting all my adventures in Japan on a blog which I will set up soon. I’ve got a really good feeling about 2013 and I can’t wait for it to begin! Happy New Year!

For an exhibition in London I made some ink paintings inspired by Japanese Street Fashion in Harajuku. Many of the images were inspired by the ‘Street Snaps’ from the Japanese fashion magazine KERA. The image above is just one of these. There are more to come!
Sorry about the text over the image but I am sick of people taking my images and blogging them all over tumbr without any credit.
