This is my entry for Travel Write Draw's 'Illustrators Drawing Illustrators Project' initiated and organised by the beautiful Meagan Morrison.

The portrait is of Mara Cespon, fashion illustrator, who blogs at I tried to capture her interest in Japanese fashion by making it look kawaii with the pose (one of my favourite pictures of her is the one where she was pouting). I'm kinda liking how it turns out. I hope Mara likes it too!

The very talented Veronika Horrocks will illustrate me and I'm so excited to see it. Also can't wait to see what others will come out with! Everyone will post their works on their respective blogs on 11th January, so watch out for their updates.

Thank you Meagan for organising this project!

Edit: This is a repost as I accidentally deleted the original post and the comments are ALL gone too! =(
