Hi everyone! I'm finally done with my painting! It's taken me about 2 months to actually finish. 

It's called, LA Ice Cream. I might change my mind later. 

I wanted to illustrate the effects of social media on how we view food, especially desserts. I decided to paint a ridiculous ice cream, complete with a churro sticking out from the side, a sparkler, candy sticks, and a sad looking Starbucks Unicorn Frap on top. 

I almost got that silly Unicorn Frap, by the way, just for the photo. I'm glad I didn't, because I heard it tasted really bad and was like 1500 calories. 


P.S. A lot of the times, Japanese people use these red block stamps instead of writing in signatures. For example, my grandma always stamps our family name when we get mail delivered, instead of signing it with a pen. The stamps are usually custom made. Unless your last name is really common, then you can find yours at the drug store, kind of like reading glasses. 

So, I changed my signature to the first character of my name written in Japanese, written in the red stamp style. Being half Japanese is a huge part of my identity and I wanted people to know. And it reminds me of my childhood.
