Hello, my name is Shirley! I've been drawing, creating merch, and exhibiting at conventions since 2014. I love to create K-pop inspired merch and merch for anime/manga/game series that I love as well! I also aspire to create more original artwork alongside my fanart. I hope you can recognize the all the love and dedication I put into my artwork ♥
As for my ARMY life, I've been an ARMY since July 2018 (FAKE LOVE era)! I love BTS from the bottom of my heart, and a lot of what you see on my shop exists out of the love and inspiration that they give me. Now I love lots of K-pop groups, and I'm fully embracing the multi-stan life. More groups that I like include TWICE, Stray Kids, TOMORROW X TOGETHER, BLACKPINK, SEVENTEEN, NewJeans, EXO, aespa, and SHINee, just to name a few! I aspire to make more merch for all these groups.
I've hosted BTS cupsleeve events in Toronto and London, and I've participated as a vendor in Los Angeles and Chicago. I tabled at my first K-pop convention, K-PLAY FEST, in Los Angeles too. I honestly would never have imagined when I first got into BTS that my artwork would take me to so many places. You can check out my event page to see all the upcoming events I'll be at.
I consider my shop to be like my baby. I'm constantly working behind the scenes to design new merch, expanding my skills, and putting in time and energy to help it grow. I would like to sincerely thank everyone who has supported my shop! You are the reason why I keep it going!
Thank you for checking out my shop!

BTS: Jimin, Yoongi
EXO: Kyungsoo, Chanyeol, Baekhyun
SVT: Woozi and Hoshi
For girl group members, I don't tend to have a bias. I really love them all!
