The meaning of: Artist…

Sometimes I do have customers asking me to replicate famous designs like totoro, hello kitty, doremon or even snoopy. Other time I also do have customers who request me to create a design they drew. In fact I can. I can sew any designs I want but I choose not to. Because I feel it is plagiarism.

No matter how famous or infamous the design is, I as an artist choose to only sew my own designs. Because I’m an artist, that’s why I feel I have the responsibility to sew and design my own character. Because I respect myself as an artist, that’s why I respect other artisan works. I respect them enough to not replicate any of their works.

For those who are looking for the right path to become an artist, all I can advise is to grow your own roots as an artist.
