Welcome to Fan Art Fridays! Each Friday I will sketch fan art of an anime/manga character. Sometimes it will be sketches of scenes from anime/manga and some will be original fan art. Original fan art will have the black and white version that’s publicaly posted and a colored version available to MyPatreon members! For the first piece, I sketched chibi Gintama! This isn’t an original, I sketched it freehand from an image I found. If you like my work be sure to check out our art gallery!
Yesterday, Cameron created the “intro” to be placed at the beginning of all of our videos once we start vlogging! Apparently he found where we can get music that isn’t copyrighted which was very helpful. It’s a cute little intro, upbeat and bubbly! Goes with the mood of our videos since we’re totally a cutesy couple. Haha.
It’s really exciting to see our business come together one step at a time. We’ve been talking about creating a channel and blogging for a couple years now. We love exploring places, food, and entertainment so why not blog and vlog about it, right? Do we want to become part of the Youtuber community and make money that way? Yes that is our goal. We know it will take a couple years or longer for that even to happen but we are determined. We follow a lot of youtubers who do similiar things to get ideas and tips of what makes people want to watch a youtuber who reviews things like this. I’m happy with our blog is going so far, we’ve gotten some decent traffic since we started on May 2nd. Almost 150 views so far! Sure, that’s very small but its exciting for me anyway!
It’s just really thrilling to see an idea start to become real. When Cameron showed me the intro he made I got giddy and excited. It’s happening. It’s really happening. We’re doing this and our future is exciting to think about. Cameron and I both already have experience with travel. Growing up, my parents took my brother and I on vacation every summer. I had been to 33 states before the age of 16. I’ve seen the Grand Canyon, Disney World, and New York City. I’m from Los Angeles originally, so I’ve been to a lot of tourist spots down there. Before Cam lost his job (for medical reasons we’re still dealing with currently) we traveled to the Oregon Coast every August for our anniversary and to see my parents. Cameron was a navy brat so he’s been to some interesting places across the United States. Sadly, traveling out of the country is not something him and I have had the pleasure of doing. We hope in a few years we’ll be able to take pictures from the Tokyo Skytree, walk along the London Bridge, and see the highlands of Scotland. We want to see the world and share our experiences with everyone.
Another part of our business will also be our art and crafts. I do have a gallery set up on our site, so if you haven’t seen my work yet, be sure to check it out here. I drew our logo! The anime cat girl is going to be our mascot. Hehe. Cameron is creative too so expect a gallery of his own work also. Some of the items we give away in contests will be created by us, so you’ll get something totally unique! We also will be selling our work once we’ve created a enough merchandise!
Those of you who follow us, we can use all the support we can get! Be sure to share our blog on social media! Also, send us any recommendations for stuff you’d like us to check out and review! We really love feedback so any tips on how we can improve and draw in more readers would definitely be appreciated!

My husband and I put our heads together and came up with a simple logo for our channel. I don’t have much of a sketch to show, but this is what I have so far. Cameron said it was important to keep it something simple and easy to draw. It’s just a rough sketch so it looks crappy now but it will look better once it’s finished!
