Hello! I’m Shouri, I’m a graphic designer & illustrator, and I looove comics. Right now I’m working on two which I’m publishing online (webcomics!):

Can a single photograph awaken Marian’s own dream in life? A journey in self-discovery awaits, not only Marian, but all her friends as well. Updates twice a week, every Tuesday and Thursday.

This vertical four panel (known as Yon-koma) comic tells the stories of Chop Chop Ninja Doom, the ninja with an unhealthy obsession with potato chips, & Chocobanana Sofuto, the former olympic swimmer who is obsessed with cleaning. Together with their pets, Boo & Sushi, they’ll spread love all over the world!

Lovely idea! Cheers! :D
