☆please scroll to bottom of journal for info on my comics, classes, commissions and other accounts~☆


WOW! I apologize for the absence of uploads and updates these past months!

I recently got a new part-time position as a social media promoter for an American manga publisher, and have also been doing more Japanese-English translating work than before both for the Huffington Post and for GEN Manga.
I'll leave links below to the articles and books I've been working on!

I still have a variety of art projects going on (including a prospective large mural), but have not had time as of late to get much uploaded onto any of my sites. Unfortunately, due to the time consuming nature of my other work at the moment, Farewell Feeling is on a hiatus.

I hope you will continue to watch and follow me here and on my Tumblr website as I am trying to return to having more of an online presence again. I may even revive my Twitter soon! It's a new year; anything is possible!

As promised, here are the links to the Huffington articles I translated:

1) Japan in the aftermath of the tsunami:…
2) Unusual recipes for using extra mochi:…
3) The giant old man in Japan's sky:…
4) Cat learns to use a toilet:…

And these are the GEN Manga books I have been working on:

1) Anomal:…
2) Kamen 02:…
3) Stones of Power:…

Some of my work for GEN Manga (such as their online-only Eden series) has not yet been put into print form but can be read on

The usual links for commission information and classes are still below; and I am still available for both if you or someone you know is interested!

Thank you for your patience, and I hope you are all having a fabulous 2015 so far.

(Also: I am going to try and go through my backed up dA messages soon, but if you wrote to me and never heard back please feel free to poke me again or (more direct and sure to get a reply) email me at! )

Hello, my artist alley friend! So good to see you again at AUSA! I tried to find you while I was in costume, but since I never did, here's a link to a photo of me on Flickr . I've been taking a break from AA so I can work on my Hanako-san graphic novel (for which you can see some pictures here… ) I've got a complete script finally--now if I can only find some advisors on Japanese culture to read it!

Hey Lily. It's me DiamondRoseKISS. As in Kristin. This is my new account. I had to make a new one because I don't have membership and I wanted to change my username. If you get this message, feel free to add me to your watch! Also I just posted a journal. Please read it and hopefully get others to read it as well. I hope to make art soon!....

Hey Lily (please excuse my oh-so-terrible intro)!
It's Haven from your manga art class and private lessons. I awkwardly stumbled across your art on dA and thought, "I have seen that before, oh my gosh it's Lily." Haha. Well, anyway, of course I started watching you (that sounds... creepy) and I just wanted to say hey.
