How Japan Inspired Me To Create My Own Pastel Wonderland

I'm Denise (surudenise) and I am an Artist/Illustrator based in Germany and Japan. I spent most of my youth drawing, crafting and watching all kinds of different movies which eventually led me to go to art school and pursue a creative career professionally, focusing on traditional art and art history. However, after graduating, I've found myself stuck in an art block and didn't really create anything for two years, finding it hard to feel inspired to create something I was happy with.
