New On-Demand: Kawaii Cupcakes

I’ve added a new design to my print-on-demand stores with kawaii cupcakes.

This is another set of illustrations I created for my book, The Super Cute Book of Kawaii. I think one of them is in the book but the rest weren’t used. I recently added some new details and turned them into a repeat pattern too.

Apron & socks from Redbubble, pleated masks from Society6 & Zazzle, stickers from all 4 sites.

They’re available now on loads of fun products at Society6, Redbubble, TeePublic & Zazzle. The cupcakes are spaced out far enough that you get 4 individual stickers/magnets for the price of 1!

All the sites do regular discounts and shipping offers, even internationally, so keep an eye out. Today there’s 30% off tech & office at Society6 and up to 40% off at Zazzle..
