Week 13 Artist Interview Shihori Nakayama


Here is some amazing artwork done by Shihori Nakayama.  Nakayama attended Cal State Northridge and is at Cal State Long Beach for her MBA.  She uses imagery based in her life and the people special to her are her inspirations along with Manga.  Her artwork is created from ink and pen.
