Last time we introduced paper cutouts and stickers, ita-goods you could make without using your PC. This time we are going to make high quality full color goods using the computer and printer you have at home. In order to draw full color graphics on your PC you need a paint application, however, this doesn’t mean you are going to have to buy one. There are many free paint programs available, moreover the paint and Excel software that came with your computer can make a fine drawing application. It’s important to choose software that suits you. Finally, bring your enthusiasm plus a character that you love and let’s get making!
Get ready to level up your ita-goods making ability!

Asian Kawaii Style - Vol.8: Naii from Thailand
"Kawaii" culture having been born out of Japan has slowly begun to make its way across the world, especially throughout Asia. Japan’s "kawaii" culture doesn’t stop with just fashion but can even be applied to cosmetics, accessories, small items and many other goods and is a concept that is gaining popularity throughout Asia, with the word "kawaii" even being commonly used in these various countries. Today, we even see many girls in Asia that show interest in Japanese fashion!
From all over Asia including China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Korea, and Thailand we would like to take a look at what “kawaii styles” these girls recommend in this editorial section of “My Kawaii.” With such differing backgrounds, cultures, environments, and languages will these girls’ concepts of “kawaii” be as different as they are from each other? With these introductions we hope to find out!
Each installment consists of 4 pages: “My profile,” “My Style,” “My Kawaii1,” & “My Kawaii 2”
