Featured Maker- ScrawnyGirl

In 2015 we are introducing many of our favorite makers, indie artists, and small businesses. This week's featured maker is a kawaii artist that I'm obsessed with, ScrawnyGirl.

You may remember Shawna from her first feature here, and I'm happy to bring you an update on her shop!

What do you create, and how did you get started?
I create kawaii vibes with wearable art, inspirational prints + stickers. I'm pretty much taking over the world and making it cute.

My love affair with art and all things cute began at an early age with the influences of Hello Kitty + Lisa Frank. I later went on to graduate from ASU with a BFA in Studio Art, even though my art was considered "too cute" by my professors. Scrawny Girl made its online debut in November of 2013 via Storenvy where I began selling dolls, doing custom illustration work for several small businesses + starting the sticker of the month club.

What three words describe your shop?
quirky, cute, whimsical

How do you celebrate reaching your goals?
Coffee, sweets (including but not limited to: cupcakes, french macarons, Pocky, + gelato), a little retail therapy, and sometimes just watching anime with Asian take out (I love all Asian food, but I love love kimchi!).

Which other makers inspire you?
I am super inspired by Mab Graves (, her art is amazing and mind blowing. My goal is to own at least one of her pieces by the end of the year. Fingers crossed for a Sailor Moon piece!

What is one thing you couldn't live without?
Sadly, I can't live without my iPhone...I use it for everything (mostly taking pictures of my kiddo) and running my business. Even though I love how easy it makes life, I do put it down and live life (that's one of my pet peeves is people on their phones all the time).

Share your current business goals
My current goals are growth, community + an aesthetic that screams Scrawny Girl. Also, world domination.

I just launched my new website- Thankfully I was able to get my domain moved so no one has to update any of their feeds! Woot!
