Dearest Reader,​​

Mintandapple started as a tiny table at an anime convention, selling small prints and laminated paper keychains. Over the years, I’ve nurtured and grown it into a platform for me to realize illustrations and products that previously only existed as doodles in my sketchbook. I draw a lot of influence from Japanese fairy kei and lolita fashion; not only has it managed to fill up my closet, but also my art. And of course, my four bunnies are a large source of my inspiration as well. 

We produce designs considering the final products in mind; as a result, each illustration in our shop is uniquely tailored to the product it embodies. I hope each order is filled with items that you’ll find both functional and aesthetically pleasing. 

For the 7 years I've been selling my art at conventions across the country, I've learned that nothing beats the feeling of sparking joy for someone through my art. My wish is that through mintandapple, I can more easily bring this joy to even more people. 

<3, Nina
