I'm Michi, you may know me as xMichiyo or IB_xMichiyo on different social media platforms.
I am a full-time freelance artist & part time Twitch streamer.
My specialties are furry themed digital commissions and embroidered patches, all under the name "Imagination Boutique".
I'm making some big changes to things in 2023. A shift of focus. As a result, we are not planning on vending at ANY convention tables in the foreseeable future. Convention preparation takes a lot of focus away from other aspects of my business and deeply affects my mental health and well being. Keep in mind that almost all of my items are handmade, thus convention prep takes me a lot longer than one might think at first. Don't get me wrong, I love it! It's just too much right now and I need an extended break from it for personal reasons.
Streaming is something that I officially started in December of last year, and it's already going very well. I grow every stream and am having a lot of fun with it. This will be the replacement focus instead of convention prep. I generally plan on streaming about twice a week, since this is only a part of what I do. I may go for more in the future once I'm more comfortable with it.
When I'm not streaming or working on paid work, I want to shift some focus back into making new merch designs! It's been a while since we've had much that's new in the shop and I want to prioritize that this year as well.
To everyone who has been there for me, thank you so, so, SO much. It absolutely means the world to me to have the support that I do. I wouldn't have made it this far without that and I appreciate it every single day. ♥
