Itsmikki Studio – The inspirational studio writer http://www.itsmikkistudio.com

The home of Itsmikki Studio is finally here. After 9 years of not blogging that long, I finally take step closer to a higher challenge is to face the public relations.

Hoping someday that I will find more answers to my questions where I am embarking a new journey with full of surprises. What is more waiting for me is to get a whole of audience out there and be inspired of my writings.

I am not so-good-writer you could tell about. But I am willing to learn more in the field of languages including English, of course. I could tell this studio will open more categories and posts about the home-wide studio.

Why Itsmikki the name I choose?

After 9 years of being happiness is not close to a big deal, it is not the name I bring. But of course, there will be another production of more stories to come. Itsmikki Studio is now officially a home of my collection that I will make short stories, art and literature, and of course, the production of character designs and backgrounds as well. (Read furthermore of About Mikki).

A studio will open more surprises of adventure, horror and other stories as well. Just read and tell what is in your mind. You will read other my unique short stories that I will feature in my site. Just be careful with the term of down syndrome. Because I am the owner of the site which it is happened to be that I have down syndrome. Be polite to question about me. Try me to talk in a typical way and engage me in a friendly conversation. Be patient and give time to absorb what I am saying. And treat me with respect also.
