  • Surfing Pikachu

    This piece was one of my biggest projects when I first started a few years ago. The surfing Pikachu mini-game in Pokémon Yellow was one of my favorite things in the game, and the score screen was really great, so I really wanted to make a piece to remember it by.

  • Taneshima Popura

    Popura Taneshima was my absolute favorite character from the anime “Working!!,” so when I got the 1/8th figure by Alter, I absolutely had to take a great photo of it. She is definitely one of my favorite figures in my collection!

  • Purple Heart - Hyperdimension Neptunia

    Purple Heart was one of my first figure photos, so this photo holds a special place in my heart since it’s one of my favorite photos and also one of my favorite figures.

  • Black Rock Shooter

    Black Rock Shooter is one of my favorite anime. Making Perler Bead sprites of them was really fun!

  • Here Comes Team Rocket!

    “Here Comes Team Rocket!” is another one of my bigger pieces that was very fun to make, since I was able to combine two of my favorite things, Perler Beads and Pokémon.

About Us


Perler Bead Art and Figure Photography / United States

I started working with Perler Beads back in 2009, when I came across dozens of amazing creations online. I started with small pieces, and gradually started creating more and more, amassing quite a collection of bead art pieces. Soon after, I started also collecting figures from Japan, which later led to me picking up figure photography in addition to still doing Perler Bead art.

My goal is to share my hobbies with others who also enjoy similar passions. I hope that all of you enjoy my works and continue to follow me as I continue to create new works.
