Shishido Creative is made up of Mandy + Taka, two passionate illustrators that love to create timelessly beautiful art and fashion accessories. Mandy and Taka met in Tokyo, Japan in 2017 and have since gone through such a wild ride all in the name of love. After a whirlwind adventure of romance and hardships, going back and forth between the beautiful Pacific Northwest and Japan, these two have finally settled down in Seattle, WA.
Hailing from Japan, Taka is a tebori artist (Japanese traditional tattoo artist) by trade with a background in graphic design. His eclectic interests include working out, Visual Kei, street fashion, sneakers and sunglasses, hip hop, pretty bad early 2000s American rock, slasher movies, ukiyo-e art, kimono patterns, traditional Japanese tattoos, fluffy cats + wicked rats, karaoke, and riding motorcycles. He hates social media and big crowds.
Together they are basically vampires who are up til dawn toiling away all night on designs you'll love and sleeping in til late afternoon.
