About Us

Shishido Creative is made up of Mandy + Taka, two passionate illustrators that love to collect and admire cute, cool and creepy art and fashion accessories. Mandy and Taka met in Japan and have since had the pleasure of traveling around North America and Asia.

Raised in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, Mandy is a freelance graphic designer running Miss Mandible Designs. She loves cute things, Sailor Moon, bunnies, pin up + psychobilly culture, art nouveau, ukiyo-e, neo-traditional tattoos, and sci-fi books + movies.

Hailing from Japan, Taka is a tebori artist (Japanese traditional tattoo artist) by trade with a background in graphic design. His eclectic interests include early 2000s American rock (nu-metal, screamo, alternative), hip-hop, horror movies, ukiyo-e art, traditonal tattoos, cats + rats, and riding motorcycles. He hates social media and big crowds.

Together they enjoy eating tasty food (doesn’t everyone though?), going to theme parks, museums, gardens, riding on Taka’s motorcycle, driving Mandy’s car late at night, watching movies and making art.
