Hello there! I am Lichia, the artist behind Gotamago. I'm pleased to meet you.
I was trained as a landscape architect, and worked in urban planning and design for several years. After spending the entire day in the office drafting on the computer, drawing and making things with my hands became a necessary outlet for my creativity. I have always been a huge stationery junkie, and so it was natural that I gravitated towards designing cards and invitations. In 2007, when Etsy and the handmade revolution was just taking off, I acquired a Gocco press and fell in love. At the time, I was also devouring all things Japan-related, and "tamago" (meaning "egg") was the first word I learned in Japanese. When I began to receive inquiries about where to buy my gocco-printed cards, I impulsively decided to open an Etsy shop, and Gotamago was born.
In 2013, after years of traveling and working abroad in Japan, California, Taiwan and China, I returned to Toronto and picked up Gotamago where I left off. I am inspired by urbanity, nature, and the simplicity of everyday things. My drawings combine a love for travel and culture with a sense of continual discovery. I especially love sketching while I travel; many of my best drawings were produced on-site in a moleskine sketchbook, with a fountain pen, a portable water brush, and a travel pack of watercolours.
Gotamago has evolved over the years, and I am proud that my cards continue to be made with high attention to quality and detail. Every design has a personal story, and is delivered from the heart. Nothing makes me happier than seeing a customer pick up a Gotamago card and chuckle with delight!
