About

Cute & Colorful

Mikarts is the art studio of Denise Hutchins, commonly known by her online alias "Mika". She specializes in creating anime-inspired art and illustrations, including her popular chibi style, in traditional and digital media.

Artist's Statement
"There are two themes that shape the large majority of my art: purity and balance. I'm highly interested in depicting or eliciting pure emotion and utilizing pure, vivid colors. I love creating cute images without conflicting subtext. Balance is present in my work mostly because it's the main principle I live my life by. I don't think relief is as sweet as when it follows intense pain, nor is happiness as strong as when it's accompanied by the memory of loss. Balance is important to one's quality of life, from emotion to physicality, and that idea spills over and saturates many of my artworks, too.

While my main goal is to sell direct copies of my artwork in the form of digital prints, I decided to feature my artwork on merchandise like buttons and greeting cards because it's much more fun to be able to share an image you enjoy by wearing it on your bag or mailing it to a friend with a personal message scrawled on. Buttons in particular are a great way to get your own little prints at an affordable price :3

I hope you enjoy browsing my Etsy shop. Feel free to connect with me online!"

Frequently asked questions

How do you make your pins and magnets?

Pin-back buttons and magnets are designed on Photoshop, printed with archival-quality inks on acid-free paper, punched out, and finally pressed together using a high-quality button press. Each piece is assembled one-at-a-time by hand, never by automation or mass production.

Could you make X number of this item for me? Will I get a discount for ordering that many items?

I am happy to fulfill any size order! Just contact me to set up a custom listing. However, because I must still make each item individually by hand, I cannot offer mass quantity discounts.

How are your prints produced?

Prints are either produced on a non-commercial inkjet printer using ultra premium glossy photo paper and Epson Clarion archival inks or ordered from deviantART's online prints service which uses traditional silver photo-processing on Kodak Edge paper. Prints are stamped on the back for copyright purposes.

Can you sign the print before sending it to me?

Yes, of course! Be sure to request it when you check out. Just state that you would like the print to be signed and indicate whether you want the signature on the front or the back.

How do your put together your bookmarks?

Bookmarks are first printed on a non-commercial inkjet printer using professional grade semi-gloss photo paper and Epson Clarion archival inks. After cutting each bookmark from the full printed sheet, the corners are rounded and a hole is punched at the top for the ribbon tassel. Ribbon tassels are tied on and and their ends are heat-sealed to prevent fraying. They may differ in color or pattern from those pictured but will always be artfully coordinated to the bookmark design. Bookmarks are labeled on the back for copyright purposes.

Are your bookmarks laminated?

No. High-quality lamination is not within my budget. I believe it's better to maintain the integrity of the artwork rather than cover it with shoddy lamination. Please don't go swimming with your Mikarts bookmark!

How are your greeting cards made?

Greeting cards are produced on a non-commercial inkjet printer using heavyweight coated cardstock and Epson Clarion archival inks unless otherwise stated in the item's listing. They will have a printed copyright notice on the back. All cards come with a matching, mailable envelope.

How do you prepare items for shipping?

Pin-back buttons and magnets will be wrapped in bubble wrap for protection. Prints, bookmarks, and cards will be packaged with a cardboard slip and the packaging will be stamped to prevent bending or folding. All items are shipped in 9x6" yellow kraft paper envelopes unless the order is too large to fit. Overly large orders will be shipped either in a 9x12" envelope or in a corrugated cardboard box, as appropriate.

Can you overnight my order with USPS Express shipping?

Unfortunately, every order I have shipped via USPS Express in the past has not arrived in the amount of time it was supposed to, causing disappointment and hassle for both my customers and me. It has not been a reliable service so I no longer offer Express shipping.
