Welcome to my online shop!
My name is Steph and I'm currently located in Winnipeg, Canada. I've been drawing ever since I was 9 years old. I used to pause my VHS tapes of Sailor Moon and Pokemon and try to copy what I saw. When I was a teenager I had aspirations of moving to Japan and becoming a manga artist, like so many young weebs do.
I started Designs by Saka in 2018. I had recently started collecting enamel pins centered around One Direction. There were a lot of options available for Harry Styles, but not many for Niall Horan. I figured I could draw some myself, so I dusted off my old tablet and rediscovered my love for art.
Since then I've expanded to doing enamel pins for all the 1D boys as well as Taylor Swift. I've also brought it back to my original inspirations of Sailor Moon and Pokemon. I've branched out into original artwork and have also created some keychains and prints of my more detailed drawings.
I've also had the opportunity to table in Artist Alley at anime and comic conventions, which was something I wanted to do since I attended my first convention in 2000. I've tabled at Ai-Kon, Comic-Con, and LuckyGirl here in Winnipeg. I've also tabled at FanExpo in Toronto and Sask Expo in Regina.
