Let's celebrate the beginning of 2017 Holiday season with our traveling artists and other members' artworks!

The "Milestone!" is formed by Part 1 - Party - and Part 2 - Market -, and it's a perfect marriage. We hope you can join for both days, but each should represents our unique essences.

The cover artwork had done by our favorite artist, Yuko Nagamori last year, and the title was "Milestone". We just added "!" for the extra excitement.
