It's done - The Leipzig Book Fair 2014

It's all over - last weekend I went to the first Manga Comic Convention, the new Con of the Leipzig Book Fair. It was incredible! The organisation was just amazing and I met so many nice and wonderful people. I am really happy that so many came to visit me and were so nice as to tell me who they were - I am really bad with remembering faces, I sometimes have trouble recognizing myself in the mirror oO

Many of the things I had are completely sold out, but for those of you who couldn't make it to the LBM I will start my Dawanda shop and probably also an Etsy shop during the next weeks. But before that here are some impressions from the wonderful convention.

This was my little table at the LBM. Thanks to the new organisation we finally had enough space and I could easily do my ConHon-entries.

One of the many ConHon entries I did. Cute girls were most people's favourites.
But I could also do some gender bender entries :)
 And this is my lovely Output! Some things I got as presents and some I bought!
Thanks again to everybody for such an amazing convention! I had great fun!!! And I'll keep you posted on all the ConHon entries that I still need to do for I took some work home with me.

Final preparations

Good morning dearies,

it's good that I took a day off in advance of the LBM because there are still some things to do. Here I present you the last pictures before I'm finally on my way to the LBM.

I am really looking forward to it because I am in the mood for cool cosplay, meeting other mangaka and my friends and to experience a great convention. Please visit me at the LBM. I am looking forward to meeting you all!!!

The photographs are showing you some more original ACEOs in one of my favourite styles: scissor cut. All of these can be purchased as originals and most of them also as editions. My cute little Sailors are again helping me :)

ACEOs ... wherever I look ... it's ACEOs

Fhuuuu, I am already a little fed up with all the cutting and editing and glueing and preparing of ACEOs for the Leipzig Book Fair. I feel like I haven't been doing anything else for the last week. Well, in fact, I haven't been doing much else during the last week. But it's almost done. I can see light at the end of the tunnel.

I have already shown you so many new things I did and I'd like to know what you think of them.

How do you like my new ACEOs?
Which of the postcards would you buy?
Would you be wanting one of my free ID postcards?
Which button do you like best?

I really appreciate some feedback :)
Here are some more Pictures of ACEOs for the "Japanese School" topic and pictures of my buttons and postcards :)

Have a lovely Saturday! The sun is shining!!!

More Geisha ACEOs

While I was reading and leafing through a great book I found on Geisha I saw a postcard from the beginning of the 20th century, which showed three Geisha in very well-known postures, namely as the three apes who will neither see, hear nor speak any evil. I loved the idea that people sent each other postcards like this, so I decided that this would make three lovely ACEOs. Here you see the result. They will be available as originals and Editions at the Leipzig Book Fair 2014.

Besides that, here is another Picture I took of the beautiful Geisha in the Gion district of Kyoto.

By the way, this is not a maiko, it's a geiko. You can see that in her different hairstyle and her subtle, very beautiful, but less colourful kimono.

New ACEOs at the LBM

Hello everyone,

I am still working on all the ACEOs for the LBM, but some of them are already finished. I chose topics that I liked and drew several cards on the topic.

The first one I chose was: Geisha. I am a big Geisha admirer and I saw some of them myself when I was in Japan. I also often read books on Geisha, autobiographies as well as monographies, and I love to see old travel postcards from the 19th and 20th century.

From all of this I drew my inspiration for these cards. There are always nine cards for each topic and I have already finished seven from the Geisha topic so there is still work to do :) Here you can see the first four.

And as a special treat I also show you one of the pictures I took in Japan. Aren't they absolutely lovely? They are maiko in the Gion-district of Kyoto.
