Midnight inks

A random stress-relief drawing I made one night I was feeling physically and mentally tired. I was listening to muse on shuffle, and for each song I made a drawing based on the rythm and what I felt from the melody.
(I can't remember which song was this one, though).

News are... that I am afraid that my laptop is dying. I really don't have luck with computers and technology, it seems... so I am restricting my access on internet via laptop (but am browsing on ipod instead), and it feels like I am missing out a lot of things.

Imagine how I freaked out when my laptop took ten whole minutes to turn on / turn off and almost froze over photoshop ? I guess that toning the last pages of Paperplane will take a little bit longer, and I apologize for this. :(
Right now, I am in the middle of doing my last portfolio (as I can) that is due in four days and well... isn't very advanced due to many things OTL.....
I am still in a comic-creativity block ; I really must stop asking myself too many questions and JUST DO IT.

Sorry everyone who reads this blog, it must be tiring to read so many negative entries lately ; to be honest, I am feeling exhausted - art-wise, family-wise, a lot of issues going on - but going to Canada from May 22nd to June 9th will make me change of air and (hopefully) give me an occasion to rest mentally. I will be at Montreal, Toronto (available either on Friday or Sunday at AN), and will have a small trip to NYC !

Hoping that better days will eventually come;
thank you guys for keeping up with me.

  • Paperplane
Long time no see !

Tonight, I just realized that it had been almost a month (okay more something like 2 weeks but still asdfg) that I haven't updated anything on internet... ;__; sorwy a lot happened, I had portfolios to make, orals to pass, (and I am still in it but it's going to finish soon !) and um... I had periods in which I was suddenly so hyped up to make comic books but the next day, feeling so down because I couldn't make anything. >:'U

Well, the good news is that I finally finished inking my paperplane sidestory that I had let aside for two months, but the less good news is that now that the temperature is rising up, I can't work in my room and my laptop overheats easily (aka blackscreen once in a while, it's really annoying ~__~;;) ... I still have issues with Photoshop and typesetting so it will be hard in the future orz.


Accompanied with a good rose and lychee tea, at your service !!

After discovering wai and her awesome handmade books / screenprints and all, I really got motivated into making my own handmade stuff. And comic books.

So today, at the market I hunted things like those :


I am so happy I found them because the colors are quite striking. Now I need to find something to make with it ^3^ but I'm gonna make a stock of fabrics and things like that !! Gotta learn how to use my hands more.(and more ways to express creativity *coughcough*) ; I've always admired people who could make their own books, or sell very awesome looking special boxes and goodies along with their comic books...

Also, I have been very unsatisfied with my drawings lately - which is why I don't have many pictures to show ): - but I'm really motivated to learn more about anatomy, perspective, use of colors and comicking. A little drawing I made of fashionista Atsushi here. I think I should browse more fashion sites, it is really inspiring 8D


*cough* Some people were curious to see my shelves, so umm.. have an (indeed) blurry picture of my manga shelves... i own about 80% of shounens, and there are more mangas behind the first layer and some are on my desk, accumulated over the years. (I had a period of mangaholicism when I didn't have access to internet, couldn't read English, so my only alternative was to buy the books and wait for every release in France. Whew)


Also how can I not post this LOL.


Many of you might recognize a fanart Hoshi from Arakawa under the Bridge which I need to catch up on made by nozmo, as my cellphone background.
It stares at you from the darkness whenever someone touches the phone /shot excuse me ? I ASSURE YOU I AM A VERY SANE PERSON !!!1 (and a very big troll, my ringtone is Gavin's GUILTY PLEASURE theme and it creeps out everyone in the bus/train/metro everytime. yessss)

Speaking about nozmo, here's a fanart I made not so long ago T3T (still a wip, but I haven't touched it ever since). It has nothing to do with paperplane, but-- extra bonus !!! 8DDD
please don't mind the extra short hand and problems in the lighting I will fix them someday.... someday.

For those who have read Todd Allison & the Petunia Violet, you might understand who is my favourite character.

For those who haven't read it yet, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR ?? this is like one of the best webcomics ever GO GO READ IT NOW !!!! (◉ਊ◉)

and for me, time for bed...
