So big news! I just finished my almost 4 year long project: Niels Feynman‘s time traveling adventures, book 1 of 4. I so happy to have concluded that. I originally intended to be done in 2 years, but life had other plans!

Thank you everyone for joining me on this journey, for all your support and help, for everything! It meant a lot for us that you were there cheering us on, and of course the donations.

We’re very happy to have finished and we’re looking forward to future projects so stay tune as we’ll also be updating all our shops with new prints and merchandise.

Scripts for books 2-4 are almost done, I will start sketching book 2 soon. And production will begin once we raise some starting money. Until then we’ll be posting on Patreon concept art, character sheets and the rest.

 

Ghibli town

The Ghibli town mod for Stardew Valley is progressing, we finally have a main map working, now we have to fill in the buildings, NPCs and events.

Happy New Year!

Hi everyone!

It’s been a long time since I posted anything here. Between changing continents, getting sick and starting a new job, my online presence had to take a back seat. I also have a new cat.Ā šŸ˜»

Image may contain: cat and indoor

But personal news aside my art projects continue and I have a bunch of new plans and projects on the way, as old ones get concluded, we’re moving forward. As always check the Projects page to see what is happening to your favorite series, as I will be updating that soon.

In “short”:
Niels book 1 will end in 2-3 months, then hiatus while we work on concept art for the next books in the series. Jun will continue to make the lineart and we are looking for someone to help with the backgrounds. Email me forĀ  details after we figure out the budget and follow this blog for news on that.

Ghibli town mod, official work will start after I finish the Niels book. So far, me, Trent and the rest have done some artwork and coding for it. Super happy Mermaid island worked so well, we’re looking forward to expanding to a full city. Mancer has kindly offered to make the music for it.

– Ernest and Erwin mini games are in the pipeline as well. We’ll start small with some side scrollers and puzzles and depending on the resources we have both time and money, we’ll let you know what gets done this year. Hopefully at least 1.

– I’m currently teaching manga and japanese courses at local art studios. But I do plan to finish the online tutorial series Team Mana UP has so graciously sponsored, and I do apologize that it got delayed. I’m really hoping to properly set up my mini recording studio soon. Renovating in winter is painfully slow.

– Don’t forget to continue supporting us at Kofi or the other usual platforms, as the more resources we have the more we can do and faster. And let us know what your biggest favorites are by subbing to the favorite series, leaving comments etc. The squeaky wheel gets the grease, as they say. And discord link: https://discord.gg/Q5MeNHX

Cheers!

Are you ready for an adventure? You can read it for free here on Tapastic!

The idea for the story came from my husband who is a physicist and an avid gamer. Until we can make this story into a game we offer you a comic to read and get familiar with the characters and the world they inhabit.

On this project my friend Jun Fender is helping me by making the lineart. We stream live the making of the pages and you can find the recordings on Youtube. You can also find tutorials and freebies here on my blog and on Patreon.
