Hello everyone, :wave:

Hope you all are doing well and conituning to create art whatever it may be ;)

Update time, this has been needed for a while.

Jowybean studios logo black by Jowybean

So Last week I was at MCMl London vendoring and for a first time in the London event it was not that bad I got to get to know my friend Limelight Press  so much better, and meet a lot of cool talkative people there.

Anyway long story short the con season for me is over until Ponycon UK and maybe MCM Birmingham and London near the end of the year. I have already started planning for Ponycon UK what with the movie coming out around that time 

Now the big stuff.

I essentially have broken my Freelance career in to Three different identities for three different areas of the creative industry I wish to work in.

I know some of you will not care about this, but i am doing this for those who will support my work regardless of it being fan stuff or not.

JW Sketches - Commercial

starting from January I set up a new business JW Sketches, This is Business will specialise in commercial illustration of icons and Idyllic scenes of Birmingham (the city i live in) and locations beyond the UK, there are so many fascinating towns and places in this world I want to discover, and this is a way to achieve this personal goal of mine, 
So far I have done two craft fairs to see the publics reaction. I currently am in the process of applying for multiple craft fairs in the city to try and promote JWsketches and make it a big success, 

Theres an Etsy store if any of you wish to look at the work we are selling www.etsy.com/uk/shop/JWSketche…

J R Whitehouse, Picture books, Children's illustration

MPWN picture book final draft 2 1 by Jowybean

Since University 6-7 years ago I have had the desire to create art for children. J R Whitehouse is going to be the name I use to represent myself in the children's industry. to kick start this part of my career I am excited to announce With encouragement / advice from friends and members of the SCBWI society I have a picture book in the works that I hope to get published this year =D called My Princess Would NOT. Whats it about? well your have to wait and see ; ) But I can tell you I am hyped to get this project launched.  :eager:

Jowybean Studios - comic geek conventions, passion projects


Jowybean  by Jowybean

This one will be obvious to a lot of you :roll: who have known me since the early days but this is the continuing persona for fan art, conventions, and personal projects.

Jowybean has been going for a long time , since 2006 I think. And its only been the last 3 years that I have found a direction and identity with the name outside MLP. I plan to use this side of me to make more geek art. have no fear MLP will still be around but to be honest I want to expand in to other fandoms I enjoy. I also desire to explore the crazy worlds and characters of my vast imagination known as the jowyverse (yeah I know thats not ego driven in the slightest XD.)


Jowyverse map  by Jowybean

Jowybean will also cover (at least for now) my comic Humanizationdotcom

18582015 1373177612802598 720059744794501741 N Cop by Jowybean

humanizationdotcom has been my ongoing ambitious traditionally drawn comic about the internet 1000 years in the future . We finished issue two last year and just competed the third issue for MCM. those of you eager to continue the story feel free to message me and we can get it to you ASAP. remember its not Artificial its just Intelligence.

We have a website for the comic that needs updating but please take a look if your new to this adventure.=D humanizationcomic.com.

issue 4 coming soon...

I have a Jowybean Etsy store which is being updated with all my con prints and comics. www.etsy.com/uk/shop/JowyStudi…?

Now there is one or two commissioned jobs/ projects I have not mentioned in the update to respect my clients confidentiality . But I hope that by the end of the year I can share something about these new exciting endeavours. :)

Other platforms.

I am most active on Instagram and Deviant art, Instagram is for more of my original art and sketches. Deviant art is the place to go for MLP and other fan art.

My Instagram is jowybeanstudios

At this moment my twitter and tumblr are dead to me and I have no real idea what to do with them or what to post. sorry i just have no interest in those platforms right now :shrug: 

I know some of you have asked why I have no Patreon yet and thats because, again I honestly have no concrete idea what to make it about.I really do not want it to be just MLP focused :stop:. I was an artist before Friendship is Magic was a thing you know.

Right well hope that brought some of you up to speed with the really big stuff currently happening in my life.

I hope my art continues to put a simile on your face or inspire you to create whatever it is that brings you happiness.. =D :hug: :peace:

until next update Laters.

Hey Everyone, I have been meaning to update this Journal in a while but like always I got lazy and was too busy to update more regularly. Since January I have started a new side to my business and began work on some new projects that have given me a new burst of passion for original work. This dose not mean the fan art is stopping just means i have a new path to follow as a professional freelancer artist.

Trust me I will explain everything after I have come back from MCM London next weekend which I am only  going to thanks to my extremely generous talented art friend Limelight Press [link] I am excited to be given the opportunity to vendor at one of the uk's biggest comic con and I hope if any of you are coming you will come over and say hi, I will not bite. ;P

Thank you for taking the time to read this And I hope my crazy amount of work continues to entertain and inspire you all to progress in your own artistic endeavours :thumbsup:

All will be updated the following week so see you then.

Hello Everyone Well 2016 has been one crazy year and after the last few months it might be about to get even crazier in 2017, 

Theres been a lot of projects and jobs that I have not being allowed to talk about but I am so happy to share with you one of the biggest things I have done in my career so far . A couple months ago I had an old contact of mine in animation give me the amazing opportunity to work on Disney's and legos Frozen Northern Lights :wow: as a Storyboard artist. 



It was challenging but very awarding, for not just me but The director Who will most likely need me next year for bigger projects he has planned. 

The other project (unnamed for now) is still in development and I can not disclose any more information expect that it is going to be pitched as a comic/manga or potential animated tv series. This particular project I have been on since october last year and this year has consisted of finalizing characters, story and the setting. I hope to have the pitch bible public soon.

All this work is very exciting and I am eager to move further in my career But I realise this could mean sacrificing the amount of MLP/ original art I usually do. In an ideal world I would love to keep a steady balance of both sides but I do need to think about my future as a freelancer living in the big bad world of creativity, I can not be stuck on one thing like MLP for my whole life, nor will that ever happen.things are going to possibly change dramatically for me because of the amazing opportunities I have been given.

I will however still be involved in fandoms creating art and vendoring at cons as much as I can. Even if all I can produce will be sketches I will still try and provide you with something fresh and new every week, pony or not. At the same time some personal projects like Twijacky tumblr and the titlecards will have to be put on the back burner if the potential jobs eat up a lot of my free time. 

All just said may not come to fruition straight away or even happen. Tut I wanted to give you all a big heads up in case theres a decrease in activity in my gallery from now on.

Thank you to those of you who Have been following me since the beginning And I hope you understand and will be eager to see where Jowybean is going in the future. 


Other UPDATES

Conventions 


I still plan to go to the states again next year either for Bronycon or another US MLP con, if its not possible then probably Gala Con or another euro con.

outside MLP I may try my hand at MCM in London or Birmingham, As I have a few vendor friends who I could share a table with.. 

Patreon


A few of you have asked Why I do not have a patreon yet, Honestly for a long time I have not had a good idea of what I could offer you as awards ;shrug: , but recently I have been speaking with my Dad who helps me at cons and I have been getting a clearer Idea of what I could use my parteron for. But once everything is organised for it. updates will come about that soon. :)

My ongoing comic project about the internet becoming a living reality

Humanization dot com comic update 

Get ready to get hyped guys cause as of the start of June I have just finished inking in the last two pages of Humanization dot com issue/level 2. Its taken longer then it really should have to get to this stage but YES its finally done :phew:.:faint:
I must say I am very happy with the outcome of this both in art and story.

The last two things we have to do before I upload / print it. Is proof read the pages and edit the script.

I am going to take a few weeks off from this project to focus on my Nine World prints and other commissions. But rest assured I plan to get back in to the routine I had for issue 2 with issue 3 and hopefully get that finished even sooner then 2.

hope you are as excited as I am for this, its going to get a lot more interesting from here. And I am going to be spreading it around the web a lot more often so get used to that XD. 

read issue one  if you are curious about the comic or go to the website for more background and behind the scenes content.

This is more of an excuse for me to share my crazy characters and the world they live in, no real goal. I have had many ideas and concepts for my own cartoons for years and now this year I plan to devote as much free time to this as I do to my mlp art. 

Other things

There are a few big projects I am currently involved in, but due to respecting my clients I can not say or mention anything about them sorry :shrug: . But maybe in a couple of months I will be able to share them with you then. ;)

Keep in mind all these things have no real schedule because my imagination is always coming up with hundreds of new ideas and theres no telling where it will take me and what I will focus on for that week I do have a daily plan I follow to make sure  I get all the really important stuff out the way first before I relax with the art I produce online. I just started using a site called People Per Hour and already in the last month or so  I have completed 3 jobs  so I am going to be putting some of my focus on sites like that outside DA tumblr and FB which in turn could affect how much I upload in the future. I like uploading every week and despite my professional life taking off I intend to keep it that way.:) 

Any how guys thats it for now.

until my next journal entry LATERS =D ;peace:

Anyway lets begin this post with the convention scene.

BUCK 2016 retrospective/ future Conventions  

If you were not aware I have just recovered from vendoring at BucK 2016 last weekend (9th to the 10th of april) This honestly was one of the best vendoring experiences I ever had not saying that Bronycon last year was not amazing, But the reason I enjoyed this a lot more was because I got to interact and meet in person artists like :iconassasinmonkey::icondvixie::iconzodiacnlh: :iconanticularpony: :iconpa-kalsha: and :iconstormblaze-pegasus:. most of us had a pizza party and talked about literacy anything, it was so much fun and I may have got me old sketchbook out a few times during our social time to capture the silliness. And to top it off I did not do that badly at my stall either a lot of my old stock went and I got to draw a total of 27 OC drawings over the two days most involving Bucks mascot Britannia hugging ponies and bats. 

This year indeed has marked the end of Buck but the memories people and guests I have meet over the four years have been a blast, its a cliche thing to say but its so true =D


other conventions I have put myself down for this year include Ponycon UK in october , Brony Scott in november, MCM Birmingham and a London geek con called Nine Worlds in August. Will keep you updated on the status regarding each of these cons as they come. 


If you cannot wait and want to check out the prints I sell at cons I have an Etsy store where you can find them and a few other bits of my personal art. www.etsy.com/uk/people/JowyStu…

I do apologise for the delay in updates considering new and old episodes. But I do have a number of drafts and unfinished cards that I plan to compete in the next few months at least to bring the series back up to speed.

My ongoing comic project about the internet becoming a living reality


Since january I have been working hard to get issue 2 done and possibly 3. The updates have been far and few between so not to spoil anything about the story and characters at the same time I have had con preparation to do that made me push it aside for a few weeks.

Our Jell yo by Jowybean

This is more of an excuse for me to share my crazy characters and the world they live in, no real goal. I have had many ideas and concepts for my own cartoons for years and now this year I plan to devote as much free time to this as I do to my mlp art.


Keep in mind all these projects have no schedule because my imagination is always coming up with 1000 new ideas at once and theres no telling where it will take me and what I will focus my spare time on. I have a good mental timetable I make each week to make sure I reach my personal goals This way I can relax with the art I enjoy outside all this work. 

I have a bit of commission work going on outside the internet that I currently cannot talk about for confidential reasons and the respect of my clients, but these will be revealed later on in the year if all goes well.

Other plans 

  • I Would like to start doing a weekend live stream/Picarto showing my WIP of the sketches and Art I create every week. 
  • I have planed to launch a Patreon page soon for not only my fan art but personal work that includes the Humanization.com comic. 
  • Like I said at the start I wish to be more active on social media sites communicating much more about my creativity and been a lot more open about my interests and artistic influences . 

A lot of this stuff could be considered just trivial and obvious for artists online to do, But I believe I need to test the waters and see What I can accomplish when I send that bit more time updating online after I occasionally lose the energy or passion to draw.

Its been a long year of art (also since I updated this Journal) and as we close in on the end of 2015 and count down to you know what. I can not help but update you all on the projects and things to come for Jowybean in the future. sadly Most of it I can not talk about because it is either confidential with clients or not finalised yet. I know a lot of artists now have a Parton and do live streams. I am seriously considering giving it a chance in 2016. 

Anyhow You can expect a few festive/winter themed illustrations from me in the upcoming weeks to Xmas.  

I am happy to announce that I will be going to BUCK 2016 9th to the 10th April =D
my name is already on the vendor list on the official website. buckevents.co.uk/buckcon

other conventions like ponycon UK will be a very big possibility and maybe even one US con just have too see how next year goes. 

I have an Etsy for all my exclusives from the cons
that you can not get anyway else.

My ongoing comic project about the internet becoming a living reality

issue one jowybean.deviantart.com/galler…

story synopsis

Years ago earth is wiped out by war of neutral bombs. At this time the Internet, as we know it was been updated and had began to think independently. Now 1000 years later the Internet has transformed in to a virtual reality where severs websites and programs of all kinds have become living breathing beings connecting together to from a thriving metropolis. Our two main protagonists CADRA the normal farm girl working in the code fields and Mutt her pet dragon suddenly embark on an epic quest to find the code that could bring down the controlling powers of the big bosses Google Apple and many others but what is this mysterious code you say?


I will be more regularly updating on the process of the pages and series after christmas.

Keep in mind all these projects have no schedule since I always have other random ideas and fan art pop up from time to time but it is a way of how I structure my DA account and hopefully give it a unique identity.

I really should have updated this Journal after I had come back from Bronycon which was about two weeks ago today. To keep it short and sweet, because I do not have the patience to write up about the whole trip yet) It was a good experience, got to meet and chat with a lot of the vendors in the hall and say hi to a few horse famous people. I will possibly make a separate post about the con later on if I am not keeping my myself busy with art.

Now that the big cons are over I now only have two other cons I will vendoring at Popnycon UK and hopefully MCM Birmingham. These events are not for another couple months so its All work and no Play for Jowybean .. well sometimes Laziness is still a thing after all.

first Good news

 if your interested I am taking commissions again. =D Jowy Commission list by Jowybean

Biggest news outside my work on DA and tumblr.

I have a professional website for all my original art and portfolio.  =D jowybeanstudios.com

Jowybean Studios by Jowybean

Now Bad news

And I am positive some of you saw this coming considering the lack of any updating for months 

Luna Academy has ended :(

jowybean.deviantart.com/galler…


Luna Academy cover by Jowybean

My FIM comic project that was a Collaboration with my friend and editor :iconhandyj443: has officially stopped. The decision for this apart from being no updates for months :stuipdme: (and I am going to be honest here). Is because 
my initial intention with the project was to create a big pony comic adventure that could rival other popular ones on DA. The amount of views a MLP comic gets is crazy and I wanted to be a part of that scene. its stupid,but true.

So much has happened with my creative life that I cannot make any time for it. The detailed art alone would take over 8 hours. I have to focus my energy on things that are more worth my time and fuel my passion for creating art and not with the idea of producing art because of popularity

however despite it ending I am leaving the pages I did on DA as a showcase of what my comic book style for ponies would look like. 

from now on if I get any ideas  that I think are worth telling in comic form I will stick with just one off jokes or small comics.and Still refer to :iconhandyj443: for their writing and editing.  


thank you for all who read and supported the comic and commented on the pages. and I hope you can understand and respect my decision on this matter. 

BUT...

Its not all doom and gloom for mlp art I have other things that I can manage just fine and I continue to update more frequent.

Scampenstein


scampenstein by Jowybean

In early December 2014 I was contacted by a screenwriter and Filmmaker called Brendan O'Neill to help him out on a potential graphic novel/ gothic animated film called Scampenstein using Indiegogo we successfully funded the project early this year.

I have been brought on board as the lead character designer and graphic artists to help move the project forward .Scampenstein is planed to harken back to the old days of Dreamworks / Disney style 2D animation with a unique twist on the Frankenstein mythos.

sadly theres being no new updates on development for a few months but I still want to keep it up here as it could make a return some time this year. 

The crazy thing is on top of all the above projects  I have a lot of other opportunities outside the internet that I will be excited to share with you later on.

like I said All Work no Play for old Jowy and I am loving it. ^^:

Until next Journal and possibly a entry about my Bronycon trip LATERS: peace:

Tables and Crumpets by Jowybean
Bean Vendor Derped Teaser by Jowybean


Well Its taken 5 months to prepare. but
t from  this weekend from the 7th- to the 9th Bronycon 2015 in Baltimore is happening. I am going to be vendoring over there as one of the only international artists selling my popular MLP art work. (which is the first thing you will find if you type my name in to Google)
 

I have a ton of exclusives I have made especially for the con. so if you happen to stumble upon this blog and your going this weekend please stop by my table, you will not be disappointed. :)  


the downside to this amazing opportunity is that all the preparation for Baltimore has eaten in to a lot of my personal time for my other art projects, some of them are fairly new but I will keep them in the dark for now. As soon as I have recovered from america I will get back on track with my more original work , I have plenty of new ideas that need to be turned in to a reality.

I will be taking commissions during the con.

on an unrelated note I have a website now for everything nonpony =D jowybeanstudios.com

Other important updates outside DA

In the last few weeks I have been in the process of getting an actual professional online portfolio/ website made that will be called Jowybean Studios or just Jowybean. This will be a platform to showcase my original and diverse bodies of work from storyboarding to commissions. 

On top of al this The website designer I am working with is part of an agency in Birmingham UK called Nubi. Which I have been asked to join as an illustrator. A lot of people connected or are friends with the agency have taken a fondness to my work and Will most likely give me some proper paid jobs.

Happy New year everyone hope you all have a very creative and positive year. :thumbsup: :hug:

A new year also means new plans and projects.

Lets get this update going 

Starting with the most important non pony stuff 

Scampenstein

In early December I was contacted by a screenwriter and Filmmaker called Brendan O'Neill to help him out on a potential graphic novel/ gothic animated film called Scampenstein that he is getting funded on Indiegogo please give support to the project on the campaign it will help us reach the goalwww.indiegogo.com/projects/sca…

I have been brought on board as the lead character designer and graphic artists to help move the project forward .Scampenstein is planed to harken back to the old days of Dreamworks / Disney style 2D animation with a unique twist on the Frankenstein mythos.

on top of this I am going to be entering quite a few international and national art contests  as well as joining some well known art societies in my region all this is to expose my original art to the public so wish me luck on that guys. 

Conventions

I have already started planing to go to Bronycon or one of the other us cons this year. I am going to try my best to vendor over in the sates as i feel its something I need to do from a business standpoint and a fan standpoint.  I will need to start a donation to help out with the funds as it will not be cheap but I will get back to that later this month:). As for the national ones well just have to wait and see but most likely it will be UK Ponycon and any other small first year cons that are replacing Buck this year.

Month long projects

Each month I  would create a a fake moth long project to challenge my skills as an illustrator in new interesting ways I would like to continue this in 2015 but with the amount of work i am giving myself on top of regaler commissions i may have to put this aside for a while. 

These were the big projects i managed to finish within a month in 2014.

Middle East 2050: Vista
Maid Marian Portraits : Marian

Personal projects  on DA

Humanisation.com jowybean.deviantart.com/galler…

The ambitious graphic novel/comic  about the Internet becoming a living reality is underway again. This is a collaboration between me and my father who is writing the script for the whole series. We are planing to have issue one printed around March time also this is one of the only projects that I am going to be drawing purely in traditional media (obviously aside from adding the text in).

MLP FIM title cards

Chaos Fall :FIM title cards series by Jowybean

I am sure some of you are wondering whats happening with the MLP title card project. Do not worry its not stopped its just been on a bit of hiatus as near to the end of 2014 i was bombarded with a lot of commission work. The other seasons 3,2 and 4 will be done soon .

Next cards planed: Pinkie Apple Pie, Ponyville Confidential and Crystal Empire part 1  

Other Title Card series announced: Today 

I put out a poll last year asking what other shows you guys would like to see have a Jowybeantitle card series. SatAM came very close but a lot of you wanted to see Kill La Kill :evilaugh:. So expect to see some drafts coming up for that pretty soon. ;p
 
Killing Card 2 by Jowybean

The one other thing I would like to continue this year is doing more art around my imaginative world and characters that live in it. I have kept this universe locked up inside my head for far too long now its time to unleash everything about it.
 
Places in the Jowyverse 1 by Jowybean
 
Oh and obviously more random pony art like this :

H.com Characters 1 (in process) by Jowybean


And Luna Acadmey jowybean.deviantart.com/galler…. pony comic i started before august with my friend :iconhandyj443: who's the editor and co writer of the series. 

Luna Academy cover by Jowybean

Both projects never really died they just needed more time spent on the script/story. I can now say I am more confident to post updates for both projects on a regular basis.  

Now granted i will still do the odd bit of pony /original art inbettween the comics. But i would like to get as many pages for these comics done before 2015 and after the new year as a test of patience and time.

back from UK ponycon 2014

It was a very relaxing and family friendly event. It was not as Brony centered which made a nice change. 

I did a lot of coloured OC commissions and sold a bit more of my old stock from Buck con  
this year which is awesome.



  I also made some new contacts with some of the other artists there. All in all this was a better experience then Buck 2014 and I will be going next year for sure.

Over the weekend i also spoke with :iconmistydash:. I meet him perviously at my table at Buck a year ago but got to know him really well at his table this year. He even got awarded the best stall which is really cool considering this was his first time vendoring.


Pony for a pony commission list (Updated) by Jowybean


Personal Projects ongoing 

After Buck i have been making changes to my work pattern by creating a beirf for a fake moth long project. each month I will challenge my skills as an illustrator in new interesting ways giving me a better chance of being seen by the creative industry to do freelance work for it. while still being involved in the Brony community i want to continue to do Freelancing and conventions . 

my first big project finished last month called Middle East 2050 

The aim of this month long project was to create a series of 4 concept art illustrations that show cased a sci fi futuristic Middle East using different inside and outdoor scenarios from a positive angle rather then a political/war view. I choose this part of the world so I could challenge my limited knowledge of the culture and how effectivity I can incorporate elements of sci fi while still retaining the feeling of the regions in the Middle East like Oman Iran and Qatar.

Hey everybody after two days of rest I have recovered from the chaos filled weekend that was the UK Brony convention BUCK 2014.

I did rather well with my vendor table this year not as successful as last year :( . But I got to meet a lot of awesome fans, get a handful of commission to keep me busy for a while. And meet some of the quote "horse" famous people in the fandom. ;)

One of the biggest highlights for me was getting to know the other vendors there on a personal level and exchange contacts with them. Geek Stitch who i was next too were super helpful at telling me about other conventions I could try selling my fan and original work to.

Other important things to know regarding cons and stuff for the rest of the year

I so dearly love Japan =D :love: and will move there at some point in the future its a big long LONG term goal of mine ^^;. I have become a bit of an Otaku over few months watching a lot of different anime and documentaries on Japans history and culture.

Right i must apologise and say i am sorry for any lack of response in the last four days but this update will explain all Warning Rant time ^^; (aka a lot of text)

OK this week has been good and bad i will start with the bad to get all that out the way. 
It seems my 4-year-old old technology has finally started to give in. :no:
A few weeks ago my 3 year old hard drive died and i took in to my local repair shop to attach the drive on to a new caddy then i get the news that it is unreadable on my Mac because of some sort or corruption. they take in my laptop this Monday hopping to restore the missing data and nope everything is gone. There was one other option i could have taken but it would take more then a few days. And I cannot waste any more time without a laptop I have Buck con and the job centre to prepare for. 
So i brought a new one today and will start all over again. Yes I have lost maybe a lot personal files but I am not really that upset most of it needed clearing out at some point. :shrug: 

Last Saturday night after the grand finale of MLP season 4 and my brain rushing with ideas :eager: my Wacom 5 tablet finally kicked the bucket. I ordered a new one straight away on the count most of my work is done by tablet nowadays, so i have a brand new Wacom pro tablet on its way to me now with a couple extra accessories to give my digital painting some more range. Now on to the Good news. I have been motivated to do more life drawing and studies from my collection of metro newspapers and expand my visual style to new ideas. One being mixing manga characters in between wild wacky Cool world inspired backgrounds. (I will upload those later on today). On the other plus side i ordered Manga Studio 5 so i can start making some more comic pages for my graphic novel project Humanise.com. 
 
I want to improve on my manga art (that’s a personal goal I have set for the rest of the year). 
I am pleased that i have been able to stay clam and cope with all these set backs considering how much I could over react about a situation like this.

Yes its annoying but life never will be fair and you have to keep pressing on holding your head up high. which i what i am going to do.



On to other information :)

i still have a couple outstanding commissions to finish but i am still open to new ones. jowybean.deviantart.com/art/Po…

Its been a good two months since i left my full time job which i explained about in the last journal update. i am now signed back on the job centre looking for full time or part time jobs i can do within the realm of illustration and graphic design. 

Good news is with this free time I have had i have been able to continue with my projects the MLP title cards jowybean.deviantart.com/galler… and the ambitious graphic novel Humanised.com.jowybean.deviantart.com/galler… (which i will start uploading content soon.)

I am in the process of creating my Jowybean website that will be done this month. ;)

Other important things to know regarding cons and stuff for the rest of the year

Sadly due to workload job hunting and lack of preparation. American pony cons look to be less likely this year. :doh:

On the other hoof BUCK 2014 you can bet your sweet flank I will be going there :headbang: :nod: vendoring .i have a lot of new prints postcards and exclusives i am working on right now that you will not want to miss trust me there going to be big bros. ;)

the other trip I would  have liked to do this year would have been the Manga tour of Japan with the travel agency www.japanjourneys.co.uk. I so dearly love Japan =D :love: and will move there at some point in the future its a big long term goal of mine ^^;. I have become a bit of an Otaku over few months watching a lot of different anime and documentaries on  Japans history and culture.

my newest anime craze is Gurren Lagann. That series is pretty awesome and makes a nice change from the slice of life comedy animes i have grown attached too this year like Lucky Star and Excel Saga. (think Freakazoid set in japan thats what Excel is , well worth your time in my opinion :rolf:)

i will aim for japan next year instead but darn it i will make it over there. :eager:
