Yes I'm back for a new journal entry... AND ANOTHER 2 YEARS since! :lol:

Thank you for adding my artworks to your faves and watch. I am seldom here but haven't fully left because my Ghibli club is still running (or not really as it is mostly on autopilot).

Instagram, my blog & Facebook is where I post my new stuff and communicate so if you'd like to follow me and vice versa, please check out the links below!

Currently I am focusing on releasing digital stamps and clip art in my shop so I don't have the luxury of time to fiddle with original art like in the past. I also run an online vintage shop and that takes up a bulk of my time.

If you'd like to contact me for commissions, please feel free to e-mail me. If you have a tight budget and just want something for personal use, let's see if we can work something out. It all depends on how long I take to do it.

Once again I gotta mention most of my former DA friends have moved on so it has been quiet. Everyone is getting older, starting families, busy with their careers, and of course this site is more skewed towards the teenage demographic and focused on anime so yeah we had to leave sooner or later for greener pastures and find matching audience for work or focus on another career altogether. Besides some drama back then - if you remember it - that led to some exodus of artists lol. So Instagram is it, since the general public, professionals, amateurs and everything in between keep the network engaging.

It has been over a decade and things should change but it seems to be going downhill here. Back then it was common to receive many insightful comments, do collabs, genuine interaction and forge friendships between artists who want to help each other out. Nowadays even the most popular ones get only a handful of comments, of which I'm not surprised if the majority of comments is a single word lol. Like a hit and run thing.

Anyhow if you're ever back here reading this, don't forget to say hi! As for those who are still submitting, keep up the good work!

Have a great 2016 and years ahead, and I'll see ya in 2018 for my next journal entry if I don't forget or am still around :hug:

Hello all,
It's been ANOTHER 2 years since I updated this thing :lol:

Thank you for adding my artworks to your +faves and +watch. I just cleared all my devwatches and messages and it had accumulated to a few thousands since 2012, but I managed to give everyone who faved/watched/on my list, a view or a fave or maybe an llama! My fingers are tingling from too much scrolling & clicking lol.

The Ghibli & Tenchu clubs are still active, mostly on autopilot but submit all you want please, if you wish to reach a wider audience!

As to why I've been quiet for so many years, my creative output comes in spurts due to splitting my energies in running my vintage shop. Hopefully I'll find a way to focus solely on art but old things are sooooo much fun. I also submit more artworks and progresses on my blog, Instagram and Facebook so you might like to check out the links below.

If you'd like to contact me for commissions or projects, please feel free to e-mail me. If you have a tight budget and just want something for personal use, let's see if we can work something out. For an idea of pricing, ACEOs (2.5 x 3.5inches) start at US$18. It all depends on how long I take to do it. My Etsy shop contains prints, digital downloads and paintings.

And this is old news but most of my DA friends have moved on to other channels or 'graduated' from this site, (it's almost been a decade!) but if you're ever back here reading this, don't forget to say hi! As for those who are still submitting (regularly or not), keep up the good work!

Hi everyone!
Wow can't believe it's only been 2 years since I've updated this journal :lol:

Actually I've been active in my clubs, mostly the Ghibli one and I've just ended a contest weeks ago.

Anyhow, same call... If you'd like to contact me for any enquiries or commissions or projects, please feel free to e-mail me at chibilemon (at) gmail (dot) com. I've also updated my links below as some of the less popular sites are now not in use.

Alternatively if you are here on deviantArt you can leave me a note.

I have been submitting paintings to deviantart lately and am still at a learning stage and not painting quick enough; however my hands for illustrations are starting to itch again and I'll be rolling some illustration merchandise in my Etsy shop soon and hopefully they have improved a little. Starting with coloring pages, digi stamps and eventually digi paper dolls inspired by shoujo manga.

Lastly what I've been up to the last 2 years is the same, which was why I never felt the need to update this. My little vintage & retro jewelry shop has amazingly lasted 5 years come July, considering the shop was started on a whim on a even whimsier budget :lol: guess I do take things too seriously sometimes. Please drop by to take a look if you're looking for vintage accessories or the handmades. I ship worldwide!

Come visit and talk sometime if you're on any of these channels... Ciao now!

Alternatively if you are here on deviantArt you can leave me a note.

My artworks are getting simpler though I plan to work more in digital colouring since markers don't come in the colours I need sometimes. Markers are also expensive, and take up space, and no such thing as ctrl-z

Oh yes and don't forget to check out my Vintage & Retro jewellery shop Lemon Kitscharms. Nice and cheap stuff if you like nostalgia. Also it's killing my hands & nails. I'm almost finished with my 100 metres of bubble wrap 'round desk' lol

I haven't been blogging and haven't checked mySpace and haven't ping this and that. There's just too many accounts to maintain if you get what I mean lol. My studioghibli and tenchu clubs are still active since DA merged the clubs/groups yay, so feel free to join/post your artworks! Oh well ciao~ talk to me sometimes :D

AHAHHAHA @ Detroit Metal City movie :lmao: It's about this gentle (ok sissy-ish) countryside guy who goes to Tokyo to pursue his dreams of being a feel-good pop singer but ends up being a leader of a death metal band 'DMC' known as Johannes Krauser II which he absolutely despises. I saw the trailer on tv and went ahahaha I needed some comedy and this looked hilarious. Anyhow,

I've never seen a better sissified transformed into scarily freak-snarling-demon singer like how Matsuyama Kenichi (L guy from Deathnote) does it! He's sooo funny and realistic, almost unrecognisable!! Sorry to fangirls but I fell asleep on Deathnote movie tho the manga is kick ass;   this film was otherwise quite interesting, I think he did the vocals too so it makes it more believable.

Though I'd still say NO NO to death metal despite watchin the movie; you know I thought the 'immature' happy songs were cute - like the type of songs I sometimes like to listen *coff* :lol: No like screamos about murder and rape lol. Also the film is laced with F-bombs profanity and demonic imagery but not too severe so if it's offensive to you maybe skip it. It's death metal so whaddya expect... Oh and that freak guy Gene Simmons from KISS is in it too.

Trailer here: www.nipponcinema.com/trailers/…
You gotta see it if you like Kenichi or wierd comedy!! The trailer has profanity too just a warning.

I'm trying to break even and hopefully get the biz registered and a proper e-commerce site running (yesh even though there's an ECONOMIC RECESSION - aren't you sick of hearing that 2 words already mwahaha) so I've barely got time for art, sigh. if you're in school - GOOD FOR YOU! =D

Ebay = imbecile

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 29, 2008, 11:59 PM
Ebay is so freaking stupid and ridiculous I'm just about done there. If you've been a seller on Ebay you will receive an email about their 'Reduced Listing Fees' which said:
You asked, we listened. We're reducing Insertion Fees and adjusting Final Value Fees to lower your up-front cost to sell on eBay. You wanted free Gallery, now you've got it--plus more feature discounts.

What the crap is that, do they think we are stupid???!! They lowered the insertion fees by a nickel and raised their final value fees by 66% from 5.25 to 8.75% and think we are actually making more now. NO EBAY YOU DIDNT LISTEN because you greedy morons are going to squeeze out all the sellers who are paying your damm salaries out of business and don't insult our intelligence by thinking we cant do our maths or by going hurrah that I'm going to lose money cuz u lowered the insertion fees and the gallery is free now (it shouldve been free in the first place) but u jack up prices on another end!!!! This is just ridiculous, usually I just take the fee increases in insertion costs as matters of rising prices for servers but 8.75% of our sales price jump is just too much that I just couldn't believe it and had to read the details like 5 times over. Oh yes and next you'll be increasing Paypal fees huh!!! Why the hell am I paying 40% of my sales to Ebay???

The other most idiotic feature I've encountered  is the new feedback policy:
"Sellers will no longer be able to leave negative or neutral Feedback for buyers." jawdrop!!! WHAT THE SHIT IS THAT GOOD FOR???!!!!
So I am forced to leave postitive feed back even though it was a stupid buyer who didn't read or the stupid post office who delays my packages or buyers out to scam me and I have no right to retaliate or warn other sellers abt dealing with them??? What a TRAIN load of BS!! Then wats the point of the friggin feedback for??? So only buyers are in charge of the deal?? PLEASE EBAY USE YOUR BRAINS IF YOU HAVE ANY OF THAT, it's the SELLERS who are running your godamm company. Without sellers, the buyers have NOTHING to come here for. Your stock prices are dropping and made a stupid decision to buy sykpe for 1billiion and what's the easy way out, YEAH! RAISE FEES AGAIN AND KILL THE SELLERS, ANYHOW THEY'RE SO STUPID THEY WON'T NOTICE!! YEA ALL SELLERS ARE CROOKS AREN'T WE? I tell you what ebay, I HOPE YOU CRASH AND BURN. GOOGLE WHERE ARE YOU JUST KILL OFF THIS DAMM HAZARD AND RELIEVE US OF ITS STUPIDITY!!! YOU GUYS READ THE FREAKING BOARDS, SELLERS ARE SAYING GOODBYE!!! What comes around goes around, community marketplace my ass.  I won't even go to the part of the shitty rules of 4.8 stars for powerseller status. Alot of sellers will lose powerseller status that way so guess what? Yes they're not entitled for discounts which means more money into ebay's pockets!!!

Oh wait, I forgot about this part where they say Paypal can hold your payments for 21 days if they suspect that the customer will be unsatisfied. WOW so they're psychics now!! I don't see the sense in that. I shall tell customers that I will only ship out after 21 days when paypal release the money to me! Simple, anyhow I'm just taking a leaf out of ebay's books! Screw the buyers right?!

I am SO sorry for the rant, I wouldn't be as pissed if Ebay didn't think we are stupid. Really really horrible company. Zero protection for sellers, haven for scammer buyers.

DA Stamp - On Shoutboard by phantompanther

PAYPAL SHALL BE NAMED SHITPAL

Journal Entry: Wed Jan 16, 2008, 12:29 AM
Lol I know I got burned by paypal before and would've quit if I didn't have an alternative payment choice for overseas customers (who make up bulk of my art sales) but this is just ridiculous.

PAYPAL ARE LEGALISED SCAMMERS, I recommend that if you can avoid  using them, DO SO! Everyone thinks these complaints are out of the blue wayside and won't happen to them but I'm pretty sure someday paypal will randomly freeze your account (they call it 'limiting' tho the limit means har har we feel like pocketing your funds) and when you attempt to resolve it as par their instructions, they will always claim for more documents, suppliers names or whatever or the most common is to claim that they never received your faxes. Moreover they give u a span of a few days to send in your documents (that time limit INCLUDES the time they spend ' processing' it) and after that you wait and thought they were processing it and you end up with a letter that they say ur time limit is OVER! You will then receive the exact same note that you need to re-do your faxing all over again and wait 2 weeks or 180 days till they ' process' it. I mean what the crap is that.

I recommend this site Paypalsucks.com for true paypal horror stories. These pple are not lying (maybe a few are exaggerating) but the point is I can't believe a major service provider like Paypal are allowed to do what they do. Because they are monopolising the scene they can do whatever they please. And they're not a bank so they dun gotta follow strict banking regulations. They are ruining pple's businesses (I lost income for almost 2 months) and lives and probably the worst case was they randomly froze a charity's account and they are still unable to resolve the case because of the roundabouts paypal is famous for.

My problem this time is not limiting access. It's the discrepancy in currency exchange rate. See the confirmation page exchange rate promised was US$1=S$1.40886

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Then after clicking submit I get a thankyou message. Feeling bored I decided to check out the transaction details:

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

WTH?! The exchange rate is now 1.39715! An outdated rate is being used for the processing! I know it's only 2 cents difference per dollar but it adds up and compromising on what they promised. Crooks! I lost 2 bucks. What if I withdraw more? Good thing I've learnt to never to accumulate my funds. I dun care if its  a difference in 10cents or 10bux, I hate companies who dun show signs of integrity.

So I sent off a letter explaining my cause n want them to explain that and reimburse me the rates promised. Dear Frank replied me:
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

LMAO I can't even reply back cuz the reply goes back to the Help form and Frank can't and will not help me because he said I know the rates fluctuate yes they fluctuate but their rates are on a daily basis not bloody SECONDS basis after I clicked submit. but he's so moronic that he didn't read my complaint!! Funniest shat I've seen in a while. I reallyyyy hate paypal and ebay. I'll be shifting to etsy soon and I'm very careful with my funds in paypal. NEVER leave your funds in paypal. cuz they're not a bank and if anyone 'suspicious' or linked to your account in the minutest way of being 'suspicious' you WILL get freezed. Paypal arara you are hereby SHITPAL!

Happy japanese folk-rock song for ya, pple should listen some of these other than angsty songs but then I like gloomy songs too -__- I mean if you're gloomy won't you hear happy songs to try improve your mood?

Title is '明日天気になぁれ' (Ashita tenki ni naare) which means Tomorrow's weather will be good/better by Yuzu :love:

Enjoy

and I'm learning Flash CS3 if anyone has some tips for me I'd love to hear them. I've illustrated an Enter page for my website in photoshop & clred it but then Flash works for vector images? I made a simple animation raster in ps (saved as flv), and am now I tried to export & incorporate into timeline but it still doesn't seem to animate. Oh well.

Lastly some kind soul has uploaded an abundant amount (550) of old Doraemon videos  youtube.com/nikodora , so if you love doraemon & can understand a lil japanese, watch it before youtube takes it down!! (like what they did for 28 weeks later just as I was watching them!!) I'm just relishing them now :w00t:

Random Part 1

Journal Entry: Mon Sep 3, 2007, 4:54 AM
Just a random message:
Kids, clean your keyboards! Please. Thank you!

If your keyboard is the kind that the buttons can be plucked out, good for you!
I clean mine every 2 months, still, I amaze myself at the amount of eyelashes beneath the buttons and then there's the wierd thing that the keyboard is not even under my face or chin or whereever. I have to stretch out to type, does eyelashes grow out from my fingers :-? Also there're UFO - unidentified foreign objects - lodged here and there!

Isopropyl Alcohol is my best friend, you can get a bottle at pharmacies, and they're pretty useful for removing finger oils n crap from mouse surface, keyboard buttons etc.  Since I use the mac now, it's more obvious when the surface gets dirty and alcohol just makes things run really smooth after cleaning!

That's about it :D

And I've been busy with my charms & acccessories shop, this month a nice lady offered me a deal to supply her retail booth in the city area with 100 handmade cellphone charms each month. Not earning much, but I hope it pulls through for the next month (aka that my charms are selling well to the public). Other than that I am using all that I'm earning from my artworks to fund my stock in the shop lol!! My bank is runnin indeficit!!

studioghibli is a new club set up by me, their loyal fan. I've watched abt 15 of their movies and think Studio Ghibli produces one of the top animations for at least 20 years. They deserve more exposure for those who think animation studio = Disney. Ghibli may not be as old as Disney but their films are more poignant than the crap Disney churns out these days. I wish Disney films were like they were in the past anyhow... Finally Disney got smart and bought rights to redub and release some of S.G. films on dvds (:boo: I heard it the voices weren't good enough)

Do join the club if you are interested! Thanks!

THE END. THANK YOU.

Honestly I don't know what really happened. Was it random checking of address? Or did a 3rd-party unauthorised access really happened? Anyhow all I needed to do was to fax a utility bill and the cover letter as proof of address that I was me. And to wait 7 biz days to see if they processed your shat.

I refaxed it twice without a hint of receipt. I enquired  on both times and received same emails which is just a copypaste. I doubt they even read my complaint. I couldve typed  gibberish and they wouldn't know the difference HAH! Bastards.

Kids, if you wanna use Paypal for any biz, I suggest tread carefully and don't leave too much money loitering in it (like me) or suffer the LOCK-DOWN!!

Oh and if you live in Singapore, I suggest when you call the customer service you better already know chinese. Even though I pressed for Eng language the lady who picked it up could barely speak English nor get my email right. After that I just gave up and spoke in Chinese. Anyhow at least she was better and more apologetic than any of the folks over in the US headquarters (if I ever get to speak to them).
