2018 Lookback and plans for 2019

2018 is almost coming to an end, so I thought that now would be a good time to make a post were I reflect on what I did this year and what I plan to do in 2019.

 

2018 was a fairly calm year for me. I did not create as much art and products as I wanted. I did deliberately take things a little easy since I wanted to wait until this website and the webshop were finally finished and operational.

I think the things that I am happiest with this year is my new website and the shop. Although there is still some work left to be done, I am very happy with the sales I have made in my shop so far and I will be striving to promote my shop even more in the upcoming year!

As for art, I do feel like I did more than last year, and yet it is still far from the amount that I really wanted to produce. I created a few new prints, noteblocks and keychains this year and I should not forget about my 2nd coloring book “Wings and fins” and the mini heartlandstories booklet “Miracle night!

What’s in store for 2019??

We can never be sure what the future will bring but I can at least dream about it and try hard to make things a reality 😉 So here are my plans for the upcoming year!

  • 20 Jan I will be a speaker at japan café, were I will talk about my work. It will be my 2nd time as a speaker. If things go well, I might be willing to take up the courage and do this more often!
  • A new coloring book! It has been a while since I created a new coloring book. This time I want to make a little pocket size coloring book with brandnew chibi artworks of mine that you can take with you everywere you go!
  • Comics: As usual, I am still working hard on my next bigger “heartslandstories” comic. I have no clue how far along I am in the story to be honest BUT, I do feel like I have reached the halfway point and I will now be working toward the conclusion 🙂 Also I think that it ia about time that I bring my first comic “Robocity” to english speaking audiences 😉
  • Artworks: I already have a few artworks ready to be shared with you and plans to use them on merchandise! As usual I always hope that I can create more art than the previous year and I will do my best to achieve this!
  • New merchandise! I have many ideas for new merch, even some products that I have not created yet before. I look very much forward to show them to the world 🙂
  • I also plan to promote my webshop a lot and work hard at building a name and brand for myself. This means that I will probably also be creating more original art and try to be more recognisable 🙂
  • finally, I will be attending conventions again. Aside from Dokomi and Dutch comic con in march, I have no idea how many or wich other conventions I will be joining but the ones very high on my list are Abunaicon and MCM London. I really would love to be able to attend and share my work with people in the UK as well! 🙂

Aaaand…that is it! I have no clue what the future hold but we shall see!

Miracle night out now!

Hi everybody! I am so excited to announce that my mini booklet “Miracle night” is out and available in my webshop! I know many of you loved my comic “robocity” and have been asking me for a while when my next comic is coming out. I honestly do not know at this point although I am working very hard on it. That is why I decided to print this mini comic booklet wich includes a few mini stories with the characters from my “robocity” comic. A little something to keep you occupied while you are waiting for my next book 😉

Orders placed before 24th of november, will receive an isgnature with sketch inside the booklet! If you order before this date, you also have the option to pick the booklet up at Dutch comic con next weekend! That way you will save on shipping costs as well 🙂

Ninja cat keychains

I have added a new keychain to my webshop. A cute ninja cat to protect your keys and other belongings with! Check them out before they are gone!
