Howdy folks :> I hope you've all been well!

Life on my side has been a little uh ... well... lifey. Lifey with a little less of Deviantart or Tumblr. Basically my online presence is pretty quiet. I'm sorry if I've not replied to any of your messages XD;

I went travelling for a little bit during the past few weeks, went to Prague and Helsinki, that was pretty awesome :> Lots of memories with fantastic friends! Tried doing some studies, trying to get better at drawing, still got a long way to go but hah... gotta tryyyy XD

How are you finding autumn so far? I love to step outside, sniff that crisp cold air, see the blue blue sky above, and look around at all of those colourful trees \o/ The perfect kind of season for apple pie! Think I should have a crack at an apple pie sometime :> They always go wrong though

Anyways yeah, thought I'd break the silence a little, it's been ages since the last journal XD

Toodlepip peeps :>

8> Hi.

I'm Katja Hammond. I like drawing comics and making up stuff, and I'm currently an illustrator at Mind Candy where I create art for World of Warriors, Popjam, and the Moshi Monsters franchise! I've won multiple awards at the Embassy if Japan's Manga Jiman competitions, with my comic Oh Crumbs! arriving 1st Place in 2013.

My current project, The Poképeeps Series is currently on hold as I am busy with a few other things. Rest assured though, they will return! :>

Poképeeps Captured: 34 / 719

I don't know if I'll ever make it to the end. I'm sure they're going to come up with a new generation before I've finished XD

When I was little I wanted to one day illustrate Pokémon cards :>

I don't have a lot of free time to work on comics, so things go rather slowly. Still, here's a little bit of a something :>

Update doodleeeee by MagpieFreak

Hey guys :> Times have been a-busy for me here - what with working, sorting things out at home, planning new characters and stories etc. New projects are on their way, so lots of preparing need to be done! I probably wont be submitting much for a while XD

In the meantime I hope you all are having a productive start to the year! \o/

I have a craving to play Dishonored again ._. Does anybody else like this game?

are you doing anymore of the pokepeeps?
MagpieFreak Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
Yip, I will be doing more Pokepeeps - they haven't been forgotten at all XD Just this year I've not really been able to draw as much as I would have liked. I'm still not sure when I will have the time to pick it up again, but I do actually have a few finished pieces in storage :>

Have a Happy Birthday, eats some cake or icecream, or a cupcake if you get the chance. :iconpikalaplz: 
MagpieFreak Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks :> I've been looking forward to trying out some Japanese deserts. I had this... Small pink thing, I don't even know what it was, like a small round doughnut with a Japanese Apricot filling -whatever it was it tasted delicious :> and I finally tasted Taiyaki! I'd really like to find a cake shop and, despite the cold, I would like to try some of the ice cream :> I cannot believe they have sesame-flavoured ice cream. It is mad XD didn't fancy tasting it much XD but so far the food has been really nice :> my favourite is the sushi :D
DoubleDandE Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
From the sound of things, it looks as if you've had a delicious trip so far at Japan. With all the foods and whatnot. 
MagpieFreak Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2014  Professional Digital Artist
I ate a lot of raw fish :9
