Howdy folks :>

I hope you all have been doing ok :> And for those of you who've been going through tough patches, I hope they are sorted out soon. We all find ourselves in those darker days; some pass, some we are still going through, and some we feel are nearing an end.

It's good to take a break sometimes. Allow yourself some distance from everything that you're used to, see how life is still happening elsewhere, see how the sun is still shining, even if you might not see it where you usually are because there's a temporary cloud blocking it. As long as you remember that the sun is still shining, and will still be there when things are over, maybe you can find the energy to trudge through the next day, and you'll be a day closer to finding good weather again :>

Give yourself distance, view things from a different perspective, at a different scale. Take a step back and maybe whatever's bugging you might be a little bit easier to handle :>

Hope you're all doing ok :>

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. I also illustrated the poster for the Manga Jiman 2014 competition, so I'm looking forward to seeing what you guys come up with if you entered it :D

My current project is The Poképeeps Series - a collection of Pokémon gijinkas starting from the top and going in the order of the National Pokédex :>

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?

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

Welcome. 
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.
