I've only just been able to check on dA, for some reason the Internet in the first hotel I was at kept insisting that DeviantArt didn't exist heheh XD if only there was a dA app I could install... 

Still, thanks for all of the birthday wishes! I will try to get back to everybody when I have the time. It was definitely one of the strangest birthdays I've had so far - it began with me waking up in my warm snugly bed at home in good old Blighty, and ended with me jet lagged, confused, and lost in the middle of Tokyo on the other side of the world!

Japan's been awesome! :> My favourite bit so far is the fact that wild vending machines can appear anywhere XD mainly selling drinks though, nothing crazy. The buildings are fantastic and just.. Argh. So much here hats different to the UK, I can't describe it all XD 

The only downside is that the Pokemon Centre closed before I arrived, and the shop actually relocated to another part of Tokyo, so I guess I will visit there later on in the trip :>

I hope you're all doing fine :> hope you're having a great time preparing for Christmas and anticipating all of those presents! I willr reply to all of your messages when I can, but for now, Merry Christmas and a happy new year!

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'm playing Alpha Sapphire, and I've just reached Mauville City.

Woah.
It might not be December yet, but I must have mince pies in my life! Q_Q
Hey peeps :> When I post up comics in the future, is there anything else you'd like to see? Like a return of Artist's Log, concept art, thumbnails, various stages of development, or something else?
Today at the MCM Comic Con was madness - absolutely stuffed with visitors, awesome cosplays, lots of goodies, lots of fun :> It was great meeting up with deviants and buying artwork! \o/

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.
