welcome to skallehus~
i finally got a day off work to start drawing “hemlock” again, so here’s a crappy phone picture of sisu’s house to celebrate! updates won’t be back for another week or two, but until then my sale is still on in my lulu shop.
also, i’ll be at LFCC sharing a table with my buddy claudetc in july, come visit us!
this is maybe a boring post, but i bought a really interesting book at work today since they’re having a special staff discount this week >w< it’s called “The Jewish Wardrobe: From the Collection of the Israel Museum, Jerusalem”. definitely recommend it for anyone interested in folk/historical costume. it focuses on countries like israel, algeria, morocco, tunisia, iraq etc., rather than the usual stuff i look at from east/northern europe.
here’s a question though - does anyone know what’s up with coins everywhere in folk costume? it seems to show up in all kinds of cultures. is it a display of wealth, just decorative or something superstitious?
since it’s a bit lost in my tumblr now, i thought i’d bring up my hemlock book list again, i still update it when i find something new that’s helpful to me.
hemlock is on holiday until june 24th, but until then here’s a drawing i did of sisu in a (if i remember the name right) “kichka”.
lulu sale still on for another few weeks!
my sister ponymonster and i are gonna be at MCM expo at table B10 this weekend! come and visit us, we’ve got a bunch of new stuff including hemlock #4, prints of my boom! covers, ponymonster’s new pokemon starter prints, my little pony stickers, charms, and more!
i have 80 copies of hemlock #4, first come first serve. if you miss out or can’t make it, it’s going up for sale on lulu this friday!
Help publish my comic book series called Honeydew and Magic, a story about a girl with a tree spirit living in her head.
Honeydew and Magic Kickstarter is LIVE, Please check it out…. it’s a fun little adventure comic with creatures and fun times and lots of pretty colours!!
signal boost! nikki is great you guys
3 pages of “hemlock” this week!
i’m going to be having a sale on the first three issues of hemlock when i put chapter four up on my lulu store, i think. i just ordered some proofs for the tiny corrections i wanted to make, so start saving! ;>
the stress was worth it, my copies of hemlock #4 have arrived and they worked out fine! i’ll be selling them at MCM expo for £7 each. there are a few things i want to adjust before i put them up on lulu, but i’ll make a post when it’s up.
(tiny tristan is not for sale, it was a gift from my sister ponymonster, who will be sharing my MCM table with me as usual~)
