my temporary absence + some femspiration

Apologies for the lack of updates recently!

Life has been whizzing along, and I’ve been working longer hours, in preparation for my trip to Japan.

I’m really excited about this trip, as it will be my first visit to the Land of the Rising Sun. Sugoi, ne? 🙂

I’ve started on a colouring book – the theme is a coincidence! – but am unsure how I feel about adult colouring in books at this time. Personally I would prefer to draw and work from my own images, get things out onto paper from my own mind, but I can see how it could be a good starting point and a way of shifting focus.

On Sunday I had the opportunity to watch a documentary about the history of women in the comic book industry – She Makes Comics. It was fascinating and worth a watch if you are interested in art, women in the arts, the Western comic book and graphic novel industry, or all three! You can read more about it here.

Dewa, ja mata – see you later!

I’m hoping to find some fab & inexpensive art supplies on my travels. 🙂
