Man, this time we did it. We ran out of jokes concerning our MIA status. What was supposed to be a temporary thing became the absolute rule.
Time to 'fess up: we're no good at keeping a social life online -___-”
So dear friends and watchers, you got two misfits here that will pop up randomly, when you least expect it and brace yourselves because it's pop up time!
So what's been going on, STKstarbullet style?
We've been very busy, busy girls...
Along with keeping up with our own work, we have become part of a brand new collective of artists called Cross#atch!
Cross#atch was born out of the sheer desire of STK and other Manga Jiman winners wanting to improve the manga scene in the UK with a fresh new attitude towards manga and comics.
Two other members already reside here on DA: Katja
and Asia (we need her to agree on letting us share her page first! 9_9).
The last one still needs some encouraging to get on DA ehehe, but you can check all of us at our Facebook page : www.facebook.com/CrosshatchInk
And if you're in the mood for likes, drop some on our own:
we need a bit of love and care too!
Cross#atch's debut was at none other than the Japan Matsuri this last October on Trafalgar Square- London, by invitation of the Japan Society no less, with our first book: Hatchlings!
Hatchlings gathers 5 award winning manga entries (from the contest held by the Japanese Embassy every year, called Manga Jiman), colour illustrations and we'll write soon how you guys can buy this anthology, if you get interested!
For now we are keeping a hold of all the copies we still have for... drum roll
BIRMINGHAM MCM Expo!! Woo!!
Yep, we're going to be there with the rest of our fabulous CROSS#ATCH team! If anyone is going to drop by, come and visit us on both Saturday and Sunday ^___^/
We'll keep you guys posted on more soon oh, and in case you want to check how the Japan Matsuri went, yep, Facebook is the place to be or our ressurrected blog
for a more personal point of view ♥
Rock on guys and thank you for sticking with us and reading all this! We couldn't be doing this without your support! All of it counts!
Soon we will come back with more reports and who knows, some surprises! But please remember, we are terrible at keeping in touch -_-” …
