I’m super excited to announce that one of my illustrations has been printed in the November issue of M2 Magazine along side an article written by my husband, Isaac. We were super lucky to be able to get our hands on a Wacom Cintiq Pro 16″, it has completely changed how we draw.
I’m quoted at the end of the article, “It’s the digital version of eating really good russian fudge; melt in your mouth good.” It has turned drawing into something smooth and natural again, I really can’t stop talking about this piece of tech. Below I’ve put a couple examples of our art since drawing with the cintiq. The first is a drawing of Isaac’s, his backgrounds are getting richer and full of life. The next example is from one of my comics, Boots the cat getting a better line treatment now that we have the Cintiq.
In other news, Isaac and I are flying down to Wellington at the end of this week for Wellington Zinefest. We’re super excited to be in Welly again, this will only be my second trip to our capital city! So excited to be back, it’s such an amazing city.
We’ll be on a table for IZS selling zines, prints and pins, but I also plan to sneak a few of my ceramics on the table so if you’re a fan, make sure you check it out.
I’d just like to gush about the Zinefest scene in New Zealand for a quick moment. Since we’ve started attending them, we’ve met the coolest collection of people and made some really awesome friends. At every Zinefest I’ve been to there has been such an awesome vibe and such an appreciation for all artforms, from stall holders and festival goers alike. Being native to Auckland, this will be our first time going to Wellington Zinefest and I simply can’t wait, it’s going to be a fantastic event. I’m really looking forward to meeting new people, catch up with friends and hopefully put some faces to the names I see on twitter every day. If you know us from our comics or my ceramics, or if you’ve seen us loitering on Twitter, please come say ‘hello’. My husband and I would love to meet you!
I hope you all have a lovely week
Peace out babes
