Hey...
I was away from Deviant for a loooooooooooooooong time, but it's nice to be back! Anyway, I'm still not in Canada, but it's for this year I hope!
Also, I'm getting married this summer :)!!

Other news..well I've been working on a blog and a website, which I've made for fun!

My blog is about bento, these cute and trendy Japanese lunchboxes. It's "Mari-chan's Vegan Bento"

mari-chan-veganbento.blogspot.… mari-chan-veganbento.blogspot.com

My website is "Senbatsuru, fold a crane and make a wish", and with it I'm trying to get lots of people to make origami Japanese cranes so we could have 1000 in total on the website. Everyone makes a crane, takes a picture and submits it on my website (along with their wish!). I add the picture of their crane, add the wish separately in a big anonymous list of wishes, and that's it! Once we get the 1000 cranes, maybe all the wishes will come true...?

senbatsuru.yolasite.com/ senbatsuru.yolasite.com

Feel free to come and add your own crane and wish!

Anyway, enough with that, I've got tons of messages to read and deviations to watch!

Hey!
So much has been happening lately I've only just realised my last entry was in February...
I've got tons of deviant watch, 4589 to be more precise:), to browse (and comment!) while trying to keep up with contributing to my groups.
I finally received news from the Canada immigration bureau and it looks like I could move there and become a permanent Canadian in around a year! Yeah!! After 3 years' waiting.

Also I'll be away in Paris in 4 weeks cosplaying at the japanexpo convention as Yorda (with Ico:)of course). I can't wait to be there!! It should be so much more fun than waiting for spring here on the North coast of Scotland!!

I still continue to watch all my friends' art, even if I don't reply often, and I hope to be a little bit more present in the future:)

Have a great summer all!

OK...here I go! I don't have enough people I know on DA that I can tag and that it means I'm gonna start by breaking one of the rules...oh well...

rules
1 post these rules
2 each tagged person must post 8 things about themselves on their journal
3 At the end you have to choose 8 people to tag, and post their icon on the same journal
4 Go to their page and send a message saying you tagged them
5 NO tag-backs.


8 random facts about me

1 I am the happiest person in the world! (it's true, not just an image :))
2 I am the most in love person in the world (also true and the reason for number1!) since I found my soulmate ("la personne rien que pour Tchiii!")
3 I'm a vegan because I love all animals and want to do as much as I can for them.
4 I have done (and loved!) ballet dancing since I was 5, which makes it more than 20 years!
5 I'm so shy and socially inadept that when I was little I got that pompom thing in a merry-go-round but I didn't know how to react so I hid in my carriage.
6 I hibernate in the winter!
7 I was born just in time for Groundhog's Days (and "la Chandeleur!")
8 My two favourites video games are Final Fantasy X and Ico.

Ok and now for the rule-breaking part. I'm gonna tag

Hey!

I've finally got round to co-writing/illustrating my first manga: the Star Garden. The story is from my one and only love ^_^ and he's helping me with adapting the scenario from the novel he wrote a few years ago. I hope my version lives up to his expectations...!
We'll see...In any case I feel motivated to illustrate it through to the end.

I already had a few pages of random scenes I had done as conceptual art/chara-design more than serious pages so this is really how it begins...

A little late..but a happy New Year to all and lots of dreams come true in 2010!

Thank you to Kitsuneshi and ShadowShadow20 (o_o I don't even know how to add your avatars...please help if you got time), my first 2 "deviant watchers" (I prefer to call you friends ^_^)! Thanks for the nice comments, presents, and well done for your beautiful work in 2009. I'm looking forward to seeing what you'll do in 2010!

Personal notes:
-Kitsuneshi Je trouve que tes dessins sont super jolis et parfois meme encore mieux presentés maintenant que tu t'es mise au digital (ecritures, etc)! Alors continue comme ca!!
-ShadowShadow20 I'm really really sorry I can't write anything in your language because I'm not intelligent enough (...)...so Happy New Year! I really like your gallery of animal pics and I hope you'll add more this year!!

Et voila ^_-!

Yipeeeee! I can't wait to open my presents and see what my boyfriend thinks of what I've got for him!!!

Just a few more days and the wait will be over, phew... (I'm really worse than a kid aren't I?)

Long cuddly afternoons, hot chocolate, winter walks, doodles, lazying, all of this will be my main occupations for the next 2 weeks!
I'm finally becoming a full-time jewellery designer as I've been able to quit my other job and made arrangements to dedicate my working time to my workshop! That feels good ^_^.
I guess I'll be posting quite a few new pieces of jewellery then, and I'll hope I'll get lots of comments from other devious artists out there!

Please feel free to check out my work on my website, NEZUMIZ.COM www.nezumiz.com

Apart from jewellery, well, I'm working steadily through my self-taught initiation to manga drawing so I should be able to post a few things in that medium, too.

I've only just begun digital drawing/painting with Wacom/Corel 11. It really started when I had the chance to test the tablets in Japanexpo this summer in Paris. I'm growing to really like this medium, although it's a bit hard to start, especially when you're not a techie geek at all...
