The Festival de la BD de Contern will take place this week-end – are you excited? Because I totally am, with a big surprise I’ve been working on over the last few months for you: a completely new assortment is awaiting you! All my elder artwork have been removed, to make place for new motives, new goodies, new prints, and even a new booth setup. Let’s have a look at this;)
9 new motives are waiting for you – what would be a convention without our beloved bookmarks? Though I didn’t intend to use them, many of you asked for the Queen series, so some of them are now available – they are limited to 25 copies each and no reprint is planned, so make sure to grab yours this week-end or in the shop;)
A5 Glossy Prints & Posters
A dozen of new posters have also been printed, most of them with my 4 Seasons Tea artwork, the Queen series as many of you requested, and some other motives. There will still be a few A5 glossy prints for sale (see motives below), but I will most probably stop offering them on conventions and keep them for Patreon Supporters or Shop exclusivities. Why? I’ve found a much better alternative… let’s jump to the next section!
A4 High Quality Textured Prints
While thinking about how I could improve the quality of my prints for you, I tried new prints on A4 textured paper and was stunned myself by the result: it looks completely like an original, with little variation on the colours and texture – due to its grained paper, those prints’ rendering is the best you can get. If you were hesitating to get an original artwork due to its higher price, here’s the almost similar, more affordable alternative. Some of the illustrations are currently only available in this format and will remain like this, allowing you to get your hands on a limited motive!
For every A4 print purchase, you will also receive a little additional gift print – isn’t that one more reason to fetch one? ; )
Queen Sticker Sheets
Yes, the Queens are everywhere 8D I got some problems with the sticker machine I bought a few months ago, and since people appreciated the stickers, I turned them into a proper sticker sheet.
As announced last time, the tote bags are always limited to allow a more unique motives – there are three new ones, Justitia and Autumn Rooibos being limited to around 20 copies. The print is once again injected into the cloth and of washmachine-friendly quality, so that your tote bag can accompany you anywhere!
The last few “Queen” Tote Bags are still available in my shop, for those who’d like to get one of those.
Badges were also among the products I didn’t intend to recreate, but as my old stock got raided during my last few events and people asked for more… here we go! You will find 3 different duos in cute packages handmade with love <3 Once again, limited prints with a dozen packages for each series!
Why so many limited products? I have been attending conventions for almost 4 years now – of course, I have made mistakes and learnt along the way. One of my biggest miscalculations were always that I printed too much. The cost of some “unpopular” products was sometimes high, and I kept a huge stock in my attic without knowing what to do with it. Printing smaller quantities brings along benefits for both me and you – it allows me to test new products without investing too much, and allows you to get more limited and unique items. Let’s face it, isn’t it boring to see the same pieces of artwork over years and years?
Anyways … other “regular” products are still available as well, such as my manga and recent artbook, as well as handcrafted notebooks and on-the-spot commissions. I have also printed new goodies for the surprise packages, starting with long maxi-bookmarks – along with an original artwork, you will now get only special prints which are not, and will never be, available on my booth. So, whatever you buy, you can be sure that you won’t have twice the same things!
– A3 posters are, unfortunately, not available since the shipping fees are almost twice the price of the print itself. But if you’d like to discover everything or if you can’t attend the convention, maybe you’d want to take a look at it, and I hope you’ll enjoy all those news!
I’m waiting for you this week-end in the sports hall of Contern from 10h-18h!
See you soon : D
