I wish you all a Happy New Year! You already got my end-of-2018-blabla in the latest post, so let’s start with the news!
News and updates
Let’s start with the Wednesday blog posts here, which will be stopped. It may not seem like much to you, but preparing posts every week takes some time and, after reviewing my 2018 productivity as well as current and upcoming projects I wish to focus on, I have decided to take a break from blogging, though I love sharing thoughts with you. Nevertheless, there are still different ways of you to stay updated, depending on your interests:
Manga – IllusFairy published for free with updates twice a week
All my news and projects without exception in a detailed monthly newsletter,
along with other tutorials, sketchbooks, art lessons and more
I’ll never emphasize it enough, but for freelance artists, Patreon is a hugely valuable platform. Your support allows us to support our daily needs, and moreover, slowly move away from commissions and other projects we have to do in order to maintain a living, in order to regain more time and thus focus on creative work that benefits you – more illustrations, more manga pages, more videos, more tutorials, you name it. Don’t forget, through supporting and artist’s work, you are also supporting other people who, like you and me, want to draw and dream. If you’d consider supporting me on Patreon, you’ll get both a bunch of monthly art perks, as wells as my deep gratitude<3
Agenda – Cons & Lessons
New events have been planned for 2019, and as always, you will find them in the Events section. We have a good mixture of conventions, workshops, and an exhibition with two fellow Luxembourgish manga artists – I invite you to have a look at the events to discover more. The section gets regularly updated, so don’t forget to check it regularly if you don’t want to miss anything!
I’m also quickly advertising my art lessons again, for which new spots are open. There is a given program, though the structure is freer and topics may vary according to the students strengths and weaknesses, seeing as the smaller groups allow a more in-depth mentoring for everyone.
New lessons are starting at L’Eclat de Verre (Howald, LU) on January 10th from 15h30-17h30 and will take place every second Thursday. Other lessons are planned in Sanem (LU) on Saturday mornings from 9h30-11h30. You may start any time throughout the entire school year, without commitment – no matter your level in comparison to the other students, I will chose specific topics that fit your personal needs and wants to help you develop your skills!
Please contact me for more info or if you wish to enroll!

Last but not least: Winter Sales are starting! Many discounted products are awaiting you in my Shop: goodies, prints, originals, tutorials and former Patreon downloads, … The offers last during the entire official sales period in Luxembourg, so you have until Saturday 26th January to shop to your heart’s content!
Thank you so much for following this blog over the last year.
Now that it’s stopping, I hope to see you as well on social media or at upcoming events!
