Dear Secret Santa,

I am very interested in the mythology and history of the Avatar world, so I would love something like the Fire Lord wall hangings, Equalist propaganda images, traditional-style imagery of the Painted Lady of Jang Hui, the lion turtle or the Blue Spirit.

Cheers and xox!

Message from your santa, Dayuun:

I’m sorry it didn’t come out as traditional as I’d hoped! The text on the right reads ‘Four powers divide the world. Balanced by one’ Hope you like it x)

this is an AWESOME Christmas present! *dances* Dayuun THANKS SO MUCH <3

Started on my MA graduation thesis

And it has one of the best topics I could have picked :D I am researching the translation techniques and methods English translators use when translating Japanese manga. I’ll be focusing on the conundrums of translating texts and words that require a fair amount of creativity.

Right now, my main focus will be sounds since the Japanese language has a massive plethora of sounds available while the English have to be very creative in order to bring the same message across while translating.

So what’s so fun about it?

I’ll be researching One Piece for it >D

Right now, I have the daunting but fun task of writing down all the Japanese sounds that appear in a single OP manga (and that’s a LOT), look up the corresponding sound in the English manga, transcribe them and write down what the sounds are supposed to describe. It’s to look and see if the sounds have a pattern (do some types of noise use a certain vowel?)

Nothing is more fun than using a hobby for science XD

V, this sounds like so much fun. I’m really looking forward to seeing what you discover. I love the challenge when translating from Japanese to English (or, sometimes, to Dutch) of keeping close to the writer’s purpose while making it understandable for your new reader. I like the sense of being a bridge across which the communication will travel between writer and reader.

BUT I’m extra super interested because when it’s sfx in manga rather than a novel, it MUST be not only verbal but also have relevant placement in the panel, timing, shape, typography, and have visual interaction with the rest of the panel. So you can also discuss all those elements.. ugh oh gosh I’m so envious of you right now. 先輩も読みたいから論文書いたらぜっっったい読ませてよねっっ!

Mustache Nail art.

Sooo. In September my friend Roxy had a mustache themed party. Me always looking to avoid working on impending deadlines decided to design my own shirt. Mainly because I just couldn’t find a decent shirt in the shops. While I did that… I had this idea to accessorize  my nails to go with the shirt.

I like to think that I inspired this greatness in you Patopin :D

also, you guys, it must be mentioned that she and Alex brought me a mustache on a stick and a stuffed animal with a top hat and mustache added on. We’re talking about THIS level of greatness <3

Here’s the design for the shopping bags for my store. It’s a parody of the Tokyo metro manner posters . It’s almost ready for print, pls gimme some feedback! ^^

The goal is to give al the disposable packaging a second life. I can’t just not give bags or ship shirts without any form of packaging. So at the very least I don’t want people to throw it away the moment they get it.
