Sheith drawings

So, I watched Voltron season 6. And it made me so emotional. I loved the animation and the storytelling, both have improved so much since the first episode.

To nobody’s surprise I felt the need to draw my two favourite boys after watching the new season. I guess I’ll just use this post to collect all my random drawings of them for now.

Arisupaints at Dokomi 2018

From May 19th to 20th I’ll be in the art alley at Dokomi convention in Düsseldorf, Germany.

Come visit me for a new-ish original manga, Voltron and Yuri on Ice goodies, prints and posters! ♥ I’m really excited to be there, come say hi!

KOSMOS Experimentierkästen

If there’s anything I love it’s receiving proofs of things I have worked on.
These are two of the KOSMOS experiment boxes that I got to work on recently, one box being My first car, which includes a little picture book I illustrated, and the other one being My first experimenting kit, where I supplied a few drawings to explain experiments.
I really enjoy doing this kind of work, and it’s lovely to see the finished product come together.

Sheithlentines Exchange 2018

I participated in this year’s Sheithlentines exchange, a Valentine’s event in the Voltron/Sheith fandom. The request I filled in asked for the story of the team finding out about Shiro’s and Keith’s relationship, and I couldn’t help but make it silly. XD

Inktober 2017

This year I decided to ignore the rules and use Inktober to try out different digital pens and practice my digital inking. As usual I didn’t manage to draw a picture every day, but at least I found some settings for inking that I feel comfortable with. I think I’ll be back to traditional inking next year.

Also, I got a little excited about Shiro and Keith from Voltron recently, so, uh, bear with me here. :D


Otayuri AU zine – Yuri!!! on Ice fanzine preview

Inktober 2016

Here are my drawings for Inktober 2016!
I chose couples as my theme this year. I was supposed to draw 31 images, but as usual I never really got that far.

The drawings were created with Deleter pens, and I used a small Moleskine notebook this time. It wasn’t ideal for drawing, as the ink bled through on several pages. I’ll have to think of something new next year.

Still, it is a fun exercise. Maybe I’ll make it to 31 next year.

MangaMixx 10: Traumfänger

 Ich habe vor langer Zeit mal berichtet, dass Andrea Bottlinger und ich eine Kurzgeschichte namens Traumfänger beim Connichi Doujinshi-Wettbewerb eingeschickt haben, und dass diese im MangaMixx-Sammelband veröffentlich werden würde.

Es hat eine Weile gedauert, aber jetzt ist der MangaMixx 10 endlich erschienen, und ich durfte die gedruckte Fassung unserer Geschichte auf der letzten Connichi in den Händen halten. :D Der MangaMixx ist voller interessanter Kurzgeschichten! Ihr könnt euch eure Ausgabe in den kommenden Tagen im Animexx Webshop und in etlichen Bahnhofsbuchhandlungen sichern.

Eine Leseprobe von Traumfänger findet ihr hier!

English tl;dr: MangaMixx #10 is finally out, and you can now read Andrea Bottlinger’s and my short story Traumfänger when you purchase your own book at the Animexx web store. You can read a (German) preview here.




On a personal note

Just married!

I got married last weekend. ♡

Updated Con schedule 2016

Thanks to everyone who visited my booth at all the conventions this summer! I had a blast!

I especially enjoyed Japan Expo, it was so great to talk to fans from all over the world. I feel honored that people would actually visit my tiny table at such a huge con. (I can’t even begin to tell you how often I got lost in the convention centre!) I really hope I can go again next year.

Now, a lot has happened recently, and I’ve had to update my convention schedule a little. I will have a table at Connichi in Kassel this September, but I will not be able to visit the Comic Cons in Berlin and Dortmund. I hope I can make it again next year, though!

Updated schedule for this autumn:

Connichi in Kassel: September 16-18
German Comic Con in Berlin: October 15-16
German Comic Con in Dortmund: December 2-4
