How has everyone’s Valentine’s weekends gone? 🙂 Mine was brilliant, my lovely boyfriend gave me some truly kick-ass comics and a beautiful bouquet of InfiniteRoses – they are specially preserved and can last for up to a year! (more…)

Time Flies When You’re Having Fun

Wow!  Where the heck has the time gone?  Seriously!?  Hey ho, at least at this rate Halloween will get here quicker (one of my favourite holidays!). 🙂  Now onto my news of the day… (more…)

All Set for Overload!

My manga is finished and now I’m working on the finshing touches to my A4 comic strip prints that will be sent to the printers tomorrow morning.  The Overload Convention this Saturday should be a blast and I can’t wait to rant all about it next week (as well as share with you what I produced for the day).

Until then, what better way to celebrate this glorious Thursday than by sharing a low quality video of the characters from The Office dancing crazily to ‘Boogie Wonderland’?  Let’s do this.  ಠ‿ಠ

Manga, In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida, Darth Vader and the Chipmunk

Yeesh!  The print deadline for my comic has been extended (due to a last-minute printing issue) to this Thursday morning so I’m still working away making the relevant changes but oh well.  “S#%t happens” as they say. 😛

It’s going to be an exciting feeling waking up on Saturday, 28 September at it will be the day I exhibit at the Overload Comic and Manga Convention and show off some of my drawings on one of the artist alley tables.  I already feel a bit nervous about it but the main thing is that I’m there to have fun and bask in the glorious light that is anime and manga fandom so it’s going to be a guaranteed day of excitement and laughs! 😀 (more…)

All Work and No Play Makes Marina a Dull Girl

It’s been crazily hectic lately I tells ya!  I’m currently working on finishing a small comic I’m entering into a competition this month and my deadline for printing is 12 September (I’m getting there slowly but surely…).  I woke up this morning feeling more stressed than ever about the pressure of it all when I went for a nice walk in the sun, while listening to this song, and now I feel more refreshed and motivated than ever!

Now with that out of the way, it’s back to work for good ol’ Marina (so I have tomorrow free for fun).  Take care and have a fantastic weekend everybody! 😀

Why I Wash My Hair With Beer

Finally.  FINALLY I’ve been able to fit in the time to write a post this week.  It’s been crazy in my new job I tells ya, there’s just so much to learn!  Luckily I have some lovely co-workers to help me out and I’ve still got training sessions ahead of me – it has all been very challenging but I suppose that at least I’m exercising my brain. 😉 (more…)
