SPX 2010 - report

SPX 2010 was a BLAST!
It was nice and all last year, but, well, let's just say things get better all the time ^^

I went up to the Capitol (of Sweden, which is Stockholm) a few days ahead and spent some lurwely time with my artist friends I haven't seen in tooo long :) (thanks for having me! <3)


FRIDAY the 23rd of April

Friday was the release- party for The Swedish Comic Sin anthology-book project! :D
At Debaser, Medis, Stockholm :)

My, that's some SMOKIN' HOT books! ;D

Thanks to everyone who stopped by!
(and those who wanted to, but was unable to)
(in picture, editor for the project; Natalia Batista, talking to Gunnar Krantz, Hedvig Häggman-Sund and Joakim Gunnarsson)

Sexy comic artists Nathalie Nilsson ("Dryspell" in the SCS) and Hannah Oredsson ("Jealous" in the SCS).

Four out of the five Think Ink girls were present in Stockholm! :D
Here with Hedvig.
(Fanny, Hedvig, Nathalie, Amanda and Diana)

We had a small exhibition of the art from the book on the walls in the bar.

Mayor Malfunction boys + Simon.
(Anders Johansson, Simon Andersson, Pär and Johan Palm).

We called it a pretty early night, wanting to be all refreshed and read for the next fanzine-filled day :)

(if you missed buying the book at the the party; just drop me an email (fannnyn(a)gmail.com) and I'll make arrangements to have it sent to you!)


SATURDAY the 24th of April

The Think Ink table! :D
(Diana, Amanda, me and Nat)
We had our all-new studio fanzine; "Think Ink - this is the s#it" (number 4), plus individual projects such as my Silver Pearl and Diana's Birger Jarl comic.

Saturday night was the Galago party :DDD Dancing FTW! <3
Here, loosing up with Maria Wigelius, Adrielle Farr and Johnie Ekman! Precious, sparkling ladies! (Edward has nuthin' on you!)


SUNDAY the 25th of April

Diana and I at the Think Ink table. Coffee and CocaCola is needed <3

Tomas Antila signing the fanzine I bought from him :D

The Dotterbolaget table! :D
Oh, such colorful fanzines!
Great job at finishing the "Best Of"-fanzine on time, ladies! It looked real fine! <3

Sarah Kläpp sat next to our table :) She sure is something else! Check her out!

The PonnyKlubben and Serieskolan fanzine tables! :)
(Maria Wigelius, Johnie Ekman, Joakim Waller and David Linde)

The GAMAJO team! :D
Oh, such talented, lovely fun and alltogether great girls! X)) Tons of hugs to you! <3
(Gabrielle Nilsson, Emma Selberg och Maria Fröhlich)

Lastly, I got to spend a few hours with Anders, drinking coffee and eating a blueberry muffin in Gamla Stan (the pretty, old part of town). Just the two of us <3
(I couldn't make a straight face in the picture, so I made a stupid one XD (the SPX-building seen in the bg))

(let's just ignore the 8 hour trip home on the freezing train without any sleep, and say it was an all over good trip ^^;)

Once again, thank you to everyone who stopped by at the SCS-party and our fanzine table! It was real good seeing ya'll and I hope to do so soon again! :3

Peace, love, over and out!

Silver Pearl - all done and sent to the printer!

Hooray! Finally I'm done!

I've been working hard to finish on time, and now, I can proudly tell ya'll that I've succeeded!
Silver Pearl is all done and sent to the printer. I can hardly wait until I have the finshed product in my hands. :)It will be avaiable at SPX (Small Press Expo) in Stockholm, Sweden, in a few weeks. Shortly after that, I will put it up for purchase through my homepage.

This is the coverart for my latest comic-book fanzine; Silver Pearl.
Follow young Sir William Weatherfield, the bitter first son of the British Prime Minister, as he finds love in the most unexpected of places..
It's a story about high expectations, pressure, distrust, friendship and love, or more really the main characters doubt; that there is no such thing as true love. There's only power, money and influence..

Can't wait for the printed version? Read it online here; http://silverpearl.smackjeeves.com.
(updated twice a week (Tuesdays and Thursdays))

I hope you'll enjoy this story, it is very precious to me.

Another sneak-peek! :D

Working like crazy to finish the book so that it can be sent to the print-shop tomorrow!
Still, I have to write the ''extras'' and I keep finding small stuff I want to change, but I guess there'll never be a thing such as perfection.. :/

Well, I just finished the cover! :D *happiness*
So, here I am, taking a quick break to give ya'll a sneak-peek! (this is just a part of the whole picture)
Had fun playing with water-colors again!

So, just work work work! There's that deadline to catch!
(and, I just found out the Arabic translation was wrong; I had messed up all the letters X// Bummer! Well, ah, I just have to make the corrections. Good thing I found out NOW and not after printing! (thanks Andreas for all the help!))

*high on sugar and "pucko"(idiot)-coco drink*

Tillbaka från en underbar resa till Japan, mangans och ninjans förtrollande land!
Ett välutfört bloginlägg om detta kommer i sinom tid..

MEN! Först skall boken, Silver Pearl, sättas ihop och skickas till tryck så att den är klar i tid till SPX (small press expo, en seriemässa) i Sthlm i slutet av april. Ingen rast och ingen vila, här inte!

Här kommer så en liten smygtitt på lineart;en till omslaget;

Skall nu sätta mig och måla i akvarell för att få riktigt shojo-stuk på det hela :)

Peace and love!
