Triangle Collar Bowknot Jacket at Chic Star.com

current location: Switzerland

We haven't posted in a while but I am glad to say that a lot of new opportunities have opened up one of which is designing clothing for Chic Star.

It is fun and on the plus side I get to wear clothing that I designed. There is a lot of Pin-up, Gothic and Victorian inspired clothing as well as everyday wear. It is a great site that offers unique clothing at VERY reasonable prices.

Below you can see a top that I designed and it is now on sale at ChicStar.com. It is a Victorian inspired triangle collared jacket that comes in black/white pin-stripe, red/black pin-stripe black and my favorite, burgundy. The pin-stripe designs have a little bit of stretch to them so I ordered a size smaller than my normal size.  The ruffles and small bow-knot adds a little something special

Check out the picture, visit the site and if you are an aspiring designer then sign up and start submitting your great ideas!

Peace and love to all this holiday season and beyond!

Schwarzwaelder Kirschentorte! It's ALIVE!!!

So my dearies...where to begin! The last post being  2007?! OMG....too long, much too long in between posts, days, whatevah...

A lot has happened as many of you are aware, or NOT! David and I are in Switzerland! Yes, home of William Tell, Isabelle Eberhardt, CHOCOLATE, CHEESE, The Geneva Convention and YES....CERN otherwise known as the BLACK HOLE experiment (layman's terms!) The END or the BEGINNING, Star Gates, Mayan Prophecy and once in a lifetime Galactic Movements and Alignments (no thanx, i don't need laxatives) depending on how you look at the CERN experiment. Could this be the bridge/wormhole that the Egyptians mention in the tale of Osiris...? AWESOME! I AM HERE! Or am I...?

So, work is slowly making  it's way up on my priority list....don't tell David, it's not quite at the top, YET. How can one work with sooooo much beauty, excitement, HISTORY, unusual and UNIQUE archetecture, incredible, accommodating, thrilling and some of the most lovely people on the planet, Ooooh and the endless landscapes where Heaven clings to Earth with immortal strength!

K, the cute 'lil mountain goats do take the place of the mischievous raccoons of the USA and the martins/martens sneak in our sweet Swiss chalet  only to play reindeer games with the dogs...Oh, excuse me huendli, that's little dogs in Swiss German btw, everything is diminutive in Swiss German, HOW CUTE!

Yes, the Swiss make EVERYTHING CUTE (i'm cute! I"M CUUUUUTE and I'll definitely make Santa's reindeer team this year!)

Lime Manga is still ALIVE and PUTTN' ON THE RITZ in a Young Frankenstein-ish kinda way! We are revamping EVERGREY and YARU (BOTH series are VERY much alive with a lot more in the way of plot and sub-plots, INCREDIBLE premise, deep character development and SUPERB art... if your into Vampires, Witches, Egyptian GODS, the Afterlife, Bi-shonen, Whoa-Shonen, Alle-Shonen...K, I'm getting corny as all get over (so eighties) but 'tis true and coming from the land of "I cannot tell a LIE" *cough, choke gasssp* I, my brethren, DO NOT LIE....after all it DOES come back!

We are also gearing up for FRANCE, ya heard of it...? A land where art is held in the highest of esteem, artists are acknowledged and worshiped for sharing their dreams, visions incredible story telling, skills, talent and well, it's kinda like that all around these here parts!

ART is NOT the first thing the government cuts in order to support...uuuh, well, I will NOT express political issues, morals and values here, after all this IS about entertainment and expression, love and life,  all within the visual and literary arts!


Forgive me, I was amused, enmeshed and entangled in a daydreamy state inspired by the divine cantana of NATURE! The range and melody of the many cowbells on the misty glaucous countryside, the sweet, SWEET scent of the unwonted flowers of the aestival equinotical harvest and the nocturnally migrating songbirds all hold my willing soul captive...I have surrendered! If it's willing can it be captive...? Captivated...?

As some or none may have heard, we are working with some very PROMINENT and well established, TALENTED and INSPIRING artists in the U.S. and soon ALL shall be revealed! I KNOW Europe WILL fall in LOVE with the heartfelt works of these eternally bewitching souls. Of course we shall leave it to them to post their endeavours and  much deserved accomplishments....it SHALL BE SO!

So, so....more to come, alles gut and here are a few pictures of the Heavenly Swiss landscape, me in a castle and Big Guy with my mom on the road!

Most positive thoughts and wishes of JOY, HAPPINESS, HEALTH and LOVE to ALL!

Well, I don't even know where to start! The NYC Anime Festival was AWESOME! We accomplished everything we set out to do and MORE!

So, first off the convention was fun, tiring but fun...why can't these shows start at midnight...? As I told kethylia, I'm the DON'T GO INTO THE LIGHT kinda grl. I usually do my best works between twelve and two a.m.....for real! Anyways, there were like, 10-15 thousand peeps who attended the NYC Anime Festival this year...good for us, we sold out of almost everything.

David and I had two new books printed up for the show. We put the Live Journal posts into a diary format with new art and previews for book two of both YARU and EVERGREY! It was kinda cool 'cause we also included the story/concept along with character descriptions and illustrations.

A lot of very nice people stopped by to visit and chat it up...Oh, and thanks to everyone who picked up some of our goodies, support is EVERYTHING to us. So many nice comments about our work inspires us all the more!

Brigid Alverson  from mangablog was like the first one over...so nice to see her again, I think I was all out of sorts when we spoke last year at MangaNext, so I'm glad to have reconnected. She did a very nice in depth interview with us. Calvin Reid and Heidi MacDonald (The Beat) from PW's Comic Week also stopped by and said that they were gonna publish Brigid's interview in the Publisher's Weekly Newsletter...WOW I can't believe Brigid actually made sense outta my words...I'm tellin'   ya, I was like NON STOP!

Full report and photos after the cut!

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

Last Thursday I broke taniadelrio's X-Box (-12 points). In October I ruled Iran as a cruel and heartless dictator (-700 points). In November I ruled Asscrackistan as a kind and benevolent dictator (700 points). Last Wednesday I had a shoot-out with rival gang lords on the 5 near LA (-76 points). In March I gave madb0mber a kidney (1000 points).

Overall, I've been nice (912 points). For Christmas I deserve a shiny red ball!

Well....we knew it but now a lot of other people know...EVERGREY is coming out in the USA in 2008!

Tokyopop USA will announce the exact date but we were told March 2008....who knows. It is funny 'cause there are so many different interpretations of what the story is about. One panel report on IGN.com mentioned something about Vampires and Elves. I'll clear it up right now...NO ELVES! 

We love elves but this book does not feature elven content! It is a Gothic Romance...forbidden love, Vampires, Witches a touch of BL and a heavy dose of Fantasy!

The creators are Lime Manga: Mary Hildebrandt , writer and David Boller, artist!

So...my head is spinning...so sad, the only excuse I can give is working between Vampires, Egyptian Gods, Witches, Humans, Ghosts the Afterlife this life no life and all life....whatever..it's a wild ride for sure!

Enjoy a few pages from Evergrey, Book Two...

Vampires Armand, Darius and Xavier with their Lures (Lure: no longer Human and not yet a full Vampire).  Calisto the long blond haired Lure belongs to Xavier.

Lures are created for the sole purpose of pleasing their Masters...they hold no rank within the Consanguinean Council of the Nostromo Vampire clan.

Xavier with Armand and his Lure Tristan.
