Hey everyone. I've been meaning to post a recap of AX earlier this month, but I've spent the last few weeks getting ready for my move to England (I'm here now looking for a place!) and I'm still a crazy kind of busy. I've got a few important Pon&Zi updates that I'm kind of excited to share with you guys though, so I'll get to those now and post a recap of AX as soon as I can! <3

PON&ZI UPDATES
I've begun a new Pon&Zi project! Lately, I've been getting a lot of emails from people asking to purchase original Pon&Zi drawings. I don't sell the originals from published comics, and it takes a while to do custom work, especially when it's in a larger format, so I thought of a solution for people who are looking for something special. Each season, I'll be releasing a limited edition print with a design created exclusively for that print. (The artwork will never be printed on anything ever again.) Each print will be limited to a quantity of 100, signed and numbered by hand on the back, and then laminated to preserve the colors.

I released the first print (Summer theme) at Anime Expo earlier this month, and it has nearly sold out. The remaining few are available through the shop at azuzephre.net, but at this rate, they won't be around for too much longer. Click the preview image to be taken to the shop for more details. <3

<img src="img.photobucket.com/albums/v17…"  border="0" alt="Limited Edition Print" />

On to other news, I just wanted to let you guys in on a few secrets. I'm finally getting Pon and Zi plushies made, and if everything stays on schedule, they'll be available well before Christmas and Valentines Day. Exciting!

I'm also working on a Pon and Zi Artbook! I'm not sure exactly what else to include inside though, so I need your help! I'm about to post a poll, and it'd help me out a lot if you could let me know what other section would be best to add to the collection of comics. Thanks in advance!

loving the hot air balloon print. I've always loved Hot Air Balloon by Owl City, and the print sort of reminds me of the song. not to mention the artwork is gorgeous!
The background birds were a neat subtle touch.
hehe, I know this journal is old, but I'm behind on messages as usual. :P
can't wait to see the new fall print ^^

Miss you too!

I only just now saw your DM on twitter because the app for my phone doesn't have a DM tab anymore for some reason.

Like I'm sure I told you at AX, Matt and I will be back in November, and I think it would be amazing if we could meet up for coffee/sprinkles or something. : )

I hope everything's well on your end!

I'm loving it here. It's refreshing to be in a place where not every square inch is paved and accounted for, and the weather (hardcore thunderstorm at the moment) is my favorite kind.

I have to admit though, that I am missing InNout, driving and of course, my family.

And yep! Hamelin's product line has been out for months now, and people are starting to report spotting them in shops. I haven't stumbled upon any myself yet, but we're staying in a little town for now. : )

Keep in touch!

Hun if I could find a way to get some In N Out to you and know it would still be hot and nommy I would. I know the burgers say hot for a while, but 12 hours, yeeeah.

It's good to hear you're enjoying yourself. :) You deserve happiness and relaxation. Miss you lots! :huggle:

And what a cleverly wonderful idea with the art, not to mention the plushes are just as an exciting touch :] I can just imagine the two of them sitting on your art desk together

Again, I am happy for you and hope you find a comfy place in England

I thought I ought to let you know that I spotted an art gallery here in London selling Pon & Zi prints. would I be right to assume they're doing so unlicensed? I gt a couple of photos of the window display with the Pon & Zi prints; I can get further details if you like?

Pon and Zi stretched canvas prints were licensed for sale in the UK until recently. If they were small or not on canvas though, I'd like to see these photos. : ) Thanks so much!
