Hello ^_^

I'll be away for a while. My job is taking me to Japan.

Unfortunatly this means I won't be able to draw and post a lot of fanart. I like to think back of the days when I could draw as much as I liked but life is moving on fast and I can't keep up with fandom. I still love the Harry Potter fandom, it's full of the most wonderful people who are nice to each other and create a world of amazing fanfic and fanart, it is a pleasure to be part of it. You are teh cool ;P

Many years ago, when I saw the first Harry Potter film (after being dragged in the cinema by fellow students) I started to look online for other fans. There wasn't much back then and I was lurking in some of the places that have gone now. I wanted to write fanfic, but lacked the talent (and my English was very, very poor). It took me a while to start making fanart, first in illustrator (I didn't have a scanner) and later in aquarell. I started the mneomosyne journal as a holiday treat expecting it to die down after August, but instead you all embraced it and gave me such a warm welcome I stayed.

And remembering those very early days I made a little Snape drawing, just like I would have done in 2001, when I didn't have any idea on how big this would become.




And now I'm off to travel: Amsterdam first, then Tokyo. I'll try to be at the fair (see previous post) and will have some special dates with cool fandomers which I wouldn't have met if it wasn't for Harry Potter.

I'll be the tall foreigner wandering about looking lost. I don't really know anyone all that well, but I'm excited that I can go! :)

Lol, I'll probably notice you soon, I'll be the small foreigner looking too excited to stay on a chair for two seconds.

I'm quite easy to notice at events like that. ^^;;

I can't believe it's only two weeks away! I still have to figure out how to find the place and if I need to fill anything out or can just show up at the door, but I'm too lazy to sift through all the Japanese right now. ^^;

Hey there! Let me know if you'll be in the Kyoto/Osaka area at all. We have spare futons and are always happy to have visitors *g* (Plus we have culture out the wazoo: temples! mountains! er... temples! parks!....)

I'll keep you informed, I'm not sure but I could be traveling a bit, and it's not far with the shinkansen. I once stayed in a temple in Kyoto, it's lovely there, I'll go back as soon as I can find the time. :D

Okay! We do not have temple-like tranquility and ambience... we have painful lego on the floor and squabbling. But we are free! Or it's even easy enough to go into Kyoto or Osaka to Starbucks (and isn't Wacca from around here? *bad memory*)

I remember you from so long ago, and your English has transformed so far that I probably would not guess you weren't a native speaker if I weren't paying REALLY close attention.

I love the Snape picture. It's much more like Rickman than most of yours are, though.

Enjoy Japan. I know how much you love it. My daughter is currently fascinated by all things Japanese. She adores Fullmetal Alchemist. Her room is evolving into Little Japan.

We'll see you when you come back. ♥

(No word yet on the project, but your requests will be honoured completely. You have done so much and I will always be grateful. )

^_^ Thank you, I will enjoy Japan, it's lovely there.

I wish you all the luck with the project and hope your dream comes true.

Oh, I like this Snape! He's different from the one you do now but still has your distinctive style.

Have a great time in Japan! I hope you can come back soon. :-)

I'll miss you! But I'll look forward to the days when you can come back to us, or at least a hopeful post or two to let us know you're alive and well. Your art is beautiful, but if it wasn't for your kindness I'd never have had the guts to comment and get to know you even as little as I do. ♥
