Did you know...


... Seattle is love? So rejuvenated. Want to get back and draw-draw-draw more.

A glimpse of what I'm working on:

I'll be making it into a free postcard for everybody, soon <3

Proper update later, when more sane. There is cheesecake cupcakes, anarchist bookshops and much goodness.

YEAHH i was thinking of this when you asked about the postcards.

uhmm all the stuff i did was sent to a printing shop, and cut by them.

printing shop like that don't usually make prints in the size you want; they print by A3, A4, and all those other standard sizes. so if you want to print a bunch of things, you should compile it onto an A3 or A4 sized soft copy document before giving it to them to print. if you're not so sure how to do that, you may be able to give your documents to the shop, and they'll figure out how to arrange everything for you in the best way possible on the standard paper.

because you can print your stuff on papers of varying thickness, i guess you can opt for 195 gsm thickness paper or above, so that it's as thick as an ordinary postcard. you can also choose to print on a matt or a glossy sort of paper so that'll be fun to choose as well.

the printing shop i went to had front-to-back printing services, so maybe you could find a similar service in the print shops in canada?? the front could have your design and the back could be the standard postcard template. if they don't offer this kind of service, you could always just draw the template out yourself i guess??! XDD



hope this helped somewhat!

Okay, thank you muchly! I was mostly wondering if I should go to a printing service (UPS), or go to a fine arts printer (some overcharged gallery) to get my pictures done as prints. I'd like them on fine arts heavyweight paper, so the texture shows through :3

Postcard other-stuff help is appreciated! I think, in the end, I may use my own printer + cardstock :P. Seeing my printer is turning everything green, it's nice to knwo that option is available.

Thanks again, dear <3 Tell me if you want the zines. I think you can give the money to my cousin, who's going to be doing my Singapore transactions for me? If you're interested, I'll give you her email.

Hmm... you can mail her the money, or meet-up at a MRT at a certain time when you happen to be going out. Her email is hi_howdoyoudo@hotmail.com. Contact her if you're interested :P I've already told her about you.
