Manga Anime





Your might have noticed the lack of posts, sometimes time runs away with itself and there are not enough hours in the day. I have a shed load of work to do before going to CHA at the end of next week and I have to admit to neglecting the blog, sorry girls, i do feel bad and therefor I will give you a peek of the new delivery we have had in the house of sugar this week. Just need to get them packed and over to Funkykits in the next couple of days.
what is Manga/Anime ? http://www.mit.edu/people/rei/Expl.html



Manga Anime art is creeping into rubber stamps and our home grown artist decided to have a little play, these are the result, what do you think?




I have my own ideas on why these are appealing to cardmakers and after all copic/pro markers were designed for colouring in these comic book characters.
















DT update, sorry I have not been back to the emails, other that a few hours where I was totally frustrated that each one is deserving of a place in our family, but Sugar Nellie can not handle so many DT members, I only wish we could. I have send no invites yet but must do this before leaving next week, stay with me on this one, its really really hard :(

Me and Copics do NOT get along well together, so the Manga's may be designed with copics in mind, but for me, I shall colour with my trusty polychromos. But, do I like the designs? I love them! I will have to buy them all - as usual. Can't wait to see them for sale, I shall be stalking again.
Hope you all have a fab time in Florida.
Lots of love

Oh, these are wonderful! So different in style but simply stunning. Love the sitting one the most.
I know how hard deciding on the DT must be - the more since you are caring so much about your DT members and would love to have each and every one of the ones that made it to that point. Am thinking of you.
Hugs,
Kathrin aka Kruemel

Oh, WOW! These are GREAT! I can't wait to get these. They remind me of something from back around the 1960's but I can't remember who did them. The kids all had the big eyes and sometimes maybe a tear falling. Can any body remember those? LOL! I am definitely giving away my age with this comment!

Gunilla said...

Love these manga, want all 4.
When my dayghter left for a half year studies in Japan in the end of June the last thing she took from her room was her rg doll I made for her when she was one, she's 20 now and I told her she couldn't take "Ella" beacause she was laready loaded and up to her 20 kilos, I don't mind she said, I'll carry her. I'd love to have been able to see the customs when they saw a 20 year old girl with a doll in her arms. I must have at least that manga girl with the doll!!

Naomi (Sugar Brown) said...

Rodney said...

Love the new anime stamps BUT...where's the girl who's sitting? She's not listed under the new products, that's the one I REALLY wanted!! When will she be released??

Etsy Ketsy said...

Hey, I just found your stamps! I like the style of the manga, but I am having a hard time deciding what sentiments would go best with each of them.
