IT'S ABOUT ART, FANDOM AND LIFE!

Shipping Dragons ist ein Label, das ich ursprünglich mit meinen beiden besten Freundinnen für Cosplay gestartet habe. Wir sind Kinder der 80er und 90er und wir sind Geeks, wir besuchen Cons, sammeln Fandomzeug und reden über fiktive Figuren als wären sie real. Was sie für uns auch sind.
Aber ich bin auch Autorin und Designerin und in den letzten Monaten ist das Bedürfnis, Kunst als Teil meines Lebens zu machen, sehr stark geworden. Ich habe Romane und Buchcover für große Verlage produziert. Das ist es, womit ich Geld verdiene, nicht annähernd genug, um ehrlich zu sein. Aber das ist nicht, wer ich bin. Ich liebe schöne Dinge. Einige davon beginnen mit P. Ich liebe Porträts, Poesie, Postkarten, Photographie und Gemälde. Außerdem Portwein, Piraten, Porridge und Piccadilly Circus, aber darüber mehr, falls du dich entscheidest, mir zu folgen und mir zu helfen, Zeit und Raum für schöne Dinge zu schaffen wie Gedichte schreiben oder Gesichter zeichnen.

Shipping Dragons is a label I initially started with my two best friends for Cosplay. We are children of the 80's and 90's and we are geeks, we go to Cons, collect fandom stuff and talk about fictional characters as if they were real. They are to us, anyway.
But I am also a writer and designer and over the last few months, the need to make art as part of my life has grown very strong. I have written novels and designed book covers for big publishing houses. That's how I earn money, not nearly enough, to be honest. But it's not who I am. I love beautiful things. Some of them start with a P. I love portraits of faces, poetry, postcards, photography and paintings. Also port, pirates, porridge and Piccadilly Circus, but let's save this for if you decide to follow me and help me to make time and space for beautiful things like writing poems or portray faces. 

Projects für 2019:
1. Lost Paradises Poetry: Poems inspired by beautiful places, that don't exist anymore 
2. The Curry Diaries: Poetry and art journal about obsession
3. Face stories: Ink portraits of fictional characters and poems about them
4. There be dragons: Colored ink dragons with a special twist.
5. The London project: One week doing art classes and drawing events in London and blogging about it.
