Fanime Artist Alley


Hi everyone! Several heart-stopping scares and weeks of undue stress later, it's just been confirmed -- Fanime 2014 is a go! :squee: I'll see you in the Artist Alley there on Memorial Day weekend, May 23 - 26. I'll have updates with my table number when that information becomes available to us.


This year, we will have lots of exciting new things, including new prints as always, plus freshly designed bows, lolita headdresses, steampunk necklaces, miniature top hats, and visual kei masks! Of course, all of your favorites from past years will also be there, such as our sweet kawaii ring collection, deco nail sets, hair bows, and a brand new line of visual kei ties for 2014! Check out my shop to get a very small glimpse of the huge selection we will have available!


My table will also include a premium selection of kanzashi from SincerelyLove. She will have tons of amazing new designs for both the simple and the extravagant con-goer. Many of her pieces will debut as Fanime exclusives before even going online. Be sure to buy one before they're gone!


You guys have made every single past year absolutely awesome; Thank you all so much for all your support, and I can't wait to see you all again!


In the meanwhile, be sure to watch me and/or follow my Facebook page to get instant updates when new art gets posted or when convention info (like table numbers) is released!




Love, as always,

Zhen Yue 珍月

Greetings: 

Thank you very much for the kind comments and thank you very much for adding my works to your list of favourites! I really appreciate your support. To the best of my ability, I will work forward to bring you more Chinese-themed papercuts. 

With many thanks,

Your works definitely deserve it, and the pleasure is mine to support your papercutting. I have a small collection of papercuts I've accumulated over the years, but it would be nice to contribute to the art as you do. Would you happen to have any suggestions for starting papercutting?

Once again, thank you very much for your very kind words. 

Do I have any suggestions for starting a papercut...
...well, in a way, yes. I wrote this article earlier last year: fav.me/d6jk5ut as a way to introduce the dA community to the more traditional forms of papercutting (it saddens me and gladdened me at the same time knowing that there is a small group of artists on dA that produce Chinese-themed papercuts, but the number is really small.) I have also included a number of tutorials at the bottom which might help. The communal aspect of Chinese papercutting is that the older patterns themselves are not regulated, as there were no "original artists" to be found. It means it's perfectly OK to pick up old traditional patterns to practice with. And I usually tell people to start with simpler patterns and go "big" at the beginning, then gradually work your way to more complicated works on a smaller scale. 

I hope this helps!

Thank you very much for your advice. I'll definitely take a look at your article when I have the chance to give papercutting a shot, and I'll keep your advice for researching Chinese opera in mind too. If you've got some resources you can recommend for learning about opera, I'd really appreciate it! English or Chinese is fine. I'll do my best in terms of being one of the fans that keep these ancient art forms alive, and I look forward to your future works.
