A little kaputt

Oh man. I'm so bad at keeping this up! But we just moved houses (!), my semester is ending next week, and I am indeed a little kaputt. But comics are funnier when life is a little chaotic, so I'll catch up on that soon. Sorry!!

Who are all these people?

Okay, so it might not only be because I'm easily recognizable, but it's been happening quite often lately. Or maybe I just have a bad memory...

Getting an Email

I guess it kind of makes sense considering how many people I lost contact with once I deactivated my Facebook account.

It's hard

The two words that basically summarize the apartment-hunting situation in Berlin.

Some mornings, I'm just a grumpy, grouchy Morgenbüffel. Moo.

*Morgenmuffel: someone who's grouchy in the morning

Obvious Punchline


It's hard to believe that I've been away for nearly a year already. Yikes! It has been (and still is) a year of exciting changes (not to worry, G and I are still happily together). I'm still in school but was also working a lot and fell a bit out of the habit of drawing in general, but I hope I can start uploading a bit more regularly now. Also, my hair is super long now so I usually wear it in a bun or a ponytail. I am planning to chop it all off again soon though!

Anyway, I made a new-ish comic about my new-ish friend Rie (left), who is a wicked photographer. You can see her work here.

Feeling a bit rusty. Better brush up on those punch lines!

I'm not dead, I'm not dead!

Waah, how did time go by so quickly? The combination of starting a new job in the beginning of June (yay!), the semester project deadline stress toward mid July (nay!), endless stream of guests and G's birthday resulted in the longest hiatus in the history of Bring Me Bonsai -- nearly 3 months! I'm sorry for keeping you in the dark about my whereabouts and for the lack of updates...I should have at least posted that I'll be taking some time off! But yes, I'm doing well, G's doing well; if there's one thing we can brag about, it's our immune systems of steel.

At the moment, I'm not entirely sure where I want to go with this blog. I don't know if I will keep drawing the same kind of comics in the same style or try something entirely new, but I guess I'll keep my options open for now.
Anyway, as part of our semester project at uni I did an illustrated reportage about Japanese people working in Berlin. Here's a little peek at one of the illustrations for the booklet!

See you soon!

Piece of Cake

To make up for my laziness on the comic front I've been trying to draw more, period. Here's a punny doodle from this morning.

Hoshi Coupe

As a part of my illustrated reportage project, I spent my Saturday afternoon sketching at Hoshi Coupe Berlin, a Japanese hair salon run by Mr Ohno. The salon was brimming with action, with the stylists hustling and customers constantly coming and going. Thanks for a fascinating drawing and interview session!
