I am writing this journal in English even if it's about a French event, because the event is in Paris, but the art, books and the goodies produced for it are mostly available worldwide, so anyone could be interested.
I am NOT going to Japex this year, but I will be there with my artworks as member of the team RAXXON
(cliquez sur l'image pour plus d'informations sur le stand!)
For its 10tyh year of life, the group created an artbook resuming the adventures of the main characters of this fantasy world; the artbook is pretty much illustrations so anyone can enjoy it, even not speaking french. ^^
In the same stand you could find a lot of other fanzines and goodies, and also the final chapter of Nephyla
's graphic novel "The Black Pawn".
There are so many friends I would like to recommend visiting the stands of, and checking the pages of just after the fair (to buy their marvelous stuff!) but I risk forgetting somebody if I make a list, so I am advertising only a team who is very dear to me. They are the girls with whom I have spent the past two Japex and I can assure they are simply the best!
Keep an eye on the updates in the pages of the awesome Darjeeling team
who is currently running a facebook giveaway before the expo:
I guess that's all for me now, hope that all of you guys will have fun!
