It's been a while since I wrote something. A lot happened, actually.
The most awesome news is of course that we won the Dutch Manga Awards 2015 with "The Mirror Master" by Marcitach, from our second Theme Book; "Feeding the Soul". We also won the DMA in 2013, with our first booklet, so we feel a bit extra honoured since both our booklets now have a price :happybounce:
The award ceremony was during Animecon 2015. This time around, we actually had a stad there (the first time we got the price we weren't even in the dealerroom, so people searched for us in vain Waaaah! ). The convention itself took three days, and we had a lot of fun with the people who came by our stand. I litterally had to draw commissions up until the last second the dealerroom was open on Sunday, so my hand felt pretty lifeless after that xD

We recently (last weekend) went to an outdoor comic event in the Netherlands called "Kamper Stripspektakel". It's quite similiar to a market, where the stands are out in the streets throughout parts of the city center.
It was a lot of fun here too, but the weather could have been.. better... Things alternated between very sharp sunlight and sudden wind and rain. Not really the best circumstances to draw in...
The most suprising to me was the vast amount of young children. most of them went around with little booklets to collect drawing from the artists there. I drew quite a few myself.

We also had a small reprint of the second theme book in the mean time, so both theme books are availble again if anyone's interested Meow :3

I have also been commissioned a few times outside of events Love
If you want to see the drawings, I made a new folder called Commissions (duh...) where I have posted a few and will post more when the others are ready. If you want to commission me, send me a message ^^

So, that was it for now :)

Warm Winter Tea by ARHDian
Warm Winter Tea
A commission for someone's birthday. For somebody who loves tea and warmth (just like me :D).
It looks decent, but I guess I still have a lot to learn about colouring (like patience for example... that would help...)

Let's eat sushi! by ARHDian
Let's eat sushi!
A commission for a sushi invitation as someone's mothersday gift ^^
It was very last minute, hence the even more crappy than usual colouring xD
I still suck at colouring... T^T

The Faint of Mind and the Faint of Heart by ARHDian
The Faint of Mind and the Faint of Heart
This is the CrackBrained Bookmark design I made xD
It is going to be printed and delivered to us soon, and it will be availble for the first time at the Stripmanifestatie Drachten May 30-31st.
I personnaly quite like how it turned out. what do you guys think?

Hello everyone :)
For de Dutch folk amongst us, CrackBrained Doujinshi will attend de Stripmanifestatie Drachten, May 30-31!
It's basically an event for (mainly) Dutch comics. It's different from manga/anime conventions, mostly comic collectors and a lot of people over 40 attend, but lately they are trying to attract more young folk and also manga artists, like us ^^
We have been to similar event once before in Gorinchem, and we had a lot of fun there.
If you happen to go there, or if you are in the neighbourhood, please come visit our stand! For now, I, Marcitach and EprilDiva are certain to be present at the stand, doing our best to sell our booklets and merchandise, and hopefully we will also be busy with commissions :D

CrackBrained fans and enthousiasts out there will be happy to hear that the reprint of Theme Book 1, Self-Destruction, is going to be availble at this event. It will be an improved version of the first edition, and we are currently busy redrawing panels and toning pages anew xD  this edition will be an overhauled edition.
A buckload of work, but also a lot of fun ;) My story in the booklet, Mirror Image, is well on its way to experience a heavy make-over. The file I had was corrupted, so the whole second half of my story was suddenly void of tones T_T but if fixed it by now. It already looks better than before, and it is going to be even more awesome xD
So, even if you happen to have a copy of the first edition, you might still want to buy this one ;)

Theme Book 2, Feeding the Soul, has almost run out: only 28 copies left at this point. Get your copy at Drachten or order it on our website.

More good news: we now have merchandise!
We had two different A3 posters printed, 4 different A3 posters, 4 A5 prints, and we have an awesome bookmark now xD
Some of these you can already see on our Facebook account, which is updated frequently by Marcitach.
We are awaiting their arrival, but they should come in soon, so they will all be availble in Drachten. Come take a look!


Anyhow, we are very exited about these new developments, and hope to see you in Drachten or at other conventions this year. Everyone is alwys welcome, even if it's just for a little chat :)
Hope to see you soon!

bedankt!
ben je benieuwd genoeg om er eentje te bestellen? XD
Volgend Tsunacon komt als het goed is deel 2 uit, kom vooral kijken als je er toevallig bent :)

Ik had al even op jullie site gekeken maar ik kon niet zo snel vinden hoe ik kon bestellen.
Ik ben niet op Tsunacon denk, maar ga wel naar Anime 2014 in Den Haag. Staan jullie daar ook?

Dat weet ik niet zeker, maar ik denk het eigenlijk niet. het zou kunnen dat iemand van ons er toevallig naartoe gaat, dan kan er altijd iets afgesproken worden natuurlijk.
we zijn wel komend abunai aanwezig om een workshop te geven, dus daar zou iets mee kunnen.
een andere optie is dat we het naar je opsturen, maar dan komen er wel verzendkosten bij ;P

yo Everard hier,

vandaag jullie manga gelezen.
Vermakelijke/intrigerende verhalen, iets waar ik nog niet eerder over heb gelezen/gezien (qua manga/anime) en het boekje zelf zit gewoon erg mooi in elkaar.
hoop dat crackbrained een goede toekomst zal hebben en ik wens jullie daar ook succes mee ;)

groet,

EV
