First of all, I wanted to thank you for reading my monthly Muffin Mag comics! Aand, unfortunately, I have to announce that the publishing comes to an end… Some of you may know that I started working freelance last year, and I didn’t have much time to draw those short stories on a regular basis. I still have a few pages left and am thinking about posting one one the first Monday of the next months.
Anyways, I assume many of you are interested in manga here (silly question?;) so whenever I have time, I’ll try diversifying my posts with more artwork, maybe tutorials or reviews. What would you like to see?:D
For a start, I’m pleased to announce that I’ll be animating manga workshops in Luxembourg over the next time – for those who’d like to learn how to draw manga and/or improve their skills!
From July 16th-27th, you can be part of a 30h creative summer camp in Luxembourg-City where you’ll learn the basics of drawing manga, character-design and more, leading to the final creation of your own story and an exhibition of your artwork, among with many other talented artists, sculptors and crafters. The afternoon sessions are already completely booked out and we reopened a morning session – there are only two weeks left for your inscription, so please be quick if you’d like to participate, seeing as there are limited places !

I’d love to welcome and guide you in those workshops! If you have any questions, if you’d rather prefer online or private lessons, or if you are a business and wish to offer a workshop at your place, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org !
Konnichi wa minna!
The last but beautiful stop during my Japan trip is Kyoto! It was the most beautiful city I have visited so far, very traditional, with so much nature and many temples and shrines that give you so much peace in your heart.
First of all, I’d like to show you pictures of Kyoto’s beautiful temples and shrines. Of course there are many others but unfortunately we didn’t have enough time to visit them all …
So this was my last entry in my Nippon blog and I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did ^^ if you ever get the chance to travel to Japan, I highly recommend it to you!
Ja nee minna! <3<3
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is in force as of 25th May 2018 and replaces the existing data protection framework. The main goal of GDPR is to provide a set of standardised laws across all the European union member countries and to give the EU citizens control over their personal data. Or to put it differently: users are supposed to get a clearer idea of how their data is being processed.
The GDPR must be followed by institutions, companies and individuals dealing with personal data. A processor of personal data must clearly disclose any data collection, declare the lawful basis and purpose for data processing, how long data is being retained and if it is being shared with any third-parties or outside of the EU.
The announcement was met with lots of discussions. Criticism has been raised in regards to freedom of speech and information, unclear compliance requirements and grey areas left with the regulation.
Geeks’ Life and the GDPR
Seeing that the regulation still leaves question marks when it comes to its application (especially for media platforms that cover cultural events), GLL has taken the following stance so far (which may be updated when further details are released):
- Starting on 25 May 2018 the GLL crew only covers events the team gets invited to or gets press accredication for.
- The GLL crew continues making photoshoots with the autorisation of the model and any people featured on the pictures.
Game critic John Bain, more commonly known by the aliases TotalBiscuit and the Cynical Brit, passed away on 25 May 2018 after a long battle with cancer. Bain was 33.
Bain revealed in 2014 that he had been diagnosed with bowel cancer and was receiving chemotherapy and radiation treatment. The cancer went into remission but later returned, spreading to his liver and his spine.
In 2015, he announced that his cancer was terminal, though he continued to work on his popular YouTube channel and The Co-Optional Podcast. Bain had announced earlier this month that he was retiring from games criticism as a result of his failing health.
Bain’s career as a game critic and personality spanned more than a decade. His YouTube channel, which was home to TotalBiscuit’s podcast and game impressions, had more than 2,2 million subscribers. Bain was also a top Steam curator, garnering more than 800,000 followers.
Our sincere condolences go out to John Bain’s family and friends.
Konnichi wa minna! (Hello guys)
I had the chance to travel through the beautiful country of Japan during the last two weeks and I wanted to give you some impressions I got about this beautiful landscape and culture. At First, I will give you a brief impression of the country and its culture, before I give you a deeper sight to different Cities and places I got to explore ^^.
Well, that’s it for now. I hope you got a small impression of Japanese food and Culture. I will show you more of my Japanese Adventure next time.
Ja nee! 🙂
Way back on February 8th, The Hollywood Reporter first revealed that Warner and DC were in very early talks with Michael Bay about him directing a Lobo movie. There is a script, at least an early version of one, and in effort to make him sign on, they handed it off to Bay so he could give his input on its further development – so the powers that be at DC and Warner must really want him to helm this.
In this editorial, @AndreEinherjar will cover who Lobo is and why they might want to make a movie about him, the prospect of Michael Bay being the one directing it, the budget, and above all, what even wanting Michael Bay for something like Lobo implies about the powers that be at DC, and how they are running DC on film into the ground.
