There isn’t much to go over administratively this month. We will be switching back to UPS for shipping covers to the US. JCEX hands the delivery over to another courier, which means that the tracking numbers were frequently not being updated after the transition. As such, shipping costs have increased slightly to $22 for 1 cover and $29 for 2 or 3 covers. Additionally, due to their incredibly long width, we will need to begin shipping our tapestries separately from cover orders.
As for the fun stuff, this month we will add the following 9 designs to the store.
- Belfast (Azur Lane) by KyuriTizu
- LLENN (Gun Gale Online) by shuffle
- Koneko (High School DxD) by Nyatrix
- Sneezeweed (Flower Knight Girl) by Amo
- Kaga (Azur Lane) by Ikazu
- Yamashiro (Azur Lane) by Tony Guisado
- Hifumi (New Game!) by Kula Shaker
- San Diego (Azur Lane) by Kimoshi
- Scathach (Fate Series) by Cleanline
Disclaimer: The lines and octopodes on the sample images are a watermark and won’t be on the printed cover.
The premium P80 2-Way Roika versions of most covers will be available on Sakura-Palace.
As usual, we also have a lot of projects in the pipeline. Right now, we can announce the following work is currently in progress:
- KyuriTizu will start on Tio Pretzel (Trails in the Sky)
- shuffle has started on Sinon (Gun Gale Online)
- Brora is drawing Arisa (Shadowverse) – Sketchie
- Nyatrix will start on LLENN (Gun Gale Online)
- Tony Guisado will draw Homura (Xenoblade)
- Amo is drawing Shouhou (Azur Lane)
- Ikazu will do Akagi (Azur Lane)
We also should have a new tapestry with some cute cats next month.
