The project exists in its essential form since 2008. At that time it was a static homepage mostly about animation, DIY and otaku stuff, which I had to put on ice after 3 years of activity, due to a lack of time throughout school graduation and work. During my university time however, I was able to relaunch the newly designed blog in 2015, but later wasn’t happy with its approach and name anymore, so in 2018 we finally arrived were we are now.
For photography and filming I use a Canon EOS 600D with three different lenses (18-55mm, 55-250mm and 10-20mm). The graphics for the blog, like banners, logos, concepts, etc, I design with Photoshop and Illustrator.
