Minus Sun introduction booklet

I’ve made this booklet when I was in Japan last month. It explains my concept, what I do, and who I am in Japanese. My brother will be making copies of it so he can have it in his shop with my works and hand out to customers. It will probably help people who are put off by my English-only website. Most of the writing is my handwriting. It is printed onto rough writing paper in A3 size and folded into a A6 size booklet. The last two images are the original data and I think you can recognise the charm of the rough writing paper which I’ve used to print on. You will find an image of my work and the illustration of the same look printed on the back side when you open it. It may be a good idea to make one in English as well. Also, my online store for Japan is ready so have a look if you’re in Japan. http://japan.minussun.co.uk

the Sensuous Girl’s black lingerie set

Hello, I am still alive. I’ve been back to my family home for a while to help out my brother’s second hand bookshop and of course enjoy Japan! I’m back to the UK now (yes, I’ve got my new visa) so I should be working on new projects but there are some leftover tasks for my brother and I’ve been planning to update my website for quite a while as well… I will get there eventually.

I haven’t blogged about these so here it goes. This is the Sensuous Girl’s look for “minus the sun, night all day” collection. It is a set of a bra, a pair of knickers, and a garter all in black. She seduces men and wears sensuous yet innocent-looking lingerie. I’ve made them in black, imagining her going out in the dark to meet her lover(s). The main fabric is cotton sateen and the hand crocheted frills are made of silk yarn. The bra uses cotton grosgrain ribbons for the shoulder straps, silver adjusters, and covered buttons as back fastening.

I think I have created and uploaded images of the full collection of “minus the sun, night all day” by this. I’m thinking to make the story book of this collection (it’s a Word document at this moment…) in some form as well but haven’t decided yet. Anyway, the clothes are all done. Hope you liked it.
