I haven’t forgotten about making Fisheye Placebo yet! Working on prototyping the Axent Wear headphones just took up a lot of time along with AX and other upcoming conventions. 

It was so great to see all the amazing Fisheye Placebo copslayers at AX. I’ll try to release the next chapter soon q_q

In other news, I’ll be at the J-Pop Summit festival in San Francisco’s Japan Town this July 19-20th. You can find me in the Kinokuniya Bookstore mall on the 2nd floor near the elevators :D See you there!

We’re proud to present our first photoshoot picture! Our model is sporting the very first prototype of Axent headphones. 

We received a lot of great feedback and constructive suggestions in our last post. We will take them all into consideration and make some changes in the next prototype. Over-the-ear instead of on-top-of-the-ear will be implemented in the next version, as well as new materials.

We’re very grateful for all the support and we hope everyone will continue to help us improve our headphones step by step.

axentwear:

Thank you all for the amazing support! 

We’ve been over whelmed with comments and questions for the past week, so we would like to answer some frequently asked questions here!

Q: When and where can I order a pair?

A: We are currently working making a Kickstarter crowd funding campaign. Once the Kickstarter is up, hopefully in a month or two, you can pre-order through the Kickstarter. We will e-mail everyone and post the link to the Kickstarter when that happens. If you haven’t signed up for e-mail updates yet, you can do so at http://www.axentwear.com/

Q: How much will the headphones cost?

A: We’re aiming to keep the price as low as possible without compromising quality. The price we’ve decided on is $115.

Q: Will you ship internationally?

A: Yep! Though shipping prices will be different than domestic orders. We are not in control of how much shipping companies charge.

Q: Do the cat ear speakers actually work?

A: Yes, the speakers are fully functional so you can switch between listening to your music silently or sharing your music with your friends!

Q: Will they come in multiple colors?

A: Yes! And when you pre-order through our Kickstarter, you can vote on which top colors will be produced.

Q: Will they be wireless? Will they come with a mic? LED lights? And if so, will the LED lights change colors?

A: That will depend on how much money we can raise through Kickstarter. The more pre-orders we get, the more funds we have to add even more cool features to the headphones without increasing the cost to you! So when the Kickstarter goes live, please support us by pre-ordering a pair! The more fund we raise, the more features your headphones will have :)

Q: My question wasn’t answered here?

A: Please be patient. We’re still working out the final details of certain features. We want to be absolutely certain before we answer a question. If your question hasn’t been answered yet, it will be in the near future so stay tuned! :D

Thank you all again for the amazing level of support! We look forward to bringing you a new music experience!

Tribute to my favorite Miyazaki movie of all time. Princess Mononoke portrays the beauty and challenges of coexisting with mother nature so perfectly. It teaches a lesson that we can all learn from. If you haven’t seen this classic already, I highly recommend it :)

Work in progress~ 

Taking a break from drawing all the urban scenery of Fisheye Placebo. Princess Mononoke is still my favorite Miyazaki film of all time 

The Fanime Artist Alley map is out! As expected, they put me in the very deepest and darkest corner of the room at table 1213. My dear friends Guavi and FieldofBeans will be in the dark corner with me. Please come visit or we will be very lonely ):

See you guys this weekend! :D

Hey guys :D It’s that time of the year again! Fanime is one of the biggest anime cons on the west coast and I’m happy to be able to see many of my friends again and to make new ones as well. :D

The con is from May 23 - 26th, 2014, and it’s held at the San Jose McEnery Convention center in California.  As usual, I’ll be in the Artist Alley with my prints :D My table number is 1213. They haven’t released a map yet, but judging from the number, I’ll probably be in some back corner of the conventional hall lol. Come by and hang out, and we can all get dinner together too :)

Hey guys! As you might remember, many years ago I designed some cat eared headphones. The designs received a lot of public support but I lacked the time and resources back then to turn them into a reality. However, I’m happy to announce that we are very close to making these headphones come to life.

My friends and I have been working very hard over the past year in preparation. We’ve found the factory, went through countless negotiations, worked on refining the design, and now we’re just need the funding. 

We’ll be releasing more drawings and details as we get closer to opening our Kickstarter crowd funding campaign, so keep your eyes open! :D
