Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica by Arina Tanemura (the woman who wrote Kamikaze Kaitou Jeanne)
Ahhhhh! I love this! I love both Arina’s work and Madoka Magica.
ahhhhHHHH I REALLY LOVE ARINA TANEMURA this is really cool
TWO OF MY FAVOURITE SHOUJO THINGS COMBINED OH MY GOD AHHHHHHHHHhhhhhhrghgsfdhgh
the only thing i really can’t stand about her work is that it’s so… shiny? like take the piece with madoka and homura. that background just isn’t necessary for the flow of the piece, and the characters would stand out way better if the background wasn’t so distracting
i dunno i can see why she would continue to do things this way since this formula has worked out for her, but i would love to see her tone down the desu a bit.
When Sandy Patangay left her home country of India to come to the United States, she never dreamed that she’d one day be able to bring something so special from her native culture to eager New York City consumers. After having completed her masters and begun working on Wall Street, she turned her sights away from the corporate world and began to channel her true passion - henna design - into a project that has become incredibly successful in an incredibly small amount of time. Transmuting traditional henna designs onto a whole new medium, Sandy creates beautiful cakes, cookies, and macaroons that have earned critical praise from some of the most renowned culinary experts. Thinking back on her decision to take this step in establishing her own business, she says:
So many times, I asked myself, whether this was a stupid move — walking away from a secure job to sell cakes. But now I can see I didn’t waste a single day. While I loved what I was doing on Wall Street, there’s only so much you can do to climb the corporate ladder. And how many people actually end up being the CEO? But when you follow your passion, the possibilities are endless.
