La Carmina (blog) got a makeover! Behold, my new custom WordPress theme — inspired by Art Nouveau Absinthe — by Naomiyaki Studios.

Isn’t my First Mate a marvelous illustrator? She designed the theme and graphics, and made the above Go with Oh drawing of Yukiro and me.

Naomi is known for her colorful, poppy, spooky, Japan-inspired artwork, which you can see on her blog.

I’m addicted to her comic, Domestic Animal, which is regularly updated with new panels. The strip follows Naomi as she goes nomad, living in different places and having adventures.

Possibly her most epic work is our La Carmina & The Pirates logo.

As you may know, we work together to “fix” (arrange and locally produce) TV shows, mainly about travel/subcultures. We recently arranged the Tokyo episode of a popular German program: Pro Sieben’s “Joko gegen Klaas.”

Filmed at Tokyo Decadance Bar, the presenter got a bagelhead, or saline forehead donut. Naomi and Mistress Maya were his tormentors.

Watch the clip above and on LaCarmina YouTube. Don’t make fun of my German accent, ok?

Next Sunday, you can see yet another bagel-head TV show we worked on: National Geographic “Taboo”.

    It’s so lovely, and elegant, and colourful :) I hate those overly minimalist fashion blogs in stark black & white. And i LOVE that uber picture of Yukiro..love the hair colours and it’s just like Luna Park or something :)

      Thank you, means a lot to me! And yeah, not a fan of the cookie cutter fashion blog design.
