2006/10/30 & 11/07 Introducing Mi
I draw a lot of comics about Mi but none are good enough to show you. But here was one I had drawn in my journal anyway:

2006/10/11 Renato Zero
Rather than being a 'fanart' of the singer, this sketch is more inspired by Renato Zero's stage custom and performance in the 1970s. If you can't tell, it is a man in the sketch. He seems entrance by his own reflection in the mirror.
You can see many of Renato Zero's clips on Youtube. Here are some from the 1970s that I liked:
Renato Zero - Depresso:
A riveting song! Even in black and white he is fabulous! I think he started his more 'glam' stage in 1977, and this seems before he seriously got all glammed out.
Renato Zero - Mi Vendo and Sospetto:
He was so thin! If I sat in the audience in the first row I would had been worried that he might step on me. At the end of the clip is a short snippet of Sospetto in which our dear friend Renato attempts to become a porcupine.
Renato Zero - Il Triangolo:
His costume... This song is awesome! Very epic! I'm not quite sure what he is doing wearing those triangles.... But, don't worry kids, it was only the late 1970s so everyone else was doing it too, and Renato doesn't dress like this anymore. This here is an example of "ultimate fabulous."
I suggest checking out Amanda Lear's New York and Wish Key's Orient Express as well if you enjoyed this (or even if you didn't; Wish Key is excellent).

Happy New Journal!
This journal is partly to allow me a place to post the sketches I do in my paper journal. I don't own a sketchbook (I don't like them very much), but I often draw silly pictures in my journals. I don't produce beautiful or decent drawings everyday, but I have a good backlog of journals from the last two years so I'll put those pictures up as well when I have the time. Many of these are kind of boring because I tend to draw a lot of the upper body and focus on the expression of the face. I'm really not much of an artist, but I hope that this journal may lead me to try and make more comics and artwork in the near future.
The two people on the right are twins Sylvie and Gilles. The girl on the left is Emily. These people are my special characters, and they will appear on this journal again and again. I want to draw a comic using these characters, but I always feel so apphrehensive about my own work so I don't... Maybe someday or not.

I am still trying to get the hang of the Blogger system. I am hoping that I will be able to customize the layout someday...
