2008/09/06 - Oh Too Bad


I wonder what Oscar said to Jirou that made him angry. LOL

I'm feeling so anxious. These two are the only thing helping me get through the day. I wonder if I should create a LJ again for sketches or whatnot. *_*; Should I?

Yesterday, I got in the mail this manga called 、Sakamichi no apollon by Kodama Yuki. I really like the artstyle. And I like the presentation. The story takes place in 1966, and the simple and solid linework reflect simpler times. Times when, as they say, the world was soft. It is a school story with some music-related elements like one of the main characters plays the piano and discovers jazz through another character. I wasn't expecting much. I only ordered the manga because of the character with glasses in gakuran that graced the front cover. This is my weakness I suppose. Second volume will come out in October. I think I want to get it when it comes out because I like the interaction between the main characters. One of them is banchou-like and he has a cool school hat just like I do. <3 I want to get some artbooks from the Pan-Exotica series too. Hopefully my order can go through. I have to buy so many books this month that my budget is getting rather out of control. *_*;

I feel disconnected from the people around me and melancholic and often tired. :-(

2008/08/17 - Oscar's Eyes



Hey guyz. I realized today while I was sketching after doing some intense reading that I have perfected Oscar's perverted smile and his knowing sideways glance. Not like the above but a bit better maybe. Anyway, the artwork for the next book is going to be so much better. First book is so embarrassing. But then again it always is.

2008/08/17 - Jirou baby



I bought paper used for markers and it is working out great for me. <3 But my brush pen is out of ink. Life is sad. ;_; When I was designing this character Jirou he was supposed to be even more insane. He is, kind of, maybe, but not as much as during the preliminary planning.

2008/04/13 - Alex and Flowers


We haven't seen Alex in a long while. I guess you can say Alex has an affinity with flowers and animals and other things in nature. He looks really happy here. I haven't drawn Alex very much recently.

Also I updated the website today! This update took me a really long time since I had to revamp a few things and learn some new things about CSS coding and such. I spent 5 hours trying to get the web form to work until I finally remembered that my webhost had a form to help me out with that. -_- What a waste of time! I seriously don't know how to go about working with CGI and PERL. I can't handle computer languages anymore. And to think I used to have a knack with these things. *sigh*

Anyway, I put up an order page (which gave me a whole lot of grief) so that people can easily order stuff if they wanted to. *A* Please buy something-- Uuuu.
