Hello! Yes, still here. Still alive. It’s been a turbulent year and I sort of ignored this place while I was figuring crap out. Hope all of you have been well. No earth-shattering news to report but just wanted to drop in and post a few things.
Firstly, the Kaigai Manga Festival that was held along with Comitia was last month and a big “thank you” to those who came by for signatures and sketches. It was great to be sitting at a table and meeting fans again. Haven’t done that in a while. I made a zine for the con along with fellow creator Ken Niimura of I Kill Giants fame called “2″.
It includes a 6 page short from both of us in Japanese. (sorry, no English version) We have a bunch of extra copies left so if have $5USD/CAD lying around and would like a copy please drop me a line at: <firstname.lastname@example.org> It was hand-folded and stapled by us. So, y’know. It is love infused.
If you happen to be living in Tokyo you can also grab a copy at either Taco Che located in Nakano Broadway or Blister Comics located in East Tokyo near Hamacho Park. 400 yen at either of those locations, btw.
Secondly/finally, I hope you all have a safe and wonderful holiday. All the best to you in 2013. I hope to have some exciting news for you in the new year!
