Yes, I took a quick trip to L.A. or as they say in Japan "Los", and I was able to visit the Los Angeles ComicBook and Science Fiction Convention where I was able to meet Rutger Hauer and have him sign his new book for me! Yes, the picture is crap, but I was happy as hell to meet this intense actor who has been in a whole mess of my favorite movies! Also learned about his AIDS awareness activities including his Starfish Association, and I was happy to donate $10 and get a signed pic for a friend back here who is sick.
Also came across this interesting mail box.
So, what else have I been up to? An animation that my team put together for the hip hop mag The Source (Japan) was screened last night at the club Shibuya Harlem (yeah, don't ask). It's always nice when you can see your work up on a big screen with more than just your friends and family watching. We'll be screening this short along with some others at the end of this month at the Design Festa, a big art convention held twice a year just outside Tokyo.
I'm really thinking about trying out as a VJ. For the fun of a new experience, you know?
This is a shot from the first scene. This is the first time I've ever drawn "dancehouse" hotpants. It may not be the last.
This is Bunny Boss, who made his animation debut in this clip. Hornery as usual, he manages to pick a fight with a phone and lose.
This is my favorite shot from the whole clip. Mobile-phoneman kicks some bunny butt.
I won't be able to upload the whole clip at this time, but maybe in the future. Until then I'll try to keep updating this blog with more cool stuff! Cheerz!
