Tokyo Musume



In just a few days my first solo exhibition will open in Tokyo. July 16th to my birthday July 21st.


I'm very excited and more than a bit nervous.
The theme is Tokyo Musume (Tokyo Girls) . I'll also display several works from the 100 robots series which I have up on comicspace.


I'm also a complete wreck trying to complete a design job for a big publishing company (logo for an online comic) and the opening to a tv show for another big company all while trying to finish more artwork for the show.


The pic you see here is the postcard/flyer for the show. Also is a larger view of the map. If you are in Japan, you can find Gallery House Maya very easily. At Gaienmae station, take Exit 3 and go straight to the cross signal. Cross and turn right. You should pass a Family Mart on the left. Take the first left. After about 3 minutes you should see Maya on your right. It's a small house/gallery flanked by two large bushes.


The gallery requests that no one sends flowers, but generous amounts of cash and/or alcohol will accepted with open arms. The opening party will be Monday the 16th from 5pm. I hope to see you there!


Cheerz!

I'll definitely have to make it to the show! Probably can't make the kick-off, but I'm looking forward to seeing the work.

Karate Kid, IF "Similar" and SCBWI Tokyo Art Show

The Karate Kid changed my life.
The movie, of course. Not the Legion of Superheroes comic character.
I'm watching it right now as I type this blog and I was thinking about how many of my perceptions about karate were shaped by Mr. Miyagi. I was never big on "sports" movies, I never saw Rocky.
But I knew what it was like to be the little guy. The new kid on the block. And I knew what it was like going up against an institutionalized system of separating the "winners" from the "losers".
Luckily, I had friends in and out of school that liked me for who I was and not for who I desperately thought I wanted to be. It took me a little while and Karate Kid 2 to realize what I did want. The summer that KK2 was the summer where I decided to take control of my life and stopped worrying about what the @$$holes thought. It wasn't even a gradual thing. Once I had made that decision, suddenly things started changing around me. I had confidence and that made it easie…

I'm lovin' movie Harley Quinn

Of course, I'll always be a huge fan of Harley Quinn's original design by Bruce Timm. But the Suicide Squad design is based on Harley's recent look which is pretty awesome in itself.  Check out these screencaps from the new Suicide Squad trailer. It looks like she's a HUGE part of the flick. Carla Whatsherface's Enchantress (did not like her in Paper Towns so not expecting much from her), Will Smith's Deadshot (always watchable), Jared Leto's Joker (could be insane), Killer Croc, fire dude, whatever... Margot Robbie's Harley steals the show!

Now THIS is a superhero team

What if the Avengers were a Super Sentai team?
Presenting The Averangers!



They're pretty okay...
