SO! You ask... What the heck is kurukuru kamishibai?

It's an adaptation of traditional Japanese storytelling.

Where traditionally you have a box and a number of picture cards you use as you tell the story,

kurukuru (spinspin) kami (paper) shibai (performance) uses a long roll of paper and a box with handles that you turn to advance the paper. I've made 4 stories so far and I plan to show off a new one at the show starting on Wednesday.

The ones I'm making are mini-sized for the smaller boxes.

To get to the gallery, just get out Takeshita exit in Harajuku, cross the street , turn left and go up the hill. The gallery is on the right.

Face Your Demons Poster

I've retouched an old piece for Illustration Friday not realizing Reflect was last week's theme. Oh well.
On reflecting:
I spent way too much time reflecting and not enough time doing when I was much younger, but I have to admit that the experience hasn't been a total loss.
Experience is still experience even if it's in your head and I'm a lot more prepared to be an active artist, husband, and dad than I ever was before.
If you're going to spend a lot of time being haunted by your demons, might as well get chummy with them. Running away from them doesn't do you or those around you any favors.
And who knows... they might be AWESOME!

Drawn for Illustration Friday. Finally filled another page in my larger moleskine sketchbook.
Was so busy doing this piece, I almost forgot to upload Tomoko's artwork to the Hexenringe webcomic.

DSC Danny Trejo, Coolest Badass Ever

Watching Dead in Tombstone starring Danny Trejo, I was inspired to focus on this drawing more than the movie. Still, I'm glad Señor Trejo gets to be the star these days.
