Kumamoto Earthquake Disaster - Charity Ts and Picture book

I've been posting on FB (https://www.facebook.com/patrick.ijimawashburn) about the earthquakes in Kumamoto. I designed a charity T-shirt to support my recently adopted home. I'm also going to turn these characters into a picture book to help kids find the strength to get through disasters.
Wish me luck.

The T-shirt design. GAMADAS means "Do your best!"

FLESH + BLOOD mini-review (Rutger Hauer, Verhoeven)

I'm trying out a new format for talking about movies. It's a work in progress. I actually want to do more illustration and the sketch of Jennifer Jason Leigh doesn't do her any justice. Once I turned on this movie, I wanted to look into Susan Tyrrell as she always plays highly-interesting broken characters. I plan to rewatch her in Angel (1984) sometime soon.

Verhoeven is a very interesting director as in he's not afraid to do things differently. He apparently experimented while making this film and

Phenomena - Dario Argento, Jennifer Connelly, and Donald Pleasance

And don’t forget the chimp, the gimp, and the swarms of six-legged creatures. Jennifer Connelly stars as Jennifer, an American at a creepy European boarding school (see Suspiria). She’s pretty and rich, but lonely. Her parents have abandoned her and she’s WAY too friendly with bugs.  What’s a girl to do? Why become friends with a slightly creepy entomologist dude, that’s what. I’m sure she only had an eye for his bags and for his cute assistant, a chimpanzee. Something that is now a thing, I’m sure. Like many Argento flicks, there are decapitations and attempted decapitations. Also lots of blood and broken glass. And mirrors. And useless cops. An excellent follow-up to Suspiria which I’d like to talk about in the future.
