OK, so a comics blogger informed me at a convention a few months back that they didn’t know why I got invited to so many conventions and did so many appearances, because there are more women in comics out there than me, and I was hogging all the attention. They don’t think it’s fair for me to be…

Kids, wishing to move to another country, say, Japan or Korea to be an animator, or a Mangaka? Listen to Kodansha Mangaka, Felipe Smith (PeePo Choo, MBQ, Ghost Rider), one of the first Americans to move, live, write, draw and publish his own manga for the largest manga publisher in the world, Kodansha (2008-2011).  Real knowledge and insight. 

Also, be prepared to work.

"My name is Michael Hunter. I was diagnosed with leukemia in June 2013 & was told on June 11, 2014 that I only have a few months left to live if I can’t find a donor. Please help me with my biological family or a donor match! I was born in Columbus, OH 3/1/1985 at Doctor’s North Hospital and given the name Christopher Brown. Please share"
Michael is a friend, I’m asking that you all take the time to share this. He desperately needs a bone marrow donor and there is very limited number of African American donors. Without a donor Michael is going to die.
Michael was adopted and does not know his birth family. We know he has a half brother but have no information about him.
He does not specifically need an African American Donor but because of all of the things that factor into finding a match (blood type, dna tissue etc.) , someone of similar descent is more likely to be a closer match.
If anyone knows anything about Michael’s birth family or if you would like to see if you are a match, please privately message me. I can put you in touch with him and his caregivers directly!
We hope through spreading awareness we can either find his birth family whom he does not know or find a donor match. Michael lives in the Cincinnati, OH area. Please dont just like this or scroll past. Please share this! You could save his life!

BOOST. Its so hard for Black people to find donors.

More mini watercolors for Mechacon!  The colors are a little skewed towards desaturation and dark, they’re more vibrant in real life.  There’s two Bee and Puppycats (one in 8x8, the other is 4x6 and just Bee), Mario and Luigi, and a really shoujo Fiona.

If you’re in eastern Washington, come find me at KuroNekoCon this weekend!

Xib will also be there at the table next to me!

I will have the usual assortment of Ponies, Pokemon, and Loki, and also an embarrassing number of T2 prints and my T2 zine. u_u I’m also down to the very last copy of my Free! for Winter Break artbook, so if someone would like to take it off my hands… :3

Come talk to me about sports anime and stuff! 8D

Awwww yeah. First batch of sass buttons done. I forgot how many different designs I made (13!), and I have to order more buttons.

These plastic flower carbonchons are kinda awful, I hope I can source cuter flowers in the future.

Debuting these at Mechacon next weekend.

Whoops I did a fanart.  It just seemed so natural.  Sailor Bee and her perpetually annoyed guardian Puppycat
