All color but the black~  
Today Kubo-sensei's Bleach artbook came out! I was very excited, and I highly recommend it for any fans of the series! I really like it! =^o^= I used to not like Kubo-sensei's artwork very much, but after years of working on this series, I think that he's really improved and become something amazing! I love his creativity and his use of colors and themes is really great. ^^ (Still can't compare to Tanemura Arina, whom is arguably the best artist in manga, imo, but he's a shonen mangaka so you can't expect a whole lot to start with...)

For those that like Bleach: Who is your favorite character, and why? Least favorite, too? I like...Collapse )

So, manga has been my saviour, as it often is. I love manga, I love art of all forms (if you haven't noticed)!! Since I was in diapers, creativity has been my life, my lifeline. It's in my blood (mine, at least). =^__^= More than anything, I love art. ♥ More recent indulgences...Collapse )

PS: It's SO COLD in Tokyo! I am going to freeze to death and why does my heater only go up to 30 degrees (C)? It's all the way up but it's still freezing in here! If you don't hear from me, it's because I actually froze to death overnight....

It's been a while since I've read up on bleach (I'll have to do that soon)— the narrative has kind of degraded into a typical shonen bad-guys-come-but-are-too-strong-then-protagonists-find-new-powers-in-desperation-then-win-fight-but-OHSNAP-stronger-bad-guys-come-rinse-lather-repeat pattern, but Kubo does some amazing artwork for the genre. really confident and clean lines and great shapes. a really pleasing energy to his work.

so you're out to become a comic artist? are working as an assistant now? good luck! high-five for being born in 1980.

Unfortunately, no. I have a very typical job for a foreigner, but it is so boring that sometimes I just want to shoot myself. -_-;;;

but you get to live in japan, that's an adventure in itself!
