Does anybody remember how I posted about a hunt for the coolest house ever way back in 2008? (Of course not, lol) And was excited that it was in Kichijoji?

Well, I got to go inside it on Monday!! (Yay!) I interviewed Umezu Kazuo-sensei, aka the grand-master of Japanese horror manga, in his new house, and he has got to be the most genki 70-year old that I've ever known!! The column won't be out for a few months, but when it does come out, I'll let everyone know! He gave me a lot of tips on how to get myself published too! I'm so grateful!

I hope that I am that genki when I turn 70.. and OMG the inside of his house is to die for. I was just floored... and it was so much fun!! Kind of a disappointment when I ran straight from there to Konomi-sensei's studio afterwards (it's nice but not spiffy like that!), to start working on this month's chapter of Tenipuri. ^^;;

But just today, I got to draw trees, several bald eagles, and a flowered bedspread! So I guess you can't say that it's a total loss of a day.. right? ^^;; Currently in my off-hours (aka the time we are alotted to sleep), sitting at my desk and wondering how much of my own stuff I can get done before I succumb to the need for shut-eye....

I really, really wish that this place looked like Kazuo-sensei's house right now, though. I mean, who doesn't want walls made out of red velvet????!

Really, really sleepy. I need to study too, but I don't think that I will be able to make it. Need lots of energy for drawing more non-tennisy things tomorrow for our tennis manga. I did have a really great idea though!! In connection with the prints I have been working on (slowly) forever. OMG I can't wait to finish, now!

But first, bed. *nods off*
