という最近話題のアレ、「日本人の人生の中で数少ない楽しい時期である十代ですらまともに楽しめなかった人間たちのためのある種の救済」という答えが正しいと思う。
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE INANIMATE OBJECT?
Asked by tumblrbot

That was quick…
My favorite would have to be a writing utensil of some sort. Probably a Pentel Brushpen.

Multitrack A Capella Cover of the ‘Ice Cap Zone Act 1′ Song From ‘Sonic the Hedgehog 3′

Ok, I’m not usually into a capella  remakes of stuff but this is pretty good.

This made me wonder what happened to Sonic music. Much respect to Masato Nakamura and Michael Jackson (supposedly involved in composing Sonic 3). About half of what made Sonic games so good back in the day was the music and boo to Crush 40 and the whole generic power rock thing that Sonic has been on in since Sonic Adventure (though i’ll admit, “Open Your Heart” was decent as an opener to the new series).

More sketches. I think this was on the train from Berlin to Amsterdam in the summer of 2011. A few more are on my blog… http://nycsubsketch.blogspot.com/2013/04/a-little-bit-of-berlin.html

Catching up on scanning sketches while I get some bigger things done in the background. This is a sketch from 2011 that I never scanned. I have a few more on my sketchblog http://nycsubsketch.blogspot.com

Finishing things up, here are a few sketches from my trip last year.

The first one is a page of quick sketches from the Marunouchi Building in Tokyo, the second is a portrait of my best friend in Tokyo, Shohei and the third is a page from Seoul, South Korea.

So today’s the big day. MoCCAFest! I’ll be at table A28. See you there!

Starting to set up for MoCCAfest

Starting to set up for MoCCAfest

There’s actually not a lot in this sketchbook because it starts close to when I left Japan and returned to NYC. However, it is not the end because I still end up in Japan at least once a year and I have one more sketchbook from my trip last year.
This was from the plane to Narita from Fukuoka.
Ugh, tomorrow will be the start of a busy weekend…MoCCA here I come!
