fresh sketchbook

I've been keeping sketchbooks since I started college (more years ago than I want to think about). Today I bought my seventeenth. A new sketchbook usually ushers in a period of renewed productivity for me, so I'm anxious to start filling it up with Japanese ghosts and naked women.

celestial sketch

Another sketch for a top secret short story I'm working on while The Big Black sorts itself out.

Yeah, it'll be funky.

The Angel of Death

I would love to have this poster, but I'd have to find some secret room in the house to hang it so my children would never see it. Because it would haunt them.

"The whereabouts of the ball which determine the victor and loser!?"

Today's Wimbledon final between Raphael Nadal and Roger Federer was maybe the best final in that tournament's long history (the classic Borg/McEnroe final of 1980 was possibly better).

Anyways, here's a page from Takeshi Konomi's 'Prince of Tennis' manga. It ran for 379 chapters (42 volumes, which sold over 40 million copies in Japan). There's also been an animated series (178 episodes), a theatrically released animated movie, a live action movie, more than fifteen stage musicals (!), a radio show, numerous video games, etc.

4th of July

Saw fireworks. Drank Hawaiian Punch. What more can you ask for?
