New Fall Blog Design + Winter Comiket Pending Results

Redesigned the Blog! How's it look? :D

Comiket Results are pouring in as I wait by the side unable to check my application status. The news is- All applicants were to have received (or so I'm thought to believe) a postcard with a application confirmation number. Using that number we are able to go to the Circle.ms website and use the Comic Market 77's "Circle registration information and information retrieval systems" (コミックマーケット77の「サークル情報登録&当落情報検索システム) and find out the results of our application.

called up my relatives (I used their addy cause I'm not in Japan right now)- said they never got that postcard with number.


...well that screws me up.
I tried everything but looks like it's no use. There is a way to ask for it by sending some lost/unarrived form to the comiket staff but, I found out that it's only a week away from them sending the real packets (Before the confirmation number postcard and online checking existed, people submitted their applications and waited for this "result package" containing either an acceptance form with tickets to participating in comiket OR a "sry you didn't make it" note, which they still do).

So, guess I need to wait a week for the result packets to find out ANYTHING. The worst that can happen is- that packet ALSO doesnt get delivered. :( I sure hope not. Anyways awaiting any news from Japan regarding my Comiket 77 application.

ARRGH.

Well while I wait I must try to get some work done on the books I have planned for that event anyways.

Infinite Bits Gaming Convention and catching up on Manga

:) ...results of Infinite bits-

It sure was a convention focused on videogames, lots of videogame vendors, lots of games lined up to play, even a area with arcade machines and a Videogame museum with a bunch of historical concoles to games of today.

But not really the greatest for the artist alley :/ It was a bit like Mizucon one where the alley was in this isolated corner where hardly anyone came by. I did.... mmm okay I guess. Not great though. Plus the tables next to me didnt appear all weekend, and a bunch of empty tables do hurt the atmosphere. Meet some old familiar folks along with new people as well. It was at the same place Florida Supercon was last time so getting there was super easy (printed some [wrong] directions but only used them once)

...man I'm tired. just tired -_-"

Well I think I can focus on November, no cons or anything to distract me.

By the way, sounds like Comiket results will be in soon, I need to get the postcard sent to me (in Japan) and find out the number to see the results hope I can get to that soon.



...I've caught up reading BLEACH and NARUTO.

...They're both pretty awesome now that I've caught up.
I haven't read Naruto in forever, I stopped before Sasuke VS Itachi.
That battle and backstory was insane.

...>> got all emotional reading Naruto T_T but come to think of it, it has happened before.

Bleach is pretty sick awesome. It's too bad they went into the dumb fillers again for the anime (saw some when I went to Japan).

I'm happy Shonen Jump is a weekly magazine after a month or so there'll be a good amount to read again.

Still FOllowing FMA too of course. DokiDOki <3

October update...

So yeah, lately I've been just drawing lots- from freelance work to webcomics to fanart to just art stuff.

It feels a bit lacking being back home. You can't really compare Boca Raton Florida to Tokyo Japan I guess. But getting into the arts and media industry is tough whether it be here or there. I'm feeling kinda stuck. I'm doing what I need to for now but feels like I need to find a track to start walking on so to speak..

I'm still waiting on the results for comiket 77, which will be the only reason for me to go back to Japan temporarily unless I actually can land a job or something. What pressure. I should start preparing my books before I find out the results so I don't run out of time...

Anyways, Ive become addicted to a site called tinierme and facebook games... Agh. Well they're pretty fun.
I'm cutting down updates for Lost Invisible to three times a week, but still need to decide which days.

My feet are sore from playing soccer.

Still feels funny to be out of school finally. Maybe its a sign to shape up and get working. Sigh...

Well, that's all, cya!

Revolutionnn!!!??

I thought about starting some type of group-
like a group of comic artists or others that want to do stuff in say Japan
like go to Comic Market or other Doujinshi fairs but are incapable of doing so
on their own :3

Like, a big half foreign doujin circle. yeah thats it.

Got the idea when someone asked me questions about Comiket on facebook.
If we got a good mix of people- Those who know no Japanese, Those who know little Japanese, those who know a fair amount of Japanese (like me), and those who know perfect Japanese- we'd be able to get past that "its in Japan" barrier.

I'd do it on my own, but I dont know very many other Japanese artists in person or well enough ;_;




...oh yeah, I applied for comiket 77 by the way.

so yup, just a thought for now.
