RIP Takeshi Shudo
The creator of Pokemon, Takeshi Shudo, passed away at 4:03 AM JST on October 29th at the age of 61.
“MSN Japan reports that Takeshi Shudō, former head writer of the Pokémon anime, collapsed at Nara railway station’s smoking area around 6:00am on Thursday, October 28th. Upon being discovered by a passerby, he was rushed to the hospital and is undergoing surgery. It was soon determined at the hospital’s emergency care center that Shudō had suffered a subarachnoid hemorrhage in his head. ” -bulbanews
RIP Yoshito Usui
I found out a few weeks ago from a fellow Deviant Art friend of mine, Raidenokreuz, that Yoshito Usui, creator of Crayon Shin Chan was dead. He died on Sept 11 on a hiking accident. Autopsy shows that he might have fallen to his death while taking a picture from a cliff as a broken digital camera was found beside his body at the crime scene.
I more or less grew up with Shin Chan when I first bought the manga when I was in Primary 4. I totally laugh like a maniac every time Shin Chan does something outrageously silly and that manga pretty much relieves my stress whenever I read them. I never watched the anime coz his drawings is already kinda, sorta ugly enough. But despite the ugliness of the drawing, the humour overshadows it and you can really just forget that flaw and just enjoy the storyline for the sake of it. Although to read this, you must throw all logic away.
I've read his other works before and they were quite...adult-themed in nature, not for kiddies' eyes, but other than that, his works still rocks. I was in shock to hear about his death. It was just so...overwhelming to hear that this man who had brought smiles and laughter to everyone in the world would be...well...dead.
Even my fiance was shocked. First we lost the King of Pop Michael Jackson, then we lost Farah Fawcett, one of the women who started Charlie's Angels, and now this. What is it with this year and celebrities' deaths?
RIP, Yoshito Usui. You'll be dearly missed...
One of them I already posted in my personal blog but since it's art-related, I decided to post a copy here

I was back in my hometown and somehow dug through my old drawers of my childhood home and discovered some old drawings I had that I did when I was a kid
During the golden years of Disney, I prolly have watched every single Disney movie under the sun. And yes, at the tender age of grade school, I've already discovered the art of gender-bending.
This is my Disney gender-bends, drawn when I was 9 or 10

And look what I have found?!
The most terrifying yet the most beautiful necro art I have ever seen in my life.
Death & The Maiden is based on this poem by the fabulous composition by Schubert based on a poem by German poet Matthias Claudius:
Pass me by! Oh, pass me by!
Go, fierce man of bones!
I am still young! Go, rather,
And do not touch me.
And do not touch me.
Give me your hand, you beautiful and tender form!
I am a friend, and come not to punish.
Be of good cheer! I am not fierce,
Softly shall you sleep in my arms!

Sometimes it just feels awesome to be receiving gifts from fellow fans and friends.
These are just some of the many wonderful gifts (that I managed to filter out of the gajillion favs I have in my fav gallery) that are given to me. Might add others as well soon.

A fantastic collab with !!
Anga was the mastermind behind this concept. He thought of the idea and I merely drew under his direction. The drive behind the concept was very clever. He wanted the first half, where Simba is still in the Disney world, to be drawn by me in my digital comic style. This was then contrasted with his own style. Compared with my style, Anga's traditional drawings bring out the harsh reality of the second world - where Simba meets reality. Of course, this is based on the movie Matrix. In the film, this was contrasted well with colour and form. Anga's idea reflected this well.
It was a great experience working with such an awesome artist. The final result is here for all to see. Great stuff Anga!
It's all started with 's kiriban. Before that I had an idea - to draw comics with someone. And then suddenly I saw the number 6665 in the Juffy's gallery. After 30 minutes of waiting, finally i caught kiriban. Well, after that all started. I don't know how Juffy tolerated me because I was sometimes too meticulous. Thanks her for her patience. After she showed me the first sketches, I was very happy. It was so cool - a person from far away draws by my sketches! And I am very thankful to her for that.
Her style is perfectly approached to this idea.
We've done a cool job!
Hope you like it
Awesome work. One part of me is in awe of it and other part of me can't stop laughing! XD
