WELL, it's been a while, but I'm back! Gearing up for the last semester PLUS recovering from my recent travels. We're having a show for the Character Animation department this month, and the big opening is on the 25th. I didn't participate last year but I'm definitly in this year, so here are a couple of doodly paintings I did just for the occasion:




You know, it's Gidget and Moondoggy. Gouache on that cardboard that comes from the back of a pad of paper.

And here are some photographs direct from my camera! Yes a REAL camera, with film and complex internal mechanisms and f-stops! This is Ueno Park, Tokyo. I spent a long time wondering through this park, hungry. I was hungry most of the time I was there (Japan is, contrary to popular belief, not at all vegetarian friendly, a problem that is only further complicated if you speak zero Japanese...) But the park itself was huge, and lovely, and full of shrines and playgrounds and manx cats and museums.

So neat, Brigette! If I could pick any place to go on earth, this is the one place I am dying to visit. I am so jealous. Awesome pics, have any more? What DID you eat??? If no meat. Glad you all made it back safely, talk to you later!

Did you try any of the curry popcorn at Tokyo Disneyland? I hear they have crazy flavors over there. And characters walking around that you don't see normally...

But those are great pictures. :D

I actually DID eat the curry popcorn! And the pepper popcorn, too. I stayed away from the caramel, chocolate, and SODA flavors though. I also hugged Pinocchio, which was creepy, because he was quite tiny.

Wooo welcome back. That's some awesome stuffs there.
I kind of want to go to Japan just so I can buy lots of tshirts with ridiculous phrases in English.
