Review Portfolio tomorrow

Well tomorrow is the day I talk with some representatives. The craziness....I'm bringing mainly my huge sketches, comics, and sketchbook. I'm not nearly done or feel satisfied with my progress so far.

NDK was last weekend. Pretty awesome! I got to meet Mr. Shin Itagaki & Mr. Hisashi Abe. Poor Itagaki-san was sick because of the drastic change in altitude, but kept coming to panels anyway with his poor surgical mask on. It was an extreme delight to meet Abe-san. He is a legend and has worked on so many shows. He did a lot of character animation designs for CLAMP.
I'll post pics soon with the stuff I bought. Darn those CLAMP 3-D land figures. Collecting obsession!!!

I finished "Fight or Flight" aka Guinea pig comic in time for the con. It was a crappy version. I'm trying to get a nicer version on paper with Japanese bookbinding. :D I'm just glad I got the comic done.

Other news, I tried to get my comic gig back at "The Advocate", but the new editor thought "Breakfast at Tivoli" wasn't gritty enough...too high school he said. I thought about it because this time I actually would get paid, but I declined. It's just not my style.

I'll update again about the results tomorrow. ^^

I look at the timestamp of the blog post and realize that it was posted just a day before this very comment was written.

You're right, Melon. Just because you're faced with the opportunity to get paid for something, doesn't mean you should jump at it. This particular opportunity would seem to demand of you a compromise of sorts. Glad you didn't cave on that one.

Can't wait to see Fight or Flight. Your Guardian Angel comics arrived in my mailbox.
