Previews and pics and stuff

Journal Entry: Fri Mar 23, 2012, 5:43 PM


Firstly, thanks for 1 million pageviews! (almost) (I'm assuming this journal will probably push it over)
Thanks for putting up with my sloppy art, sporadic updates, and the weird things I write for all these years. You guys are wonderful!

Onto more exciting things.... 8)

I nearly dislocated my arms going to pick up parts of the artbook 8) Namely, the outer jacket and the fold-out (which to be technical, is not so much a fold-out poster, as it is a foldED poster, inserted into the book.) I had to carry a 30lb box many blocks between transit stations and the printshop/my house. Twice. Once for the cover and once for the poster, because I ordered from 2 different places. I can barely type right now because my arms are so numb. Every other word is coming out as a typo haha.

Now just waiting for the book itself x: It should be done next weekkkkkkkk >A<


Anyway, since I don't have the book yet, I just put the cover onto a fake book I made out of blank paper (lol) Crummy photo quality, but I assure you the print quality is nice; the printers did a good job *w*b

The dust jacket:


Halloooo there Ryuu 0:


One side of the fold-out


And some of the free prints you could get if you pre-ordered..



This has nothing to do with anything, it's just in my room and I want to show it.


This as well. It's one of my shelves. The Eli is from toypanda and my little sister made the amigurumi banana 8) (And I bought all the weird banana-animals)

They look a little eerie in the dark like that...

Well, I'm in the animation program at Capilano University right now and the program is super duper intensive so I barely have room to breathe let alone make new artwork for the convention. Maybe I will have stuff ready for next year's convention and just pawn off my crappy old stuff? ;^; We'll see, though~

HAHAHA. Oh man... just keep that one ply with the face on it~

:iconnuriko-kun:
nuriko-kun Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2012
Ohh I considered going into that! But then I realized animation would be really unsuitable for an impatient person like me.. OTL
It sounded really cool though. Good luck with it!
Hopefully see you next year :3

Well, the animation industry also includes the design aspect, so if one day I get to see characters of my design on television or in movies, that would be absolutely amazing. ^^ Animation itself is okay. Seeing something you create move really nicely is cool, but it is super duper tedious unless you're the type of person who can live and breathe it.

Yes, I will be very happy if I can go next year. =] For now, I'm happy that I'm able to get a copy of your artbook!

Where do you get your prints like printed lol I would love to try and do that with some of my art. I wanna have posters of my art~
Lovely prints by the way~ That is really cool that you are doing an art book~ I wish I had money ;A; I would totally buy it. I love your art. <33

I get small prints done at artscow.com (when you sign up, you get lots of free credits so you only pay shipping). For big ones, I usually use Catprint to save on shipping since they ship flatrate (and I print in bigger batches), but Fireballprint also has good prices from what I've seen :)
