A Bat for a Bat!

30 Dec

I teach English to junior high school kids in Yokohama, and from 2012-2013, I think, I taught at Hiyoshidai Nishi JHS. One student at this school was really cool with me and we often spoke about video games and cool nerdy stuff. He then went home and told his sister about how I had a lot of the same nerdy interests as him and that I liked to draw and was an employee at both Marvel and DC at one point.
She wanted to meet me and just chat and talk about comics. Batman, especially. So she started by writing me some pen-pal type letters that her brother would bring to me. Then I gave her some DC animated features.
She then gave me a batman illustration she did. So, I decided to return the favor.

First, here is the cool drawing she gave me:

Now, here is what I gave her. I penciled it, light-boxed the pencils then inked and colored it. I gave her the colored version and I kept the penciled version:

Here is the final, colored version:

Jim Kelly

20 Mar

This is a piece I’ve been working on for a while. Jim Kelly passed away in June of 2013.

For those of ya’ll not familiar with Jim Kelly the actor, look into some of his movies. Mind you, the acting is horrible, the production quality and fight choreography are comical. But they’re worth watching because his movies are just too entertaining. Especially “Black Samurai”. I Love this movie!

Now, don’t be fooled, Jim Kelly was a master martial artist, it’s just that I guess his movie budget was always really low. Like 70’s porn low.
Jim Kelly was a pioneer in black action movies and in the black-spoitation movie genre that ruled the 70s. He was a real ladies’ man and didn’t take shit from ┬áthe man. Without Jim Kelly the world would’ve never gotten to know “Black Dynamite”.

Japanese Hipsters and their radical wear

2 Oct

It’s was a HOT and HUMID summer in Japan.

I loved it. I love summer. Beats winter.
Not only is winter just painfully cold, windy and just depressing. Winter is also annoying in the sense that you have to wear layers and gloves and so on, just to stay warm. I sometimes manage to lose a scarf or a pair of gloves every winter.
I love summer because all you really have to do is dress down and apply shades to your face. But some people wear more than just a t-shirt, shorts, and shades.
Some people wear sandals, um, a towel (understood, it’s practical), a light baseball cap to block out the excess sun. While others decide to wear…WINTER KNIT CAPS??!!!

YES!

In Tokyo, where trend is literally a freaking religion, Nippon-Hipsters have been wearing winter knit caps to seem cool and original…..DURING THE DEAD OF SUMMER!!

And the thing is it’s not only NOT original; I counted over 62 people in one afternoon sporting this look, but it is NOT practical!!

These people made me feel even hotter just looking at the top of their heads! Who in their right mind would wanna wear a knit cap when it is 90 degrees with 50%-80% humidity??!

HIPSTERS, THAT’S WHO!!

Trying to be all different even though they are just following the crowd. And that is common in Japan. There are mainly 3 major fashion categories, out here, that are annoying to look at:
1.Hipster fashion; god please drown them in a river of their irony.

2.Kawaii fashion; where grown women dress like adolescent girls to attract men (borderline pedophilia).

3.Over-the top-Hip-hop fashion; where girls and guys go out of their way to look like they are actually from a gang in LA or a gang from some east coast ghetto. I saw a shop the other day where all they sell are $2-$5 imitation gold chains and knit caps with the word “Compton” on it. This shop even sells blue and red bandanas, so that the Japanese youth can look like real bloods or crips!
I pray the Japanese kids that wear this fashion do not actually go to Compton looking like this.

Now that summer is officially over and winter is on its way I would like to see what these fashion idiots will come up with next. I’ll be sure to keep ya’ll posted.
