I Luv Halloween!

Wow, it’s been fffaaaarrrr too long since I blogged something, and well in the spirit of Halloween, which I’m quite fond of, I thought I’d post this first video of I Luv Halloween and a link to where you can read the I Luv Halloween manga. This is from writer Keith Giffen and artist Ben Roman. Keith Giffen is a veteran comic book artist and writer who is best known for his critically acclaimed work on Justice League and Legion of Super Heroes. Keith Giffen is currently working on several projects for DC Comics and co-writes and illustrates Dominion for Image Comics. He also rewrites Battle Royale and Battle Vixens for TOKYOPOP. Ben Roman always loved to draw, he never considered a career in art until he moved to Los Angeles in 2003. ANd well, I’m in love with him. Ha.

Anywho, this is not for the kiddies, so please watch if only you’re interested in cartoon gore. I simply love it not only cause i’m sick and I like stuff like that but the artwork is AMAZING in the manga and well, it’s just bad ass. There’s not much I can say to do it justice to please, watch and read for yourself.

Oh, and reading is a must, that’s how i first discovered it and that’s always the best way to get the true feeling, as it was orginally intended. Not that the animation isn’t cool…it’s just, I can’t help but like the original manga version.

You can read the manga here (but you should go buy it too!): Tokyo Pop

I’m blown away to announce that my brother and I have an art show at the Nightlight here in SE Portland! My friend manages the bar and they have monthly artists that they feature and we get to be one of them! Words can’t describe how giddy and overwhelmed we feel. We are quite humbled.

Please show you support of us, and all local artists by attending and saying hi, September 5th at 7 p.m. for our artist reception. Both me and my brother are far from pretentious when it comes to our artwork so have no fear, this definately won’t be a stuffy art showing. AND it’s at a bar! What more do I need to convince you!?

Here’s the official postcard:

Haven’t posted anything in a while and a co-worker of mine posted this on our company blog.  Super cute!  I’ve always loved stop motion animation by Carlos Lascano.

Naruto Chapter 403-SPOILER

So just read Chapter 403…and of course there isn’t a damn thing going on…just more filler before the real action starts. Although it does seem like Itachi gave Naruto some of his power? WTF? Why would he do that and what did he give Naruto exactly? It’s hard to tell what Itachi was thinking since it’s only come to light what he had intended all along for Sasuke. Dammit, now I’m confused and cant’ wait! So Sasuke is still going to attack Konoha but sounds like he’s got something up his sleeve for reinstating the Uchiha clan…if that is his intention. I think he needs to get rid of Madara though…I don’t trust that guy even though I love his silly mannerisms.

Naruto and Sasuke will fight again…only I think Sasuke has a huge leg up on Naruto…we don’t even know how far Naruto has progressed since the last time he released the chakra from Kyuubi and probably was close to dying. AND Madara and the probably Sasuke I bet can control Kyuubi…

…and what about Akatsuki??? Where are those clowns? Do they still want the nine tails? Isn’t that the last demon they need? And Madara is in control of Akatsuki…so would Sasuke let him have Naruto? Or would he want to fight Naruto himself? ACK! Masashi is definately going to be bringing it all to a head here shortly I’m sure…but still… It’s too much to bear! I can’t freakin’ wait!!!

This is insane! MUTO by Blu is an animation painted on walls in Buenos Aires and Baden that I found on the CMD Agency blog posting. Watch it, it will blow you away I’m sure. Having my brother and a few friends be graf artists, I can especially appreciate this one. AMAZING!!

Not only is that rad, but his wall paintings and art are just awesome! Check out all his stuff!

Bleach-Turn Back the Pendulum-SPOILER

Ahhh…just read 1-9 of Turn Back the Pendulum of Bleach

…which follows chapter 315: March of Death

Holy crap. I hate how they always have to stop it RIGHT at the beginning or middle of something HUGE and recap all the god damned characters! Well, it’s a love hate thing, I love how now I get to see the history of characters like Aizen, Shinji, Hiyori, Tessai, Urahara, Mayuri, and a slew of other characters only briefly shown or mentioned in the series. I’m stoked to get to know the background of how the Vizards came to be, especially Shinji and Hiyori…two of my favorite characters in Bleach.

So, what’s going on? Aizen obviously is involved somehow with how even the Vizards even came to be seeing that they were all prominent soul reapers and even captains! I can’t wait to see what shakes down out of this as far as thier history. Haha, and Shinji…he has long hair!! I love his mod cut waaay better. haha. And I love that Hiyori is pretty much exactly the same.

Now, I love that I get to know more about the characters but hate that I have to wait until its done to see what happens with the big battle between the Soul Society captains and the Espada AND the fight between Ichogo and Ulquiorra.

Oh, I just can’t wait! I hate waiting…I just wish I knew japanese and maybe I’d get to read them that much faster…

anyway, can’t wait to see what comes up next for Bleach!
