On the Road

I suppose I should go into technicalities more often but there's a reason why I don't; it's the same reason I don't like to listen to the commentary tracks in DVDs and Blu-rays - it takes away the magic. But now I make a small exception. This series was colored with Neopiko felt tips instead of my usual tools of trade, Promarkers, as I still try to get a feel to these new, "hawt" pens. Colors were selected from "Manga Set 2" and "Skin Set". I like how Neopikos' color pigment is bright but the pens run out so fast on art papers I use as Neopikos are designed to be used with super-slick "manga paper". And I don't like that kind of paper as it has no texture to it.

United We Stand

This week we have a series of one-picture updates, four vertical portraits. Moving from apartment to another last week took so much time and energy so I couldn't prepare any new picture stories or anything like that. Luckily I had done these beforehand. Lets open the mini-series with one of the best views from recent fall/winter 11/12 fashion collections, Tao Okamoto donning a United Bamboo piece. If I were a girl and could afford high fashion, I'd love to have something like this in my wardrobe!
