Power Rangers Were a Little After My Time…
… so with this project there’s certainly a bit of studying for me to do. I’m currently making my way through the first disc of ‘Gorangers’ and have ‘Jurangers’ up to bat.
As some of you may know, I’m currently working on a “hero” comic series set here in Osaka. It’s kind of a springboard for random satirical jests about culture, pop stuff, and life. Don’t want prattle on too much about it right now, but enjoy a few sketches.

I haven’t participated too much yet, but Kevin Christensen invited me to a Daily Sketch group on Facebook which happens to be run by an old teacher of mine (whom probably forgets who I am by now). Kevin is an old college friend that also helped me out a while back with some text book illustrations. They were awesome and I really appreciated the help, but man, I can’t tell you how bad I feel about that. I thought I could get him a copy of the book, but it wasn’t that simple… and now I feel like I exploited his talents. It’s happened to me in the past and it doesn’t feel good. Kevin, if you read this, thank you and I certainly owe you. Be sure to check out his site!! <– LINK
As for the sketch group, one of these two postcard doodles are based on an image from that group. Hopefully I’ll get more involved with the daily doodle suggestions and keep the ink flowing.

So Korra season 4 is coming to a close. If you haven’t been following it, try to hit it up because it gets really good. I’m both excited and sad to see the conclusion of this series. The anticipation is a bit much, so thankfully I have the video game to keep me occupied between episodes.
And how can we not talk about Star Wars VII?! I think there are plenty of people bitching about the things they saw, and just as many spasming over it with excitement. Well, it certainly made my day. I was on the train early in the morning headed to work, dreading my incredibly busy schedule, when I saw it was available… I feel sorry for all the bland commuters surrounding me who couldn’t share the exciting experience. The teaser made my day! My busy schedule meant nothing to me now because I was super charged, fueled by the power of Star Wars. I think my friend Ed put it best, “JUST SHOW ME VERTIGO INDUCING SHOTS OF THE MILLENNIUM FALCON AND FRICKIN LASER BEAMS!”
I’d like to thank the internet for all the awesome absurdity to come, including the “George Lucas Special Edition” trailer and “Light Saber Escalation.”
That’s all for now. Thanks for reading and hope to have some more art to share with you soon!
EDIT: Had the wrong Star Wars trailer. Fixed now ^_^;
