At Tokyo Game Show 2011, there’s a food booth run by Game Center CX’s “former delinquent” cameraman Abe. My GCCX fanart (which features Abe on the Hang-On bike) is displayed there!

The speech bubble note they added reads “An American fan drew this! For more details, please see the special episode on BS [BS SkyPerfecTV]”. The chances of my art appearing on the US trip special is looking better and better! The “GCCX Goes to USA” episode will air on October 6.

I’ve been a fan of Game Center CX for years. So when Arino-Kacho and the crew held an event in Los Angeles this week for a special episode (details yet to be announced) that’s going to air in October, to make up for not being able to go, I decided to finally do a Game Center CX fanart like I’ve been meaning to do for ages. I drew Arino riding on the back of a Hang-On bike with cool guy Cameraman Abe at the handles (a reference to two separate occasions on the show), hapless former AD Inoue chasing them on foot. The pic also has some reference to the show. I then got an LA fan called Jetpack Postman to print out a nice poster-sized print of it to give to Arino and the rest of the GCCX staff.

Here’s a video of the moment he receives it (4:05 mark). Above are some screencaps. My favourite reaction was Abe’s.

Producer/Narrator Kan reportedly was “very protective” of it. Now I wish I had put him and the other show regulars in the pic too but I had no idea who would come on the trip. Arino, Abe and Inoue are my favourites.

This definitely made up for not being able to make it to the event. I can’t wait to see this episode, and I hope my art shows up on there!

Some sharp-eyed anime viewer — I’m going to guess someone from /a/ in 4chan — was watching episode 3 of a new anime called “Mayo Chiki!” and somehow recognized a poster in the background as my Matt Groening-style “Death Note” fanart!

Pretty bizarre but cool discovery. I never would’ve noticed. I am honoured! Thanks to everyone who alerted me to this.

100 Smiles for Japan

My “Smiles for Japan” charity commission project was a big success! I raised $2,500 in total. $1,300 went to Japan Society, and $1,200 went to Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders).

The result can be seen in this giant collage! It’s neat seeing them all together, eh?

Due to overwhelming support and having raised $1300 for relief efforts, I’ve re-opened commissions.


100% of proceeds go to Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders), a non-profit humanitarian aid organization known for providing medical care to developing countries. Currently they are helping the earthquake and tsunami survivors, especially those suffering from hypothermia, respiratory tract infections, and the elderly who have lost their medicine. They’re also rounding up basic needs such as blankets, food and fresh water. They’re a great group and 85% of their funding comes from donations, so donating to them no matter what the reason is a good idea.

I’ve finished 36 out of 52 commissioned portraits so far, and they’re being mailed out today. Those of you who haven’t sent me info on what they’d like drawn yet, please do.

$1,300 raised for Japan

Thanks to all the people who commissioned me, I’ve raised $1,300 for Japan Society’s Earthquake Relief Fund! I’ve donated the money and I’m getting an official confirmation in two weeks.

I will re-open commissions soon, this time for MSF/Doctors Without Borders.

Because I received far more commissions than I had estimated, I’m selling this original Yokaiden piece used in volume 1 to make up for mailing costs and the percentage Paypal takes away.

Local Vancouver online magazine Guttersnipe interviewed me about my project.

100% of proceeds go to Japan Society’s Earthquake Relief Fund

$25 gets you one smiling ink headshot of your original character (or other character of your choice) on approximately 4 x 6″ lightweight cardstock paper. The original will be mailed to you once I’ve finished all the commissions. Comes with a postcard-sized print of my Calvin & Hobbes tribute “Best Friends” that I give out at conventions.

Once you’ve made this purchase, I’ll e-mail you requesting reference pictures or descriptions. Will ship anywhere.

Inspired by Takehiko Inoue’s “Smile” drawings on Twitter.
