Dejima is really interesting! The idea of a buffer city for foreigners seems like an idea you would find in fiction, but it is very real. It also didn't work! Clearly. Today Dejima has been swallowed up by Nagasaki, and Nagasaki itself has very European architecture in certain places. Here's pictures from Yuko's trip:
Hey guys! We're going to do some more of Yuko's Japanese travelogues this week! These are from the trip she took in April.
We're going to be presenting the awards in the graphic novel category for the Random House Creative Writing Competition tonight! We're a little nervous but it ought to be fun. I love the idea of creative writing scholarships.
Definitely one of the weirder experiences of my life! He did a half dozen card tricks while we were waiting in line, each more impressive than the last. It might be an understatement to say that the dude is really good at sleight of hand.
I've been spending a lot of my time writing recently, which is great! It's going ot mean more comics for your guys in the long run. I'm working on one project right now that I'll announce with details a little later this year - I'm a little over half done writing it. Very excited!
For Caldwell's birthday we got him a tiny king's cloak and crown and Katie got him a scepter that makes a magical glittery sound when you wave it. We piled onto the party bus and rode on down to Medieval Times with his coworkers at College Humor, where we proceeded to cheer the heck out the red knight in a manner most rowdy. The green knight won (the green knight always wins?) but he crowned a little girl the Queen of Love and Beauty and that was pretty adorable. Anyway, happy birthday Caldwell!
Rook loves the air conditioner ... if he ever figures out how to turn it on we'll be in trouble, I think.
BIG NEWS! I'm very excited to officially announce that we've joined Topatoco! We're so psyched and very pleased to be partnering with Jeffrey, Holly and the fine folks at Topatoco to be able to bring you quality wares.
This was a really weird conversation I overheard on the way home. I've got no idea what social rule was broken, but it was pretty serious guys! Those guys were pretty serious.
Have you been checking out the Exquisite Beast lately? They're up to beast 37, and the progress is pretty neat. It takes a long, windy path to get to where it currently is!
That's all for us! It's been a fairly busy week for us, and there's still one day to go ... let's do this! See you next week!
This is about our pal L, who had a pretty great encounter with a kid. Kids are pretty cute sometimes I guess!
I think we'll get to make some cool announcements next week! I'm looking forward to that.
That's all for now! Sorry for the late update! Busy busy. We're like bees up in here. Catch you next week!
