I have yet to take the plunge, which is odd - I'm usually the one with the sweet tooth. I don't know how I feel about that oily residue, though -- it doesn't sound appetizing? I'm going to wait for independent confirmation (i.e. you guys and gals). Some of you must have tried this! Google yields real results, so this is definitely a thing that people do.
Oh, designer jokes. Typically when a designer puts something together for print, they are working in a CMYK color space - Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and the K is for Black (as in Key Black). It has to do with the way printers are set up. Anyway! The point is that Rook's tongue is magenta, his eyes are yellow, he is all black ... only the cyan was missing! UNTIL NOW.
Okay okay you guys don't care.
Yuko's got some new art up on her Tumblr! Take a look.
We haven't kept a car since we moved to Brooklyn - public transit and walking get us where we need to go 99% of the time. When we're outside the city is a different story, but luckily Yuko's parents are kind enough to lend us a car when the need arises. And then we went and did this! I'm sorry, Yuko's parents. You are very nice to us.
Yuko got some great advice for places to look at bridesmaid dresses back in this post, so she picked a day and I went along as moral support. Yuko's on the smaller side; I should have bought her scuba gear, she was swimming in them. But! She did find a dress and get it ordered, and that's a relief for her. Thank you again!
Yuko has a guest appearance over at Dirt Between My Toes! Rad!
Happy Thanksgiving to our domestic readers! My brother is visiting from California, so our family is together for the first time in quite a while. We're all catching up.
Truly Yuko loves all creatures on the earth equally.
Holiday announcements, finally! First, THE CUT-OFF FOR DOMESTIC HOLIDAY ORDERS IS DECEMBER 15th. FOR INTERNATIONAL HOLIDAY ORDERS IT IS DECEMBER 1ST. Sorry, I know that's close for international folks! Second - Hokusai shirts are in! Here's a look:
Possibly one of the worst problems to have when you're inking! Or really, doing anything, ever. Yuko usually puts brush to paper between hiccups, until it becomes frustrating enough to make her give up. Rumor has it that Jackson Pollock's art career began with a case of the hiccups.
Yuko says thank you to everyone for the bridesmaid dress suggestions! She really appreciates it. We're taking a look around tomorrow, and I'm mentally preparing for the stress!
The exit was for the Innuendo Parkway, on which we stayed till the end of our trip.
An update for those of you who ordered NEWW sketchbooks - Yuko is working her way through them, and they'll go out as she gets them done. She is putting a lot of work into your sketches!
I have to ask a selfish question of you guys - Yuko is looking to get a bridesmaid dress (actually for the wedding described herein). If any of you can suggest a place(s) in NYC, that would be amazing. We only know of one or two. Thanks!
