Hey all! Hope everybody's doing okay.

If you have ever wondered why I haven't been all that active with posting new works these past few years on deviantART, the answer is simple: Japanese took over my life.

A few years ago, I found a method for learning it that makes sense and is very effective, so I've been sticking with it all this time.

Every single day I'm doing at least something in Japanese, whether it be reading manga, playing video games, watching videos online, or listening to podcasts. Even as I'm writing this, I'm listening to an アルミ缶の上にあるラジオ podcast talking about Hajime no Ippo.

Thanks to this method, I'm now able to read Japanese novels and understand about 80 to 90% of them. I still got a long way to go with my Japanese journey, but I'm happy to say I'm no longer in the rut that I was stuck in for so many years.

That being said, I do have a couple of comic projects that I will be working on this summer. I'll try to post regular progress updates on those at my tumblr account for those interested in getting a "behind the scenes" look at how I go about drawing comics.

Also, I have opened up a Storenvy store recently. I just have comics/doujinshi and prints for sale at the moment, but I will also be adding paintings, buttons, bookmarks, etc. in the coming weeks. Feel free to take a look!

NOTE: Stupid DA for not letting me type Japanese beyond six characters in the listening to/watching/etc. fields above. So I just romanized it all. :P Actually, lemme just type it out here:

アルミ缶の上にあるラジオ
ハリー・ポッターと賢者の石
やはり俺の青春ラブコメは間違っている
大貝獣物語

Doesn't that look much better? :D

Hello! It was wonderful meeting you three yesterday. You guys definitely stunned me with your overflowing generosity and patronage! Thanks so much for that! :D

Was it the teardrop.ca website you tried? I'm actually kind of glad it's gone now. I haven't been able to update it since 2007 due to not being able to get in contact with the server owner. I post all my latest work here on DA anyway, so it's not a big loss.

You're very welcome, and thank you! ^__^ Perhaps we'll meet again in the future. Are you guys planning on going to Anime North at all?

I'm not sure how long ago it went down, but it seems like it was fairly recently.

Thank you so much! It's compliments like these that really make all of this worthwhile. :D

Aww, that's a shame. I don't know if you are aware of it, but in October there will be a Halloween Dance + "mini Anime North" event that takes place in Toronto at the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre. If you are able to go, I would recommend it to you. I'll more than likely be there as an exhibitor with my comic group Suddenly Sentai. It's a lively event and always fun to participate in!

Hey, Paul! I managed to find you even without your business card. :) It was cool meeting you at the Con-G Artists' Alley. Thanks for being such a cool neighbor. Hopefully I'll see you at another one sometime soon.
