My Doings

Ask me anything!   Talk to me!   This blog for my past present and future self made drawings, comics and other paper doings.

It was my last day yesterday working at Variety Insight. To say thank you to my co-workers, I drew these little potted watercolor characters inspired by the works of maruti-bitamin.Valencia Spates

Me and the Devil Blues

A manga that I really adored called Me and the Devil Blues took a 6 year hiatus. I thought Akira Hiramoto was never going to complete this wonderful historical fictional manga about the legendary Blues Musician Robert Johnson. TODAY Young Magazine announced that the series is going back into publication!!!!! I am so excited about this!!

Akira Hiramoto can really draw and tell a gripping story. It’s not everyday that you see African American people in Manga who are not a side kick, a butt of a joke or some other stereotypical thing. I am so excited about this and I hope the continuation of Me and the Devil Blues gets picked up by an American publisher!!!
