It’s here! After a week of feverishly pushing graphic pen to graphic tablet, my excessively Japanese blog intro trailer is complete. You can access this incredibly awesome masterpiece below!
What did you think? Each of the drawings featured in the trailer were inspired by Japanese popular culture. The character work and all of the speed line drawings I did exclusively on my own, but the other backgrounds were obtained through the resource stock photo section of Deviant Art. A brief description with links and the corresponding artists can be found below.

Moonlight On Sea by Olbor 62
The music for the trailer is Ai Wo Torimodose from the original intro to Fist Of The North Star and the marginally offensive voice over work was done by yours truly. I probably won’t be able to do quite so many cartoon posts with baby fast approaching, but hopefully this trailer and a soon to be released cartoon section will tide you over for the time being.
A friend encouraged me to make a cartoon related to a sad story about a cat left to drift on a buoy. Here are the resulting redemptive drawings.
