T-shirts

 

The final design for the T-shirts, we are going to sell them with 25 Euro my autograph on them ( so hard to carry them to Europe, may be 10, tops for each ) We could take orders from other countries with shipping fee 15$
Considering about c…ost-effectiveness ,,,these are,,,??? I just have made for manga fans.
Thank you for the advise, Mauro !
ヨーロッパツアー用Tシャツの最終案です、しかし運ぶの重くて10枚ずつぐらいしか持っていけないので手間のわりに全く儲からない・・・ファンの人たちが喜んでくれるから持って行くだけかなーーー(無料で差し上げたりもするし うう・・)
外国からオーダー受けても送料かかるから高価になっちゃうし 誰も買わんか(ネガティブ)。 もっと見る
Odaiba

We went to Odaiba to see the big top (circus) and enjoyed a lot.
http://www.fujitv.co.jp/events/ovo/index.html
お台場のシルクドソレイユ・オーヴォへ家族と行ってきました、おもしろかったーー!
お台場って昔は野っぱらでよくバイクで遊んでました・・ほんと30年前とは大違い。
 豊洲もすっかり変わりましたねーー。

Harvest time

It’s time for the harvest on our veranda, we eat fresh vegetables every single day !
この時期はベランダのプランター収穫まっさかり 毎日おいしい農薬なし野菜食べてます。
いんげんやシソ、春菊、菜っ葉にレタス、ピーマンも自家製。ほとんど僕ひとりで育ててますよ。

Big Wow in July

We enjoyed a lot about Big Wow in San Jose.

So many manga-fans came to my table and we had a nice chit chat.

As usual, We had a small gathering after that,it was so fun !!!

I am sure we will be back next year.

遅れましたがサンノゼのビッグワウ写真です、漫画大会の常連たちも含め色々な人達が僕のテーブルに来てくれました、来年も行きますからヨロシクねーー!!

Sicily !

We are totally bingers with these luscious seafood pastas without compunction in Sicily.

The local  guide with his car was so considerate, he took us to the best spot for the nice view.

シシリーのうにや海鮮パスタは最高、頼んでいる地元ガイドは英語もできるし車も快適 楽しんでますーー!!

The Comicon in Milan

Before we joined the comicon in Milan, we had met Massimo who has been a friend of mine on FB and his friends Daniele and Marco ( they gave me beer set as souvenir, thank you all)

I think, it’s rare to meet  FB-friend in other countries in person. I am so lucky and you should meet, when you had a chance.

And comicon itself in Milan was so great. Owner was kind and so many people came to meet me, thank you manga-fans in Italy. I enjoyed Milan, I  sure will be back within a year again.

イタリア・コミコンへ行く前にノヴァラでフェイスブックのお友達マッシモサさん(翻訳家・大学講師  写真右)や彼のお知り合いダニエルさん(漫画家・美術学校講師)とマルコ(脚本家・講師)と会いました。

皆でビールで乾杯後楽しいトーク おみやげに修道士がtうくったというビールまでいただき大感謝!

漫画大会は盛況、コスプレの人たちを見てるのホントに楽しい。しかしミラノ風カツレツって有名だけどおいしくて超巨大だったよーーー(こわ)

Tsuna-con in Netherlands

I joined Tsuna-con in Netherlands last Sunday.

Peoole there includind the staff were so kind and good looking (why??)

Eventhough the business was not so great it was worthwile being there.

Meals in Netherlands were outstanding ( tasted like the ones in Belgium..I didn’t know they shared the same taste or not)

日曜日にオランダ・ツナコンへ行ってきました。参加者の日本通ぶりにはびっくりで尺八やら合気道・・色々な文化を披露してくれましたよ。

しかし食事の旨さにはびっくり、ベルギーと並んでヨーロッパいちでしょ。

Nice B.J.

 

 

Today, we went to a well known ice cream shop inFlorence. What a great B.J. I gave!

After the last pic I had noticed that chocolate ice cream was ill mannered and gave me Bukkake things. So I had my suit stained all over

…I cried as chocolate bandid.

今日、フェイレンツエで評判のアイス屋さんへ行って来ました、うまいいい!!最後の写真の後、チョコアイスのシミをスーツにつけちゃって(泣)

Pinocchio

I bumped Pinnochio on the street, he is everywhere in Florence.

And then I went to eat Ice cream again.

またピノキオに出会ってしまった、フィレンツエではどこにでも出現する彼です。その後はアイスクリーム屋へ(いつものとおり)

Foods

Now, I am so bulimic here… Ican’t help myself, because so many good-tasting  foods here in Italy.

This tentacle underwear won’t help to sustain my fat tummy .

イタリアではあまりに食事がおいしく過食になってしまいました・・このタンタクルパンツでも膨らんだお腹は隠せない!!

An Open Air Market

We went to an open air market for organic foods in Santo Spirito today.

This italian laday working for the coffee shop as a cashier was so kind to the tourists like us, thank you!!

イタリア、サントスピリットのオーガニック市場へ行き買い物の後、いつもの様にお茶・・今日の喫茶店のレジ係嬢(?)はとても親切でした、ありがとーー!

Cheese !

Am I a big cheese? No,I’m just cheesy one.

Actually,we went to Pienza and Val d’Orcian in Italy and bought some cheese there.

My family and I love ceese a lot, wanna some? No cheese whiz? Got it!!

今日はイタリアの高原Pienzaへ行ってきました、チーズが美味しいというので大量買い、食べきれるの??

 

 

Italy

Now,we are in Italy( Florence) since New year days.

I am going to join some comicons in Europr and give

classes for the student of art colleges, hopefully I could meet some of you here.

イタリア滞在中です、漫画大会と美術の授業をする予定ですがかなり(というかほとんど)

観光の時間がとれるので同伴家族は大喜び。僕は生ハムとチーズ、パスタそれにグラッパ(イタリアの強い酒)

で大満足!

Eating Italy

We can eat almost identical food materials here in Italy.

Every single day, we go shopping to the market buying some vegetables,fish and meat.

The life seems easy in Italy,let’s take it easy!( I know that I could say it,because we are merely tourists here)

ここイタリアで毎日市場に通ってます、食材はかなり豊富で魚も肉も新鮮野菜の種類も多いし外食は値がはりますが食生活は充実しまくり。

チーズとパスタ、生ハムは感激のうまさです。

“Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown Tokyo”


Actually, manga-fan from Hong Kong mentioned
that there are some YouTube for that title.

I was with the host of TV show “Anthony Bourdain ” in Tokyo for CNN. 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JPJmlKD7kgI

( this is full version of that TV show)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JPJmlKD7kgI&feature=youtu.be&t=28m49s

(this is my part)

You can enjoy my broken English.

CNNの番組内でぼくが紹介されてます・・フルバージョンは上記、下記は僕が出演しているパートです。

下手くそな英語ですがみていただければ幸いですーーー。

India・・curry, people, stray cow and chaos

My family and I went to India.

As you guess..I had a severe diarrhea, medicine
didn’t work ( even the Seirogan- which is supper medicine for that in Japan
didn’t).

I had lost 2 kilos, because I couldn’t eat
anything before I came back from there.

Haha…it was not biggie, I love India in
many way.

インドでは予想通り下痢まくり 胃腸の弱い僕なのでしかたないですね・・しかしインドはいつ行っても楽しめます。市場の人々は活気に満ちていて最高だし本場のカレーは抜群にうまい!

FACT

We are going to Belgium to join this in Belgium.

FACTS – comics, sci fi and anime
festival

www.facts.be

ベルギーの大会に行ってきまっす!! ビールとワッフルで飽食じゃいいいいーー

Belgium…Heaven!!


I went to Belgium to join the comicon
called FACT.

Although I have heard about a good
reputation of great beer in Belgium.The truth..the way beyond my imagination!!
It is HEAVEN ! for beer drinkers!

I got loaded with tons of beer every single
day, I really didn’t want go back Japan.

Plus, meals were so nice, do you believe
that? I am Osaka man, I am so fussy about the food.

I felt completely surrendered the meals in
Belgium.  What kind of people are they?

ベルギーのビールはうまいのなんのって・・つまみを食べるのがもったいないぐらい.

毎晩飲んだくれてました しかも食事も絶品、最高です。

Comicon/FACT in Belgium

Some of my manga-fans came to our table to
say ” Hi ” to me.

Thank you guys who came to see me.

The staffs were so considerate, they often
visited our table and asked us whether or not we needed the drinks ( meals were
free about lunch and dinner) amazing !!

漫画ファンも大勢僕のブースに来てくれました、スタッフさん達はすこぶる親切だし・・・ベルギーってホントすごいです。

Party

As usual, We had a small gathering.

Nice couple came to drink together with us.
Thanks !

いつものように漫画ファンと交流会・・・またしてもビール飲みまくり!


 

I met Anthony Bourdain from CNN TV Show in Tokyo

Anthony
Bourdain

TV staffs took a shooting while we had a Japanese meal in a downtown area,
it gonna be aired this fall. (Ii got loaded and of course my English was
wrecked as you know already)

アンソニー世界を喰らうのホスト、アンソニーと東京門前仲町のちゃんこ料理店「三重ノ海」でCNN1時間番組の収録を行いました。トマト鍋や松阪牛を食べながら漫画談義・・酔っ払っいの僕の英語は一層ひどいものになってますが、この秋放映だそうです。

AnimeExpo


It’s been a month since I came back from LA
joining AnimeExpo.

In LA, I met wonderful people from deferent
region with various career including local ones. We had small gathering with
them ,had a chit chat with beer.

Wow this is the life !

I also had a panel in Animecon for
manga-fans without interpreter. Even though my English is quite broken, I
believed they got a big kick out of that, Thank you people in LA. and thank you
people in LA

早いものでロサンゼルスのアニメコンから帰ってきてひと月がたちました。1時間のトークショーを通訳なし、独りでこなしたり大会後の飲み会を漫画ファンの人たちと楽しんだり・・本当に楽しかったです。
また行きたいなーーー!!!

Big Wow !


I was in San Jose to join BIG WOW again !

I met nice people there including some professionals.”
Neal” again!!!

His name-Neal Adams was just as same as “God”
among us ( young-wanna-be-pro type of amateurs)

I had never dreamt of seeing him in person
in my life. But TWICE, I met him, at Philadelphia last year and San Jose this
time.

I think I am the luckiest man in the world !

去年ニール・アダムスに会えて感激したのに今年もサンノゼで会えました・・他にオリヴィアとか僕の大好きななイラストレイターが来ていたので大感激。

スタン・リーは隣の会場だったので会えなくて残念!

Bib Wow 2


Like Every year, you can meet fantastic
people in comi-con.

Enjoy that!

相変わらずのコスプレ揃い  楽しかったです!

Big Wow 3

I was tied up with sketching during Big
Wow… But, last day, We had small get-together with local manga fans. it was awesome!!

大会中はスケッチばかりしてました(お仕事ですから)

最終日に地元の常連漫画ファンと小さな飲み会を開いたのが最高でしたよー!!


 

London

Before I joined MCM London Expo I took part in the movie shooting titled “Spiderlings”as a cameo part. (Wow, I got guarantee///I felt like a movie star!! must have been a ham actor”)

Gabriella is a producer of that movie and having a nice family as her movie staff member.

イギリスの漫画大会へ参加する前に映画の撮影に参加ししましたよーーー。 セリフも少しだけどあったしギャラまでいただいたので気分は映画スター(大根役者か)プロデューサーのガブリエラとそのスタッフ(家族)は親切でとてもかんじが良かった、ありがとう!!

NYCC

We had been in NY City to join NYCC.

It was so huge!! A lot of people were there for taking a look at the Game booth, Comics and Manga.

ニューヨーク・コミコンへ行ってきました。規模が大きく漫画家用ブースは別棟でした・・変なコスプレ人も多かったぞ!

NYCC 2

I saw tons of cos-play people in there. Some of them were so funny, cute and fantastic.

A man with tentacle tattoo came to our table and showed his masterpiece, thank you!

コスプレの人達は本当にうじゃうじゃいました。西洋の方々はパフォーマンスするのが大好きでんな・・・触手を腕に墨入れしている男性が僕のところに来てくれました サンキュー!!

 

NYCC

I am fixing to have a table as a special guest at NYCC (New York Comic Con) and now, I am doing some uncensored sketches for manga fans there ( I made this blur, because of the censorship in Japan) I am going to sell this kind in NYCC.

 

ニューヨークの漫画大会用にぼかし抜きのイラストを描いてます(載せているカットは日本向きにぼかしをいれました)まだスクリーントーンとか貼ってないけど見本ですよーー。

Tentacles in Osaka

 

My family and I went to Osaka. We found out so many TENTACLES there.

Yes, it’s my home town. it is.

Posters

 

I have made some posters based on Urotsukidoji for London Comicon.

My manga in French

 

 

   I met someone who was raised in Paris and now lives in Japan.

With his help, we have a chance to publish my works in French again.

Previous publisher went bankrupt ( because of my works lol) so I really need to have my books in French.

在仏38年、現在日本の雑誌社で仕事をしている方と知り合いました。その方の助力でぼくの漫画を再び (以前の会社は倒産・・とほほ)フランス語で出版できそうです、捕らぬ狸かなーーー!!

People in Paris

We tried to go this bar (designed for manga-fan in Paris) first but it was full.

We changed the bar….horrible bar with hideous waitress. She took the order, charge.. everything so wrongfully!

 People in the next photo are the ones we went out on the town together.

写真に写っているのはパリの漫画好きが来るバーだそうです、ここが満員だったのでしかたなく近くのバーに行ったらそのウエイトレスウがひどくて注文や請求を間違えるしさんざんでした。次の写真は一緒にバーに人達(前の写真と重複してるかも)

Japan Expo

We are back from Paris.

There were so many people ( I took this photo very early morning)in the daytime.

Thank you all manga-fans who came to my booth.!!

パリのジャパンエクスポから帰国しました。もう大変な人だかりで驚きました。10社以上のテレビを含むメディアから取材を受けていたので連日忙しかったです。ブースにきてくれた人達ありがとう!

People there

I got acquainted with some people in Paris. They are so nice and easy to go around with. We went to the city to drink together. ( not at this sushi bar)

漫画大会で知り合った人達は本当に気さくで良い人達でした。この写真に写ってない人達とも一緒に街で飲んでましたよ。

Neal Neal Neal !!

 

Finally I met Near Adams in Philly.

He had changed my manga-life when I encountered hid works such as the Dead Man , Bat Man, X-men etc.. I was teenage boy as apprentice for my mentor in Tokyo. He became my soul mentor since then.

 We talked about his works, his inking techniques and why he had stopped inking. We could share the particular things as professional

 

ボクの中では神的存在だったニールアダムスとフィラディルフィアで会った。サイン会途中だったにも関わらず10分も話し込んだ、なぜかれは初期にペン入れするのをやめたのかとか、、他のインカー(ペン入れだけする漫画家のこと)の話などプロ視点から見たアメリカンコミックスの話に言及した。あーーー会話ツールとしての英語が出来て良かった、心底そう思いました。 長年想い続けてきた彼への憧憬が見事に花咲きました・・・まじ嬉し涙!

People in Puerto Rico

You should go to Puerto Rico ! You will face their smile, intelligence, their dance and incredible coffee!!

プエルトリコの良いところがありすぎて書ききれない・・・ここの人々に出会って良かった。なんだかボクの中でプエルトリコの存在が大きくなりすぎてしまいました、また来年行こうと計画しています。観光はあまりしなかったけど最高の人々です。

Manga-fans

 

We have met a lot of people ( some are in cosplay,some are ordinary) in US. and Mexico.

They are so nice and considerate ..and funny!!

漫画大会に来る人達はとても楽しい。普通の人もいればコスプレでギンギンの人達も・・・メチャ腹の出ているスーパーマンもいたりして笑えます!

Message from Toshio Maeda 2

Seems like some people obviously hate this Video…sorry !

People have a particular image about me as a Tentacle Master, like it or not, I m stuck with that and I should get along with it.

このビデオはちょっとグロそうなのであまり評判はよろしくないような・・・エロ漫画家に評判もへったくれもない・・かな!

Route 66

We dropped in at the palace where the Route 66 began on our way to Grand Canyon.Japanese young tourists didn’t’ know [ Route 66]  what??

The Bus guide and I were talking about Steinbeck and the Grapes of Wrath etc…Japanese young tourist didn’t know those things neither…What the f○ck!!

グランドキャニオンに向かう途中、ルート66発祥の地と言われる床屋さんに立ち寄りました。日本人の若い旅行者はルート66て何?ってか・・世代の差ね。バスガイドとスタインベックや「怒りの葡萄」の話をしていたら若い旅行者カップルが「何ですか それ?」って・・そりゃ世代の差の問題かなぁ・・。

Big Portion

One of the greatest things of being in other country is the food.

When we were in LA we went to the local restaurant and ordered a stake- salad ..It wowed us. It was big, huge.. Mega salad! In Japan, it would be the one for 4 people!!

In that photo.. We already ate some.

And we met African American couple, we took a photo together.

旅の醍醐味のひとつが食事、ロスアンゼルスの地元レストランでステーキサラダを注文したら・・コレ日本じゃ4人前ぐらいなんですが!! 写真はすでに途中まで食べた段階(おいしそうなので食事が運ばれてきたときに写真を撮るのを忘れてしまいました)

隣の黒人カップルと写真をとりました(奥さんも撮ったんだけどね・・女性だから載せるのを控えました)

In San Jose

Before we went to the party, we just dropped by a coffee shop and ordered sandwich…that was so thicker than I expected, I couldn’t eat it alone.

前夜祭に出かける前にちょっと腹ごしらえと思い喫茶店でサンドイッチ頼んだらこれがぶ厚いのなんのって・・・パーテイ行く前に満腹になっちゃうやん!

They are so cute

Now cos-play is so prevailing all over the world. What amazed me is tha… they just put regular Japanese high-school girls uniform on with stuffed animal like kitty chan, amazing. I guess it one of influence of Japan anime or culture.

コスプレはもう世界中で見られるけど 中にはただ日本の女子高生がキティちゃんのぬいぐるみを持ってる萌え系の子達だいたりして・・日本アニメというか日本文化の浸透度はすごいね。

Now we are back

Hi Taniguchi, Steve and Michel, we are back from manga tour.

We went to San Jose, Puerto Rico, Philly to join comicon and met so many nice guys…they really wowed me!

ようやくアメリカ漫画行商ツアーから帰ってきました・・漫画ファンやスタッフの方々があまりに親切でビックリ、アメリカ人への意識がかなり変わりましたよホント。

Finaly…

 

I met Bernie Wrightson and Alex Nino in San Jose.Wow. (It was Big Wow-cimicon though)I was reading their works and so fascinated with them when I was around 17…I was so honored to meet them in person.

なんとサンノゼではアメリカ漫画界の巨匠バーニーライトソンとアレックスニーニョにあいました。ぼくが十代から愛読してますよと言ったら喜んでくれました。バーニーには持参した彼の著書にサインしてもらった(ミーハーか) まじうれしかったーー

Shin-okubo

I went to Shin-okubo to cerebrate my friend after he got the Tezuka-Osamu manga award. It was so crowded in Shin –okubo. I thought there was some event or concert around there. But it was merely Korean culture or Korean pop singers fad ( Sin-okubo is well know as a Korean town)

手塚治虫賞をとった友人の為にパーティをするというので会場の新大久保へいってみたら・・・何かコンサートでも開催するのってほどの混雑ぶり、昔は風俗関係でよく行ってたんだけど今や韓流の人達で満杯なわけね。

My friend Keiga

He got that award. We have been keeping in touch for more than 30 years. Wow!

手塚賞を取ったラズエル細木(ぼくが彼を呼ぶときにはケーガ)・・もう30年以上の付き合いになってしまった。

My picture

Finally…I have shown my true tentacle (out of my nose).

I sent this to Japan Expo in France as a picture of mine.

I really hope that they don’t think this is inept as a picture of the official guest for them.

気付いたら鼻から触手が出てくるようになってしまいました・・この写真をフランスのジャパンエクスポ ゲスト作家紹介写真用として送ったんですが、果たして採用してくれるでしょうか?無理かも。

Your Photo

I did this for my friend Brent Millis ( Made in DNA) http://amzn.to/madeindna 

Photo above is original…I gave the arrangement with my taste.

And it has good credit among people just like my photo (top).

If you are my manga-fan and you really like to have that kind of emblazoned photo for the Face book or the Twitter, what ever …ask me to inquiry@urotsukidoji.jp  ( It costs some)

友人の写真をこのように加工しました(上部の写真がオリジナルです)。最近はFace book  とかTwitterに使用する写真の需要が多いようです。もしあなたがこのテイストをお気に入りで ご自分の写真の加工をお望みなら  inquiry@urotsukidoji.jp  へお気軽におたずねください。(有料 要相談)

Kuniyoshi the artist

Hey! No one was there in Machida Art Museum where you could see the genius Artist kuniyoshi as their exhibitions there.

My first encounter with his works was at age 17 、right after I came to Tokyo.His creepy art style struck me so much.

先月行った町田の美術館で観た国芳は良かった・・なんで人がいないの?ちょっと怖めの絵だから・・?

Kunihoshi and my works

You may not find out the affinity with my works and Kuniyoshi.

But I think, deep inside of my sense as an artist…I am influenced by those artists with old engravings.

描画に関して国芳とボクの類似性は一見なさそうですが・・奥深いところでつながってる気がしてます。浮世絵師達の絵を見て感動した10代の頃を思い出しました。

Short manga

Good Samaritan or Swindler?

The other day, One man gave me a call on skype , and he said like this ( below).

Then he sent E-mail…Wow

Kamakura The Place for temples and Dates

My family ( wife, her sister, her mother) and I went to Kamakura. My wife took a picture for us. Sorry I didn’t for you.

There are so many temples and Buddha things around there.

When I was young I just used to be there for a date…on our way back, you now the thing we got some funny business. lol

久しぶりに鎌倉へ行きました。昔はよくきました・・色々な恋人と。帰途はお決まりの・・ハイ言うまでも無し。

A short story in my life 2

In fact ,as manga artists, we can lie ,we can crack any type of joke, including off-color jokes, politically incorrect jokes even racial slurs. Our tongues are not sugar coated. We get paid for that. We are liars.

What other profession can say that? Okay, politicians and lawyers. But they have to wear suits. whereas we manga artist can wear whatever we want.

We could go to work in a gigantic Godzilla costume, and our staff wouldn’t question it. People cut us a large amount of slack.

About 15years ago, I got an Idea for a good prank. One day at my office I put on a pair of panties with cheep pinkish polka dots on my head. Because my editor was coming for a meeting and I really wanted him to be surprised.

However, as soon as he barged into my office , he began to bubble telling me :” Sensei, I think the way we see that girl gets molested is…blah blah blah…” and all the sudden He’d left. He’d gone!! I was left alone with the panties on. Adios, ta-ta !

He didn’t mention anything about it ,not a word. It was obvious like a shit on your nose that I had had a pair of flashy panties on my head in front of him. He must’ve taken it granted. He didn’t even take a peek at it . Why? Why?

Was I considered just a crappy transvestite with unusual preference? A psycho? Or did he think I was some pathetic pervert?  Thanks, douche bag !

I’m not someone who puts panties on his head in the office all the time, maybe, just once in a while.

ごめん、これも日本語訳にしなかった・・みなさん英読にチャレンジください。

A short story in my life

One of  good things about being a manga artist is that you can play God and manipulate the fate of all the characters in the story. Their destinies are entirely in your hands.

Put simply, you are the Master of that small universe.

 One day, I got up on the wrong side of the bed. I wasn’t in the mood for work and thought to myself, “I really hate my job!” Once your hobby becomes your career, you tend to lose your enthusiasm for it. Even if you thought it was your true calling in life.

 However, I knew I had to come up with a new story for the month, and the editor-in-chief who kept an eye on me had been busting my butt. Of course, I realize that meeting deadlines is part of my job but, due to my nature as a procrastinator, I already had the deadline delayed once already. Another delay wouldn’t be acceptable.
 

All the editors knew my tricks and shady excuses. So this time, I had to play hardball otherwise they would never believe me. I really don’t know how many relatives or acquaintances I’ve “killed” over the years thanks to my silly excuses but the bodies just keep on piling up.

This time I was like, “I’m in a state of shock right now, my uncle in Osaka has passed away and I must attend his funeral ( sniffling my nose) yeah, yeah I know… You can bet I’ll be straight back to finish my work once the funeral is over. Sure, I’ll come back A.S.A.P and work on it first thing in the morning!

 Seems like, I am a typical type of pathological liar. But it’s not my fault. We’re all like that. Desperate manga artists will go to ridiculous lengths to get around a dead line.

 Now, back to the day I was talking about… I decided to vent my frustrations on a particular character in my manga story to let off some steam.

Okay, who’s gonna be my victim today..?  Yes, this insufferable woman! She’s so prudish and arrogant, who else could be more deserving? What kind of ordeal can I put her through, I wonder..?

I started creating the sequence of events in my head. Let me see… that women had noticed that she had a hemorrhoid, big one, big, enormous mega boil around her ass caused by horrible constipation. “Nice !! “  Her butthole had swollen to hideous proportions – much like her head.

Well, it’s a nice start, yeah, not bad.

She was having a terrible morning. she had got wasted on her own last night after drinking too much and trying to forget about her boyfriend dumping her. He insisted it was him, not her, but she refused to believe what he was telling her.

She felt miserable and nauseous. She dashed into the bathroom immediately and threw up all she had in her stomach. Unfortunately her pet John, a pit-bull puppy, was there. He was always in the toilet because of his name “John.” ( Pardon the pun )

John had a nervous disposition and, as such, was scared half to death upon hearing the guttural sounds of his owner spewing down the toilet. Ugehhh….it made him panic uncontrollably. He started barking like mad before taking a leak, scratching her, then finally defecating on her face.

 Her face now became like a worn ragged duster…covered in John’s excrement. She couldn’t get to work on time looking like that…she decided to call in sick.

Obviously it was a lie… but she didn’t care any more. She had nothing to lose. She was beginning to caress John, her pit-bull puppy, with his poop all over him and her face as she sat there feeling spaced out and fuzzy headed in the bathroom.

       So…the title of this month’s manga will be; “ Bull shit John’s Diary.”

 

ぶれんだんーー!!

We were pissed again! He really is a nice bloke, hope we could hang out soon.

またブレンダンと飲んだ・・ホントいい人! また一緒に飲みたいなーー

My mother in law is quite young. Although she is 85 years old, she looks young and active.

This is her vegetable curving, the white flower is made by horse radish( not the white flower on the right picture of two) ..Wow !

La noche de la convencion de manga en Puerto Rico 2012 (5/26 y 5/27) quisiera salir a tomar con los fans del manga.Los fans de manga que residen en Puerto Rico tengan la amabilidad de revisar la pagina oficial de PRCC.

Creo que saldra el aviso en el mes de enero.

Toshio Maeda

 正直言ってこういう漫画大会が無ければ一生プエルトリコに行く機会は無いと思う。ボクの中でプエルトリコと言えばChichi Rodriguez Jennifer Lopez Ricky Martin って感じかなーー。今回で初めて世界地図の中でプエルトリコがどこにあるか知りました(無知でごめんなさい)スペイン語と英語の両方話せるなんてすごいね、食事はスパイシーっぽいけどボクの好物だよ(ボクの胃はその案を却下してるけど)

プエルトリコの皆さんに会うのを楽しみにしてますよーー

 Diciendolo sinceramente , si no se realizase esta convencion de manga , creo , que no tendria la oportunidad de ir a Puerto Rico.Lo que conozco de Puerto Rico es a los famosos Chichi Rofdriguez , Jennifer Lopez y Ricky Martin . Esta vez por primera vez pude saber donde se ubica Puerto Rico en el mapa mundial.(disculpenme por desconocer).

Me sorprende que en Puerto Rico puedan hablar español e ingles . Y creo que la comida de alla es un poco picante pero es mi comida preferida. (aunque mi estomago diga lo contrario).

Estoy esperando mucho encontrarme con todos en Puerto Rico.

Lunch

I am eating the lunch with the pouty face・・・don’t know why.

むっつりした顔で昼食・・なぜだろーー

In a Mall

A man I saw was drinking alone alternately sake , beer and something //wow,a real boozer!!

近くのショッピングセンターでみかけた男性・・酒とビールとなにか別の物をかわるがわる飲んでいた、大将、酒豪でんな!

Grave

My family and I went to the grave and prayed.I can enjoy my life while it lasts.

お墓に行ってきました、そのうちボクもここに入ります。

Art Book

 Now I am doing for the Art book

#1  rough sketch ( The editor in chief said it was too adult)

#2  Redraw

#3  Finish work ( penciling)

#4  Study for character

 All in all…you have to adjust and compromise to some degree for kids art books

Am I selling out ? Am I prostituting…?

絵本用のスケッチです ラフデッサンはあまりに大人っぽくて編集さんが却下・・最後の鉛筆カットとはかなり違いますねーー

まぁ・・幼児用はかなり自分の絵のスタイルと違います。

Shops for Dried Fish

This is one of those shops selling dried fish or dumplings made by fish.

おもしろい干物屋さんをみっけ!

En la region de Hakone , se encuentran bastantes tiendas que venden pescado seco . Y los visitantes lo compran como regalo para sus familiares y amigos.

Souvenir

Dumplings as souvenir were rapped by beautiful paper…must be expensive!!

薩摩揚げとかがきれいに包装されてるけど 思いっきり値段が張りそー!!

Who is this Lady?

When I tried to smile or make funny face, one old lady did it too behind me like standing ghost.  She is my mother in law ( 85 years old) who is so funny, I love her.

バックに映ってるのは義母・・冗談はなんでも通じるしメチャおもしろい人です。

La persona que esta atras mio es mi mama . Siempre bromea conmigo y es una persona muy divertida.

En esta foto , saca la lengua y pone una cara mas graciosa que la mia . Como siempre esta jodiendo.

Brother

Chin up  walk tall !

兄弟か!

Black and yellow one you could see over there was some kind of creature in the sea or banana?

向こうに見えてる黒と黄色の物体はバナナ?それとも海の生物?

This is the Ryokan

  This is the old Japanese style Inn ( Ryokan) we were staying for two days. In the day time, they serve sea food meals to visitors.

I wish I was bringing other “sea food” for the night .

ここが今回泊まった旅館、昼はレストランのよーな感じ。
