Summer sure flies...

Schools out!!!

Oh, wait, I have fall orientation tomorrow. Dang.

Yeah, not much of a summer break for yours truly. The class I was teaching for the fall admits bootcamp finished on Friday, and was followed by much celebrating. Not sure if that had anything to do with my teaching skills. ^_^ Also my friend Marion just arrived in NYC to start this week at SVA to study illustration. If any more Oregonions move to the big apple, someone is going to have to open a microbrewery around here or something…

Lilia showed me this Japanese Manga strip; its called Hana-Usagi - A Day in the Life of a Bizarre Rabbit. Very quirky and very Japanese. (You can roll over the Japanese text, and it will translate to english for you. Also remember that Japanese comics read right to left.)

Speaking of funny, quirky and Japanese, the Japanese toy company Medicom now makes a Kubrick based on the film Amalie. Apparently the film has been a huge hit among Japanese girls, so I am sure that this is just the tip of the merchandising iceberg. You can see an image here (you'll have to scroll down to the bottom.) They are also finally making a Lupin the Third series, much to my joy.

Ok, I will probably be busy over the next week with various school things, but after that I should get back into the groove of updating this thing. It will be cool to see everyone again.
