The inevitable end of summer is upon us. Some of my students didn’t even have a summer due to endless review classes and a myriad other cares and concerns. Strangely enough, some of them were online less in the summer than they were during the school year.
Regardless, this summer was one of the most productive I’ve ever had. Apart from a trip or two out of town, I’ve been able to earn extra money via a summer job, written new chapters for next year’s The Black and the Purple D&D campaign, among many other things.
Of course, there’s also the spiritual revolution I’ve had as of late.
One thing I sadly neglected during the summer was drawing. I do have a couple of unfinished drawings lying around (mostly The Black and the Purple characters).
The problem is, my brain seems to be flatlining despite all the activity.
As you can see from this post.
My language is getting more insip-…inpis…dumber…er.
Anyway, the Mangaholix MangaMania 2008 con is coming up at the end of this month.
Details in this poster:
Is it just me or that girl’s outfit was inspired by Yoko’s? Does this mean that the convention will contain more good anime and not just more of the same? (By the same I mean Naruto, Bleach, and Death Note. You might well know that the way the local fanbase obsesses over particular series well until they’ve become passe in Japan and elsewhere abroad vexes me.) I’d definitely love to see Gurren-Lagann more prominently featured in the Con.
In any case, I’ll definitely be going to this year’s con. I ordered a print from Alodia, and I intend to claim it. D:
If anyone plans on going, let me know! We could meet up.
