浪漫菖蒲 / Roman shobu

An online sketch journal for the person who runs saicoink.

Greetings my darlings.

I'm sorry that it took so so long to update something on this sketch blog again.  I'm not sure if anyone really even cares to check out the blog again. (._.  Anyway, I went on a really long trip, then when I came back my computer crashed completely.  I'm really still mourning over the event and all the data lost (including all the sketch files that I had scanned in advance).  I haven't bought a new computer yet but am using a borrowed laptop.  I'm being lazy about buying a new computer.  I'm wondering if I should just get one with Windows Vista on it? :-(

I moved as well and am really busy with school, so I don't have a lot of time for sketching.  I did, however, take a lot of photos, so maybe I will start a Flickr account or something and upload the files here on this blog as well.  I'm going to try and update more often from now on.

Recently went to the art store and spent too much on art supplies.  A linocut resulted as well as the sketches below.  The linocut I will show tomorrow.

I got you on my RSS feed, so even if you don't update for a long time I'll still know if you do post. :D

I look forward to your flickr pictures if you do set it up. :)

I am sooo reading thisssss <3! I like your choice of colors in the pictures~ I somehow like the last head the most!

I hope your trip went well, aside from the evil computer problems :(

BTW I got your letter and am SO HAPPYYYYY to receive such fun fish stationary from you! Ogata + Sea Otters!!! And you have a pink beluga twin too!!

You should totally do mi comics~ I want to learn more about Mi!! Kim told us a little about Mi when we were in Van and it (?) sounds like it has great history!

Good luck with school!!

Thank you both for your comments! They make me feel so happy.

Angel> Thank you for having me on your RSS feed!!! I want to set up a Flickr account, but I have to buy a new computer first.

hoihoihoi> Recently I've been liking these colors a lot too and using more Copic markers to draw. I think finally I'm beginning to get a better sense of colour. (Maybe not??).

I'm so happy that you got my letter! There is a wonderful store I found in Koreatown that has stock if really old designs from 10+ years ago. They don't sell these old stuff so well so they are always waiting for me when I go visit.

I want to do mi comics too. I wish I had more time! I want to make it into something substantial and interesting- maybe like the Moomin comics. Kim told you about Mi? I wonder what she told you...

Good luck with life and everything!! *A* (I'll write you an email someday)
