"YE OLDE (new) COMIX"

These are some revisited comic strips I made back in 2011 when I was studying abroad.

The first one is loosely based on some chatter some of my friends were making and the second one was based on my time in Berlin.

Katy Perry was coming to town and it was very obvious.

"JUNGLE JOURNEY"

Drew this for a new pen pal!

It was pretty fun… I like markers… I should use them more often.

I think I might try to make more pen pals!

///JSRFANZINE UPDATE

JSRFANZINE SUBMISSION DEADLINE IS FEBRUARY 28TH!!!

*The fanzine will be available digitally with a possibility of going to print. But just expect a digital version for now!*

Check here for more info and posts about the zine! (Including formatting, where to send your submission, info about the interview with Hideki Naganuma, and more.)

If you have any questions, send them to jsrfanzine@gmail.com (which is also where you can send in your submission. We’ll still accept submissions without a statement of intent. We just wanted a nice headcount to see who was planning on making work.)

Oh, and another thing about files: it would be appreciated if you use your name or screen name to name the file.

It will just make figuring out who’s piece is whose much easier when it gets to curating all the submissions.

***A heads up on characters and subject matter: we’ve been getting a lot of people drawing or wanting to draw the same characters. 

So, in hopes of showing more variety and love for all the characters, places, and elements in the series, we do want to suggest staying away from the following characters/places:

  • Beat
  • Gum
  • Yoyo
  • Mew/Rhyth
  • Jazz
  • Love Shockers
  • Rokkaku-Dai Heights

They’re still welcome, especially in group drawings. We just want to show many facets of the series. So that can include the following: different characters, making your own graffiti inspired by the games, and different places. If you’ve already sent in a statement of intent, no worries.

Submissions are due February 28th and an announcement on who’s in should be out by the end of March!

Best of luck, Rudies!

P.S. Make sure to click the photos and read the captions! The artists and their websites are in there!
