Mameshiba! Cute Bean Dog Informs

Published May 2, 2013 by kurolace

Hi All!

mameshibagroup

Have you seen Mameshiba? This is a cute bean dog character from Japan. Yes, its strange… but strangely cute! Actually, they have become very popular apparently. There is a series of short videos where the different mameshiba characters pop out of peoples foods and divulge “unsettling” facts (usually very random, although sometimes they actually fit the situation). Personally I don’t find the facts disgusting or whatever, as the people in the videos seem to, but maybe that’s a cultural difference, lol.

Here’s an example of one of the videos, you can find them all on the Mamaeshiba website or on YouTube.


Mamashiba merchandise is popular. Just search google to see some of the cute items you can get.

Rediscovered Sketches & Comic

Published February 29, 2012 by kurolace

A few days ago I found one of my old notebooks tucked away in my room. Its a grid-design, top-spiral bound note book that I used back when I was in driver’s ed to kill time (nope, not a single driver’s ed note in it – lol, so maybe THATs why I had that accident about 3 years ago). I was “in my prime” as an artist back then. Sad, I know, considering the quality of drawings. These days I’m not even this good, since I don’t practice often 😦 I really should get back to it.

Just for fun I thought I’d upload the scans here so you can see them. The highlight of the bunch is the 3 pages of comic-intro that I was making. I’ve always wanted to make a comic / manga but I often get stuck trying to figure out a good plot. After looking at these pages, I feel kinda like I want to restart PROJECT PEACH (which btw, was inspired by my love of peach-buns from the Chinese buffet! lol).

So… here are the pictures… lol. Tell me what you think of my mad16-yr-old drawing skills (other than the obviously lack of understanding in regards to human anatomy). At the time I was  trying to move away from manga style drawings… with a mediocre amount of success. Unfortunately, this notebook is from the time right around when I started to develop serious symptoms of narcolepsy… I pretty much slept through the last 2 years of high school and stopped doing everything.
