It has been a while since I posted anything.

Yeah has been a while since I have posted anything or done any Nanamation work. After Comic Con SD 2011, I got busy with some things in my personal life. No not another baby. Just moving and I took a contract job that took up all my time. I also needed a break.

Now that things are settling in for me, I hope to get my work back on track!

New Ukulele Shirt

The print was such a success that I decided to do the Ukulele girl on a shirt. These will also be at Comic Con SD!

New Ninja Nanamation Shirt

The ninjas are back! These will be at Comic Con! Limited Sizes so get then while you can! My cute husband modeling the shirt. :D Sorry ladies he is taken.

Comic Con SD!!

Yup Nanamation finally got into Comic Con San Diego. I got in a few years ago and was wait listed because I made the mistake of not applying early for the year after. But I got a call early this summer that they had a cancellation and they have a spot for me! YAY!

If you are going this year, come visit me at my table at C-05.

Chinese Zodiac Print

After careful thought I decided to offer the Chinese Zodiac characters as print only. I have a lot of requests from fans if I would print them on shirts. It is such a gamble that I will first try them as prints and if all goes well then I may expand to merchandise.

New Shirts and New Prints

If you don't follow my Facebook or Twitter, then it might be good time to start following me for faster news and new products.

If you haven't heard the buzz, I've added some new shirts on my store site. From now until the end of March (March 31, 2011) everything in the Nanamation Store will be on sale. The new shirts will also be on sale. Yup everything!  It is a pre-show sale with show prices.

Here are some new prints that I finished in time for my upcoming shows.  Unfortunately these are not available through the site yet.

Disater in Japan

I can't find the words to write on what has happened in Japan. News has become really hard to watch these days. My husband and I decided to donate funds to the Japanese Cultural and Community Center of Northern California.  Our friends were donating to JCCCNC and mentioned that one hundred percent of the donations will go directly towards citizen relief efforts in the most affected areas. However in the end it does not matter. Please just donate to your charity of choice. Thanks.

Pig Chart Freebie

I love charts. They make me feel organized and it is a good way to educate someone.  I recently just finished a Chinese Zodiac Chart and a while back I did a sushi chart.

To add to my list of charts, I finished a pork chart. Ohh yeah...mmmm..bacon. I am sure there are ton of pig charts out there but I had to do a pig chart.

This one is a freebie so you can download a pretty high res from here. It will be up for a while.

Nyotaimori is referred to as a "body sushi". In other words it is a body platter. I don't know if there are restaurants in San Francisco that practice nyotaimori but I heard there was one in Los Angeles. But I also heard it also shut down because of health issues. I wouldn't be surprised. Gross dude.

Anyways I was so fascinated about this and been watching too many Lady Gaga videos so I HAD to draw about it. I feel like it is half finished so I may come back to it later. Or I may not. It was just something I to illustrate.

Happy New Year Everyone!

Hope everyone had a great holiday and New Year. We sure did! From the end of November to all the way to the end of December I was busy with non-Nanamation stuff. Besides the holidays, we have a lot of December birthdays in my family. Now that the holidays are over, and with it being a New Year it's time to get back to work on Nanamation artwork. I hope to be doing a lot more artwork and shows this year. There are a few out of state ones I have in mind that I hope to get into as well. Last year was a slow year for me with baby, but now that he is a toddler hopefully things will be different.

To start off with here are a few quick poop comics I did. Poop always seem to get a bad rap, when it it's so natural. I guess it has been on my mind a lot since I have a baby I clean up after. Also I can't forget the dog. Yes I pick up the dog poop and those who own dogs had better, too. That really makes me mad when I see owners who don't pick up the dog poop or pretend that they are picking it up. You know who you are! Shame on you. Ok..maybe I did it a few times but I didn't have a poop bag.
