I still need your help!!

Once again, just a reminder that the deadline for "Planet Eigo" art submissions is May 27th (next week). If you have prepared anything it would be great if you could start sending it in soon.

Here are some specific requests for worksheet illustrations:

- Aboriginal Australians – anything Australian-y would be good
- Mexico art – Sombrero, beaches, tacos, chilies, dancing, soccer, pyramids
- An illustration of Martin Luther King
- An illustration for the idiom, "She was all ears while the teacher was talking."
- 2 six-panel comic strips (3 x 2), each comic containing 1 or 2 empty speech balloons.

Let me know if you want to tackle any of these. It would be a great help!
Otherwise anything that can be thrown down to jazz up a page of text would be great.

Keep in mind:

- This is an educational book aimed towards teachers.
- It is a book of lessons for teaching 'English as a Foreign Language.'
- It's for teaching levels ranging from elementary to high school.
- Inside content is black and white (with tone).
- Deadline is May 27th.

Please send me anything you can and I'll love you forever
Remember that all contributing artist will have your name and website printed in the book so please send me that information as well!!

Email submissions or questions to acgalaga@gmail.com

Thanks so much!!

Haven't posted anything in a while or even been on this site.  Need to get back into that habit. Have been taking a little break from art to learn Japanese and calligraphy.

Some of you may know that I am in the USA.  This is a little dated, but here are a few observations of my travel from Osaka, Japan to Philadelphia, USA.

Upon entering the terminal at the airport, it is shocking being able to overhear everyone's conversations in English.

Once at the airport (in Osaka, especially in Tokyo), if you're white, no one will speak to you in Japanese nor will they understand your Japanese.

On the airplane, why do people want that nozzle blowing that dry air in their faces?

In flight meal; I asked for the soba and she didn't understand me. I was then forced to say "noodles."

I was also forced to eat my soba with a fork! It was so bizarre having to twist my soba up like spaghetti.

In America, at the security checkpoints, homeland security mus treat EVERYONE as a potential enemy. Different feeling from the security of other countries where you feel like they want to help you instead. I'm sure this kind of mentality really wears on the minds of the security guards and their perception of people.

Once in America, during my layover in LA, my ticket that was printed in Tokyo was a little different than it was supposed to be(?). At the boarding gate in LA, the man who checked the tickets reaction was a wonderful greeting back to the US. He repeatedly said, "Stupid fucking idiots!" because they don't use those tickets anymore. I told him the ticket was printed in a different country. "They're still fucking idiots! They should have known better." There wasn't any problem scanning the ticket. It actually worked perfectly. Americans... *sigh*

Finally back to Philadelphia...

They lost my luggage.

Other news:

First print of GenkiFace issue 4 is GONE!  Need to print some more. If you want a copy, you should know where to e-mail me in order to get your name on a 2nd printing.

Heading back to Japan in 2 days (actually less, now). Gonna have to go through the above BS all over again! Happiness and joy all around!
