Journal
JohnSu goes to AX 2013
Hey guys, sorry I took so long! This year I'm going to try something a little different and not Flash-dependent. I wasn't really sure how much I was gaining by making the pages squiggly and separated by animated transitions, so without further adieu, here's my report on this year's Anime Expo, now with alt-text! (hover mouse on image for commentary)
My biggest regret this year was being too busy and not getting around the artist alley more and visiting people and panels. Thanks to everyone who visited, and sorry to everyone who I didn't visit (or visited only very briefly)! I feel really rude in retrospect. I also feel like I didn't really get to see much of what AX had to offer this year by confining myself to my table for most of it.
Next year I hope to have some sort of book-type product at my table, but knowing myself, I will probably either give up or miss deadlines again and you'll see a repeat of the first two images in the report.
MAN, I sure got tired of drawing myself.

Activity


A terrible thing happened in the University District early on New Years day. Miles Murphy, a UW student, was killed by police in what ultimately amounted to a misunderstanding. He had always been quite fascinated with the ways and styles of yesteryear, and as such, had a few vintage outfits and uniforms ranging from the 1920s to the '50s.

For New Years, he and a few friends had dressed up in some WWII era uniforms (he had been very careful to make sure any uniform he bought never had any swastika signage on it). They celebrated the New Year with both alcohol, and by firing off a few blanks in a vintage rifle that he had. Neighbors heard shots (the blanks being fired off) and called 911. The police quickly arrived and confronted him and his friends. He had the rifle in his hands when they arrived.

He didn't react to police commands for him drop the rifle, and instead lowered, then raised it again, and took a step forward (he had been drinking). That is when the police opened fire on him.

---

The strange part about all of this is that there is no clear place to put the blame. There have been people saying that when someone brandishes a rifle, it's expected for the police to open fire. Yes, that is the policy they have in place. Yes, it was stupid that he had combined alcohol and guns. Nonetheless, this is the utmost tragedy.

I was hardly an acquaintance of him; for the most part I had only spoken to him during the 2006 Saint Lucia festival, at which he played the piano. Whenever I passed by him on campus, I always thought to myself "That's the type of person the world needs." He always struck me as the type to think things through before speaking, and one that does not automatically accept the most popular of anything simply because doing so would be convenient. It seems he was reviving a lost art, or rather, a lost lifestyle. He will be greatly missed.
