I'm not on DeviantART much anymore (who is, though, right?) but I thought I'd say hi.
I was about to come off hiatus... my kid was supposed to start daycare next week (hurray!) and I have my own studio space now, but of course we're all going through a pandemic, so who knows what will happen. I'm pretty upset about this, since I had really been looking forward to going back to working on FaLLEN, but it is what it is. Japan has not been hit as hard as other places, especially my area, but that may only be a matter of a time before we're all on lockdown. I just got back from the US and I've cancelled any plans to do conventions for the rest of the year, at least any that involve heavy traveling. We'll see where the virus takes us, right?
Stay safe! Wash your hands! Don't lick your neighbors!

Livestreaming Art on Twitch!
About to finish up an illustration I started last weekend. If you want to join me, I will be adding shadows and other touch ups as I watch Blue Brothers. Also, holy hell. This is the first time I've tried to make a journal entry on the new dA and it's such a hot mess... http://twitch.tv/ogawaburukku
Oh, Birthday Wishes!
Oh man! I feel like a jerk. I had my version of dA set to the new Eclipse setting and wow, I completely missed all of your birthday wishes until today when I switched it back. Just wanted to say thanks to everyone who wished me well. Even though it was over a month ago :p
2019 Convention Schedule, Website
Some of you may have noticed I've been arting again. Huzzah! It feels good to be working. My kid finally goes to bed at a decent time in her own room and it leaves my evenings free to work on my projects. I've been working on FaLLEN as well but I'm so rusty it's been slow going. I am currently in the US and will be selling and guesting at a few conventions this month. FaLLEN vol. 1 and 2 will be available as well as quite a bit of FaLLEN merchandise. I didn't update my prints catalogue for fan art unfortunately, but I think I will have quite a few new additions next time I do this. For now, here is my schedule: Anime Midwest Date: July 5-7
New Year, New Projects
Been a while since I updated, so hi, guys! How has your 2019 been so far? My kid is now a 1 year old toddler hurricane, so just when I thought I couldn't be any busier, something crazy happened. A big publisher showed interest in my work! I thought I was done with Japanese publishers and fully independent, but here I am working on two short stories for a magazine I won't name unless it all works out. You never know you will be in the magazine until you are in the magazine, as I've learned from having an editor in the past, so while I'm not celebrating, I am pretty busy. One short story is already into production and features a character some
It is quite sad you aren´t here anymore that often, but after what all happened, it is understandable.
Yeah, we are living at crazy times at the moment, and it doesn't look like it will get any better in the near future.
I hope you and your family will stay safe through this and you get through this.
We will see us on the other side
Yeah, I know what you mean.
At the moment it looks like every community is cleaning itself - some more extreme than others - I just hope somewhere in the future this will bring back some of the fun a lot of us had in the beginning.
