First of all, I'd like all of you to know that I am feeling MUCH better. It took well over a week to knock this flu down. Except for some remaining sniffles and a persistent cough, I think I've beat this cold. Thank you for all your well wishes, i read and appreciated all of them.
I also need to give a big thanks to Sarah (also know as 'seraphin') who was brave enough to take over and write the rant for Friday. Her review of Kero Kero Chime was... eye opening, to say the least. ^^;; I still maintain that it is a kids show, and that it is a girls comic, and that there is nothing racy at all in the show's content. Yes, Mimori does bounce around naked a little in the first episode, but the castle looks like three dried squid!! (tho, i do admit, it does look sorta phallic). Thanks sarahlove. :)
The other thing I need to do is get a fan / gift art section together. I really like the fact that people are encouraged and inspired to draw by our little comic. I really am.
It's amazing. You'd think that having three days off from work that I'd have drawn all sorts of stuff. Bleagh. It's amazing how much a bad flu like this will effect your ability to draw. Luckily the MT episodes this week came out OK - and largo was pretty much on his own for Friday's (i was so scared). I did this sketch during the week, but it really lacks something. It was very depressing...
Friday afternoon i felt amazingly better. Good enough to decide it was time to get a few things done. First thing I did was take one of my favorite drawings of Kimiko and color it. It didn't take as long as I thought it would, either. I hope to have nice color drawings of most of the cast by the end of the week.
Finally, largo and I made up our minds about what to do with the t-shirts. The Megatokyo Buy-stuff-or-Kimiko-will-cry store is officially open! T-shirts, mugs and mousepads are available for those of you wanting to bring a little l33t Megatokyo stuff home. As y'all know, we don't have any advertizing on the site, so this is the best way to support Megatokyo. Both largo and I thank you in advance for anything you pick up.
This brings me to something I've been thinking about for weeks now. One of the best things to me about Megatokyo isn't the comic or the art or largo's rampant drunkenness, its the community that's developed around it. Y'all are one really cool and nice bunch of people.
Of course, the only bad thing now is that Sarah has caught the flu from me. :( gomen ne, sarah-chan. She'll probably kill me when she gets better. ^^;;
