Hello, everyone!

I’d like to host a seperate blog carnival in January for 1-2 weeks about female goth mangaka, namely Mitsukazu Mihara, Kusumoto Maki, Junko Mizuno, Asumiko Nakamura & Fujiwara Kaoru. Kaori Yuki can also be counted as goth mangaka, but we’ve already had an MMF about her.
Please, anyone interested in contributing a piece let me know.

If you want to support the industry, here’s a…

Sorry, anon, but I can’t think of anything like this. There are definitely sketches/early versions of work out there if you Google around a bit, and Junko often posts work-in-progress updates to her Twitter. If anyone else knows of anything like what they’re requesting, please drop me a link and/or submit it.

Went to the Junko Mizuno exhibit with my friend at Gallery Nucleus. Here’s some of my favorites.

I especially liked the picture from July, the Japanese story of Tanabata.  My friends were also very curious of the story.  More can be read here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tanabata 

My version of the story always gets me in trouble, but it goes like this: A farmer saw a beautiful alien from the moon swimming in the river.  He stole her magical scarf (the scarf gave the alien powers to fly back to the moon).  The farmer took the alien captive, and succumbing to the Stockholm syndrome, falls in love with the farmer. The alien’s father finds out about the entire shenanigans and gives the farmer difficult trials to overcome.  He fails and the milky way river forms keeping the lovers apart.  The father took pity and figured out a way they can meet once a year on July 7th.
