✦ ⚡ ✦ SEE YOU THERE, BUDDING SPACE YOUTH CADETS ✦ ⚡ ✦
the opening reception for my first solo show is this coming Friday at the Gladstone Hotel!
i’ll be there!! you should come too! :>
it’s the official debut of the Space Youth Cadets!
//_WE WERE THE SPACE YOUTH CADETS ☺
this is a collection of facts and images
of a budding brigade
that grew up too fast
chasing the impossible edge of the expanding universe
left in cosmic loneliness
until the void
became too immense
and they coalesced into its infinity
they did exist
and this is my proof
i’m starting to update this.
⦿ keep yer eyes peeled ⦿
volume 1 page 70
( original page here )
you can really tell that the first three panels i pretty much redrew exactly like the original.
i’ve never drawn buildings before or those angles, so i had a hard time figuring out how i would draw it my own way.
i loosened up a lot with the last two panels though!! THEY WERE TONS OF FUN. especially the fourth. it’s my favourite line. i’m gonna try harder to redraw the pages my own way, rather than trying to draw exactly like Matsumoto does.
(Brian Fukushima’s three onionduck boys make a cameo in the last panel!)
MMKAY SO I DIDN’T WANT TO OFFICIALLY ANNOUNCE THIS UNTIL I ACTUALLY HAD SOMETHING NEW UP BUT!!!!!!!
my newest project is redrawing pages from Taiyo Matsumoto’s TEKKONKINKREET.
it’s my favourite manga/animation/pieceofwork/everythinganythingever and i’m really excited to learn about comics and drawing and STUFF by doing this.
if enough people are interested and want to do the same, i’ll open up the submissions option or something!! let’s grow 2gether!!!!!
also, if you guys are interested in drawing pages from different comics, consider submitting stuff to Sloane’s tumblr for redraws, called OTHER PEOPLE’S PAGES YEAH!!
started a new project over at 9646CATS for redraws of Taiyo Matsumoto’s TEKKONKINKREET!!
LEARNIN HOW2 COMICS
also a small blogspot post about it over yonder
i’d reallyreally infinitely appreciate it if you at least leave my name when you reblog my art!

individual images from the gif i posed last night
i made a texty post over on blogspot
(complete with images you’ve probably seen before! and a list of things the SYB uniform consists of) where i talk a bit about my plans for a mahou shounen/space combat project!
abloclira asked: Hi! your work is amazing but i have a question, the draws of "Cosmic Bodies" are hand drawed or digital illustration :0!!?
ahh thank you so much!!!
they’re hand drawn, and i painted them with watercolours (apart from the very first image with the title and my name/face)! afterwards i scanned them in and boosted the colours with the help of Photoshop! :D
✦✦✦ Cosmic ✧ Bodies ✦✦✦
the images here aren’t laid out the same way they were in the show!
i went according to how they’re numbered in the listed format. so the first image here is Supernova, then Colliding Spiral Galaxies, Butterfly Nebula, etc.
i was a butt and only just finished updating the Illustration part of my website with new work ( IT’S BEEN OVER A YEAR ). the thesis work i showed at the GradEx this past weekend is all up!
ALSOALSO i have a small mention/feature on two sites alongside a lot of incredible artists and designers i admire!
i’m gonna be spending the bulk of summer revamping my website. i need to replace all the handdrawn elements because i don’t even draw like that anymore. 3:
gonna add a bigcartel store AHHHhhhhhh we’ll see how that goes.
ALSO A QUESTION:
do you guys think i should separate Illustrations from Drawings? or maybe have the Illustration section divided up into Paintings / Drawings? or do you mind scrolling down to infinity to see all the images in the Illustration section?
new work new work!
HELLO EVERYONE check out the OCADU Illustration site!
all the thesis work from this year’s grads are now up (including mine) ! c:
if you’re in Toronto this week/weekend VISIT US and you can see these pieces IN PERSON WOW!!
