Takei Takeo “Kodomo no Kuni”
One hot summer’s day ある暑（あつ）い夏の日、
a fox was strolling through an orchard till キツネが果樹園（か じゅ えん）をうろついていると、
he came to a bunch of grapes. ぶどうのところにたどり着（つ）きました。
Drawing back a few paces, 何歩（なん ほ）か退（しりぞ）き、
he took a run and a jump, 助走（じょ そう）をつけて、ジャンプ！
and just missed the bunch でもその房（ふさ）を取れませんでした。
At last he had to give it up, and とうとうキツネはあきらめて、
walked away with his nose in the air, saying: そこから去りながら偉（えら）ぶって言いました：
“I am sure they are sour.” 「どうせ酸（す）っぱいんだろ。」
for the past month or so i’ve been drawing a dog-cow-deer species using desserts as their design theme. i have made far too god damn many of them and i might make them adoptables…. this is strawberry cheesecake!!

the Hellboy: The Right Hand of Doom trade
Amazing illustrations by Tatsuyuki Tanaka. I came across his work in a book called Cannabis Works. All I know about him is that he has worked in animation - notably Akira. There doesn’t seem to be much of his art out there besides Cannabis Works and even that seems to be out of print. I would love to see more of his work if anyone has any links.
Putting the finishing touches on the last of these fuzzy buddies inked by Numbersstation — I’ll have postcard and poster prints of all three at San Diego Comic-con this week — drop by the Sofawolf table (#1236) and check them out!
