The Gallery of Maka

Postby Maka » Tue Jun 26, 2007 7:28 +0000

Hello UY Dojo,

Update: I've see all my links stopped working. Sorry for the poor quality of images.

I bought from Stan at the Holiday Bazaar (in my neck of the woods - Monterey Park, I believe - though my memory is questionable). From SDCC Souvenir Book 2004.
Image

I recently got this from Stan (2014). It is my most precious piece of art. Unused page from Usagi Yojimbo: Senso #6.
Image

This was on the back of the Senso piece. But I am going to have the front framed, so we will have to enjoy it here. :)

Peace,

maka

Those are AWESOME! I love the death of Gen. Was that a con purchase?
...and the coloured piece is gorgeous - how did you come to have that one? Tell us the stories!

The SDCC UY 20th anniversary (I like your title: The Dealth of Gen :) ) piece was picked up at a 2004 signing in Monterey Park (California).

When I said, "I'll buy this one" Mr. Sakai said, "Really?" As if he was surprized a fan would pay that much for a piece.

I had him sign a couple of hardcovers to my daughter. I got back in line and asked him to sign the original art. Mr. Sakai joked, "You're keeping this one, hun?"

That's right!

I love that it's personalized to me on the bottom. Ah, such a fanboy. :)

I bought the color one on eBay using BIN. It's an interesting size. I really like the colors. Usagi seems to pop out. It's very fun.

Edit 2014: I donated the color piece to CAPS for their eBay auction to raise money for the Sakai's medical bills.

Peace, maka

UY #100 poster framed

Postby Maka » Mon Oct 22, 2007 19:53 +0000

Hello UY Fans,

The local art story had a 50% off when you buy three custom frames. So I just got the #100 issue poster framed and matted:

Image

I'm going to put it up in my office at work.

The other two aren't UY but they are Japanese. They are woodblock prints I bought two years ago in Japan:

Peace,

those are just beautiful Maka. I particularly love the rain scene. The cats are awesome too but the muted colours and the weather aspect really pull me in.

I agree with Morna. That rain print is particularly nice. It really speaks of Japan.

I haven't had a chance to get my Usagi and friends poster framed yet.
I was hoping to get it for my birthday but with my wife very ill, I will have to wait.

I think Maka's second piece is beautiful. You bought it on ebay? Who the hell would sell that?!?

I also think the rain print is amazing, it has a more modern look to it but it echoes the old style so well.

Very envious...

Totoro Yojimbo

Postby Maka » Thu Aug 26, 2010 18:56 +0000

A really nice surprise. Totoro is my favorite animated movie. Tototo + Usagi = Totoro Yojimbo = nothing is better!

Thanks Mr. Sakai!

Peace, maka

Dear UYDers,

I was planning to write a very nerdy blog post about the Senso art piece I got from Stan. But I haven't had the time (someday). So I took some pictures with my iPhone 4 and edit my first post in this thread. Enjoy.

Stan, thank you again for the Senso piece. I treasure it.

Peace, maka

PS. Looks like all my picture links in this thread are broken (I'll have to fix those sometime).

A really awesome piece of art! Stan said this piece was going to a "Friend" but he never mentioned him by name. I have to say, Stan has excellent taste in friends! :D
