Whoa, nice! I like the customized bags. :mrgreen:

Where did you manage to get the stuffed Usagi? I'd be interested in picking one up if there are more available.

All items were purchased online through the Stan Sakai Shop. I think the doll was the last one. Basically I ordered everything just to get the Golden Apple Usagi Card.

Looks like Maka can add the Usagi plush to his Usagi Yojimbo 15th anniversary art trivia list. Unless that isn't a tag.

You are right! Good eyes, Gaffey!

Maichan, congrats on your golden apple card. I was tempted to order stuff to get it too. But I survived the temptation. :lol:

The canvas bags are awesome! Congrats on your sketches on them too. The key is to use them with things that don't leak or spill. :)

Peace, maka

Yes, it is a tag. Here's a better look at it...

Thanks to Kyle, who brought this print to our attention right here on the Dojo (via eBay), I now have a new piece added to my gallery... (all the way from Ireland)...

It could have been one of the set that Fantagraphics found while running its Kickstarter a few years back. I'd already gotten this print by then, but if I hadn't, I would have pledged on the KS to get it.

Jabba picked this up at SDCC for me. Stan embellished on my request for a quick sketch... :D

And a few other Usagi things...

Nice. :)

Heck, nice is an understatement. It's an excellent piece. (and the rest) Funny how naturally Usagi and Totoro seem to go together.
