Postby Lobster Johnson » Wed Oct 28, 2015 10:39 +0000

I've been wanting to make a thread in this section of the forum for a while now, and now I've finally figured out how to post images (and it only took me 6 months!). :oops:
Here is the only piece of Stan Sakai art that I have:

Nice piece!

By the way, I recall you mentionned having some pages from Lobster Johnson, are they visible somewhere? (CAF maybe?)

Sometimes the forum software goes a bit funny... that attachment IS meant to be rotated 90 degrees heh. Silly software.

I'm not on CAF, but there are pictures of both pages in this thread: http://usagiyojimbo.com/forum3/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=7599.

As a Christmas gift from my parents, I received this wonderful Usagi pencil sketch:

Included with it was one of the beautiful Dark Horse holiday cards (with a santa hat-wearing Usagi signature inside :D ):

And here's the head-sketch inside my recently obtained UY Saga vol. 2 hardcover:

(Sorry about the first two images being sideways. I'm not sure how to fix that.)

A big thank you to my parents, as well as to Sensei Sakai and Daniel Fujii!

I will hopefully have something else to add soon, depending on whether it's available or not. Hopefully! :)

I actually got socks, too... :roll:
I'm hoping to add the Witcher pencil sketch (http://stansakai.com/product/witcher-pencil-sketch/) from Stan's website to my collection, but I'm not sure if it's available or not. I submitted a contact form and asked, though, so hopefully I'll know within the next couple days. I know very little about the Witcher, but I really like the drawing. It reminds me of Yokai, one of my favorite stories.

Great peices LJ ! If you have any money left from the Holidays maybe you can win this auction on ebay. I think it would make a great addition to your collection and is reasonably priced (for now).

Best Wishes,

Excellent gift from your parents! How did they know what to get you? Are they UY fans too? :lol:

Thanks for pointing that out! I had no idea that was on eBay. I hope the price stays relatively low...
If so, I might bid.

They're not Usagi fans, but I do ramble on about Usagi to pretty much everyone I know... :roll: I am loaning my dad some of my Hellboy books, so once he's done with those I'll give him some Usagi books to read.
