And it's reasons such as this why this place is so great, and Stan is the nicest man in comics ;)

You are right, I am really happy and honored to have met Stan and shared some time with him. He is a so great man, artist and friend, a true gentleman, and ever so nice. He is a good fellow for travel and for restaurant too ! (and he has always funny stories to tell)
Even if i didn't meet a lot of people here, some has become true friends with time. Even my family knows my friends from the Usagi Yojimbo Dojo.

(You cannot see it well but there is a litho of Dr Seuss' Horton in the background )

Ikeda in my french GrassCutter edition, i asked Stan a Shogun Ikeda and he first said "Who ?" then he told me he didn't have drawn him for years.
Image
Ikeda is one of my favorite character

One of my fav piece, unfortunately the movie i took has been scratched, i was upset (since i lent my camera...)
Image
first big french edition are perfect for a signing


An ink i found in stone forest in Chengdu + a print of Franquin + my vine cellar

My bedroom :

Cover of UY #97 (normally in working room, but for the photo elsewhere, i will make redo the frame in my new frameshop) I adore it so much, thank you Stan.

I love the drawing with the frog swordsman in it. :lol:

Since both copies are signed, it should read: the inside of Glimpses of Death (numbered and un-numbered)

Also, I didn't realize that I had sent you a duplicate hc..... :?

I am afraid to be completely dyslexic...

I asked for a frog (i like so much "grenouille"), and i have been so surprised by the result, wonderful piece indeed.

It is cool to have 2 differents HC. I started HC at 20 (it is just i don't have the place to have all my collection at the same place and even right now i don't have anymore place for all my books, i started to drop out some...)

hey Steve, have you noticed that your xMas postcards have a good place :wink:

I sure did!

It reminded me that I did not keep one of the 2006 Christmas cards for myself. :oops:

When ever I decide to start adding more Polish and Spanish editions to my collection, I will definitely need to get more shelves.....
