I need to clear some space off my shelves (and a little cash). I don’t know if these will interest anyone, but I have two sets of old manga/graphic novels/comics (1995-2002) that I’m hoping to part with. Please note these are the Chinese editions of Japanese manga. Both are incomplete sets by only a couple of volumes. Tensai Family Company is only missing 9-11, and Omizu no Hanamichi only 12-15. So it would not be hard to complete them. I’ve seen these listed in used condition from $10-$15 each. For bigger photos and more info, please see the individual listings in my shop. Prices may be negotiable. **Shipping price includes insurance and tracking. Any questions, send me an e-mail (windowfog *at* gmail.com).Tensai Family Company / 天才ファミリーカンパニー / 天才家庭 vols. 1-8 $48By Ninomiya Tomoko, the same mangaka who made Nodame Cantabile. All volumes are in very good to excellent condition. All of their dust jackets are intact (one or two may have a very minor rip in the back). However, since some of these are from 1995, the pages are starting to yellow (see lower photo). Text: Traditional Chinese. Publisher: Tong Li (Taiwanese license through Sony) 1995-2000. Genre: Comedy/Family. US Shipping: $15.Omizu no Hanamichi / お水の花道 / 酒國名花 vols. 1-11 $66This manga was written by Kidoguchi Shizuka and illustrated by Rika. Like the previous title, this was also serialized into a jdrama. All volumes are in very good to excellent condition. Pages are still their natural color. Text: Traditional Chinese. Publisher: Tong Li (Taiwanese license through Kodansha) 1998-2002. Genre: Josei/Romance. US Shipping: $15.—Shop: windowfog.etsy.comFb: facebook.com/windowfogTwitter: twitter.com/windowfog

the photo seems a bit more yellow still then the original painting but you get the gist.  18x24 acrylic on canvas.  Its the “first” of the figurative finger-painting series, although it’s actually the second to be made.  I haven’t nailed down the title yet but it will probably be something like “It’s harder to hide(disappear?) the more you try” but possibly shorter then that, right now it’s just green for short as each in the series has a different main color.

step 3(ish)  ink! here’s where I’m most likely to go overboard, I really love inking so sometimes I feel the need to make every line that could possibly be there or texture too much, so the trick tends to be knowing when to stop for me.  With these two I’m also experimenting with stretched paper on hardboard, if you ever want to do that be sure to partially erase the pencil before soaking it because it won’t erase after.

Figure drawing!

Yesterday I went to my first real life figure drawing session at the Woodstock Artist Association & Museum, it wasn’t really a class as there wasn’t a teacher but still helpful.  Basically it ran similarly to the online class with short 1 minute poses, the 3, 5, 10, and 20-30 minute ones.   Eventually we might do longer poses but not for the first day, I guess I’ll bring some inks and watercolors in case we do or just use pastels.  Most of the other artists were older women who already knew each other to some extent generally using charcoals and being much more interested in light/dark areas compared to me just doing line work, I got to peek at some of their sketches and a few seemed really good I wish I could have seen what everyone was up to though.  Overall it was fun and useful although anxiety provoking, new people and all, and I was sitting in the middle of the table so there were a poses that the model seemed to be staring right at me which is a bit distracting.  She seems to be really nice though and is an excellent model; she has great muscle control so she stays incredibly still.  Anyway I’m looking forward to the next sessions, there are only going to be three more but that’s still some good amount of practice time.  One of the women next to me asked “how did you get so good?”  I just rambled about practicing online a few months ago and having taken drawing in college, she then didn’t believe I was out of college.  Oh and there were some workmen doing something or other and the other artists joked that they could only work during our class if they were naked as we needed a male model anyway, so there’s that…
