This is the ending theme song to Gin no Saji/Silver Spoon, a really well-done show about the agricultural industry in Hokkaido, Japan. This song encapsulates the simple life the only way Japan can: with poppy guitar singin’. The video is terrible, but maybe I’m just jaded. It reminds of the hokey stop-motion parts in the Monkees TV show. Anyway, the song is really cute.
Updates from this week
The week started off kinda rough. Roy got some unexpected bad news that threw us for a loop, but we’re working things out and now things are looking promising. We spent a lot of time talking over how we want Culty to evolve, and I think we have a pretty viable game plan. I’m not making any formal announcements yet, but it looks like I’ll be spending a lot of time with Dark Souls over the next five months…
Ray of Light update
Monday night I sat down and drew out thumbnails for my latest comic in progress. For me, thumbnailing is the toughest part of doing comics because it requires you to make a lot of decisions, which can cause fatigue. I told myself I would just do 10 pages of thumbnails but ended up doing almost all of the script. I really fought it, though. I would draw a little bit and then check my phone. I normally NEVER do this, so I had to do a lot of mental fighting to get those pages worked out. Anyway, everything’s laid out for me to start pencils next week.
What else? I took a chance this week and submitted a pitch for a big project and got some good news back. It was the first time I wrote a pitch, and I felt pretty good about it after recounting all of my past projects this year. But I’m still sitting on top of a lot of things I can’t talk about yet, because they’re currently up in the air. (Was there even a point to this paragraph?)
Um. Have a good weekend!
