PingMag interviews manga creator Jun Hanyunyuu.
At Tokyo Big Sight for the Interior Lifestyle show, which I’m covering for MoCo Loco.
Finishing off the weekend with a glass of MUJI red wine.
Out in Okutama today. What a beautiful day!
That’s right, comics, not manga. In all my years in Japan, this is the very first time I ever see someone take out an American comic to read on the train, in this case the latest issue of Warren Ellis’ THUNDERBOLTS. I did ask this guy permission before taking the shot, telling him I knew the writer and that he’d probably get a kick out of seeing this.
The fact that someone drew the kanji for meat on the cover of this free paper is unremarkable, but what if I tell you that they also drew it on almost every forehead of every picture inside! That’s dedication.
You just know I had to come on opening day!
