I spent my B&N gift card online, which is cool because last year you had to use in-store gift cards in the store, and I spent mine on Britney Spears CDs because they didn't have anything else I liked in the store. But this year they're letting us use 'em online! W00t!
So, I ordered Cowboy Bebop Shooting Star #2
, and FLCL #2
. I'm totally in love with Cain Kuga's art style, but she's only done the two mangas, even according to amazon.co.jp. This userpic is from my sketch of a panel that cracked me up, so you can see how it's different, at least somewhat. Anyway, it looks cooler in the manga because it's inked and not just pencilled and gamma'd. I did the style justice, though, and the mood of the panel. (Course, it's not quite the mood for this post, but oh well, I'm trying to show art.)
Anyway, no one has heard of her and no one seems to give her any props, because the manga is "different" from the anime. Real different. Some people don't like their worlds shaken up, you know. I hope she does more in the future so she can get the respect she deserves. I added the only 2 other LJ users who listed her in their interests to my friends list. Props.
In other news, I deposited a very fat paycheck today, but it's on hold until it clears because I was overdrawn and I get overdrawn on a regular basis. So, I have moneys, but I can't use
the moneys. I'm not even overdrawn by very much. Oh well, it's my own fault for being overdrawn all the time. Guess those Bebop and FLCL DVDs will have to wait. (as well as the electric bill and the phone bill and the cable bill... ehehehe :D
I should be able to enroll in art school in March. I'll probably have to pay my own way, because I really dropped the ball last year with financial aid. But I don't even care if I can only take one class per quarter. I live to animate. I'm all :
