Fables for Japan - Origins of the Flying Fish (preview)

Wow, it's been a long time since my last update! I don't know how I managed to gain more followers, but I'm glad to have you guys. :)

I thought I'd post a little sneak peak of the story I picked for a project called Fables for Japan. Many thanks to Matthew Funk, who provided the story I did art for as well as starting this project, and Jason Minor, who kept things going. I highly recommend buying this book! It's in digital format (for now) and runs for $4.95. You get 124 pages, 24 stories and art ranges from traditional storybook format to a comic book style. Every penny goes towards the Japan relief fund!

Even if you don't buy the book, I'm sure everyone on the project would appreciate it immensely if you spread the word and help us gain more publicity. Thank you all for your time and generosity! Stay safe, guys :)

Japan - Update

Just wanted to let you folks who expressed concern that my aunt called at the end of last week saying she's ok. Since then, my mom has had better luck calling Taiwan and Japan, thank goodness. I was ready to buy new phones for the house! My cousin is ok too, but I don't know any specifics on her. A friend from the states went back to work in Japan to help clean up and finish projects. I think she should've stayed in the US, but...well, I just hope she stays safe.

I'm working on a collaborative project for the Japan relief effort, so stay tuned!

Thanks again, everyone, for your well wishes and help!

Tsunami Aftermath in Japan

Dear friends, colleagues and random visitor,

Please, if any of you have some money to spare, donate to Red Cross or another charitable organization to help the relief effort of those hit hard by the tsunami.

I haven't been able to get in touch with my aunt, most likely because the phone lines are down and/or jammed with other people panicking and trying to contact loved ones and emergency crews. According to a relative in Taiwan, she's ok but my mom is going nuts not being able to hear from her personally. We're so in the dark and helpless, so this is the only other thing I can think of to do. Please donate, even if it's just $10. Hopefully, this will reach my aunt in some way and help speed up the process of re-establishing the phone lines so more of us on the outside can call in.

Also, if you have information on somebody in Japan, remember to post it with google's person finder or something similar: http://japan.person-finder.appspot.com/?lang=en
