I might have been around 10 yrs old, about the time I started getting the x-men comics with my older brother, when I got this amazing (and apparently very rare) Rogue poster.  From what I can find it was one of a pair, Rogue and Gambit, pencil art by Joe Quesada, inks by Joe Rubinstein and colored (?) by John Stracuzzi.

This poster hung on my bedroom door/walls for years as a kid and has gotten pretty badly beaten up. I couldn’t bear to throw it away even in its tattered condition and I have kept it all these years - it has literally has moved across the world (New York to Australia).

The photo is of it today hanging next to my desk - trying to straighten it out after being rolled up so long. This poster introduced me to Art Nouveau and the works of Alphonse Mucha. It was the start of my ongoing appreciation of art history.

So here is my tribute to those artist. Thank you for inspiring me and for all that I have learned from you.

The Parks And Recreation finale will pay tribute to Harris Wittels

Among his many comedic accomplishments, one of late comedian Harris Wittels’ most high-profile gigs was serving as executive producer on Parks And Recreation. (He also wrote several key episodes and played Harris The Animal Control Guy on the show.) And considering the Parks And Rec crew’s reputation as one big happy, huggy family is well established, it’s no surprise—but still quite nice—that the show is planning a special tribute to Wittels at the end of its series finale. Described by Deadline as “a We Love You, Harris message” from the cast and crew, the tribute should bring the Parks And Rec finale to heretofore unimaginable levels of emotion. Be sure to have tissues ready when the hourlong series finale of Parks And Recreation airs on NBC tomorrow night.

UPDATE: Parks And Recreation co-creator Michael Schur—a.k.a. Ken Tremendous—is also encouraging fans to donate money to Wittels’ alma mater, The High School for the Performing and Visual Arts in Houston, Texas, in his honor.

Last November was published the last chapter of Naruto, my all time favorite manga.

I can’t really express what I felt and what I still feel today, but it’s mostly happiness.
This manga never disappointed me, I loved the characters and really got attached to them and their stories.

I’ve always felt close to Naruto for many reasons and today I am grateful I discovered this great manga.

I grew up with Naruto, he’s my hero.

So thank you Masashi Kishimoto, thank you for giving us Naruto :)
