i'm getting overly excited

I met Josh Brolin yesterday and didn’t even realize it. 

Deadpool 2 is filming in town, and he and his wife stopped by the bookstore to peruse some fiction. The extent of my interaction was “Yes, you can bring those downstairs and browse on the main level, I’ll let them know that you’re on your way” (which is something that I say about 20 times a day, to every customer who wants to bring books down to the ground level).

Ten minutes later, my manager calls up on the phone and says, “You do realize that the man you just sent down was Josh Brolin?”


“Josh Brolin.”

“Okay. I still don’t know who that is.”

The Goonies, No Country for Old Men, Milk, he was in Avengers: Age of Ultron–”


“He played Thanos.”

“That’s probably why I don’t know who he is. Hard to tell who someone is when they’re half CGI.”




Someone was asking for a comparison of Hotakainens eating sweets, so…here you go. ^_^

(I also did one of Tuuri, but since it’s from the bonus comic that comes with buying the book, I feel weird about posting it. Trust me, she also enjoys the sweets.)


Preview of some Episode 01 (completely out of order and non-spoiler-y) thumbnails. As of today episode01 has completed thumbnail/rough boards. I am excited to keep going with the project, mainly because I get to not only storyboard, but also cram as much silly scifi/robotics stuff that I would love to see into the world of AOI. (That and have a character like David Hodges or Bones as the main character…). I won’t show much more of the first ep since spoilers and production is going to ramp up big time. :O
