“Depicting women in chains was ubiquitous in suffrage cartoons from the 1910s, in which women sought to be emancipated by gaining the right to vote.

…Wonder Woman is bound in almost every one of her adventures, usually in chains. The bondage in Wonder Woman comics raised hackles with [publisher Max] Gaines’s editorial advisory board, but [Wonder Woman co-creator William Moulton] Marston insisted that Wonder Woman had to be chained or tied so that she could free herself — and, symbolically, emancipate herself.

—From “The Secret History of Wonder Woman” by Jill Lepore

Can we please do away with the notion that bondage in 1940s Wonder Woman comics is nothing more than her creator’s sexual kink?

PHANTOM OF THE OPERA #24 Book and Frames

Hi everyone! That’s about it with PotO I’m going to upload on tumblr:) I will upload a separate post with a link to my portfolio page for the full project. Since this was done in school for 2016 Spring Graduation Show, the designs on my website is all I have for this project. There is a very little chance that this book will be sold, I might bring it to CTN if anyone is interested giving a peek into it! There is a higher chance that me and Grace might be selling ‘Higher than the Sky(Monkey King)’ at CTN this year:D Let’s hope that happens! 

Thank you everyone who commented and sent me messages of love for this project. I have learned so much through this! Special thanks to my instructors Richard Keyes, Will Weston, Bill Perkins, Paul Rogers, Lou Police, my friends and family for guiding me in this project.

Osomatsu-san singing headcannons!

Osomatsu: he’s probably never tried to sing. He’s more of a rap/pop type person and he’d rather dance than sing, which is probably a good thing because he’s a tone-deaf idiot that likes to shout.

Karamatsu: he probably has the widest vocal range of the brothers and he definitely practices the most, so he’s bound to be the best singer. His one shortcoming is that he can’t do the growly rock-n-roll voice, so he tries to avoid songs that show this weakness.

Choromatsu: this is the guy who whisper-sings everything because he’s afraid of embarrassing himself. Secretly, he actually has a really good (probably alto-range) singing voice, but not even he knows that since he’s never tried it out.

Ichimatsu: he’s the type to speak-sing like Lou Reed or Roger Waters. He’d try to hit notes but he’s absolutely tone-deaf. Lyrics are more important to him than carrying a tune, anyway.

Jyushimatsu: the Angus Young screamer. His singing voice would literally be semi-controlled yelling. Please never give him a microphone unless you want him to blow out your eardrums.

Todomatsu: the worst singing voice of the brothers. He has no vocal range and always tries to sing in a higher octave than he’s capable of. His voice is super thin and forced. He’d never sing in front of people, but he’s a total shower rockstar.

Original Drama ~Part 1~
Ryosuke, Kuramochi, Haruichi

In which Ryo-san wants to borrow a book from the the library.

Ryosuke: Huh, Kuramochi?
Kuramochi: Oh, Ryo-san!
Ryosuke: It’s rare to see you in the library.
Kuramochi: It doesn’t suit me, huh. Can’t help it, got an English homework so I came to borrow a novel.
Ryosuke: Oh, Rei-chan’s class.
Kuramochi: Anything’s okay, just read an English novel, then summarize it in 3 pages. ‘Told her it’s impossible but she still tells us to do it! Do they even have English books here?
Ryosuke: English Literature are that way, it should be under “Foreign Literature.” The ones translated into Japanese are… things like Alice in the Wonderland, or children’s literature… Or I think short story collections might be easy, too. Maybe someone’s already done an assignment with them and translated them or left notes inside.
Kuramochi: Ohh, you really know this stuff, huh.
Ryosuke: That’s because I’m a regular here.
Kuramochi: Ohh, that’s why you’re in the library.
Ryosuke: Today’s afternoon period is going to be self-study, so I thought I’d borrow a book and read it in class.
Kuramochi: Oooh. What kind do you read?
Ryosuke: I wanted to borrow Mizuki Shigeru’s or Itou Junji’s mystery manga, but the library doesn’t have them… So I thought the library would have Lovecraft, Clive Barker, or Stephen King because they’re pretty major.
Kuramochi: Uhh, who are those? Are they great people? Uhh, people like Edison or Hellen Keller, or Lou Thesz?
Ryosuke: They’re novelists. And that last one isn’t a 'great person’, was he?
Kuramochi: No, Lou Thesz is a great person! And Karl Gotch too! (*)
Ryosuke: Both of them are the same.
Kuramochi: You’re pretty strict.
Ryosuke: Look, you know this Rosemary’s Baby? They made it into a movie too.
Kuramochi: No…
Ryosuke: You should at least read this kind of book.
Kuramochi: I read too! Stuff like wrestling and boxing magazines.
Ryosuke: Those aren’t books. Oh well. Just borrow whatever you’re interested in? Ah, it’s here…
Kuramochi: Oh, the one you said, Love-something’s book right?
Ryosuke: Lovecraft. It’s written on the book bind, isn’t it.
Kuramochi: You’re right. H.P. Lovecraft’s complete works. H.P…? Is it a book about a battle of strength?
Ryosuke: Howard Phillip Lovecraft. It’s just his name. Well, I’ve read until volume 2, so… Hm?
Kuramochi: Volume 3 isn’t here, huh. Maybe someone borrowed it?
Ryosuke: And here I thought I would read it today…
Haruichi: Huh? Aniki? Ah, Kuramochi-senpai, too.
Ryosuke: Oh, Haruichi.
Kuramochi: Are you borrowing a book too, Otouto-kun?
Haruichi: Yes! I borrowed one just now.
Kuramochi: Uhh, is it a mystery book?
Haruichi: Oh… You sure know well.
Kuramochi: As expected, these brothers are similar, huh.
Ryosuke: Just now you thought that we’re similar, didn’t you?
Kuramochi: Ah, no, no! How sharp…
Ryosuke: Haruichi, what did you borrow?
Haruichi: Eh? Ah, this? The third volume of Lovecraft’s Complete Works.
Ryosuke: …Why did you borrow that?
Haruichi: Why…? Because I want to read it.
Ryosuke: I was planning to borrow that.
Haruichi: Huh? You were? But even if you say that, it’s not like you wrote your name on it or anything…
Ryosuke: There’s my name on the card in the second volume, right?
Haruichi: Maybe it is, but it’s been a while, hasn’t it? Lately, the only one who’s been reading this series is me.
Ryosuke: I want to read it now.
Haruichi: I want to read it now too.
Kuramochi: Both of you, calm down.
Ryosuke: Kuramochi.
Kuramochi: Yes.
Ryosuke: Haruichi, you’re my younger brother right?
Haruichi: This and that are two different things.
Ryosuke: Then I’m a senior, you’re my junior.
Haruichi: This is outside the club!
Kuramochi: Oh man, so this is how they have a sibling fight…
Haruichi: Aniki, I will not give up.
Ryosuke: (Laughs)
Haruichi: What?
Ryosuke: Haruichi, you really get stubborn over the weirdest things.
Haruichi: Stubborn…
Ryosuke: It’s okay, you can borrow it. These are separate works, there’s no problem even if I skip to volume 4.
Haruichi: Aniki… Thank you!
Kuramochi: Hyaha! Ryo-san has his kind side too, after all.
Ryosuke: But in return…
Haruichi: In return?
Ryosuke: I’ll borrow volumes 5, 6, and 7 too and won’t be returning them for a while.
Haruichi: Don’t do that!
Ryosuke: Why are you so upset?
Haruichi: I want to read the continuation!
Ryosuke: I can’t read the continuation either.
Haruichi: Then just borrow this first. But return it quickly!
Ryosuke: Hmm? Why is your face red?
Haruichi: It’s not!
Ryosuke: Your face turns red when you’re upset, that’s never changed huh.
Haruichi: It’s fine, isn’t it!
Ryosuke: I’m just joking. It’s okay, I’ll read another book.
Haruichi: Uhh!
Kuramochi: Ryo-san is really kind but he’s not honest huh~
Ryosuke: Kuramochi.
Kuramochi: Yeah?
Ryosuke: Just now, you thought, Ryo-san is kind but he’s not honest, right?
Kuramochi: Eeh!?
Ryosuke: If you don’t borrow a book soon, lunch time will be over.
Kuramochi: Oh, crap! Rei-chan’s homework!
Ryosuke: Don’t run in the library!
Kuramochi: Ah, roger!

*Note: Lou Thesz and Karl Gotch were professional wrestlers.

Hi Max, it’s me. Sorry to interrupt, I know you’re probably up there playing baseball with your Dad. Um, look, I’ve got a situation here. I think that I’ve been holding myself back from falling in love again… and I think it’s because I can’t let you go. But you’re not here anymore, so… I have to ask this: Would it be okay if I moved on?

Don't you think it's odd that Dylan loved baseball so much?? Because he hated jocks and guys that played sports and stuff.... I never would have guessed he would be a fan of sports

Dylan grew up on Baseball since he was a child and was in Little League. In the ninth grade, Dylan tried out for the Baseball team at Columbine and failed to make the team. He was greatly disappointment but  also, right about at this point in time, he started to get a sense of what the exclusive school culture was like at Columbine. After he was rejected from being part of the team for the only sport he loved with a passion; he’d begun to acquire a sense of resentment for the athletic elite at Columbine because he was not the school’s “type” for sports and didn’t have the acceptable physique to fit in or the desirable skill set.  We shouldn’t forget that though Dylan hated the jocks part of the reason why he resented them was because he was jealous of them since they seemed to be having a better time at life - from his own secret point of view within his journal.  When Dylan failed to make the team, this sort of set the tone in giving him an impression that he was going to have a tough time fitting into the school culture.  When he was child and in the gifted program he was taught that anything was possible, the sky was the limit for his abilities and his passions but in high school, his failure to fit in where he hoped to, gave him the message that his potential was limited by the favored crowd at school. He was rejected from the sort of physical activity that he loved and so he threw himself into computers and became known as the computer nerd and outcast loser.    

“Both of our sons played baseball from the time they were small; the sport was the common thread woven through their childhoods and adolescence. They  watched games on television, fought over the sports pages, and took turns going to baseball games with their father. Tom loved the game, and the three of them would spend summer nights playing catch in the backyard, or throwing balls through a plywood sheet Tom had customized for pitching practice.
Dylan’s walls were covered with posters of his baseball heroes: Lou Gehrig, Roger Clemens, Randy Johnson. One of our favorite movies was The Natural, which starred Robert Redford as a baseball prodigy. The boys watched it so often that they knew parts by heart. 

Baseball was not only a wholesome pastime for the boys; it was a shared love between Tom’s family and my own. One of my grandfathers had been asked to join a professional team as a young man (he declined: he didn’t want to leave his widowed mother), and both Tom’s father and his brother played amateur ball well into their adult years. I loved that our boys played this classic American sport, just as their grandfathers and great-grandfathers had before them. Both Dylan and Tom were devastated when Dylan, entering Columbine High School as a ninth grader, didn’t make the Columbine High School baseball team.

Byron’s smooth right-handed pitch kept him in the game until he grew tired of it. Dylan also pitched, but he was a lefty and fired the ball like a cannon, trying to strike the batter out. Throwing hard was his trademark, and he often sacrificed accuracy for speed. In time, his pitching style took its toll on his arm. The summer before Dylan went into eighth grade, Tom hired a coach to help both boys with their form. During one of their sessions, Dylan seemed to
be struggling. Suddenly, he stopped throwing altogether, his eyes downcast. Tom hurried over, worried he or the coach had pushed Dylan too hard. He saw Dylan’s eyes were filled with tears.

“My arm hurts too much to pitch,” Dylan told his dad.

Tom was shocked. Dylan had never mentioned any pain before, though we later learned it had been going on for months, worsening with each throw. It was typical of Dylan not to mention it: he’d been determined to overcome the problem by force of will. Tom took him to the doctor immediately. Dylan had a painful inflammation around the tendons of the elbow, and the doctor recommended he take a break from baseball. He stayed away until the following summer, when he began to practice for the Columbine High School baseball team tryouts.

Tom had also begun to experience serious joint pain. (Right around the time Dylan was entering high school, Tom was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, and would undergo surgeries on his knees and shoulders in the next few years.) His ability to help Dylan practice was limited as he could no longer throw a ball, so he hired the pitching coach to come back. As it turned out, Dylan’s arm was still sore. The day of the tryouts, the two of them made quite a
pair—Dylan favoring his elbow, and Tom’s knees hurting so badly he could barely walk out to the field. 

Given his injury, we greeted the news that Dylan hadn’t made the team with mixed emotions. Although disappointed he wouldn’t be participating in a sport in high school, neither Tom nor I wanted to push him into an activity that might cause him lasting physical damage. As a family, we tried to minimize the loss and move on. For his part, Dylan claimed he hadn’t liked some of
the kids on the team anyway.

His passion for the sport didn’t come to an end. He still followed professional baseball religiously, and went occasionally to games with his dad; in time, he’d join a fantasy baseball league. Not making the team was a much greater loss than we knew, though, as the focus of his attention shifted from baseball to computers.”
