Canti from FLCL, drawn in the style of Retro from Dead Leaves.
I used more plastic bags than usual when packing his lunches this week, and since we try and reuse bags whenever possible, I started labeling them to make life easier.
There was a third bag with a French-inspired doodle, but I forgot to take a picture of it, and the rest of the bags were boring.
(Cheeps = chips. We joke around with spelling when it comes to food, to the point that our grocery lists look like they are written in their own dialect.)
I'm going to keep going with this theme until at least the end of the month, so I hope y'all like anime as much as we do.
Here is Mamoru Kusanagi from Blue Seed, drawn in the style of Ai Mai Mi.
Getting back to our current theme of anime characters drawn in the style of other anime characters, here are Nyanko-sensei (Natsume Yuujinchou), Artemis (Sailor Moon), and Kyubey (Puella Magi Madoka Magica), all drawn in the style of Nichijou.
Recently my husband was promoted to an editor position at work. However, due to the complexity of his company's internal transition process, there ended up being quite a long span of time between when he interviewed for the job, when he was verbally notified of the promotion, when he was given a physical offer letter, and when he finally started in his new role.
To make the wait a bit more bearable, we decided to celebrate each of these milestones with either cake or a dinner out. For the interview, I made him a crudely drawn Mega Man themed "Mega Cake," and for the verbal notification I made him a frosted, candle-bedecked cake with a thematic, tongue-in-cheek note. Both of these cakes used ChaosLife's "wacky cake" recipe, my new favourite go-to chocolate cake batter.
A little follow-up to my Valentine's post...
Top left: I decorated our mini Christmas tree with heart ornaments, red yarn, and a paper heart topper that says "I Love You!" Displayed under it are the card I drew (which did not want to stay upright) and the little happy slime monster (they called it a raindrop) I bought for him from Shana Logic.
Top right: The back of the tree topper, with a ridiculous amount of exclamation points. We instituted a policy early on, both verbally and in print, that the more exclamation points we included, the stronger the sentiment; for instance we would say to each other "I love you with 9 exclamation points" if we wanted to be sappy.
Bottom: The lunch I made for him today with homemade onigiri and a Doraemon red bean pancake. We went to Mitsuwa Marketplace on the 14th to celebrate, where we found the serendipitously thematic pancakes, and picked up some hard-to-find edibles like the shiso leaves that I wrapped around his rice balls.
This is the Valentine's Day card I drew for my husband, featuring Inspector Zenigata and Lupin from Lupin III, drawn in the style of Doraemon.
Lupin III is one of our favourite series (we may or may not frequently break out into a duet of the theme song while bumbling around the house), and Doraemon was one of the only shows he watched during his stint in in Spain. He had requested that both series make an appearance before the conclusion of this theme, but I don't think he expected me to smash them together into one note. When he saw this card last night he almost fell over laughing.
Today we are hopefully going to celebrate by making a trip out to Mitsuwa Marketplace for delicious Japanese food, followed by a movie night (I'm leaning toward either Kingsman or C'est Si Bon).
Today I bring you a double feature of characters from Black Lagoon :
Levy is done in the style of a Pokémon trainer (rock-type, of course), and Rock is drawn in the style of everyone's favourite courtroom hero, Phoenix Wright.
Continuing our theme, here is Dr. Panji from Panda Z: The Robonimation, done in the style of Master Roshi from Dragon Ball Z.
I asked my husband for a theme because I ran out of inspiration. He asked for "anime characters drawn in the style of other anime characters."
Here is Asuka Langley Soryu from Neon Genesis Evangelion, drawn in the style of my favourite animator, Leiji Matsumoto (Space Pirate Captain Harlock, Space Battleship Yamato / Star Blazers, Galaxy Express 999, Queen Emeraldas...) I absolutely love his willowy 70's "sci-fi art nouveau" aesthetic.
My name is Shannon, and I draw silly things.
