Scan of the day: Three clearfiles from prize machines in Japan combined to form one image. If you’re wondering why the coloring on the buildings and the edges of each file don’t quite match up, well, that’s because they were printed that way. Sorry!
Favorite Commercial Tie-In Artwork
There’s a lot of ridiculous Shingeki no Kyojin merchandise out there, but only a select few promotional campaigns create original artwork solely for the purpose of selling gum / pizza / a complete line of SnK-themed snack and stationary items / etc. Here are the four best pieces of commercial tie-in artwork so far.

Go there, and do as the instructions say.
When my art was stolen, I got the post reported, and it was taken down. Don’t worry, it doesn’t just take down the sources post, but it takes down all the reblogged posts too.
Please give this a reblog, many artists out there may not know this is here.
And remember, ask permission before sharing, or don’t post it.
If anyone is having a bad day, just spend 15 minutes and enjoy this guy’s wisdom after losing his wisdom teeth.
I guarantee you’ll be smiling by the end of it.
Anonymous asked: I know you probably print locally since you live in Taiwan at the moment (?) but I was wondering if you knew any good places to get comics/books printed, or any tips in general. Thanks so much!
Hi there! I’ve not used any of these printers personally but these are resources I have on hand:
- Printer Resources for Independent Art Publishers
a list of printers recommended by artist book publishers, compiled by Ooga Booga
- Ka-Blam is not on that list but is also a popular printer for many independent art publishers/comic artists
This is a copy-and-paste from a previous ask I answered:
If you’re looking into making artbooks/comics/doujinshis self-publishing is a great place to start! The girls over at LoveLoveHill are very experienced self-publishers and have made a BUNCH of really great guides on getting started on making your own zines/books!
For your reference:
Planning Your Project
Presenation on doujin-making and self-publishing
Preparing Your Comic For Print
Bookbinding 101 - staplers!
Compiling Files in InDesign Pt2
Process - inks to print-ready!
Guide to risograph printing
What’s better? Greyscale or Bitmap?
How To Print Interior Pages
If any of these helped, let the LLH collective know! They’re the most helpful and supportive group of/for self publishers I know :)
I hope this helps!!!
Chino Otsuka : Imagine Finding Me
Chino Otsuka uses photography and video to explore the fluid relationship between the memory, time and photography. At age 10 she moved from Japan to the United Kingdom to attend school. Her experience of becoming familiar with a new place, a different language and new customs while she was developing her adolescent identity has profoundly shaped her work in photography, video and writing. Her series Imagine Finding Me consists of double self-portraits, with images of her present self beside her past self in various places she has visited. As Otsuka says: “The digital process becomes a tool, almost like a time machine, as I’m embarking on the journey to where I once belonged and at the same time becoming a tourist in my own history.” - via AGO
I am unexpectedly weepy looking at this.
gosh that’s… moving in a really gentle kind of “mother your inner child” way…
It’s so good that I ALMOST SCROLLED PAST IT because I assumed they were just regular pictures
