A New Generation of Pinup Girl!

Jet City Comic Show 2010!

Hey fellow art monkeys!

So I’ve got some exciting news, this weekend in Seattle is the Jet City Comic Show. Its one day only, September 25th at the Seattle Center! I’m excited because its a show showcasing the local talents we have here in the Pacific Northwest. YES! We have more than coffee, metal birds and crappy Operating Systems, lol. I’ll be heading up the pinup revolution… selling prints, signing boobs and drinking rum. I know life is tough. I’ll have an exclusive print for sale:

So drop by my table, get your own custom pinup girl drawing and more! Check out the amazing talent, the comics or just come get your nerd on!

As you all have heard by now, this is September is my last month licensing my artwork at CILM! It was a great run but its time for me to move on. Not to worry to my tagger followers Amano will be back with bigger and better things for you to play with, so STAY TUNED!!

That’s all for now, after Seattle… I’m off to New York City for the big NYCC October 8-10! I’ll be back this year with more shenanigans! ^_^

Peace&rum,

SDCC2010 Pinup Special this weekend only!

Greetings my fellow rum monkeys!

Where the hell is everyone??! OH! I see all my peeps are making tracks over to the big San Diego Comic Con! I love this show its truly the most epic gathering of all nerdkind on the west coast, I dare say North America! I’m sad to say that I won’t be there to bring my Amano-style drunken debauchery this year. Instead I’ll be working hard in my secret studio miles under sea level plugging away at a few items I want to have ready for the Jet City ComicCon and big New York City ComicCon a few months away.

I want to take this time to open up 5 spaces for what I like to call my “I wish I was at SDCC but didn’t have enough money for cab fare Pinup Special”… ok, how about we shorten it to “SDCC Pinup Special”? Perfect!

This special is up for grabs to the first 5 people to order or midnight on Sunday July 25th, 2010! You get an 11×14″ fully inked lineart drawing on Bristol and 11×17″ full color print of your completed illustration. All signed by yours truly! This special is for a single figure illustration only! No backgrounds or complex objects (I want to be able to accommodate the fab five in a timely fashion so I’m trying to keep it simple).  Shipping and Handling is free (cuz that’s how much I love you! lolz). Upon placing your order, please send a complete character description to me via email (amano @ amanojyaku.net). I will email you back to confirm your spot!

Redhead Appreciation Week = win!

Happy May intrawebz!

A few weeks ago, I found myself in possession of a red ink pen & pencil. Hmm, what could “I” do with such drawing implements?? The two gears left in my brain not permanently damaged by alcohol began to turn. They turned FAST! I needed something to spice up my TwitterSketches that I post on my twitter account!

Enter Redhead Appreciation Week! Seven days of sexy redheads! Yeah, I know genius… how can this fail? It can’t! The redhead revolution must continue!!

Again if you are not familiar with what I’m doing with my Twitter account, other than post mindless sexual perversions and food images, is posting quick 15minute sketches on any particular subject I fancy at the time. I tried to focus on characters I haven’t had the pleasure of drawing often or at all:

Black Widow sketch by Amano Jyaku
Monday: Black Widow – who doesn’t like a badass redhead decked out in skin tight black tights? I have to say I was influenced a bit by Iron Man 2. I have to say Scarlett didn’t disappoint… only that there needed to be more of her whooping ass! lol.
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
Medusa sketch by Amano Jyaku
Tuesday: Medusa – I can’t say I’ve ever drawn this Marvel redhead. I dunno why. I think I might revisit her later… do something uber sexy with the hair.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Christina Henricks sketch by Amano Jyaku
Wednesday: Joan Holloway – I caught wind of this show called Mad Men a while back. Its a show about some ad execs in the 50s… guys in suits, who draw&sell and drink and are surrounded by sexy curvy 1950s fashion clad women… oh yeah, that’s what Amano heaven is like!! lol That’s when Miss Holloway caught my attention. Watch the show, you’ll see what I mean. woot!

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Red Sonja sketch by Amano Jyaku
Thursday: Red Sonja – I love this character. Never quite understood why non of her comics took off. I really enjoyed seeing Frank Cho’s version. There needs to be more of her. Hear me comic guys? DO ET! haha.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Pheonix sketch by Amano Jyaku

Friday: Pheonix – I miss old comics! I especially miss the work of Alan Davis on Excalibur… such an epic series with amazing art!! The beauty of an artist like him is that he was able to draw everyone and anything! … and do it in an an exciting and amazing way! I envy that. This is my tribute to Rachel Summers aka Pheonix!

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Goblin Queen sketch by Amano Jyaku
Saturday: Madelyn Pryor aka The Goblin Queen – Another blast from the past! Another epic redhead from the pages of Uncanny X-Men… if you can imagine a sexy evil version of Jean Grey it would be Madelyn. She wore a black costume that pushes the boob limit of comic-dom! haha. Love this character… do want! lol.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Lucretia sketch by Amano Jyaku
Sunday: Lucretia from Spartacus – this might not mean anything to you if you haven’t seen the TV show Spartacus… but if you can imagine for a second, a 60 minute show set in ancient Italy starring a half nekkid Lucy Lawless with long flowing red hair getting it on with beefy Gladiators… that’s is Spartacus. OH! They will have you believe its about a slave overcoming his imprisonment and gaining the love of the masses by becoming the mightiest of gladiators. But I know better, lol.
