A New Generation of Pinup Girl!

A week of geek in Miami…

Intrawebz, I’m back!!

This blog entry cometh direct from cold ass Miami Beach. Yeah as much as I was looking forward to the sunshine and warmth… the only warmth is coming from a bottle of rum… and strippers… and great Cuban food. Ok, I’ll shut up now.

Well Mega*Con was alot of fun this weekend. The redeye flight into Orlando on the otherhand was not! But i toughed it out. Thank you iced lattes! Glad to see some of my peeps there… as well as some new faces! Lots of really cool costumes at the show too:

Where’s the Tea Party?


Can you say Double Deuce hot redheaded Pheoniz action? Yeah!


Silk Spectre! Rawk!


Glad he didn’t bust my finger!


Drunken monkey style?


Cutest cosplay eva!


I wanted to know what one carries in a Hello Kitty purse?! Katnips?!


If Chewie is here… then whose guarding the Falcon??!


They weren’t actually Feds, I was IDing them cuz they wanted some of my liquors!


COBRA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Carlye molesters Spicey! (his butt still hurts)


Spicy tries to escape but Chelsea puts him in the dreaded boob-lock!

Saturday night we got my drink on with some old friends, got to see belly dancing and try a new savory beverage! Redrum Rum!

There is absolutley no creepy finger curling or bleeding walls involved here. This stuff is fantastic! I would never betray my beloved Captain Morgan… but this is definatly top of my list! I heard there is a VooDoo and Jolly Roger variety… they must rule! If you haven’t tried it, do it! Today!

More exciting news on the art front, a couple of my pieces were chosen for the Seattle Erotic Art Festival:

The show is May 1-3rd at the Seattle Center Exhibition Hall. For more information check out SeattleErotic .org on your intrawebz. I’ve only heard great things about this show, so I’m uber proud to be part of it. Making the world sexy is hard work! hehe.

Other than that, just counting down the hours until Watchmen breaks into the theaters! I can’t wait! There will be glowing blue nekkid mens, guys in costumes, and of course Carla:


I know what ur thinking, that cop on the right is getting an eye full. Lucky bastard!

Okay u guys stay safe out there, eat your brocolli, keep the fucken cursing to a minimum and make sure to tell your mother you love her!

One love,

REDRUMs!!!

The Mega*Con / Watchmen Post

Hola Intrawebz,

I have to say that this week is gearing up to be exciting! First off, I’ll be attending Mega*Con again this weekend (SAT&SUN – Feb 28th- March 1st @ the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL). I will be sharing a table with Jedi Pinup Master Joe Pekar so hold on to your socks! Hell I might even bring Spicy McHaggis out with me to snap some pictures with da ladies. He’s a Pimp!

So I’ll have some prints for sale @ the show and will be taking commissions for as many as I can do without my hands curling up into gnarled claw-like appendages. I also will be auctioning off free drawing to anyone who makes a purchase. So make sure you take advatage of that!! And of course you are welcome to stop by the table to chat and oogle the girlie art.

Lesse, OH! I’m uber uber excited, next weekend: Watchmen!! I’m an old school comic guy, Watchmen was one of “those books” that was like mindblowing for the time. Alan Moore just nails it everytime IMHO. Its a really elaborate story to fully capture… not to mention all the characters and effects. I caught a good article CNN wrote about it online. But I’ve been satisfied with what bits and piece of the movie I’ve seen so far. I’m amped! PLUS (big plus here), I get to see my girl Carla Gugino as Silk Spectre!!!! :

I know, this isn’t her dressed up in her superhero garb but gaddam hot! Ok… FINE here she is in her superhero outfit… twist my rubber arm whydontcha! >_>

I dedicate Hump Day to you Carla! ^_^

Ok, kiddie, that’s all for now. I hope to have some photos and a full report of the shenanigans for you next Wednesday!

Peace, love and rum!

Carla call me. ^_^

Amano Survives New York City!

Hey Intrawebz!

I know you missed me.
Sometimes I just have to unplug and do terrestrial things. Well I’m finally
back to HQ safe and sound. Spicy didn’t burn the place down at all. Rumor has
it he was down in Tijuana all weekend long, go figure.


Times Square, Manhattan 2/6/2009

New York City was great! The comic book convention was a fantastic excuse to take a trip out there. It wouldn’t take much for me to live there that’s for sure. It gets very little sleep just like me, too! Got to do a little site seeing at night. Its amazing to me just how many people were out in Times Square so late at night! It wasn’t like back when I was growing up there… adult theaters, hookers, pimps with no style. Its a total tourist trap

..

Danger, giraffes!!!

Got the grand tour from my brother, who lives in the city. We hit the four story Toys R Us… yeah I don’t wanna grow up can u tell? haha. Man they had the coolest displays there:


Check out this cool web slinging Spidey!


Playmobiles on glowing stars!


Ginormous mechanical dinos!

Down the street there was even a whole store dedicated to M&Ms… I mean literally every color imaginable!

Rockefeller Center was a blast! No skating for me, but I busted a gut laughing at everyone who bit the biscuit on the ice! I is evil!

I am a huge architecture buff. So I spent more of my film snapping pictures of statues and building decore. This city is particularly amazing for it! Check out Atlas flexing his muscles… this one is for the ladies!


Even got to stop by Magnolias for some midnight cupcake nosh. Red velvet was crazy delicious!

Needless to say, I was still programmed to West Coast time so having to get up at 7am was painful. I was totally zombified throughout the con! bleh! I was super fortunate to have
the most beautiful and talented ladies keeping company at the table:


Fenny and Paigey!


Our table neighbors totally kicked ass too… Monte Moore and Karl Kerschl! Not only are these guys talented but they had a will of steel to put up with our drinking and non-sense. I think they at least deserve a medal for that! haha. Go check out their work btw, do eet… tell em Amano sent you!

I’m really glad I had my camera with me, it really fills in the gaps on these trips cuz they are such a blur sometimes! We had a lot of really cool costumes swing by the table this year:


I felt much safer with the Green Lanterns protecting out rums.


These ladies were totally rockin some smexy corsettes.


A very sexy Pheonix (thanks to my brother for the recon photography!)


This guy was just freakin hilarious… MUCH MUCH drunker than me!


A very VERY gangsta Poison Ivy, kudos to you grrl I don’t know if I could have braved the cold weather with only a few leaves to cover me naughty bits!

I have way more pictures to go thru. I will prolly be posting some up in my gallery. I had a outstanding time in New York! I heard the con is bumped to October 2010… you KNOW I’ll be there for it!

Thank you to everyone who came by my table… thank you for all your support! Looks like Mega*Con is only a few weeks away. I will definitley be looking forward to warmer climates!

Viva le pinup,

Ray’s Pizza you are still #1!
