I'll Give It My All Tomorrow

I'm reading this great graphic novel by Shunjo Aono that my pals Andy and Veronica gave me....
Shizuo is fortysomething and out-of-work. After some inner soul searching, he realizes that his calling in life is to be a manga artist, despite having no formal artistic training or prior drawing experience. The book is about how he struggles with the creative process and with learning to draw in the midst of a disapproving father and friends who mock his aspirations. I haven't finished it yet... it's so good, I'm trying to not gobble it up in one sitting, as I often do with a great read! 


Nifty gifties from A&V's Japan trip!...
Is that Barbapapa merch I see??...why YES!!! (yay!)
