Japan was even more amazing this time around. Don was again the perfect guide and host. After busting ass in China for the better part of a week- it was great to kick back and chill with friends. The Tokiwa Hotel is our home away from home. We had McD's everyday- but the true feast was served up by Tets at the Boo restaurant. Dish after dish of great expertly prepared delicious entrees were devoured all night. Matt and I got to hang with our friends Ayako, Mori, Cord Viper, AAA, Itokin Park and Ai. We had a blast!

The Boo restaurant is attached to Ayako's Uamou store/studio. What a genius set up- Tets Boo themed restaurant on one side and the Uamou store on the other. Ayako is an amazing talent and super smart business lady. She has quite the operation! It is a truly amazing thing to experience- great food to chow and hundreds if not thousands of Uamou and Boo toys and art all over the place to check out! Ayako knows what she's doing.

Matt and I are very excited to be sharing a booth with Ayako at NYCC. She came a long way! Come check out her stuff at booth #578 if you're in town. We'll be kicking around all weekend.

1.339 billion + 2

I was let into China again this year despite my visa pic. I trimmed up the beard a bit as to look a little less homicidal. Paul generously hooked us up with palatial accommodations just a hop skip and a jump away from Glyos Central. We were quite a sight where ever we went- bearded giant and bearded dwarf... Treebeard and Gimli...

We spent our days in China working like pigs in the paint factory and our nights eating like pigs all over town. I am not sure if I could identify all of the different animals I ate- there was a lot- all delish. I gained 10 pounds.

It was great seeing the crew again. They do such amazing work on all of our crazy little projects. I was super happy to finally pull the trigger on the next Callgrim project. I am putting these guys through hell a bit- but if anyone can pull it off... these guys can.

I am still a fumble fuck with chopsticks.
