Off to Publish my Manga!

I finished redoing the first chapter of my Ronin Yoshino manga! These are contact sheets I had printed to see how they’d look. It’s going to be a 40 page chapter plus some extras. Now, off to publish it! Can’t wait to see it as paperback books! 😁

Ronin Yoshino 10th Anniversary!

This year is the 10th anniversary of my Ronin Yoshino manga (comic book) series!

image

I would like to thank my friends and fans for your support throughout the years. Special thank you to my wonderful parents, Aaron and Zoraida. I can’t thank everyone enough for your support, it means so much to me!

image

All 12 chapters from the 1st season.

My late mom, Zoraida Bros, had given me inspiration, encouragement, advice, helped me draw some poses and edited the script of Ronin Yoshino since the very beginning – from chapter 1 through chapter 12 (over 300 pages). This Revamped Extended Edition was the last chapter she had edited. I made a promise to her that I’ll continue Ronin Yoshino, because she loved it!

I’m redoing the first chapter to reflect my current art style. Revamped chapter 1 is completly redrawn and has been extended to 40 pages. The book will be packed with extras and will be released in May 2017.

Gem, Mineral and Fossil Show

Went to a Gem, Mineral and Fossil Show today in Johnson City, NY. I missed these so much! We used to go to these all the time back in Long Island. Mom would buy all of her findings there to create her beautiful jewelry. I bought some tumbled stones. Dad and I want to attempt to wire-wrap these to try and imitate moms style. Here’s what I got today!

image

Gemstones: labradorite, pink Botswana agate, red jasper, picture jasper, ocean jasper, snowflake obsidian, adventurine, jade, quartz, rose quartz, moss agate, hematite, amethyst, citrine, cats eye, silver tiger eye, unakite, blue lace agate, prehenite.

Custom Pet Figurine of Devlin the Labrador

This is a custom figurine I had made of Devlin the Labrador Retriever in my anime style. Handmade out of polymer clay, a wire was added for it to be hung as an ornament, baked, painted with acrylic paints and glazed for protection.

Happy Spring!

Happy Spring everyone! 🌸

Ronin Yoshino

Can’t wait for the earth to thaw, trees to turn green and for flowers to start blooming! I’m anxious to get started with planting organic vegetables, herbs and more wildflowers. No toxic Monsanto RoundUp or synthetic pesticides here! The honeybees and flutterflies love the wildflowers, dandelions and clovers. Soon the hummingbirds, bobolinks and orioles will return and the air will be filled with songbird melodies. 🙂

Beautiful giant dandelion flower! They’re amazing herbs! You can eat the leaves in a salad, the roots are medicinal, you can fry up the flowers and even make dandlion wine!
