Awesome questions from the lovely kitschisch!!
1. Out of all the cosplays you've done so far, which has been the most fun?
Oh wow, this is actually pretty hard. Jacuzzi is a ton of fun, because when people recognize me, they often go crazy and that's a great feeling. I get a lot of "D'AWWWWWW JACUZZI!!!!" too. Apollo is fun because he's such a dolt! I get to run around and act like I'm all that while doing really dumb things. Plus, I can store things in his shirt.
2. You work for VIZ still, right? Would you consider working for another publisher?
I do! I absolutely love Viz and my loyalties lie with them, but if I was offered a higher paying job with another publisher, especially if I had better job security with them, I would work for them. Actually, when talking to some editors at Comic Con, they seemed pretty surprised I only worked for Viz. My plate is pretty full with the series I have now, but when work was really slow, I was looking at getting some work from some other publishers.
3. Do you have any pets?
Yes I do! I have a beautiful cat named Dyson. He's a real scowler and very demanding. He'll sit in my lap while I work and go "MEH!! MEH!!" at me if I don't continuously pet him. What a spoiled boy!
He scowls constantly. So cute~
My parents have two cats which were sort of partially mine when I lived with them (I guess). They're siblings and named Loki and Gadget. My mom said that when we got them I would get to name one and my sister would get to name the other, but my sister and mom decided I wasn't worth it or something and named both of them. I am still bitter about my mom breaking her word to me, so I call him Loki out of spite. And because I think it fits him better than what the others call him... "Gizmo." (Don't get me wrong, Gizmo is a cute name, but he's a big boy now and it really doesn't fit him)
We've had a plethora of rabbits and we had two cats before Loki and Gadget. They were named Autumn and Summer. Summer was Autumn's daughter and my best friend. She disappeared my first year at college. I really miss her.
4. What's your favorite thing in your room?
UHHHHHHHHHH. UHHHHHHHH. Looking around, there are so many things that I love and hold great value, but I'd have to say it's probably Baby Bear. He's a stuffed animal I was given when I was born and he's always been there for me. With the way he sits, he's absolutely perfect for hugging too! Whenever I'm down, he helps cheer me up. =)
I love you, Baby Bear!
5. What anime/manga/video game character do you think is most like you?
Hmmm... I'm not totally sure, but I think I'm pretty similar to Lawrence from Spice and Wolf. Lawrence seems to play tough guy pretty often, but he's not really tough... he tries to show off his intelligence to get shown up by those around him. I feel like that a lot. I often pretend to be better than I actually am. On the upside, he does know how to do his job pretty well and has great drive and spirit. =)
I'm getting along with NaNoWriMo... I have 34 pages out of 50 done... but every page gets lazier and lazier! The comics I did years ago are better than this! Even if it sucks, I WILL get it all drawn by the end of the month! I'll put the text on in December and then PDF it up for anyone who is really, really bored and wants to read it.
If you squint hard, you can almost make out pages!
Happy Early Thanksgiving to those who celebrate it!!
