Yoskay Yamamoto Watches Terada

This is what Yoskay Yamamoto looked like for a while. Terada was drawing out of frame. Even though the background is brighter, it's cool to see that you can still see Terada's framed pieces in the background. I also like seeing Yoskay's eye just below the arms of his glasses.

Katsuya Terada

Terada stands proud in front of his two drawings. I suppose I would too. They took numerous days to complete. I think the best thing about it was the fact that on his last public drawing day, he said that he was having a hard time but had no choice to work through it. It's the first time I heard him say he was having problems drawing. He actually didn't finish that day, but easily finished on January 1st.

Kika the Cat

Kika is short for Kikaida and is the cat I got from a cat and dog adoption at GR2. She likes going on top of the fridge and enjoys demolishing almost everything in her path.

It turns out Kika was perched on top of the fridge.  I like the fact that I can see her eye with that tiny bit of shine.

Ellie in the Yard

Ellie is relatively low energy for a young dog and I like how you can't easily see her eyes in this frame. She's also decently placed in the photo standing in a haphazard garden. The cool thing is that she doesn't care as much about aesthetics.

Here's Packaged Ramen From Japan

Ramen from a package isn't what you think when it comes from Japan. I hate to admit that I can't read most of what's written on the label, but that's not important. What is important is the fact that the noodles aren't freeze dried, it comes with pork and menma, the soup has chunks of fat that you have to push out of the bag, and there's actually a green onion for you to chop. This is how it should be and it's complete and nearly perfect.  But here's the part that makes it: the soft boiled egg that blends so well with the soup base. It's the special touch that I've been figuring out. So far the best timing is...
