See ya sucka's!

Jeannette Langmead Illustration Sketchblog

I drew this at work the other day.

See, I'm very very happy. On Friday (which coincidentally was my birthday) I received the news that a "database error" had caused me to receive a rejection letter in the mail one month ago. And actually, the Nova Group wants me to come work for them teaching in Japan.

It has taken me a few days to accept this new good fortune, and crawl out of the crippling depression the initial rejection caused, but now I'm feeling quite good. I even smiled on my drive to work yesterday. It was an evil smile, but a smile nonetheless.

Awesome. Also: more flames, please.

so. are you going? when?

Frederik Jurk said...

To Japan? What are you teaching there? The gap between japanese men who get sex and those who don´t is HUGE, because you have to work your ass off in Japan to not be considered a loser as a man. So, some virgins invented AIR SEX, the counterpart to air guitar.

The clips gets even better after the second half, and by better I mean creepier.
I guess I would collapse there after three days, although I would love to spend some cash in the always-smoky huge-ass video game arcades. Maybe you´ll even meet Pikachu!

Konichi-wa,

Your Fred-san

Well happy b-lated b-day. When you get settled in, be sure to indulge in the cool calligraphy products they have in Japan.

Frederik Jurk said...

OMG! Studio Ghibli museum? Make extra sure to go there, take some pics and make a great post of that.

Freddy, your Boston accent is coming along well.

Switchsky said...

This book is inspiring. I won a copy and considered sending it to you but...can't. quite. do. it.

Jeannette said...

That book does look cool. I want to do something a little like that. I have some ideas floating around.
