So, team Toshigawa has finally emerged from the convention tour we have been on for two weeks. While it was fun to hit Superman Celebration and Anime Blues Con in back to back weekends, it was also exhausting! We also made it out of the art whirlwind that was May and June that saw the release of Jetta: Beginnings from Action Lab Entertainment, Free Comic Book day, and our 2nd MAW Productions Drink N Draw. However, after the smoke cleared and the dust settled, we had two great convention experiences! Here’s a rundown of what you missed.
Superman Celebration was all about family for me and Janet as we took Anakin (our son not the Jedi/Sith) to his first real convention. Things where a little hectic juggling daddy duties and being available at the MAW Productions booth. But, in the end, things worked out well. So, since a picture is worth 1000 words, I got plenty of photos to show you guys.
Anime Blues Con 2012 was all about work, work, work. Some of you guys know that I’m also a convention head for the art track at ABC. What that means is, not only am I set up for the convention at the MAW Productions booth, but I am also responsible for artist alley, the art panels, and the artist guests of honor. It can be a lot of fun. But it is also very taxing. Here are a few photos from the weekend.
Thanks to everyone that came out to both Superman Celebration and Anime Blues Con! You guys are what we do this for and I look forward to meeting you all out there on the convention road! Next stop, Memphis Comics and Fantasy Convention.

h’lo, all! janet (aka saltygirl) here, hijacking toshigawa.com’s friday posting. just wanted to let ya’ll know about a new hobby i’ve foolishly gotten myself into: jewelry making! resin pendant jewelry, to be specific. now i’m not giving up my vector pinup art. in fact, i’m combining my vector images w/ jewelry form. you know, something for our female fans. i figured this was a great way to show off artwork. you can always hang art on your wall. why not wear art around your neck?
so here we have …(*drumroll*) the “Jetta/Turra” pendant. 1 in wide x 1.5 in high x 0.25 in thick. on 1 side Jetta strikes a fight pose; on the other her sword sister, Turra, poses w/ guns. & i’ve topped it off w/ an itty bitty Knave charm, 0.5 cm x 0.5 cm. i’m selling these bad girls as fast as i can make them for $20.00 a pop! we will be bringing these to cons, but if you just can’t stand to wait that long to get your hands on 1, you can send payment via paypal to email@example.com. just add $2.00 for shipping/handling.
hope you enjoy them. we’ll see you round the con circuit!
