While I was on tumblr last weekend I came across the amazing artwork of Japanese woodblock (and watercolor!) artist Hiroshi Yoshida (1876-1950); the clarity, delicacy, and harmony of his colors—not to mention his faultless illustration and arresting layouts—are really breathtaking. Take a look! Although he worked in the traditional Japanese woodblock style, he also studied western oil painting, and had an exhibition of his work in the States (Detroit!) at the tender age of 23; he would continue to travel extensively throughout his career, and often used the Japanese woodblock techniques to illustrate non-Japanese subjects, which isn't something that had been seen much in the medium—plus he made plenty of gorgeous Japanese scenes as well!


Looks like my broadcasting equipment will be arriving earlier than expected—this weekend!—so if I can figure out how to get it working, I might even be able to stream the making of Monday's A* page live on the internet—on my Twitch channel, specifically.

There will be a lot of work left to do in terms of setting up my broadcast graphics and filling out the rest of my Twitch page, but I'm hoping to get at least a web widget set up for myself that will alert you with a light blue link to the live stream below the comic, between the "A*" logo and the main site menu—where the "Big A* Original Art Sale" link is at the moment—when the stream is on the air. If you have a Twitch account (they're free), you can follow my channel and set your preferences to have Twitch email you when I start broadcasting; and I've set my own Twitch settings to have a notice auto-posted to my Twitter when I start streaming, so you can keep an eye out over there, too.
