Ken Tanaka is Beautiful

Miwa Yokoyama is known in Hokkaido and all over Japan as being famous for Street Make. She does make up for people on the street. During her tour of the US she stopped at Royal-T maid cafe in Los Angeles, and I finally got a chance to be beautiful.

And last week, I posted this video of Remi and I at Comic Con, featuring some of the best and cutest Cosplay costumes that we saw at the con.

I had a great time at the con, and afterwards, Fangoria magazine did a review of my book Everybody Dies- A Children's Book for Grown Ups. You can check the book out at the website Http://

My trip to Comic Con

I was at Comic Con from Friday to Sunday and I met many nice people. In this video I meet some voice over actors who work in games and anime (Naruto, Bleach, Yu-Gi-Oh! ) as well as the director and producer of the Cartoon Network's Metalocalypse.

I'll have a few more Comic Con videos coming soon with artists and cosplayers and the very handsome Remi February.

Here is my most popular Comic Con video from an earlier convention.

Letters from a Super Hero. Atomic Atom Episode 1

(For some reason the above video player cuts off 1/3 of the screen...double click the video to see it on youtube in full.)

Atomic Atom is based on this drawing I did called "Letters From a Super Hero".

He is real, but I didn't know he was real until after I made the drawing. He is a very good neighborhood hero. This morning I saw him refilling a hummingbird feeder.

If you have a problem, contact Atomic Atom. He might be able to help, but I think he has a bad back.

He can't do heavy lifting, or anything that requires him to bend in a funny position.

What kind of super hero are you?

I went to the American store Target today to meet Santa Claus. He was very friendly and handsome, with a large belly. I got to sit on his lap and tell him what I wanted for Christmas. He had a plastic sheet over his lap that he said was to protect him from germs. I was a little nervous. I asked for two things,
1. To find Jonathan and Linda Smith
2. That I can become a superhero.

I know that it is kind of a big wish to be a superhero, but I don't need to be an extravagant superhero. I will be happy to just be a normal, ordinary superhero, who goes about his business but in a very super way. If I can choose, I would be Waiting Man. He has the super power of great patience. He doesn't get angry, even when he is stuck in the wrong line at the supermarket. He just waits, happily, knowing that it is his duty.

If I can't become a super hero, I would like to wish for a comic artist who can draw a comic of The exciting adventures of waiting man. It will inspire the young people of the world to enjoy waiting. They are going to have to do it a lot anway
