Ohhh... it's about time we got more amazing Himiko fanart because in the art world she is SO UNLOVED T.T I really love the colors. The ...



I've only been here a week, but it feels like so much longer. I feel like I should say something about it... but where do I start?

Well, I learned tonight that I can effectively communicate with taxi drivers, so that's a start. Also, whenever I do stuff with my American friends, sightseeing, shopping, and so on, I'm pretty much the only one who knows where to go (good sense of direction + good sense of general layout of Kyoto), what to say, etc. and so I'm starting to feel like a tour guide... except I've never been here before. It's kinda fun, though. XD

The language school is great. After a week it's getting easier to keep up with my teachers talking in Japanese all the time. They're pretty fun (there are three who rotate irregularly every few days). Today's sensei was kind of odd... very funny and energetic, but he had a balloon inflater toy that he would use to pump balloons and threatened to shoot them at students if they didn't answer a question quickly enough. (He never actually shot any.) It was very bizarre.

I'll say more eventually, but it's kind of late. For photos and more, please visit my blog!

SarurunKamui's Profile Picture
Modo fac.
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
United States

I was an exchange student in Japan for a month and a half in summer 2010, and now I really want to explore the rest of Asia... and the world. What does it have to offer? What can I offer? One of my life goals (aside from seeing Japan in every season) is to teach Americans about other cultures... many of us just don't seem to get that there's a whole other world out there, not just outside the country but outside of your house or car, and that it deserves respect. I also believe that peace is achieved through understanding. If we understand each other, we can avoid conflict. I think studying abroad is an important and incredible experience and I wish it were more widely available. To live life in another culture, not just to look at it. It does a lot for understanding them--and oneself...
The world is getting smaller, so we might as well get to know our neighbors.

As an artist, I'm almost entirely self taught. I took classes throughout high school... I learned a lot in photography, but the other classes I ended up ignoring to the best of my ability. I'm best at doing what I want to do. (I got a 6 on the IB art test anyway...) I've been drawing since before I could remember, as evidenced by a piece my mom kept from when I was two--she says it's a dragon, but it looks like an awkward rainbow-shaped unicorn demon. Obviously I've figured a few things out since then.

I played Okami HD on my friend's console, and I have to say its pulling me back to reading those rarely-told, perhaps better, inspiration of Okami lore.

but I wish there is a complete source of Ainu mythology like how Issun came from Issunboshi tale; by chance, have you ever find it yourself?… 'Okikurme' has been requested for an article.

Dead rat stench? Do you have dead rats around??

Incense is lovely, though. I wish it weren't banned at my school. XD Fire hazard and all.
