Geek Art: Amazing Gender Bending Series by Sakimi chan


Sakimi-chan is, as you may remember, the artist who made the brilliant covers for the first two of my Year of the Dragon books (http://jamescalbraith.com/books/gallery/).
So I’m glad to see she’s finally getting proper recognition worldwide now, mostly because of this piece she did on “Gender-bended Disney Characters”, which seems to have gone viral overnight.

Make sure to visit the galleries of my other, equally brilliant, cover artists: Sulev Daekazu and Collette J. Ellis.

Kyoto December


A Different Green

So now we know it. There is no time of year in which Kyoto doesn’t look stunning. Even in the middle of a snow-less, tepid winter, when all the other cities in moderate climates don a grey, torrid coat of slush and bone-soaking drizzle, she just takes another lovely dress out of its infinite wardrobe – one of eye-watering bright azure sky and evergreen leaves, and tops it with its best hat yet, a lavish pyramid of citrus fruits and camellia flowers.

Sometimes it powders it all with a smattering of snowflakes, but not too much; she’s all about understatement, after all.
