Chatty Lübecker

For some reason all the Lübeckers we came across were super friendly and very chatty...!

Do Re Mi

Moin from Lübeck!

G and I clearly grew up in different cultures so something this happens quite often...

He's back!

Uwe's back from Hamburg for the weekend!

Also, have I mentioned that Uwe is superduper talented? Apart from his main acting career, he's also a singer-songwriter. Check out his awesome tunes on his Soundcloud site, including a supersexy rendition of Britney's "Toxic" in addition to all his original tracks!

Trying something new. Inspired by the comic "Boku to issho" by Minoru Furuya, who draws like this.

It's like an extra life I don't even want . . . I die the second time anyway!

It's a what

We were in Schleswig-Holstein, a state in Northern Germany, for a weekend of fun with G's family. On the way to our destination, we passed by Itzehoe . . . and much fun was had.

Kino Klaymation

Harro harro! Sorry for the lack of updates this weekend; I was away with G's family in Northern Germany for the weekend and was hopelessly Internet-less. Will go back to updating as usual tomorrow, but for now, here's a little claymation video I made for school earlier this year!

Tarako doodles

For some reason I'm veeery sleepy today so I'm going to cheat and update some silly doodles I drew last week.

This drawing of G and me is inspired by this awesome Japanese commercial of a cod roe (tarako) spaghetti sauce from the company Kewpie.

Stern to Funny

I haven't been drawing my hair differently, but I actually got a perm (at my mom's urging...and by urging I mean she almost literally dragged me to the hair dresser's) while I was in Japan. This is what G's dad had to say about it.

Also: Although they're commonly used adjectives, I think the German nuance of streng and lustig is actually quite difficult to translate correctly. Anyone have a better translation?
