  1. Ah, you linked to Nina Matsumoto! (I feel like I may have fangirled about her on your blog before? But now I’m not sure. Whatever.) I’ve been a big fan of hers since I was in high school and she was doing her old comic Saturnalia. (I even commissioned a drawing from her for my friend’s birthday once!) Anyway, ahhhhh I’m glad she’s continuing to be cool and thoughtful.

    • I had never actually heard of her before! I only wound up on her blog because my original source for those Athletes photos had been shut down. But her work is awesome and I will definitely be checking in on her! (Her Simpsons/Death Note poster, omg.)
