Adventure Time #54 out today

Hello!

I have so many fun updates to share very soon - not the least of which is that my wonderful husband and I are buying our first house - WOO!  After years of renting we are getting a sweet little farm house with a yard and a dog.  (We really miss our old dog, Allie Oop, but that's a story for another day)

ANYWAY - lots of things shifting, work is crazy and buying a house has it's own set of hurdles we weren't expecting.



I did this cover for Adventure Time when we were living with my in-laws in Japan, and we had just gone to the Tokugawa Art Museum in town where I was very inspired by the collection.

I was particularly taken with this piece Shirahone Onsen, Shinshu by Kasamatsu Shiro (1935)



 新種の白骨温泉 笠松白 
(正しいかどうかさっぱり知らない)

And used it as the skeleton for the cover.

Man, I'd sure like to visit that place: [LINK]

It was very cool that my sister-in-law was a big fan of the show, and she told me it's very big in Japan among both teens and adults.
