I have adopted a new pheleon Bleach plushie! My daughter has temporary custody of him at the moment. Ah Gin--I still miss you. The plush will help. It was getting to where I would get misty-eyed every time I passed those persimmon trees in my mom's neighborhood.

[livejournal.com profile] lady_leia_solo loooooook! Remember your prize-winning entry for the bleachness IchiIshi contest? [livejournal.com profile] la_kalaka drew a doujin for it! Here's the cover!  http://kala-k.deviantart.com/art/Back-to-Back-Cover-308944967

IchiIshi )

Been lazy updating re Bleach goodies--go wander over to http://deathberry.com/index.php for stuffs. I've been working in the yard in the terrible heat and am exhausted all the time. Maybe this week's chapter will get me all pumped up--nothing like impending doom to stir the soul. Looking forward to the destruction of Soul Society and all that spells for Bleach's Final Arc.

Poppy_moon was so gracious as to show me this scan this morning!  AHHHHH! Ishida looks so pretty in Sensei's new style and my IchiIshi fangirl is flailing over the cover. Also--check out the little Ishida who will appear in the new Colorful Bleach panels.

I got the loveliest care package from [livejournal.com profile] wtf_ms_bunny yesterday! I've been ill for a while (getting better now!) and it cheered me so up to get these amazing pheleon plushies in the mail along with some GORGEOUS doujinshi and POCKY. I swear I have the dearest friends.  I have two custom Ulquiorra plushies now and a Grimmjow! The little felt bonejaw is so damn cute. Can't wait to play with these (and read my doujin when the kids aren't around <.<)

goodies )

By the way, I've commissioned a new hair!vice-captain!Rukia from pheleon for my birthday and I'll be sure to post the pix when I get her near November. Stay tuned for details about the next bleachness contest. It will be IchiIshi this year. :fu

First, a belated birthday present from [livejournal.com profile] enychan  that warms my heart. She was going to save this to post on the weekend fanworks post but I couldn't wait to share it here ... BECAUSE I CAN. XD.  Behold my IshiHime present:

IshiHime EGA by *kala-k on deviantART

Also, the most marvelous plushie maker in the universe, http://pheleon.deviantart.com has completed two more Ishida and Orihime plush dolls commissioned by me  AND YESTERDAY THE POSTMAN BROUGHT THEM TO MY DOOR. They're my cutest Bleach plushies yet! Only 10 inches tall (like my lil Ulquiorra). I'm so in love. A picspam below the cut. Lots of images. SILLY.

warning for cuteness below cut )

OH! One more thing! [livejournal.com profile] mezzo_marinaio  sent me caaaaaaake all the way from Italy the other day and one of the cool things she does is illustrate her letters to me. These IshiHime drawings were too precious not to share.

You guys know how I feel about pheleon. I hug a lot of her creations to bed every night. I forgot to show you these the other day. Ulquiorra and Orihime in Tanabata yukata: http://pheleon.deviantart.com/art/Tanabata-180664798

So adorable. I love how she did Hime's hair. Commissions are closed right now but she's got some Bleach creations coming up.

Oh and send out good vibes for my little daughter. She goes in for bloodwork again today--and for more vaccinations. She's going to be so full of holes, but she's going to get a lot of candy out of this. XD

Oh happy day happy day. The amazing amazing pheleon (who has now opened slots for fall commissions) has completed three adorable plushies for me, and I can't wait to pose them in dramatic scenarios in my garden! Ulquiorra will definitely be hanging from a flower tree with his wire-bendy tail!

Some interesting stats from Annie. I'd heard from Mel and other Japanese readers that Volume 32, Howling, the one with the Grimmjow and Ichigo fight, was doing poorly by measure of reader star ratings at Japan's amazon.com. Apparently, the tankoubon sold poorly too:

Let me show you some random info regarding 2008's Top Selling Manga. I will just post of Bleach tankoubon ranks and their sell then. Here is the link in case you want a confirmation that I didn't made it up.

12. Bleach #34 (ch 296- 305: Captains show up) sold 874,153 copies

17. Bleach #33 (ch 287- 295: NnoiNel flashback and fight) sold 802,692 copies

18. Bleach #35 (ch 307-315: Ken vs Nnoi and Aizen entered the real world) sold 761,802 copies

35. Bleach #32 (ch 279-286 Ichigo vs GJ )only sold 519,631 copies

And right now Vol 36 (turn back the pendulum) has sold at least 751,547 (and this is the record from its second week released).

Why did the Grimmjow Fight Bomb? )

Look, Szayel's been courting trouble around my house again!


Oh and I colored an IchiRuki pic by the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] darkcountessb HERE.

Guys, I'll get that yuri story and yaoi story to you before long but first I need to get them to my trusty beta [livejournal.com profile] vayshti and one of these lifetimes, I swear I'll finish that fic I promised [livejournal.com profile] jaina for her last birthday.

Thank you everyone for your amazing kindnesses of the holiday season. I loved all your cards and packages and today I'm framing fanart in my study! Your fandom love has really helped in what has been a tough year for me and my family. Oh Rachel! I got your package just yesterday! Thank you for making me earrings! I hadn't worn any in so long but I promptly put them on because you said they were for good luck in the New Year and I forgot to take them off--I had a strange feeling when I woke up, a sensation of deja vu, a familiar pressure between my cheek and pillow--AH! Remember the days, deb, when you used to come home from the bars and fall asleep on the sofa with your long dangly earrings on? It was a reassurring feeling, a feeling like "oh today I can sleep in." And I can! It's New Year's! Everyone was up last night listening to the firecrackers pop and now is dead asleep and I have the house (and computer) to myself for a while! Sweet freedom! Maybe I'll finish my Ukitake story, my ChizuHime... or maybe I'll just draw Ishida.

Happy New Year to all. Maybe all your hopes turn into happy realities.

Merry Christmas and I just have to share this very special image with you. This holiday Master Plushie Maker Pheleon gifted [livejournal.com profile] xshelaghx with a tiny six inch Ulquiorra plushie and looky, here he is all dressed up for the holiday!

isn't this the cutest Espada you ever saw? )

The talk session for the Ichigo and Rukia Bleach Beat is available now, thanks to Turtie at BA. Here it is.


I hear this IchiRuki Bleach Beat is SOLD OUT in Japan. Like, sold out.  And FTB continues to rake in the yen at the box office. Merry Christmas to Shishou and all his good elves!

LookingBack7, also known as [livejournal.com profile] r0ck3tsci3ntist here on Live Journal, has the most distinctive Bleach fanart style. It's sexy, textured, full of feeling. It's so ART fanart. She draws the creepiest Ulquiorras and is known for her somber UlquiHimes in a fandom where there's a lot of roses, romance and kawai. She drew an Shinji/Hiyori/record player piece for me once that I swear has been the inspiration behind each and every one of my fanfics since. This latest portrait she's done of Chad, Ichigo, and Orihime is just--wow. Orihime is so tiny, her hands clasped with Ichigo's, and Chad is this pillar of a good guy. The whole picture feels like love and friendship.

LB7'S awesome Bleach Arts )

Her Deviant Art gallery is here. You can find more of her work at y!gallery but you have to have an account there to see the work, which is largely yaoi-themed and largely for mature audiences.

That's all. I just wanted to make an entry to thank you, LB7, for your really different and wonderful Bleach fanart.  Next week, I hope to have my Ishida and Orihime plushies by Pheleon to show off !  I can't believe she's tacking Ishida's new spirit bow--wow. But a plushie maker who can do a released Szayel can do anything!

So jonesing for manga that for a few minutes I was taken in by a very poor pastiche of a fakey spoiler page that showed Grimmjow arriving on the the scene of the Ulquiorra and Ichigo fight. Damn. That would've been cool. Fake spoilers are fun, though. Do they annoy you? I see them as a form of fanfic/fan culture. They're good for thrills when they're well-done and good for laughs when they're bad.

Oh, I'm getting prizes for the next bleachness contest!

I will love Spacecat for five lifetimes and more! )

A couple Bleach drawings I did while my tablet was broken and I was able to steal colored pencils from my seven year old:

I want to hump your leg A Komamura drawing for Kaya's happy birthday

DEBBIE'S TABLET BROKE My first drawing. I just think this one is funny.

And the wonderful Pheleon is no longer taking commissions or exchanges (her last project will be an Ishida and an Orihime for me! I can't wait to show them to you) but get a load of her recent posable THE Grimmjow Jeagerjaques

Some of her plushies are still for sale, though so you can contact her about those.

Maybe it's a good thing Phel is taking a break from plushies--I was actually thinking of commissioning her to make a Kubo Tite plushie. *blush*
