me in manga

surprised to find myself in the latest manga by usamaru furuya: amane gymnasium – a story about a doll maker working towards an exhibition at “vagilla gallery” (vanilla gallery!) alongside “trevor black” (who can that be?) and nananano (by kenichi murata) – a double page spread of the trevor brown room with pastiche tb paintings featured (click to enlarge)

previously suehiro maruo included a drawing of my anatomy doll on the cover of the reissue of “ddt” – tb x sm

and a trevor brown book is featured in both the manga and anime of hunterxhunter – seems i’ve not blogged this before? – many times i hear “feitan reads trevor brown!”

sheidlina trevor cosplay continued…

i had barely posted my last blog entry before sheidlina sent a new tb inspired photo – she’s leaving me breathless – this image so strong i didn’t even recognise it as a “trevor cosplay” at first! – i thought maybe inspired by hajime kinoko – it took me by surprise because she hadn’t said she was doing it – my own painting was of course inspired by kinoko-san

(i think i’ll probably add any future sheidlina trecos to this post)

update 14 jan: “dead flower” by sheidlina / “shrinkwrapped” by me

update 23 jan: “buy my lollipops” – dress by magical ulala – lollipops by friendly sugar

sheidlina cosplay (…and some plaaastic)

sheidlina very quickly delivered on her promise – the first (of three?) “trecos” works now done – an amazing job too – i wonder how many of those who were commenting “i almost vomited” etc in regard to my work a day before are now obliviously clicking the “like” button on this? – tho one of the other tb images sheildlina is planning to do maybe will herald the return of disgust

“rubber duck” has amassed 263,988 likes as i write – i’m overwhelmed – feels surreal – i’m not at all accustomed to this being popular thing – i could grow to like it, haha! – tho, of course, it’s not me but sheidlina being “liked” – i’ve perhaps gained a thousand new russian followers – many, i imagine, will drop off when the heat-of-the-moment novelty wears off and i fail to follow back? – easy come easy go – i hope there are at least a few real new trevor brown fans amongst them

i have learned through this that plaaastic is a big fan – which i’m very happy about and again quite surprised by – i’ve followed her for a couple of years (or so?) – love her photos and she’s funny as fxck – similarities in the image below entirely coincidental (images she’s shown that were a bit inspired by me actually look less trevor-brown-ish)
