Mega Man Tribute Art Book Premier: Yoroshikudesu


Earlier this year I drew these two illustrations to celebrate Capcom’s own Mega Man’s birthday. Mega man too was born in 1987 the year of the Rabbit.

I am really happy that I could contribute as I have fond childhood memories of playing Rock Man or more so watching my brother play, as I never got that far.
When I showed this to my brother and his reaction was :
“….. that has nothing to do with Rock Man.”
M: “I didn’t draw Rock Man… but I drew Cut man!! and Roll and Rock Man is in the doily lace see?! … ”
Brother: “…”
M: “….”

I love you brother !!!

Also here is the second one. My take on Splash Woman the robotic mermaid songstress with helmet off. (As I have never seen her with out it )

Anyway enough from me and here is some infos :

-the book is premiering at the San Diego Comic-con at the UDON booth (#5037), July 20-24
-for fans not attending the show, you can preorder the book at ( )

– The standard softcover edition is also available for preorder on (

I can’t wait to see what’s inside myself 😀


2011 year of the Rabbit, Samurai Heart; Hope for Japan Sneaker design

Hello and hisashiburi,

I can’t believe it is already July. My last post was a Christmas post! I’ve missed you! *Leap hug*
2011 is the year of the rabbit, the same as 1987 the year I was born in.
Chinese zodiac may not mean much here in Australia, but personally I was jumping around and ready to soak up this once in a 12 year occasion. … not sure how, but I was excited.
Here is a quick dribble scribble of how 2011 started off for me.

Ironically these events became inspiration. The strength displayed by the people who were affected and how people around the world worked as one to aid these areas.
At the time, Foot Locker was holding a sneaker art competition, so I tried to channel some of that inspiration and contribute. Here is my entry, Samurai Heart: Hope for Japan design.

In other news, I have received an art grant to start a personal project. I’ll be starting it next week! More about it soon.
Hope everyone is well!!

xxoo Makoto

Merry Kurisumasu!

Merry Christmas!

Hope everyone is having a great holiday.
It’s a bit late, but here is a Christmas E-card animation I did for Copyright Agency Limited.
This project was heaps of fun to work on and once again a big thank you to Mr Luke Jurevishus 🙂 Enjoy!

xoxo Makoto

Melbs: Semi P, Tim B and Macarons

Hi blog,

Wow, I didn’t even realise but it has been some time…
Adelaide is finally… FINALLY shedding it’s winter coat and feeling a little bit of that sunshine.
Now I can start crawling out of hibernation for soon-to-be ice-cream season.

Currently doing an illustration gig, which has been a wonderful experience.
Hopefully I will be able to put up some samples when some time passes.

I recently did a trip to Melbourne for Semi-P and Tim Burton exhibition and I also got to catch up with some awesome pe-po. 😉 While we were there we also discovered the Lindt cafe which I highly recommend to any chocolate/cake/macaron lover. The trip was a fantastic way to feel inspired, refreshed and macaron content.

Here is my contribution to the ACMI Tim Burton exhibition.

… and Final <3

Happy Summer Wedding

Hallo~ Blog >v<

While I was up in Brisbane I went to a friend’s wedding . She was the first out of my friends to get married. It was an extravagant wedding; cultural fusion, beautiful bride, dashing groom, beautiful flower arrangements (by the bride herself), seafood buffet >v<, cake buffet, and I am so glad I was able to be a part of this momentous occasion.

She is an intelligent, beautiful, unique and vibrant person who constantly inspires me.
So I made her this 🙂

(Manga ink illustration with water colours and water colour pencils <3 )

It didn’t compare to the bride herself, but I hope you both stay happy forever <3

xoxo Makoto
