Behold, a new print!  Would you like to see this on a t-shirt, totebag, or wallet?

I got to meet ReuS, who is a local artist near where I live at the Sakura Matsuri festival in D.C. today.  Got a signed copy of ThunderKid, read the whole volume in one sitting, and absolutely fell in love.  ReuS’s style is reminiscent of the Sailor Moon manga, so I wasn’t surprised to see on his website that one of his number-one inspirations is Naoko Takeuchi’s work.  I believe Thunderkid is ReuS’s debut manga, and it’s so exciting to see his style and characters really begin to develop and take on a life their own as the chapters fly by.  Thunderkid was designed specifically to appeal to a wide range of audiences (from the youngest of readers to adults), and I think ReuS is quite successful in doing just that.  If you’re a fan of supporting local artists and new authors, if you love shoujo manga that’s been inspired by Sailor Moon, or if you’re looking for a manga that’s fun to read for the whole family, then I definitely recommend reading Thunderkid and keeping an eye out for future works by ReuS, who I believe is definitely headed places!

I don’t know who made this but I love it!

Thank you! ^__^ Repurposing old coloring books into glittergifs is kinda my thing.  If you wanna know how it’s done, check out my resource/tutorial post.
