Oh, so I got married.
No for reals, I did.
I am overwhelmingly happy too.
Sachi and I finally tied the knot last Tuesday afternoon. We've been waiting for the right moment to do it and the right date came along. There's a significant meaning to the date as well:
11.22 in Japanese can be read as "ii fuufu" which means "good married couple" which is the real meaning for getting hitched this day.
We had a small ceremony with the few people that matter to us the most. It's only a small ceremony for now but when we save up enough money for next year's ceremonies we'll make sure to invite all you party people! You got two options: Japan or America..or if you're ballin' you can attend both
I'll be back on this post after I have pumped a generous amount of liquor and beer in my system so I can get all soft and mushy with all the thank you's I need to shot out
In the meanwhile, THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO GREETED ME AND MY WIFE!
...you have no fucking idea how much I love ya'll

As I was listening to some Johnny Cash for inspiration I came across this video for the song...I find it very appropriate to the song, The Undertaker was my childhood hero

I'm winding down on the last stages of this project and I gotta say....it wasn't easy. I've painted a Dunny before and that was difficult to get my proportions right and it was all done freehand.
Transferring was key for this project. I was gonna just wing it and freehand this too but that was not gonna happen the way I would've wanted it.
All those years in elementary when they taught us the many uses of tracing paper and how to transfer paid off.
Got exactly what I wanted transferring but what surprised me the most was how well it looked after it was fully painted and boldly outlined. Unfortunately some smearing happened on the face but I was able to recover from it.
Got so inspired with what I had, the rest of the helmet was naked, especially the front...so to give it that complete fighter plane look I gave it some shark teeth and eyes to really set off the whole theme Xavier was going for.
Finishing the painting of the teeth and off to bake the clear coat on right after
Sachi found the GREATEST video ever. I'm a big fan of enka and this artist named Freddie pops up with a new genre of enka which he calls en-soul! AMAZING. This song I can relate to the most because, yeah, love IS waiting at Kansai airport....www
Peep his track:
