scribbles book cover wip by juntaro scribbles book cover wip by juntaro
I'm actually thinking it would be better if I put out a big book, instead of a little floppy. Seems like it would be more worthwhile to stuff as much material as I could in it.

What do you think about an 80 page book, for around $10 bucks? It would probably be for sale on Lulu, although I'm not crazy about the print-on-demand thing, it's the only option that makes sense right now.

The japanese reads "ranpitsu', meaning "scribbles". It's made up from the kanji for "riot, disorder, war" and "handwriting".

Despite expensive shipping I got my mitts on the book two days ago.

Enjoyed all of it, mostly some sketches at the end. Here's to hoping that you will publish Old City Blues soon.

Always amazed by the simple lines of your work. I think you're very close to your particular style of manga which is what it reminds me of.

Liked Oceania and the first story in particular.

Hey, thanks for getting it! I'm sorry about the shipping, too- I've still to find a way to sell stuff online while keeping the prices fair for everyone. I hope it keeps you entertained for a while, at least.

I think Oceania is one of my favorites in the book, too. I'd like to more in that style of SF sometime.

Again, thanks!

Don't worry about the shipping costs. I've become used to them. It is not always easy. The only way I can think of that reduces the cost of physically shipping something is digital downloads, and they're not the same thing. I like the feel of paper crammed with beautiful art!

I agree, the whole point of doing Scribbles to put a physical object into readers' hands. Again, thanks for getting it!

Thanks! It's funny you should say that, though- in the introduction to this book I wrote that that it shouldn't be taken as a coffeetable artbook! Hopefully one day I'll get to do a big, full-color, hardcover tome, though.

yup, no doubt, must buy. however, over the course of 3 1/2 years living in Tokyo, not once did i hear the word "ranpitsu" ...."rakugaki" is far more common. just sayin' tho. i'll buy it either way for sure!

:iconjuntaro:
juntaro Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2010
That's interesting, man. I just get this stuff off dictionaries, so who knows what kind of crap I'm getting. Rakugaki sounds much better, too.
And thanks. I'm glad the Japanese nonsense won't get in your way!

You'll have to just try it and see how it does, just like anything else. In any case, I guarantee you a purchase of one ten-dollar book. Would this include all the minis posted here on DA, like that Batman one?
Reply
:iconjuntaro:
juntaro Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2010
I'm really not sure if I want to include the Batman short, even though it's one of my favorite shorts. It seems like inviting trouble. Not that I'll get sued, necessarily, but I'm not sure if I want to make a profit off a fancomic.

:icontyphooncutter:
TyphoonCutter Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2010
That's a valid point. In any case, a book filled with your minis would be worth a purchase. Looking forward to it!
