Here is the 3D sample of my original “Kemono” T-shirt with my manga characters.
To be honest, I’ve been experiencing some technical troubles. I hope it’ll be over soon.
The T shirt will be available at gay shops in Japan soon.
Please look forward!

Here is the still image of the shirt.

I DESIGNED AN EMA FOR KEMOKET

2017 年 4 月 14 日 Comments off

I made the original Ema for Kemoket (May 6th).

Ema is a picture tablet which we offer to a shrine or temple
when we pray for something.
As the new manga, “Enmusubi no Kami-sama to issho (IN LOVE WITH MY KEMONO GOD)” is about god of marriage, contract and encounter, I designed this Ema wishing for everyone’s good luck!

THE BOOK, “OTOKO MATSURI”, PRE-ORDER

2016 年 10 月 24 日 Comments off

Hello folks.
As I’ve been posting to Twitter and Facebook, a Japanese gay manga anthology dojinshi, “Otoko Matsuri” is coming soon. Officially the book will be available on Dec 29th, 2016, but you can pre-order the book beforehand.

The pre-order is available at the on-line store, “Rainbow Shoppers”, in English. http://www.rainbow-shoppers.com/jp/cmb.html

Also here is the list of the manga creators in the book. I’m sure your favorite manga-ka are included.

Go Fujimoto
Gai Mizuki
SUV
Gamma Chaos
ZIN
Satoru Sugajima
jin
Inuyoshi
Beet
Kohinata
Tsukasa Takase
Banse Inose
Urahara
Hico
Kokukokuboo
Yukimaru
TAMA

and me, Kazuhide Ichikawa.

A Japanese gay magazine, G-men, had gone and the occasions where we, Japanese gay manga creators, can get published our manga are diminishing (To be fair, lots of people are still working so hard to keep the occasions). Of course, in these days, there are various ways to publish manga individually such as digital distribution or publishing dojinshi. It’s very convenient and it is good.
However.
Personally I think having an publication and a media hub where gay can express themselves is also important at the same time since it can be the place where people can get to know about the gay artists/creators you didn’t know before.
In many ways, being an gay artist is tough. Moreover keeping on being the one is much tougher. Sadly it is just the same as everywhere. So as my situation, too.
However.
Dose that mean we can give up our words, our language as gay?
No. Of course, not.
To show the other gay people that we’re here and to show the sexual majority that we’re here, it is important to have the place where we can publish our words.
Again, surely it’ll be another tough process, but I hope this “Otoko-Matsuri” will be another beginning even if it’s just a tiny step.

I guarantee that the book, “Otoko-Matsuri” is fun and great, but if you like gay manga and gay manga culture, please, they need your support.

Well! That’s it for a small serious talk. I hope you enjoy, “Otoko-Matsuri”!!
