Blog of the ever learning artist- R. Lateef


Jiraiya-san maintains his facial anonymity behind the sketch he created for me. 

Great day today! Met the popular Japanese erotic artist, Jiraiya! He's a personal favorite of mine, so it was great. Got a print signed, book signed, and he even drew me! Very nice guy! I'm incredibly blessed, lucky, and fortunate to have met so many artists that I admire! 

Thanks to Jiraiya-san for coming all this way, and also thanks to the Cartoon Art Museum, Graham Kolbeins, and Anne Ishii for facilitating the signing. Special thanks to Deb Aoki, who told me about the event!
