Sailor Senshi and BONUS DANBO!
"IN THE NAME OF THE MOON, I WILL PUNISH YOU!" - by Cameron Garland of cameron+whitney
Sailor Moon fanart piece hand-drawn, hand-painted, and hand-cut by me (Cameron Garland), entirely with paper.
This piece, along with a bunch of other pieces will be for sale at Emerald City Comic Con ‘14, March 28-30! This will be my first time tabling at a con and I’m so gosh darn excited!!! I’ll have a table with the wonderfully talented bubblegumbones who you should be following right now! More details to come the closer we get to ECCC ‘14!
This is piece #3 in my “items” series (click the picture below or click HERE for pieces #1 & 2 in the series, featuring The Legend of Zelda and Adventure Time)

Finished my Sailor Moon gashapon shadow box yesterday! I can’t wait until I have some where nice to put it. (Might have over done it with the sparkles when editing the photo though haha)
That’s gorgeous and what a great idea!
I’m so glad Naoko went back to her original style of drawing for these covers. The senshi look so badass! Everything was just so cute and bright on the other re-issues. I liked them, and I understand they were cuter and more frilly to coincide with the live action show, which was aimed at kids, but I am just really digging the new covers A LOT. I really hope these images turn up in the new artbook.
It would be so nice if we got a new image of the Starlights on one. Really.
There are people old enough to legally drink who are younger than Sailor Moon
It took me a minute to remember that you’re in Australia, so it’s true. It confused me for a good ten minutes, though.
… I hate…
If you go by the fact of when the manga was originally published and Usagi’s age in it, then 1978 is her birth year. Not to mention in the original manga King Endymion says that Neo Queen Serenity ascended the throne when she turned 22, which would have been the year 2000, going by the original publishing date timeline.
Started a Sailor Moon full sleeve today. Very excited to add the outer scouts to the bottom half.
I’ve seen some terrible Sailor Moon tattoos, but this one is GORGEOUS. I love the varying line work and the art looks like it’s supposed to. I really hope to see it colored someday.
My parents were tattoo artists when I was growing up, and my sister and I were always at the shop. We had our own room in the back with a cot and a TV and a nintendo and were always given money to roam around downtown to buy ice cream floats at the local Rex-All soda fountain, go to a matinée, or buy comics from the local store (growing up in a small town is awesome).
Anyway, it has been instilled in me since I was very young to research EVERYTHING before getting a tattoo. (My Mom closed her shop and sold her equipment when I was a teenager due to health issues.) Here’s some tips to avoid getting a bad tattoo. Remember, this will be with you FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE.
1. Do not just go down to your local hole in the wall studio and ask for a tattoo. Research that shit. Ask to see the artist’s portfolio. If they’re worth a shit they will have one with samples of their previous work.
2. Ask around. Look for people with good work and ask them where they got it done. There’s plenty of places online too that can point you in a good direction.
3. I’m not sure if this is really prevalent in this day and age, my Mom did tattoos through the 1980s, but ask to see their sterilization equipment. Also, find out what that is and how it works. You don’t want to catch anything nasty from someone else from improperly cleaned equipment.
4. You are getting what you pay for. No good tattoos are ever free, or cheap. Tattoo parties are a terrible idea. Watch any of the “cover up” shows on TV and nearly every terrible tattoo was done by a friend of a friend for free, while someone was drunk, or at a tattoo party.
5. ASK ABOUT AFTER CARE. They should be able to provide you with all the information you need. I remember being in the nurses office one day in high school and a girl came in with a fresh tattoo that was bleeding it’s colors. It turned out that they had not advised her not to shave, even though she had gotten the tattoo on her calf.
6. Last by not least - never get your boyfriend or girlfriend’s initials or name or portrait or whatever unless you’ve been together FOREVER. My Dad has my Mom’s name and their 4 daughter’s initials on his arm, but they’ve been married for 34 years, so really… My Mom refused to do them for customers and most of her cover ups were this kind of work. Look at Johnny Depp, he’s trying to convince people now that is tattoo says “Wino forever” and means he loves wine. We all know different.
