I acknowledge that some of my mash-ups are combinations of the digitised works of others - images highly available off the internet. If there is any 'art' it is in how I see new possibilities in the original poses and spend my time working to achieve that idea. I've tried to acknowledge all sources and originating artists.

I hope you enjoy the results. Thanks to those of you who fav my work. I'm honoured.

P.S. If you notice that I've taken something of *yours* off the Net, please leave a message. I'll gladly acknowledge you as the originator and add a link here to your homepages. Or remove.



  • Listening to: Clous Age Symphony
  • Reading: Facebook.
  • Watching: Haruhi Suzumiya
  • Playing: Railroad Tycoon II (yeah, I know)
  • Eating: Icecream
  • Drinking: Gin and Tonic
ART 2013: KEY-WORD SUMMARY: 'I did stuff'. Some of it I don't show here. It's on Facebook. 'Memes' and shit. Random hasty mashups. Still trying to go viral and get my 15 gigabytes of fame.

I abandoned all hope of ever seeing my stageplay produced. Ditto my short film - although some people in New Zealand now have it, and *Might* yet do it. I wrote *another* book. Steampunk, *again*. Was meant to be a comedy, but it also features my highest body-count to date. 

Oh, and on that note - I finally got a publishing contract for the first 3 in the series. <Tired 'Huzzah'> 
AND 2013 saw the release of my long-awaited next children's book. <Another Tired 'Huzzah'> 
Sadly, all the children who had been waiting for it had since grown up, married, had children/grandchildren, and died.  

COSPLAY. I dragged out my 2012 costume and did a photoshoot. You can see that here (…

AND, working in secret for some 300 hours, I created my vainglorious cosplay swansong "Stempunk Haruhi" - who was meant to light up the world, but didn't. Kind of disappointing. I seriously thought she would. WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH THIS WORLD?! (…

And finally, suddenly, unplannedly, I started doing animations; GIFs. 
I'm enjoying it. 
It's not easy. 
(I never do things that are easy.)

Cheers, & happy bloody merry Seasonal Festive Day to ya all!


Lookafar's Profile Picture
part-time genius
Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
I was born before TV, before Elvis rolled his pelvis, before Gene Pitney even LEFT Tulsa, before anyone thought of M*A*S*H (but while it was really happening). Louis was still tootled his horn, cars still had running boards and headlights like toads' eyes. All telephones were black and Men still wore Hats. I played in dirt, I teased cows from the trees, I walked to school and I scraped my knees. I fidn't dit, yet damn it I could draw!
A long time later, I came here to hide my secrets.


Osaka Guitar Hero.Test.6
As you can guess from the title, this is my sixth attempt at getting this to run correctly. Actually, about my *tenth*!

Inspired by a graphic still I saw on the internets: Osaka doing the big leap, K-On style!

There is a much longer sequence planned, and it'll still take me hours to set transparencies on 40 frames, load then, tick all the boxes, etc.

And weep and curse my software. As you so.

You might see it within the week.
Active/Static II
My 2nd attempt at getting this idea 'on paper'. Considerably better! Captures the core-idea of rotate & rewrite.

Entirely my concept (and my hand!). 
Kaorin + Sakaki, Flapper Era by Lookafar
Kaorin + Sakaki, Flapper Era
Here they are, fully dressed and ready for the Cotton Club. 

Another labour of  love; *three* weekends sucked away.
But I'm very pleased with it, all up. A change from the usual yuri erotic intimacy one tends to see.

Characters & faces, by Kiyohiko Azuma. Feathers - photograph; Hat - photograph (That is my hat!).
Poses - I used references.
Clothes and jewelry - all done by my 'umble self. [Also it is my 1st ever attempt at 'fashion design'.]

OH! - and I owe a something to for a great deal of inspiration and a single particular detail of Flapper-skirt design. She'll spot what I mean. AND - get over there right now and look at her work it is AWESOME!!! 
Sakaki + Kaorin Close-up by Lookafar
Sakaki + Kaorin Close-up
Kaorin's haircut ..... = 1920's FLAPPER!

I so wanted to see her as a flapper, but of course I'm always leading the world with my ideas - so <shrugs> Have to do it myself. Aaaaand ... Well: the best pic I got of her was this profile view (by Kiyohiko Azua himself - Character Sketches.)
Sooooo ... if she's turned sideways, what is she doing ... aaaaand ... well: d'uh! SAKAKI! (Screen cap from the anime)

So this is a 'close-up' of the happy couple, all dressed for the club. No diff from the full-length version, except I'm doing this one so it (hopefully) displays on you screen better. For detail.

I re-did it. After the Sakaki card came out so well, my first card looked crappy.
