Kaijibano Shigotoryoku

火事場の仕事力 aka Kaijibano Shigotoryoku
by Takashi Shimada of Yudetamago
4/7/12 Release date
798円 @Amazon Japan

In his spare time between writing comics, Shimada-sensei recently penned a book dedicated to the idea of perseverance in your career during troubled economic times.  The title roughly translates to burning strength at work/in business).

Based on what I have read, it sounds like he documents his own journey though the highs and lows of the manga and anime industries (spanning 30+ years).  He also talks about reinventing yourself via new mediums and relaying on your strengths.

Should be a good read.

CCP Cast Kits

Looks like CCP has some garage style "cast kits" on the horizon.

Image Compliments of CCP

These will be raw, unpainted casts perfect for customizing and painting. Price should be pretty low as well. Very cool news.
