Story

I'm not going to go on about how shocked and saddened I've been by recent events in Japan; I don't really have the words. What I'm going to do instead is briefly outline what I'm going to try and do as my small bit to help.

Starting on March 31st, I will be drawing and posting a picture a day, one for every letter of the alphabet, of Things That Are Awesome. I did something like this once before and people seemed to like it, so I thought I'd try it again but with a couple of differences: 1) this time we'll be focussing on the insanely rich field of JAPANESE Things That Are Awesome, and 2) I will be asking people to sponsor me in this endeavour. I've set up a JustGiving page where you can go and support the project, at http://www.justgiving.com/neillcameron. All money raised will go to GlobalGiving's Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund, where it will be used to support organizations providing relief and aid to victims.


Please do chip in if you can! This is going to be rather a lot of work and if no-one sponsors me I'm, uh, going to feel totally stupid.

To join in, you can suggest things for me to draw in comments on this blog, at my twitter feed or on the A-Z of Awesomeness Facebook Group. Feel free to suggest anything you like from the worlds of Manga, Anime, Gaming, Movies, Music, and I will attempt to draw the best suggestions. Bonus points for alliteration, and it might be nice to get a bit of cross-cultural exchange going on in htere - if, for example, for 'D' you were to suggest Doctor Who and Doraemon Dunking Donuts Daintily, well then I would probably have to draw that. You get the idea.

I'll be posting the first picture on Thursday 31st March, and then one a day every weekday till we're done (Bank Holidays excepting). That sound okay? You've got a few days to start thinking of awesome things, and then we're off!
