The New Logo

mulele-redux-hirizontal-logo3The last logo was a bit obtuse so I’ve to decided to make it all a bit clearer. The name of the company and this website is Mulele Redux. The Kanji in the logo is the single-character kanji for my name, Mulele.

In other news, I have a table at The International Manga Fest at Tokyo Big Site on November 15th. I don’t have a map to my table yet but I’ll put one up as soon as I get one. I hope to see you all there.

ELBIS and The Orphan Daughter of Time


ELBIS and The Orphan Daughter of Time

This book is the square-bound, Japanese Language edition. Re-edited and updated for Japanese readers and collectors.

Available HERE!

Part experiment in storytelling, part exploration of self, ELBIS is the story of Life, the sweet hereafter and the true nature of cats.
What started as a simple picture book of a supernatural cat, over a 2-year journey, culminated in this 44-page exploration of suicide and the healing power of cats.

People often ask me if I have some special feeling for cats or other animals.
No, not really. But I do think animals are cool. The have a different perspective to ours. Like they’re hip to what’s going on. The humans are just faking it but the cats know what’s really going down in the world.
Not my first time in the company of cats but it was the first time I had noticed a “neko no kaigi” or cat’s meeting. I hear they happen all over the world, cat’s just meeting up in small groups at night, all silent and sly, but nobody knows why.
What exactly is a cat? What are they up to? What is the relationship between cats and humans? It was really intriguing. In this small book, I answer these questions.

Comiket 2015

Holy cow! I’ve got my first ever table at the world’s largest Comic convention! There are so many exhibitors there’s a lotto system just to get a table. But the Gods of Comix have smiled in my direction and I’ll be there! To celebrate I’ll be there with some Comiket-only items you won’t want to miss. If you are in Japan on August 16th make sure you swing by my table: お16b.
I’ll be posting updates as I get closer to the day. Hope to see you there!


0201Sometimes between posts, grand schemes for blog content and weekly or even daily posts wash over my mind. And as I work through projects with deadlines a bit too tight for my liking, I put the idea of updating my website on hold till I could find time to sit down and really write. But then, both time and my grand scheme escaped me.

Yeah, it’s been way too long but now that I’m done with the recent project and all of its deadlines, I can sit here and play with my own ideas again.

It’s not often that life gives you a chance to go back, rethink your way out of those hairy situations and miadventures that have brought you to the place you are now. In fact, most of what occupies my mind these days is either how I got here or where I’m going. And every clue that helps me discover my way forward instantly seems so obvious that I should have known it years ago.

That’s not to say that I’m unhappy though, far from it. It’s just the realization that most of my happiness lies on the pages I’ve written and drawn. It’s something that just doesn’t come from the pixelated version. To that end, as much as I enjoyed making Mindgator as a webcomic, print makes me much happier and this comic really needs to be printed. So I’ve decided to re-work the story and fully expand ideas I had begun in the web version. My intention is to publish this on my own as a 4-issue comic that will see the completion of all the story lines and character arcs I previously initiated but had not fully developed.

I’ve re-worked the first 32 pages and collected them into what I’ve tentatively called issue 1, which has already undergone a short-run test printing. The two panels above are a taste from the first page of Mindgator 2, which — sorry folks — will never be a webcomic. But with a little luck and help from a kickstarter, it should be out in August along with Mindgator 1.
