Welcome :D

Let me show you some of my 4koma (about my life with cats).
Nao-p is my nick name my friend Mami Tachibana gave me. And I call her Mami-p. Of course it comes from Wedding Peach "Momo-p". No one calls me by the name except for her, but I love the 4 koma cartoon "Go Go Momo-pi (Gan-bare Momo-p)"(In the paperbacks) so I use it. :)
Oh, I'm a manga artist Nao Yazawa, and author of Wedding Peach, by the way. :)

These "comic strips" come from my 4-koma blog (in Japanese). You can see all of them in original here. If you have a request which 4koma will be next, tell me. :D
Other Japanese blog


Let us play!

As you see, I drew this for a while ago -you don't need a heater anymore. It's early summer, not spring anymore!


This is on purpose?

Now, because I know how she does so the protection is almost perfect, no damage on the blanket. Washed the covers.


The magic of the feather blanket

Father blanket is such nice, efficient and functional... but Kuto loves to pee on it...


She is Still Not Big Enough

I don't need to keep Mei out because only Kuro pees on my blanket. But you can't make Kuro lonly... so they are together.

Coffee Party project 2015

Making doujin manga book for Kaigai Manga festa(Tokyo International Comic Festival) 2015. 

Join this project and show your work on Coffee-Party book "In Search of Lost Coffee" vol.4. This project is open for everyone. 

When CoffeeParty book 3 was released, a couple of people asked me if I was planning any project like last 2 books. I answered I had no plan right now, but I would do something in future. Then almost a half year has past...and now, I have a new plan!

To join this project, you need to draw...

Black and white drawing for the body, one small character drawing in full color (for the cover) and a note for a comment space.

The subject  can be anything about Coffee Party characters. Croissant, Eclair, Dango, and Brioche.
You should take Croissant or Eclair at least. You can add your original character if you like - he or she should be named by a sweet, typical one in your country (Something nice with coffee). 

Anything is OK, illustration, a drawing with some words/dialogue, 4koma/8koma, or short manga(8 pages maximum).  Dialogue should be in English, then I'll add Japanese subtitle. 2-8 pages/person, I'm thinking right now.
Manga/Comic both stiles are acceptable. (left to right / right to left) 

On the first page, your name and title(if you have) are required.

You need to pay 700 yen/page+ 200 yen(for comment space). 
if you want to draw 4 pages, means 3000 yen. I'll send you Paypal money request. 

You'll get 10 copies. (Shipping cost is not included) If you want more, you can tell me.

Dead line of drawing : 18th Oct. (Because I'm leaving Japan the end of Oct for Banzai-con, it's earlier a bit)
Deadline of plan (how many pages you will draw): 18th Sep.
Deadline of entry : is unset, but I closed it when the amount of people/page reach enough.)

Drawing (for Body)  Black and white. (Gray scale is not acceptable)

Manga Studio file (A4/1200dpi, default). If you don't have Manga Studio, Tif file(158x220mm) is also acceptable. 
Template: Manga Studio file / Tif file is available.

Comment (Black and White) 
Comic Studio template or TIF  45mmx127mm(H/W),1200dps

Illustration (for cover) Color(CMYK), Tif or high quality jpeg image. 400dpi.
1 or 2 characters, and one should be Croissant or Eclair. e.g. Croissant & Eclair, Croissant and your original sweets character. (You don't need to pay for this) Without any background. It might be shrink, or cut some part for the layout.
(← It will be something like this. Without dialogues, just characters)

If you'd like to join,  e-mail to yazawanet@yahoo.co.jp with a subject "project 2015". Let me know your plan, how many pages you want to take. It can be a rough plan. 

 I'll share a dropbox folder with you, which you can DL the templates from and upload your works to.

You can read vol.1-vol.3 from here.
Vol.1 (Online book on Digital Manga Publishing site)
Vol.2 (FB album)
Vol.3(FB album. The quality of images are low - sorry. I'll switch it asap.



Translation by Elina. Thanks a lot!!

I drew only Kuro, but I quarantined both of them. I can't make Kuro feel lonely! As the result, they have a lot of fun and ruin the entire place. ALL VERY FINE!


The Iron Gueard

Translation by Elina. Thanks a lot!!
I've switched the order now,  leakage guards first, then put a cover on it. When Kuro did, I wash the cover and leakage guard. It works...somehow.


Preventing The Accidents

Just in case,  I took her to vet. The vet said he didn't think she had any problem about urinary system, although didn't check her urine. I think she just likes to pee on down blanket.
Translation by Elina. Thanks a lot!!



Kuro's pee problem is serious! For some reason, she can't help peeing on something squashy, like cushions, blankets...

Translation by Elina. Thanks a lot!!



I've done nothing today, except for reading manga!! Awwwww.
Translation by Elina. Thanks a lot!!


Fighting All Day.

They are obsessed about putting off things on the desk, so I can't let them in my work room recently.

Translation by Elina. Thanks a lot!! :D I get a translator!



Mei scatters food and water, Kuro pees on my futon... 2 crucial problems at the moment.

Mei and Kuro


Start 4koma manga again~!

Although I don't draw "Gijin-ka"(擬人化), they came to my mind, for some reason.

It was long absence - because I was busy for preparation of new online manga lessons, to build a new manga school site (TeamUp) , blog, G+page so on, because my desktop PC got a trouble (it's started on Feb. and settled yesterday at last,...oh well!

Anyway, I finished some 4komas. For some reason, all of them are about Kuro and Mei!
