The Australian counter terrorism raids launched this morning and are already brutally affecting innocent Australian Muslims.
Maywand Osman, who was detained during the raids at Waterloo Rd in Marsfield but not arrested, said: “I opened the door this morning at 4:45am to about four police officers.
"They asked me to raise my hands. I immediately raised my hands. Four officers then jumped at me and one punched me in the face.
"They threw me to the ground and started hitting me in the head and pulling my hair.
"One officer grabbed me by the hair and said, "You piece of shit’.
While they were beating me I heard one officer say, ‘Just don’t make him bleed’.
"They then went inside my house to conduct a search. They found nothing in my house and I was not under arrest or in custody at any point in time."

Otomo Katsuhiro - Kaba
Selected pages from Kaba, an art book put out by Katsuhiro Otomo in the late 1980’s. These pages give a glimpse into Otomo’s studio and he also gives a small talk about his thoughts on art and illustration.
I took these with my phone so forgive the quality, I just wanted to share this awesome information since it’s somewhat difficult to find much of anything from this book online. Full view for hi-res and enjoy!
Someone asked a while back if I had any photographs of Katsuhiro Otomo’s studio. I didn’t, but! Austen Z just pointed me to this selection of scans from Otomo’s book KABA. The photos seem to be taken around the time he was working on Akira. There’s only a couple of pictures, but it gives us a lot of insight into his process. For example, we can see that there’s three desks in his studio, meaning he probably had up to two assistants when he was making the Akira manga. I’d wondered exactly how large his team was, and presumed it wasn’t much larger than 3 people.
By the way, below is a link to the most recent version of the career timeline I made for him. We can see that with this setup- himself and two assistants- he was averaging a little over a finished page a day, with a top speed of about 40 pages a month. He was also prepping the Akira movie at this time, and he had a wife and a 5-year-old son.
I have so many questions for him. What was his schedule like? On the one hand I want to be like this guy, but at the same time I want a wife who I get to SEE

THIS PHOTO WAS TAKEN LAST WEEK AT MY LOCAL KMART. YES, THAT IS A SEALED VHS TAPE OF JIMMY NEUTRON THE MOVIE, IN 2014, AT KMART, SITTING NEXT TO DVDS AND BLU-RAYS, PRICED AT $8.99
To give perspective, this film was released on VHS in 2002 and has been sitting unopened in a Kmart store for 12 years, longer than children now in middle school.
Plain proof that no one does inventory or gives a shit at any Kmart anywhere. Someone could probably live in Kmart and have no one notice.
In 2001, I did an experiment for school about the idea of living in a big-box store like this. I selected a busy 24hr Meijer, which is a midwest-only combination of Marts both K and Wal. I entered the store on a lovely friday afternoon, and didn’t leave the store until the following sunday evening. I read the entire magazine section, played all of the demos of the games in the electronics section, and beat minesweeper on my phone innumerable times. I ate at the pizza parlour they’d just installed, and slept on the display furniture. I wandered around the racks during the day, bored out of my skull. I considered buying frozen burritos and asking one of the employees if they had a breakroom where I could microwave them, but that felt like it wouldn’t truly answer the question if someone could live in a Meijer; I’d be using resources that weren’t public.
The only time I was ever asked if I needed any help was on sunday morning around 8am, and then it was only waking me up to ask me if I was drunk and had wandered in that night and fell asleep on their displays. I said, “no, I’m fine, I’m just trying this futon.” and was left alone.
The people that work there really don’t care.
