Who is The Yuri Canon?
The Yuri Canon is a freelance lesbian artist/writer who has been helping spread yuri goodness. Some might remember me by the name of Shinigami Shimai, or My Pixiv Page name Haruka Neko, or maybe even my old company name of Kat and Neko Manga from a decades ago. For years I helped out with conventions, such as Yuricon, and a number of other conventions and film festivals in the LGBT community to help spread the wonders of Yuri to the world. But after a mental collapse, and a lot of nagging from doctors and friends, it became apparent I really shouldn’t have been working so much… or at all… So I moved all my art online and I turned to writing yuri novels for the time.

After a very long, and much needed, break from the anime/manga scene, and with the help and support of my lovely wife, I decided to return to my old focus of helping to spread yuri to the world through more than just my art/writing. Slowly I’ve been trying to catch up with all the yuri that has spilled out into the world since I left and now, through the help of tumblr, am bringing my finding back to you. I’ve also recently started helping out the scanlation group Comet scan on clean up and redrawing of Shinozaki-san ki wo oto shika ni to help bring you more yuri goodies.

For the most part I’ll be posting my own art from my ongoing yuri manga, Inside OuT, to my silly shorts from Random Acts or other yuri fanart of couples I enjoy the most. Also, expect to see a lot of random yuri screenshots, news and art from other artist as I spread the wonderful world of yuri to you all.

So welcome, sit down and enjoy your stay. My Growing Yuri List for tags to many of the series I’ve already been posting about and links to where to buy/watch many of the series online. I’ll continuously be adding more to the list as I come across new things, or stumble upon old favs.

Thanks for dropping by and feel free to Ask Me stuff if you wish.

LOL, seeing がっこうぐらし! gakkou gurashi in the corner is such a contrast from Hanayamata. I can’t wait for that one to be animated too!

If someone told me that my dinky, three page comic would reach over 95k in two days i would have laughed at them!! A huge thanks to everyone who took joy in my silly comic! I have read all of the hilarious things that you have written about it and I am seriously in tears! haha thank you all SO MUCH!
 Yes I do know that self expression is important and that if he wanted to wear his out-of-date clothes then he could, bottom line is, the Boss is a snob. He cant have last seasons clothes on his employees?! that’s outrageous!
I love you all so much!! I seriously cant believe this. thank you!! 

Congrats!

Hey there sweetie. One of your post of your mini comic where the boss tells his worker that her tie was last season -which I fell in love the second I saw it- and I just had to stalk all your tags (sorry about that). I was wondering are those just here and there doodle comics or a comic you're thinking of creating and you're just testing out the water?

butterpaint:

Thank you! The baby comic is part of a much bigger story that my friend and I are working on. Hopefully in the future I will post more things about it.

Wait, there is going to be more? Must follow to keep an eye on this.

Inside out Vol3 Page 005 by The-Yuri-Canon

Finished a new page of Inside OuT today, needed to design new uniforms for the girls and had to search my reference pile for the old sketches of Hitomi.

Etna and Fonne - Shall we Dance? (Sketch) by The-Yuri-Canon

Trying to get myself back into the art mode again. Just told myself to draw anything, ended up with this. Its just a rough sketch with some colouring to remind myself what I was planning. Might make this look better laters.

I really loved Yuri Yuri and Yuri Yuri (ELEGY SYNDROME), these two are from the 3rd chapter of ELEGY SYNDROME, my fav being chapter 4 more so after that extra chapter at the ending. I wish Namori would create more, but then again she is kind of busy with all the side stories from Yuru Yuri now. Still the stories of Yuri Yuri were some of the best short stories I found.

Kids have those special indoor slipper shoes you see in anime, but teachers tend to wear sneakers or flip flops depending on the casualness level.

LOL, I know the feeling.

I just discovered something interesting about Tumblr just now. You can have a tag list posts in Chronological order! Yes, I get excited about the smallest of things at times… For most this isn’t a big deal but for those who post comics it might be. All you need to do is write a tag url, basically (your url)/tagged/(tag name)/chrono

eg: http://theyuricanon.tumblr.com/tagged/inside%20out/chrono

Basically I just clicked on the tag for my series and added/Chrono to it and it worked. Now I only wish I’d posted all of Inside Out instead of just from where I was at the time… Oh well, live and learn. *shrugs*

Should really get to work now… Still thought some might find this helpful.

I am the Beastmaster.

It was Pitch Perfect. i’m stuck is a more musical version of real life, it sucks because I’m visual and can’t sing for shit.

The Lego Movie. I am the opposite of fucked.

IM GONNA WRECK IT

'How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying' so basically I'm doing great.

THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL YES I HAVE ALWAYS WANTED TO BE IN A WES ANDERSON MOVIE

I’m pretty sure I watched like five seconds of Gravity before I made my parents change the station… I’m pretty well screwed.

Addams Family. Yes!

Rio- So Im a colorful bird in a movie where the music is tight? Sweet!

Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1 (Fuck!)

My soul to take - *shrugs* Even though it is a horror I think I’m alright. I’m not 16, nor was I born on the day a serial killer died or have 6 others born on the same day around me so I think I’m pretty safe.

Not having an expert (or daily hard) pure song to play is kind of annoying on School Idol, I need them for my pure friends.

I know what you mean… however I’m so far behind now after hurting my hands carrying my wife’s machine home. I could barely move my fingers after that, never mind the pain from this nasty thing on my wrist… Just staring at the screen blankly for the most part. Monday I’ll hopefully get back to art at least.
