Okay, I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post this yet......but here goes. I haven't posted anything in a while because I've been busy with my current job (illustrating this kid's book about the founder of judo), and planning my honeymoon to Italy.... That's right, I said honeymoon. I know we've been married almost 2 years already, but since this is our first trip alone together anywhere....it is our honeymoon.
And about this illustration.....the story is set in the mid-1800's in Japan. Here, the hero of the story , Jigoro Kano, is 11 years old. He is walking down a busy street of a Japan newly open to foreign lands. To the left of the image, we see examples of older, traditional japanese culture, and to the right, a bit of the western world creeps in.

This is a concept I did of the Cowardly Lion from the Wizard of Oz asleep in the cursed field of poppies. Surrounding the lion are the bones of other creatures who suffered the same fate, but had no one to rescue them. The Tinman and the Scarecrow are carrying Dorothy to safety in the distance.

For my very first post, here is an illustration I've recently done called "Thousand Robins". I was inspired by my friend's band "Thousand Robins". They rock. You can check out some of their songs on their myspace page:
or check out their website that's still in progress:
