01 Aug Akira Tribute Piece
I recently completed a piece for Q Pop Shop’s “Neo Tokyo: A Tribute to the World of Akira” art show running from July 27 to August 12. 2018 marks the 30th anniversary of the anime film “Akira” directed by Katsuhiro Otomo based on his own anime. The piece is titled “Circles” which I used to base the design on. This piece was done with sumi and vermillion inks on hot-press watercolor paper.
You can visit Q Pop’s site to see the other pieces in the show which are all available for purchase. If you’re in the area, snap a photo of my piece with yourself doing a weird pose in front of it.
Lastly, I made a timelapse of the piece on YouTube below.
