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.

Here’s a piece that I contributed to Q Pop’s tribute show to the anime series “Revolutionary Girl Utena“. The show features the protagonist Utena who is a new student at a school where the students duel over the hand of the Rose Bride, Anthy.  The piece is done with watercolors and sumi ink on cold press watercolor paper and measures 8×10. The original and a few prints are still available on Q Pop’s online store as well as other prints for previous tribute shows. This is the first traditional piece that I’ve submitted to a gallery show.
