Old Isht

These are some pieces i've done with Shin Tanaka that i never got around to posting. I missed out on designing a Gritty (, but i don't think i was ready at the time anyway) so i jumped at the chance to get in on the action this time.

"DRAGON!" MASK HOODY (series 2)
My original idea for the Gritty was to pay homage to Bruce Lee. When the MASK HOODYs were released i decided to use the same idea, but as it matured, the "dragon" idea became more interesting. However, i didn't want to stray too far away, so i kept the single stripe on the sleeves.

"Bees, boy!" SPIKY BABY (series 6)
At the time i was playing with making cuter faces. i was drawing small circles and smiles of varying sizes and in different positions to see what i got. After coming off the MASK HOODY, i wanted to do something completely free without a real concept. The title comes from the Aqua Teen Hunger Force episode "eDork".

I got some original papercrafts in the works as well, so be on guard.
