My Contribution To The Upcoming ‘Sakai Project’
I wanted to share with you all the artwork I created in hopes of being included in the upcoming Dark Horse Comics-produced book “The Sakai Project”.
An article posted on the Comics Alliance website gives the details of this endeavor:
“A few months ago, news that Usagi Yojimbo creator Stan Sakai had come upon financial difficulties due to the ongoing illness of his wife, Sharon, led the Cartoon Art Professional Society to step up and help. Now, Dark Horse Comics is pitching in, too.
To celebrate 30 years of Usagi, the publisher has assembled a murderer’s row of artists including Adam Hughes, Art Adams, Dave Gibbons, Geof Darrow, Walter Simonson, Mike Mignola and Tim Sale for a new oversized hardcover called The Sakai Project. All the proceed from the book, which comes out July 23, will go to the Sakais.”
I used to read Usagi Yojimbo regularly years ago, so I wanted to do whatever I could to pitch in with countless other artists for this significant project.
Below, is what I created. Let me know what’cha think!
