One of my favorites paintings I've done...

i actually came up with the idea for this painting about 5 years ago, but finally got around to painting it last year. Samurai's wearing Louis Vuiton...oh so clever. It's based on my all time favorite Japanese woodblock print by Yoshitoshi. Here's what the original looks like...

when i was going to school in long beach i bought a print of this which i proudly hang in my living room. i suppose my painting is my little homage to him.
