So, this is the piece I prepared for Sloane´s yakuza exhibition at Floating World Comics in Portland, called “Battles without honor and humanity”, honoring Fukasaku´s movie.

Actually, the whole exhibition is an homage to the yakuza-eiga genre, that I couldn´t love more.

About the picture, at the beginning I was looking for some kind of disturbing feeling, but it ended up quite Miyazakish thanks to the coloring and the thin inking. I even changed the ojisan´s face into a smile in the middle of the process.

In general, I think I´m kinda happy with that.

As always, there is a story behind. I think I can´t do illustration work without thinking about something happening. Both are tattoo makers, in a Kenobi/Luke kind of domestic relationship, trying to survive the gokudo the best they can. Who knows if there is more to come.

Hope you like it.
