Monsters and Dames- Moriko and the Mighty Akumu

“Moriko and the Mighty Akumu” has been accepted into the 2013 “Monsters and Dames” book. This annual project is an Emerald City Comic Con charity art book that raises money for Seattle Children’s Hospital. A signed print of my entry will also be made available at the ECCC charity art auction. I’m proud to be among the 80 artists chosen from 145 entries for this wonderful showcase. My entry was inspired from an upcoming series of monster characters with a Japanese wood block print flavor. Stayed tuned for more on this project soon.
