wip, having some fun with Buaku
Today, UK-based Arrow Video announced their list of upcoming blu-ray releases for the summer, and among them is Seijun Suzuki’s Branded to Kill. I was hired to do the box art for it, based on a previous poster I did for a yakuza-themed art show put on by my pal Sloane Leong.
I’m super excited. This was so much fun to work on. The release includes Trapped in Lust, a 1973 pink film re-imagining of it that I hadn’t heard anything about before. I can’t wait to see it.
July 28 in the UK

Observational notes from the day before CAB. Flatbush Ave, Brooklyn NY
Drew this guy the day after CAB in NYC
An unused cover I was hired to do for a book project related to the Trayvon Martin case. Most of my ideas felt cliché at first, involving hoodies or Skittles, and I wanted to avoid that. They also ended up looking cool, rather than ominous or sad or mournful, more like a cover for a crime novel than a tragic event that’s part of huge systemic problem. Anyway, I sort of liked how this came out.
