Usagi Yojimbo: Support for Stan and Sharon Sakai by RobbVision Usagi Yojimbo: Support for Stan and Sharon Sakai by RobbVision
This is a piece I recently illustrated to benefit Usagi Yojimbo creator Stan Sakai and his wife Sharon. They both recently lost their grandson, and have also been struggling with Sharon's debilitating illness which has let to costly medications and around the clock care.

I've always been a fan of Stan's work and wanted to donate something for the Cartoon Art Professional Society auction and fundraiser. I met him years ago at a comic book convention and he was a very friendly and approachable individual. If the auction is still going on (and I'm not too late) hopefully it would be available for sale.

I created this traditionally with India Ink and watercolor.

THIS PIECE IS NOW FOR SALE ON EBAY!

This is beautiful, and I am sure he would be honored to see it. Sounds like he's going through a rough one.
I may not make the auction or anything but you've inspired me to finally to a Yojimbo. If only to honor Stans work myself.

Definitely showing some great influences from A starry Night with the background. The etching is so flawlessly executed especially with the limited color. It's amazing, great job!

it sort of evolved, i had it all one color…then i added a bit here and there, it was originally just b&W. I also added that background texture last minute (even though it took a while)
