Drawing from "The Art of Usagi Yojimbo"
A few years ago, I had the great pleasure and honor of being asked to contribute to "The Art of Usagi Yojimbo", a REALLY nice hardcover art book all about my friend Stan Sakai's character and comic book, "Usagi Yojimbo". They didn't have to ask me twice!
I had a lot of fun drawing this piece. I wanted to include the Turtles somehow, but not obtrusively -- I mean, this was "The Art of Usagi Yojimbo", not "The Art of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles", after all. So I figured out a way to do that, and I think it worked out okay.
While at Anthrocon in 2005, I gave the original to Stan. I'm glad he liked it! -- PL
