Support for Stan and Sharon Sakai

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.

Here is the link to the information

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.

I created this traditionally with India Ink and watercolor.
