Akira – the film and the manga series – holds a part of my heart, something that I think many artists can also admit. It has been almost two decades since I saw Katsuhiro Otomo’s 1988 animated film. I remember two distinct feelings from that time. One, I was blown away. Two, art can make anything possible.
I decided to do some sketching in the AKIRA universe. My own take on the characters and settings. More to come soon.
