Finished March 11 2012, Photoshop.
Japan has been the home to many amazing heroes and the talented creators who brought them to life. They have inspired fans and artists all over the world.
But it is the spirit that the people of Japan have exhibited in the face of the terrible disasters which befell the country on March 11, 2011 that is truly inspiring.
One year later, this is my small tribute to that spirit. I wanted to create something that focused more on the positive, can-do attitude that has emerged since that day, both within Japan as well as aid from the international community. What better way to express that then to show Goku and Astro Boy, the most popular and positive symbols in all of anime, giving the thumbs up.
