Gappa & Guma charity picture book

Kumamoto Earthquake Picture Book Project
Here are the details for the crowdfunding project as it is running currently here: https://kumamoto.dreamraising.jp/pr…/kumamoto_pictures-book/. The book:

She likes swimming, fishing, and making music. One day, a terrible earthquake hits and Gappa is forced to abandon her home.

Kumamoto Earthquake Disaster - Charity Ts and Picture book

Wish me luck.

It looks like she's a HUGE part of the flick.

Margot Robbie's Harley steals the show!

Below is a print I created for a Movie art exhibition a few years ago. And here is an old post about when I actually got to meet the man himself!
