I cleared out my current sketchbook so have been looking through my old sketchbooks for free pages to draw in and found this drawing.
I remember being inspired by the design of Noodle from Gorillaz for this, but I also had my courier character, Jinjin, on my mind, too. I really love the military look, and looking back on this, I'm still really happy with this piece.
I couldn't remember why I drew this, until I noticed the emblems, which are actually Easter Eggs, and it all came back to me. I drew this early on after I arrived in Tokyo...it was a test to see if we might be able to do essentially splash images, so like Gorillaz, highly fashionable characters in fake apparel. Never pitched this, though.
