At least, but not last!
Time to start again our flash project between me and my Swedish friend Old Horse (his Instagram here)
It was aside for a little while, but now we gonna kick these babies again. We will work mainly on “women” theme. So, he sent me a bunch of mother redemption flashes. Now, time to spin!

And meanwhile, got a visit from my old friend White Ghost (his Instagram here) from Sweden as well. Nice little painting he presented me and very good tips for drawings. These are the true dudes!

久しぶりにスエーデンの親友マーカスと下絵プロジェクトの再会です!今回は”女性”をテーマにするんで、今から頭をフル回転しなくては(汗
同時期にマーカスの兄から直接スカルの絵をもらいました。ありがたいです。何年経ってもこうして頭の片隅に自分が居るって事は。。。感謝!

Surprising mails on the box. Both from Sweden, but not geographically.
The first was the continuation of our project Longhorn Extravaganza Flash project (Fire & Earth). You can see previous post here
My friend Old Horse version of Fire just arrived and I’m already spinning on ideas to cover the other half of his flash.
The bastard already finished the one I had sent. You can check on his Instagram (here) or blog (here)

The other parcel was from another Swedish friend, but currently living around the world.
Mattias sent me this little photo booklet a couple weeks ago, and this is so sabbatical!
Quite different from photos he usually takes or the ones I had seen before. Maybe is this unique format (6X6), or the lightning…I don’t know. So gloomy and dark. Perfect gift to enjoy the depressive European winter!
You can order this book at Galeria de Muerte (Tokyo). Link here, or have a sneak peak at the shop Instagram here
Check the comment box of Instagram, seems that they ship overseas too!

Longhorn Extravaganza Flash project 10 (Water & Air)

Here’s my version of Water theme. Like my friend Horse, I took the inspiration from Herbert Hoffmann flash designs as well.
herbert hoffman flash
As you can see, the word “Letzte” it’s appearing on both versions. It means “last” in German. So, Horse’s drawing translates as the “Last Trip” (or last deployment, in sailor’s terminology). Mine, as “The last man”.
And I found this flash book from Herbert Hoffmann, notorious Hamburg tattooer and this drawing just was perfect to fill in the other half.

I changed it to a samurai holding a navy flag, commonly mistakenly called (or related to) war flag.
In Japan recently the use and display of this flag it’s been discussed and bringing controversy.
Neighbor countries, China and Korea blame the Japanese that the display of this flag it’s a reminiscent of WW2 imperialist ideology. So, it started from being banned from soccer stadiums (the last preliminary World Cup matches in both respective countries)
I obviously drew it as a relation of this flash theme that is about ships, sea and of course navy (merchant or military)
At the same time, I confess that I drew with feelings of patriotism and pride of my own heritage.
I hope I will not be the last to share these sentiments.
今回のテーマ水と風が出来上がりました!

Old Horse’s (his Instagram here) version for Water just arrived in my hands. Look here to see my version of Air. Now time to spin on some ideas to fill the other half page. I already know what’s gonna be, just need to sit down and flow the ideas!
The first of many “Reise” to come!
スウェーデンのマーカスから今回のテーマ”水と空気”の水バージョンが届きました!
何時もこのプロジェクトはメチャ楽しみにしています。さて僕が送った空気バージョン(こちら)をどう彼が料理するか。
そして俺は何を今回描こうか。

Longhorn Extravaganza Flash project 8 (Water & Air)

New task for our little project between me and Old Horse (his blog here)
tattoo flash project1
This time will be “Water” and “Air”. I choose air, and made my version of Njörðr (God of wind in the Norse mythology)
OK, isn’t really air, air…but wind is… you know what I mean!
Past drawings of this project can be seen all here
Hope you enjoy!
