I moved back to America in 02 after an editor from a company that now no longer exists called one early morning and offered me a job drawing comics if I relocated. Because I had learned to draw in Japan there was always a manga feel to my art and I really struggled with it; trying to bring a more American/superhero feel to my comic pages. When I was cleaning out my office I found a bunch of really nice, never used pages that sort of represent all that hard work to change, and also my zenith so to speak in terms of drawing American. This was done around the time I was starting to want to create my own stories, and although nothing came of the idea, the picture here is one of my favorites. Enjoy!
