Illustrations by SHOHEI Otomo

Japanese artist Shohei Otomo (aka Hakuchi) shows us that his motherland has a rockin' pop culture like no other. Using simple ballpoint pen, he mixes old and new school images with his references to the Samurai, Geisha girls, and the Yakuza.

By SHOHEI, the son of the world-renowned manga artist Katsuhiro Otomo. Created using regular ballpoint pens and “mackee” markers.
