This design depicts a Samurai and he is in a bad mood, his dagger is drawn and one hand rests on a sword ready to go. In this design I have tried to achieve a balance between the headdress by stretching the Japanese kanji for samurai (侍) underneath him. The writing also gives it perspective as if in the street and I particularly like it how the symbol is red like blood.
The style of this design is a result of going down to Melbourne and seeing all that amazing graffiti. It has a Banksy stencil feel but with a little more colour.
