Makenai (Never Give UP)


Last October, I based myself in Sendai and traveled around the area that was devastated by the Great East Japan Earthquake. The ship in this picture is a large fishing boat that was washed up into the middle of Kesennuma City by the tsunami. I found it very difficult to decide whether or not to draw this picture.
Actually it is the first time that I have ever created a picture with a strong message like this, or one in which I have placed a subject towards which I have an affinity against a realistic background in this way.
As a result, I had a lot of trouble trying to get the background, which I drew from a photograph, to match the figure of the girl. I still think that the level of finish leaves a lotto be desired.
However, I drew something that we must never forget. I would like to thank everybody who provided me with the opportunity to do this.
