inspired from the movie 'apocalypto'
which may be not historical correct or deliver a true picture of the mesoamerican civilization,
but I liked the costumes and set-design a lot

一期一会

A drawing for my brother who was in Japan the last three weeks with a buddy of his.
Since I can't read or write in the japanese language I borrowed the typographie from an old karate-movie poster..
for me it was fun drawing but it's also some kind of joke so any political correctness was left aside,
please don't take it too seriously ;)

Dennis Hopper portrait

Dennis Hopper is one of my favourite actors and had a great impact in the new way of approaching cinema at the rise of independent filmmaking..
in the words of Matthew Hays, no other persona better signified
the lost idealism of the 1960s than that of Dennis Hopper.
He died yesterday due to complications from prostate cancer.
Rest in peace.
