Keitai Samurai

Keitai Samurai

There used to be a magazine called Mangajin - a play on words combining manga and 'jin' - meaning person. It was way before its time since the Japanese manga boom didn't hit the US market for another decade.

They had great cover art that would mix metaphors- like a group of geisha gathered around the family television. I always wanted to try creating something similar - so a keitai (cell phone) samurai was a natural choice.
