Fudo-Myoo Oi!
Also known as Acala, Fudo-Myoo is a fearsome Esoteric Buddhist deity dubbed the Immovable. He's a terror to evildoers and a determined guide for all seeking enlightenment.

This is the first of a series of artworks I made in which I asked myself "What would it be like if deities appeared in the form of human punks/goths/alternative/etc?" Since we're dealing with a wrathful deity I decided to have Fudo take the form of an Oi skinhead, bleachers, boots, and ferocity included. Fangs become lip piercings, sword and rope meld into tattoos on either arm. He's ready to fight for everyone when needed.

Cheppu the Bruiser
This is one of a series of artworks retranslating deities in the form of human punks, goths, alternative, etc. I was inspired by a carved image of Cheppu I own, so I decided to depict the fearsome Tibetan deity Cheppu—divine protector with an appetite for snakes—as a large, grimacing rough-and-tumble fella doused in tattoos.

This is one of my first screen prints and the one with the most layers. After several preliminary sketches and a whopping six layers of ink, I finally got him printed out and ready to stand guard.

I'm so glad I finished that "Satyr" artwork (in my Gallery if you're really curious). I don't know how long it took me, but I'm sure it ate up tons of time. I'm pretty relieved.

I wonder if I should send it to my old professor. He really seemed to like it (while it was being created) and he never really got to see it finished...
