Throne of Blood

What's this? A post without a girl in it? Shocking!




Throne of Blood was the first Akira Kurosawa film I ever saw. I was in high school studying Macbeth in lit class and our teacher showed us this movie since it's considered to be one of (if not the) best film adaptation of the play. Admittedly it was pretty slow paced for my teenage self but the ending to that movie was burned into my brain forever. I've been a huge Kurosawa fan ever since.

Scott Morse asked me to contribute a piece to the Tr!ckster/Criterion Collection Akira Kurosawa one night only art auction benefit for Japan relief. At Tr!ckster in San Diego Friday, July 22, 2011.

Other contributing artist are:
Mike Allred, Scott C., Josh Cochran, Francesco Francavilla, Robert Goodin, Victor Kerlow, Ted Mathot, Scott Morse, Sho Murase, Yuko Shimizu, Jim Rugg, Bill Sienkiewicz, and Connor Willumsen.

Missed that one: must see it.

Haaha, seems I owe a great deal of my film, book, music and food palette to cartoonists and puppeteers :)

Hello Bill.
Amazing drawing.....like all the girls that you do!
My favorite movies directed ​​by Kurosawa are Throne of Blood
and Red Beard, and I am a big fan of Toshiro Mifune.
I bought the french edition of Rex Steele. And I loved it!

Kurosawa's 'dreams' is my favorite. Although, I think I've seen 'seven samurai' about a dozen times. So good!

Great piece!
