This Maneki Neko design depicting Sailor Moon’s cat Luna is so adorable! This motif works well for this black guardian cat, which signifies luck, happiness, and fortune. I highly enjoy this bright, feminine color palette. The traditionally black cat is depicted in a wonderful shape of purple with a black gradient. The floral bed in which the welcoming cat lies in, is fresh and sweet. Wonderful line work and color execution as usual for Ms. Lara.
Thank You Megan Lara

Every time I see one of these Akira mash-ups, I can instantly hear Kaneda’s theme music. Kaneda is depicted here as Vader from Star Wars. This dark lord seems determined, headed for his Tie Fighter ( Okay, technically a Tie Advanced x1 prototype). I enjoy the movement of his wind-blown cape as he walks up the design. His vehicle is meticulously illustrated and brings the eye upward. The design is then nicely balanced by the red, asian characters in the bottom of the design.

This is a hilarious rendition of Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker’s escape in episode IV “minion-ified”. Minions are extremely popular these days and lend themselves well to depicting other characters by their recognizable humanoid features. I enjoy the wonderful perspective of the gray-scale background. I seem to laugh every time I look at their little funny yellow faces as they swoop through the air avoiding fire. And ,oh no!, they dropped their beloved BANANA! HAHAHA!
