Let's make the darkest and most powerful Samurai images, a true homage to the films of Akira Kurosawa. Epic and intimate. For this I need to get a all black Edo period (1603 - 1868) samurai armor, helmet and a katana. Also the pictures need an outfit for a foot soldier. As you can see from my previous works, I can do wonders with minimalistic sets and powerful characters.
I wish to share the production process of the images with the backers. And in this the private tumblr blog comes in. This project is impossible for me to personally fund and for this reason I am doing this crowdfunding and pre-selling the cards and prints of the image. I hope this project will capture your imagination.
