Tell us about this design:
I like the theme 'samurai' design as an asian artist. This artwork is somewhat inspired by japanese movie 'Zatoichi' directed by Kitano Takeshi. I love blind samurai character that have a superier sword skill. I want to depict blind samurai's inner mind that revenge of geisha's sorrow from japanese supernatural creature 'tengu'. So, geisha and tengu's image are placed in samurai's inside.
