So.....THIS just happened. :shock: :pint:

A surprise gift from one of my Instagram followers and longtime hero of mine (Joe Peacock, curator of the 'Art Of Akira' exhibition and owner of the largest private collection in the world), an original 4-layer cel set from Akira.
Holy fudge. :D :heart: :notworthy:

Bartkira Stout-homage charity commission all printed and starting to ship! Came out beautiful, VGKids are really great at what they do. :D :pint:
The artist Packatrix totally killed it with this, i can't wait to see it side-by-side with the mighty Stout. :notworthy:

The b&w variant came out quite lovely too - could have hours of fun coloring it yourself (unless you're as utterly shitty with a pen as me, in which case it's best just to hang it on the wall or lock it in the flatfile outta harms way, lol).
I love the reg most of all, but the b&w is really charming and in keeping with the monochrome aesthetic of the manga.

Cheers dude!

Here's my new one of Tetsuo, taken from when he's standing with the Akira jars before the fight with Kaneda/SOL. It's got a lovely pencil douga underneath but too big a file to upload.

The Kaneda douga is on it's way to me too, it's from the intro chase right after Tetsuo has crashed, when Kaneda sees Takashi as the helicopter searchlights appear. :pint:
