I spent the holiday season working on a campaign for Southern Comfort, Japan. They are trying to introduce Mardi Gras in Japan. My friend, Takuya, hired me to do all the illustration work. It turned into one of the strangest ad campaigns I have ever seen, and I am super excited about it. When all the products are ﬁnished and I receive photographs I will post a lengthier exegesis.
But, while finishing it up, brand manager Haruyo Naka convinced someone to hire me as a kind of representative artist for the year. This entails doing a mural kind of piece that Southern Comfort will use to promote their brand in Japan.
Anyway, last week I ﬁnished it up and this is what it looks like.
