Contest Drawings

Here are two recent contest drawings of popular television celebrities in Japan. This first one is of Kanako Yanagihara. She does a lot of television commercials and I made a Valentine Day pose of her from one of her well know commercials which she was selling shellfish flavored ramen and I also included the company mascot (a fisherman) in the background pretending to be a cupid.

The next one is Matsuko Deluxe which may be confusing because this is a transvestite performer and what looks like a she is really a he. The comic element of his performance is to impersonate a really large lady and so in my drawing I wanted to give the impression of LARGENESS by drawing him in the shape of a mountain.
