Like i’ve mentioned before it’s sometimes a little tough to say where inspiration for certain pieces come from and this is a pretty good example. Personally i blame the pernicious influence of TV and the internet – but then what do i know. Anyway it’s a picture of a little kid crying and the Japanese text says something along the lines of ‘Let loose the Banzai battle cry’. Put them together and this is what you get. That’s as far as i’m willing to go…

She’s a generous 42 x 46 cm in size and is made using pastels, ink and charcoal. Signed on reverse.
