the paniolo, the samurai and the young monk
characters from a really important project that i want to do in the future. one of my goals is to make this comic series/graphic novel that will be in the school curriculum in Hawaii. most Hawaiian history books cover ancient Hawaii and its mythology and then skip towards the overthrow and then to the white guys who took the Islands over.
i want to explore that time period, between 1880-1900, when there were people coming from all over the world, either of their own free will or forced, to try and make a better life there. there were Japanese, Chinese, Portuguese, Puerto Ricans, Maori and Phillipinos all struggling to make a life there and in that struggle they made a new culture, developed a pidgin language they could all speak.
but schools don’t teach that and history books don’t explore this time very much because it was all about the sugar and pineapple industries booming, all about the The Big Five.
anyway, this is something i wanna do soon because i would have killed to learn about this insanely important part of hawaiian history in school when i was younger. hopefully i can make this happen…

i just saw “Repo Man” (1984) for the first time last night and I wanted to draw this character from it because she’s super cool looking
She reminds me of John Romita Jr’s x-men run, which was around the same time.
YOU CRAZY FOR THIS ONE BRYAN
