Japanese artist Shohei Otomo (aka Hakuchi) shows us that his motherland has a rockin' pop culture like no other. Using simple ballpoint pen, he mixes old and new school images with his references to the Samurai, Geisha girls, and the Yakuza. Above all else, one thing is certain, Otomo does not hold anything back with these extremely detailed illustrations.

Inka first introduced us to his work about a year ago (post here). I loved his work so much I adapted it for the wallpaper on my Droid. He's awesome.
