My Budo inspires me in many different ways. I express this by creating what I call “budo drawings”, illustrations of my thoughts in budo. Some are very loosely inspired, for example the various “tanto geisha” I inked, others are more strict, such as my “kata study drawings”. But all are physical manifestations of some of the hard to grasp concepts that I study through my budo practice. Below, you’ll find a selection of my Budo Drawings. Some have already been published in Zanshin magazine. Should you have a request for a particular drawing, please do not hesitate to contact me.
