Shogun Assassin, Lone Wolf and Cub
Posted 3 years ago and submitted by Sam Hetherington | Share link:


“When we’re on a mission I keep count of how many Ninja my father kills. He says not to keep count, only to pray for their souls. But if I don’t keep count I don’t know how many souls to pray for. So I keep count. So far it’s three hundred and forty-two.” [Three Ninja ambush Lone Wolf. He swiftly kills them.]

“Three hundred and forty… five.”

This illustration is inspired by the cult Shogun Assassin films from the 1970’s directed by Kenji Misumi. I have produced these as a limited run of 100 Giclee Prints on 308gsm Fine Art paper for my new Big Cartel store – Now Open.
