Fight Soap in the US commissioned me to design cover art for a limited edition soap of theirs, naturally i was chuffed to be asked. The brief was wide open, I could draw anything as long as it would look good when printed 2x3 inches in size. That's really much, much smaller than I am used to creating for. It presented a couple of technical challenges which I detail on my Art Blog, so go visit there if you are interested in the design process.

In the meantime, you can buy this special edition of Fight Soap from their website - http://fightsoap.bigcartel.com/
I will update this entry once I know of UK and European distributors who are stocking this product. We're donating a share of proceeds from each bar to Tap Cancer Out - a BJJ and MMA focused charity dedicated to funding cancer research. I'll be collaborating with Tap Cancer Out on an art project at some point soon. You can read more about them here: http://www.tapcancerout.org/

So three great reasons to buy this bar - first, it's got my art on it!, second, it'll keep you clean and smelling of zest fruits for you after training shower, and finally, it's helping a worthy cause. Cheers!

Holy molly! The design is really sleek! Forgive me asking, but where's the kappa's "osara" on his head? It looks like a mere turtle without it ;)

Yes you spotted the omission.To be honest when I drew it, it was simply a giant turtle but Bon from Fight Soap decided on Kappa an so it kind of stuck. An executive decision by him lol.

Too bad for you, I'm a big youkai lover! Still, I am really digging the design. Have you ever heard of Gotch from Harizanmai? I am sure you'd love his work!

I'm gonna buy one of these soaps as soon as I find a new place to live in Japan next week, by the way :)
