Thumbnail layout sketch for "Black Belt" written and illus.d by me, edited by Andrea Cascardi, publ.d by Knopf.. It was very interesting to me to do research for the project in that Okinawa, the country in which the book is set, had and has cultural influences from both China and Japan. The fun part came in combining these two cultures in designing the book as there isn't a lot of photo references of clothing and environment in Okinawa during the 18th century. Pencil, 1999.
