Red, White, and Flew

Can you believe it? Street Fighter turns 20! Where does the time go?! I remember losing, losing, and losing to this game, but man.... was it worth every quarter. The designs, graphics, and backgrounds were just absolutely stunning, and gorgeous. Today it still is one of my all-time favorite games, cartoons, comics, or what-have-you.

I was asked to contribute a pin-up for the tribute book Udon is launching in July at San Diego's ComiCon 2008. I did this a couple months back. I had a ton of fun working on it, and the way Akuma turned out in the background was a happy accident.

If you'd like to read more about it then here's the link; http://comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=16578





Hope y'all digs!

Awesome Sean! I'll never forget getting that game for x-mas in 1992. It was the turbo edition, and my friends and I played that till our fingers bled.

Peace,
