009 Blastoise - Pokemon One a Day pokemon nintendo blastoise abstract illustration hokusai japanese

Part of a series of 152 illustrations that sought to present the famous character creatures of the Nintendo hit franchise Pokemon in various new styles and direction. Blastoise is one of my favorite illustrations done in the series, and one of the earliest as the 9th completed art before the marathon really became challenging.

As a water type, I used "The Great Wave off Kanagawa" to send an image of power that would appear to surge through the creature. I wanted something that looked visually imposing and take up the canvas, and etched white lines through the form to make it appear even more striking.
