I began reading One Piece in 2004 when it was first released in America. I found my way through the internet as a 6th grader reading shoddy English translations by fans of the Japanese Manga, and to this day I've made it a routine to read it weekly for more than half my life now. For that very reason, I chose to make this piece my first inaugural print of 2020 for my new artistic direction.
My 3 biggest challenges with this piece were inter-weaving the layers so that each character could be prominently featured, washing out a giant Franky Shogun Mecha in the distant background, and rendering Zoro's Shusui blade.
