Art Inspiration: Staff Cartoons The Dream Team: Gogo Yubari


I have been told in the past and in resent days, that I have been an inspiration to the children at school and to other people in general.  I have always found this interesting because I feel that these people and the children inspire me to create art and images instead of the other way around.

One example is when I drew the staff at my school as cartoon characters.  It started one year around Christmas when we have our Christmas concert and staff dinner.  Always after the concert, we go out for dinner and we exchange gifts, such as a Chris Cringle.  I wanted to liven things up and instead of giving Christmas cards, I decided to create my own with the staff members as a character from a movie.  The staff members were surprised; to say the least and they loved it, with a couple of exceptions on some humorous levels.

The next character is modeled after Chiaki Kuriyama and her portal of Gogo Yubari from the 2003 movie called Kill Bill.  The character is a sadistic 17-year-old Japanese girl who is an associate and body-guard of O-Ren Ishii.  She is skilled at killing people and in the art of wushu using a ball and chain whip.  She is the top assassin of O-Ren and has a memorable battle with Beatrix.

So why did I choose this character?  Well the character is nothing like the staff person.  She is Korean who is a quite, reserved, friendly person, the total opposite of the character I drew.  That is one of the reasons why I did draw her as that character.  I wanted to impart some power into the person that she is like the character.  You see, Gogo Yubari looks like a quite, sweet little schoolgirl but watch out.  You never know what strength of character she really has is until you get to know her.  I told that this was a good thing that I see greatness within her.

The other reason has to do with her room partner.  You will have to wait until next week to see her.

Well she enjoyed this character and the reasoning behind it.  I hope you enjoy Gogo Yubari.
