Today's fan art of our lady Kamiko is by Griffin Cost. He's the original tweet he sent me with his rendition:
Drawing lace is a pain in the butt.
She Looks Like a Kamikaze Girl
Kamiko's pretty shredded looking. I write her with a bit of hubris/arrogance, but she's full on yanki here. I half expect her to do the yanki pooping squat. In fact, she could be Momoko and Ichigo from Kamikaze Girls, or [Shimotsuma Monogatari](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KamikazeGirls),_ merged into one person. Just give her a vespa to go with her parasol. If you haven't seen the 2004 J-flick, go find it and give it a watch. It's about the friendship between a Sweet Lolita and a Yanki.
Also, if you think Kamiko's too princess-y in her lolita, there was this from earlier in the comic: Kamiko and the Wolf, Page 5.
Wanna Read An Unconventional Mexican Crime Drama?
Griffin's the author and artist for an online comic called Blood Catalysts.
You can read it here: bloodcatalysts.com.
I read through the four chapters online. The story begins when a young man is given cybernetic arms against his will and left on the side of the road. A doctor named Tak nurses him back to health and becomes curious about his implanted arms. There's a lot of setup and character introductions, so I'm not sure where it will go yet, but it's got plenty of intrigue and mystery to give the story legs. The art is done in dark shades of gray and there's a great sense of cinematic flare with some of the comic's paneling.
If you're looking for an unconventional Mexican crime drama, something noir to read then take a look at Blood Catalysts. Be warned though lots of violence and language.
