   It's no secret the majority of the NBA's fanbase resides in Asia. As the league's popularity swells, the demand for basketball art rises in terms of promotional art for online & print ads for games, local leagues, shoes & other merchandise & from fans who want more than just an enlarged game photo on their wall. Many of the artists here make a living from their basketball art & sports illustration. It's nice to see there's a market to support their creative passion.

   The final creation is only part of the equation. In art, the process is a significant element & with amount of detail & skill Jean uses in his surreal sketches they become worthy artworks on their own.

Ghost in the Shell Art Collection

   I had to do a GITS art collection, with all the controversy swirling around this film I felt compelled to weigh in on the issues of whitewashing & appropriation. I'll be peppering my comments & supporting videos in with 38+ thought provoking artworks from talented artists around the world.

Masamune Shirow 士郎 正宗 - Ghost in the Shell

   With GITS, as with most issues in life I stand somewhere in the middle. I'm actually excited about the project, unlike IronFist or Great Wall & will venture out to the theater to see it soon, but I think they could've been more inclusive &/or really made whitewashing an essential theme in the script.
