Stan Sakai has been working on Usagi Yojimbo for 30 years. In a business dominated by Spider-Man, Avengers, Batman, and other superheroes, a Ronin Rabbit drawn by the cartoonist that created him has survived. Stan and his Samurai is a great inspiration to us all and shows us what we can achieve with dedication and love. When I met Stan, despite him lapping me several times over in talent and experience in our field, he treated me like an equal. I’m lucky to call him a friend.
As some may know, Stan’s wife Sharon has been battling a debilitating illness and the costs of this are beyond the scope of what most of us cartoonists could handle alone. He has been sharing his journey with us on Facebook and it has made me love this man even more. So today’s #DailySketch sale will go to helping the Sakai family keep fighting the fight.
