SnowCrash: Sushi K by IzzyMedrano SnowCrash: Sushi K by IzzyMedrano
I'm Sushi K and I'm here to say
I like to rap in a different way

Look out Number One in every city
Sushi K rap has all most pretty

My special talking of remarkable words
Is not the sterotyped bucktooth nerd

My hair is big as a galaxy
Cause I attain greater technology

I like to rap about sweetened romance
My fond ambition is of your pants

So here is of special remarkable way
Of this fellow raps named Sushi K
==================

Sushi K from Neal Stephenson's Snow Crash is quite possibly the WORST lyricist in all of fiction in existence. But I LOVED the idea of him. This is him with out all the lighting, and stage stuff. I reckon this is his go out to get coffee outfit.

Sushi looks much creepier here than I always pictured! Like an Asian David Bowie. I'm reading the book again, and I'm at the concert scene. Great take on Sushi K, keep up the good work!

Snow Crash! Sushi K! Though, I imagined his hair to be more like a giant glowing red afro, as described in the text, but, still, great pic. You should do Hiro, Y.T. and Raven next!

I love the texture on the boa/feathered collar and the low angle. You always have really interesting compositions for simple portraits

:D Cool... New style, old thoughts... His figure and "libertine mouth", painted in your own way with nucleus of a new color usage, is an inspiring combination. But I don't like rapping fellows, so stay away from him ... :D His character takes much from your... Am I right??? :D

"Down below, Sushi K pirouettes spastically as a beer bottle caroms off his forehead.."

Started rereading the novel a few days ago for no particular reason. Still surprisingly fresh. Really nice work along with the rest of your gallery.

Glorious. I <3 the colors and face. Always painting yourselfffff...

Though, the fuzzy crab hand in front isn't working for me. I get that it's supposed to be moving and thats why it's blurry but the shape doesn't quite read.
