Today, the 9th of February, marks the day that Tezuka Osamu, the creator of Astro Boy, Kimba the White Lion and Black Jack, among others, and known by many as the father of manga and anime, passed away in 1989. His contributions to what is now one of (if not the) biggest industries in Japan, and beloved by millions across the globe, is what brought up (perhaps indirectly) so many of the series we know and love today. So thank you, Tezuka Osamu-sensei, thanks for all that you've done for us. And thank you for being the creator of the medium I want to work with.
This was originally a backgroundless PNG design for ForHumanPeoples' Anime Week T-Shirt contest, back in mid-December. But since I flopped that task ('cause I suck at graphic design xD), I figured that the 9th of February would be the best time to post this up.
ALL HAIL THE GOD OF MANGA!
