New painting in progress. I’ve had this idea of a chimp sitting on a Tiki in the middle of a Hurricane for some time and am just getting around to it. A fellow forum member over at Tiki Central shared this after seeing my sketch:
Riding out the storm reminds me of this story about Gichin Funakoshi, widely recognized as the father of modern Karate:
“One of the most famous stories about Master Funakoshi tells of a time when a typhoon struck his hometown. While everyone else hid and waited for the storm to end, master Funakoshi climbed onto the roof of his house and stood in the most powerful karate stance, to test his strength and determination against the storm.”
Maybe you can name him in honor of Gichin.
So I named him Koshi which I thought fit perfectly! Here’s the progress so far!
