Friends are Just Enemies Who Don’t Have the Guts to Kill You


During the 70’s & 80’s, Japan started putting out a lot of movies featuring delinquent girl bike gangs & torturous yakuza chicks. The chick in this sketch is kind of a nod to those. Pills in one hand, bloodied bat in the other. The kanji on the arm band is some of the only kanji I remember from my high school bullshit nerd otaku days. I was gonna draw a bike, but I ran out of time. One of those fancy Japanese custom ones a la Burst City. Like the hair & the torso; but everything else in this one didn’t quite work for me. Oh well. There’s always tomorrow.

    I think the little details on this are pretty rad though. The tiny bandaid, the neck scarf. Nothing seems overdone and *just* delinquent enough, if that makes any sense at all.

    Thanks! It does make sense. That weird subtle fine line between looking respectable & yet still able to fuck shit up.
