Tintin in Japan Cover Illustration Commission

Tintin in Japan Book Cover

This is the 3rd Tintin book cover inspired poster I’ve created starring my client, his wife, their dog and their new baby.

Not many Tintin books (by Hergé– real name Georges Prosper Remi) took place in Japan so it took a bit of imagining to work out how Hergé would have drawn and colored Mt. Fuji, a samurai and the clothes necessary for this scene based on my client’s recent trip to Japan.

Some work in progress images. The first shows some of my reference material.

Detail of the samurai and the gardener:
