Samurai ! by Carles Samurai ! by Carles
A pencil portrait of Mifune Toshiro, the favorite actor of japanese director Kurosawa Akira. Even people who do not know Kurosawa have heard at least of one of his movies: Seven Samurai (released in 1954). In that movie as in many others, Mifune impersonated the character who made his fame, and who was probably closest to his own self: a seemingly nonchalant samurai, quick to drink and recite poems under the moon, yet driven by a sense of probity and honor as sharp as his sword, and a courage as swift as the arm that holds the blade.

Here is to Mifune !

Désolé de mon silence, à bientôt peut-être ?

Je n'ai pas trop l'occasion d'aller à Paris pour l'instant (à part pour les vacances de Noël, mais pour le coup j'ai vraiment grand besoin de repos donc je pense pas que je vais sortir).
Mais en tout cas je continuerai à suivre ta galerie ^^
