Comment from Grand Prize Winner Hiroyuki Morita

“I tried to express my interpretation of the character in a straightforward way, penciling it with high energy that is my distinctive style. It was fun to draw. It thrills me to think that a lot of people will see and wear my artwork on a T-shirt. Thank you!
