Illustration Friday: Sacrifice

I've been sitting in a trade booth in Atlanta since Thursday, and the last day is always the slowest. So I decided to give my computer a break from regular work, and I sketched up this week's Illustration Friday.

Serving a mission in Japan, I learned that the Japanese people are the most amazing people, ready to give the shirt off their backs at the drop of a hat. I just love that culture!
