Smile: Pray For Japan

08/19/11  |  Posted by Niki Smith  |  Posted in Digital Creativity

After the catastrophic earthquakes earlier this year, Japanese comic artist Takehiko Inoue started drawing a of portraits using only his finger and an iPad as a gesture of support for the victims. All proceeds go towards the relief funds. These breathtaking and touching illustrations were created as a gesture of support for the victims of the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami. Inoue and VIZ Media will donate the proceeds from these purchases directly to the Japanese Red Cross Society to aid victims in the areas ravaged by the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami. You can help out by buying a selection of his images through or by purchasing them through the VIZ Manga App. The files will sync to your account, so you can view them online anytime. They're a great inspiration for what you can do when drawing on your iPad screen.
