The 37th view of Mount Fuji

I went to Hawaii this past weekend for the Eddie Aikau Big Wave Contest. I didn't win.
I also stopped by the Honolulu Academy of the Arts. They were having a special display of Ukiyoe woodblock prints from Hokusai and HIroshige, including all 36 prints in the 36 views of Mt. Fuji series. You might not know the series by name but you have probably seen the images.

When I got back to Los Angeles, I was inspired to draw my own view of Mr. Fuji. So here is the 37th view of Mt. Fuji. It's not a wood block print. It was done with gouache and scrap paper. I'm the person in the back of the airplane, in row 37 seat E. If you look closely, you can see that I am playing sudoku. You have to look really, really closely.

Also, here is a video of the raw footage of the giant waves at Waimea bay on December 7th 2009.
