In fact, it is a picture of a famous Japanese singer who sang in an all girl pop group named SPEED during the mid to late 90s. Her name is Hiroko Shimabukuro. Hiro for short. Unfortunately, they disbanded several years ago. I recently found out they are back together and singing as SPEED. Freelance Union Article: 5 Tips for Preventing Procrastination.

Jet Grind Radio Logo

Recently, I've been using Adobe Illustrator to create some vector art. And, I've been a very big fan of Jet Grind Radio and Jet Set Radio Future for some years now. In my humble opinion, JGR was the best game created for the Sega Dreamcast. It took me several months to beat the game. Then I met a five year old who told me he beat it over night. I felt kinda embarrassed to say the least. That was when I went to play the JSRF demo. Unfortunately, I've only played a demo of JSRF and not the actual game but, from what I've seen of a walkthrough on YouTube I'm impressed. That's because I don't own an Xbox system. I'm a Nintendo fan because of the home-brew painting app for the Nintendo DS Lite and it's successor that was totally overhauled to run on the Nintendo 3DS gaming system. I told a close friend of mine I would start painting about one hundred and twenty paintings on my DS in a month's time. That didn't happen but, I've started the ball rolling in that I've started using it to create some art with it again. Hopefully, I'll get an Xbox during Black Friday or for Christmas. I just finished this little hommage to Jet Grind Radio using Adobe Illustrator to trace it and Adobe Photoshop to decrease the resolution to 72ppi. Later, I may create some desktop backgrounds for my desktop and post low rez versions of them here. Looking and listening to those walkthroughs have brought back a lot of really great memories. : )

I do not own any rights to Jet Grind Radio, Jet Set Radio Future or any of graphical designs created by their respective creators. Smilebit created both games for Sega. I'm not sure who owns these two intellectual properties now.]
