"It wasn’t our fault!!"
Dirty Pair (the original 80’s anime and the 90’s comic book adaptation by Adam Warren) was a massive influence on me when I started reading manga (Japanese comics) in the 90’s. This is a recent illustration I’ve made of Kei and Yuri using inks and pencils. The original series was by written by Haruka Takachiho and illustrated by Yoshikazu Yasuhiko, later published in English by Studio Proteus and Dark Horse Comics.
Backstory… “In the years 2138-43, humanity has spread across some few thousand star systems. The World Welfare Works Association (also WWWA or 3WA) helps member systems of the United Galactica (UG) federation deal with various planetary-scale problems, for profit, by sending agents called “trouble consultants”. The most high-profile arm is called the Criminal Investigations section. The show focuses on a team of trouble consultants in that section, named Kei and Yuri, who have a reputation for leaving a trail of destruction behind them, for which they are known publicly as the “Dirty Pair”.”
This listing is for two (2) original sketches, each on a piece of cardboard, measuring 29.7m x 21cm (UK A4 size). This listing is for both illustrations pictured.
No copies have been made of this illustration (only photographs taken for online reference) so you will be purchasing an original, one-of-a-kind piece of artwork for yourself or as an oldskool gift for friend or family.
