Quick Blurb

I'm Shinrin Sam. Bros and an artist, photographer and mangaka. Ronin Yoshino is my original manga series.


Ronin Yoshino is inspired by ukiyo-e, nature, animals, archeology and folklore. A beautifully illustrated, exciting and captivating original story of heroes, fantasy and adventure!

Skills and Techniques

Ronin Yoshino is drawn by hand with pencils and pens on paper and finished on a computer. First, I write the script and storyboarding. Next it's edited, sketched and inked by hand on an artograph. Then it's scanned into Manga Studio EX to be finalized - panels, screentones and text. Then entire process takes approximately 3-6 months to complete a 24-40 page chapter.
