This piece was done for a few reasons. One is that it's a bit of a joke, and people either see the joke right away... or not. I had thought at one point to do this as a very LARGE drawing with a very GRAND background, but I'm glad I didn't, because it would have been largely a waste of time since not everyone gets it. This was a fun piece and personally I nailed exactly what I wanted to show. Confused? Shamos are fighting bird of Japanese origin. They don't come in that color. That color is the American Bald Eagle. Shamos are often likened to eagles or other birds of prey. Get it? Cool huh? ;-)
