My parents were highly enamored of the Southwest, and so I became kind of by default. My dad in particular was fond of Kokopelli, and drawings I have done of that legendary figure may appear here eventually.
One of the oldest "icons" of the Southwest is the serape-and-sombrero clad man napping at the foot of a saguaro cactus. So, when a friend proposed the idea of a Southwestern ninja named "Ninjito," I couldn't resist giving the old standard a new twist.
That guy in the serape and sombrero? Totally not napping.
