It’s taken Masashi Teshima seven years (and the equivalent of $121,000) to build his Akira bike and while it’s not the only such project, it’s the only one to get Otomo’s official stamp of approval. Teshima’s cross-country ride—during which he’s raising money for autism research—will terminate in Tokyo, where it’ll then be displayed at an “art of Katsuhiro Otomo” exhibition.
We have a life-size Dalek model in the front of the office, and he just said:
“That’s a Dalek. But you REALLY should know that! This is NOT obscure. It’s the most powerful evil thing there ever was.”
He is the wisest man.
