32. Chris Horishiki Brand - Dog Fight
This piece shows the third and the fourth heroes to be completed in the story 108 Heroes of Los Angeles. Shown here are the two heroes – Padre and the Peacock – sparring together in the street. Padre, like many heroes in the story, is a fugitive on the run from the law. He’s a powerful and honorable man, although his rough personality and fondness for drinking often make him unaware of his strength. It is because of this, that he accidentally killed a butcher that had been abusing a woman. It only took three punches to kill the man.
Shortly after this incident, he skipped town, shaved his head and beard, and disguised himself as a priest. The Peacock is a wealthy young man who is a champion boxer. He is known throughout the city for help in the community, and for flaunting his peacock tattoos, and cruising in his beautiful low-rider. Eventually he is implicated in a crime he had nothing to do with, and is forced to join with the 108 Heroes. Both go on to become high-ranking leaders.
