I am a Japanese pro wrestling fan, the handle name is "man man". This sentence translates Japanese into English with google translation, so there may be unnatural places and mistakes, but please read with a generous mind.
Japanese articles are here
Simply put, it is said that "I wrote the illustrations I painted with American wrestlers making T shirts", but I will briefly explain the overview. I am also quite surprised, but if you can say that SNS has something like this. Anyway, things start on July 7th this year.
On the 7 th of July, at the event "Wrestle Video Mania Grusome" in Shinjuku, we drank a lot of beer while watching the video of the wrestling
Event Description Page
It is an article of the event
On August 6, we have an event in Shibuya with Mr. Fumi Saito
It is an event page on August 6
After the event on July 7th, I was advised by Mr. Taka Nakayama, I drew a picture of Gym Nasty Boys and uploaded it to SNS.
They sent a message to the event and the audience was delighted
Gym Nasty Boys is a team team of Timmy Lou Retton and White Mike. Introduction video is here.
Timmy Lou Retton shows a simple action such as a side change which utilized the gymnast 's career, and White Mike pours a guest by flying. And a variety of rich combination techniques. It is a fun team of two cheerful Americans.
Mr.Taka Nakayama introduces two people in detail by blog. Their career, the opportunity to become a wrestler and so on.
Net magazine "Drop kick"
In the article I interviewed them and also describes the meaning of the good hand sign "Too Deep"
Mr. Taka Nakayama is the manager of a pro wrestling shop "FreeBirds". The shop page is here. American Indie Pro wrestling goods, DVDs are on sale a lot.
I drew a picture of Gym Nasty Boys and uploaded it to Twitter. Then I got a nice impression from Timmy Lou Retton.
This.... This is amazing. https://t.co/3GtEdV2h6w— Timmy Lou Retton (@TimmyLouRetton) 2018年7月21日
Mrs.Rika Nakayama who is a wife of Mr.Taka Nakayama who saw this tweet got a message from Twitter and this was also nice.
ジムナスティの2人は、WVMGで自分達の動画が流れたことについて、過去に恩師や友達、近所の人達から受け入れ難い言葉を沢山言われてきたけど、こうしてプロレスを頑張っていたら、日本で自分達が紹介される日が来たと喜んでいました。男マンさんのイラストも絶対嬉しいはず！！ https://t.co/11OPf7Hdyz— 『フリーバーズ』リカ中山 (@RIKA_FREEBIRDS) 2018年7月21日
I remembered a lot.
That I came to see the "Wrestle Video Mania Gruesome" from meeting with Mr"BadGuy” Nabe.
And thanks to Mr. Taka Nakayama 's recommendation to draw a picture, I got to the American prowrestler Gym Nasty Boys.
For me it was a moving story.
After that, I was relaxed peacefully.
But then! Surprisingly, DM arrived from me by Timmy Lou Retton!
We wanted to get your permission to use your drawnings for shirts.
I was too surprised!!
Although I understood the contents using google translation, the illustration uploaded to SNS has low resolution and high resolution data is necessary to print on T - shirt. I want to send data but I do not understand English.
I thought hard what I should do, I asked Mr. Taka Nakayama to consider the text and succeeded in sending data to Timmy Lou Retton by e-mail.
I was relieved, I found this tweet.
👉THOT OFF THE PRESSES 👌— The Gym Nasty Boys 👉👌 (@GymNastyBoys) 2018年7月26日
Our "Too Deep in 🇯🇵" shirts are here and ready for the streets.
Get them all weekend!
Neofight Pro in Voorhees NJ
M.U.S.E. in Atlanta GA
Much love and respect to @otokoman for the amazing artwork. pic.twitter.com/hXMkgPPKN5
I was surprised that T - shirt was made
in about 2 days after sending data.
Immediately the next tweet!
There are lots of color T-shirts!
Thus, one week after I drew an illustration in Japan, a strange incident occurred that my illustration was printed on a T - shirt and sold in the USA.
I think that this T - shirt will sell when they play the game, so please contact them if you want.
I also want to see their matches someday so I would like to buy a T - shirt at that time.
Someday you will get it live and direct!— Timmy Lou Retton (@TimmyLouRetton) 2018年7月21日
This is the explanation of the story. I have written long sentences. This happy incident cheered me up and raised my motivation to continue blogging and illustration from now on.
And I thank the following people.
Mr. Taka Nakayama and Mrs. Rika Nakayama who gave me the opportunity to draw a picture this time.
which is a member of "Wrestle Video Mania Grusome",Bad-Guy Nabe,DJ kyu-ko, Serachen-Haruyama , Sekai-no-PK, Tasogare-Bancho
Thanks to you we were able to experience a happy incident.
And finally, two of the Gym Nasty Boys. I am praying for the future success of Timmy Lou Retton and White Mike
