Divine Bow & Arrow


In 2014 I first drew a female character defeating a demon via bow and arrow for the Bristol Grapplethon. I decided to update the concept for a rashguard for my own Meerkatsu brand.

The Divine Bow & Arrow is a male and female fit rashguard and also a female only 3/4 length grappling tights.

They are all available at my store: www.meerkatsu.com

Here's more background to how I put it together:

The original bow and arrow T-shirt featured a female grappler wearing a BJJ gi. I wanted my new updated version to follow the pattern exhibited by my four other Japanese Lady style rashguards (Omoplata, Wristlock, Footlock and Kimura).


1. Line art I drew in 2014 for the original bow and arrow Grapplethon Tee

2. Flipped the image and rotated it more to my liking

3. Drew a new sketch using the 2014 drawing as a reference

4. Using Manga Studio and Illustrator, I created the colour version of this design. the peony flower background and elements feature widely across the design.


5. Final his and hers rashguard tops
