Sumo wrestlers

 

 

I was reading about corruption in sumo wrestling lately. This 1000-year old tradition has been loosing fans over the years. In 1996 two former sumo wrestlers died in the same hospital. Coincidence?
This happened the day before a press conference in which they wanted to come forward with allegations on match rigging, ties to the mafia (Yakuza), gambling, drug use… The police decided not to investigate their deaths.
The idea incubated and out came these drawings:
