After hearing 'Mission' from Lupe Fiasco and rewatching 'Akira' I designed this image above. It depicts a small girl, a cancer patient who paints through her pain. The colours that make up Lupe's face are inspired by Tetsuo's mutation in the film version of the Manga. His face, a nod to the more personal subject matter, the missing piece not yet painted is the outline of Chicago. The final references to Akira come in the form of the treatment bag that bears the character's name and organ within the treatment and the pill design on the patient's gown.
