A series of three personal illustrations with handmade lettering, inspired by Japanese icons.
This series features historical and mainstream Japanese icons, which are treated with a graphical approach similar to branding. Influenced by Japanese character design and traditional minimalist art, I created an identity containing several designs.The character subjects are very stylized and combined with handmade lettering.
The message creates an extra dimension to contrast the original meaning of each subject.
