The Land of Samurai
Tomorrow, I will be leaving for the Land of the Rising Sun, sushi, and (my favorite) samurai! I will spend two weeks in Japan and I hope to get a lot of sketching in. Hopefully I will be able to post a few pics and maybe some drawings.
This logo was a concept I did for a local high school. The colors had to be blue and orange and the mascot options were the Warriors and Wolves (they actually ended up going with the Wolverines, go figure). I wanted to do something different than the usual Native American kind of warrior, so why not a samurai? The similarity to Samurai Jack was not entirely intentional, but I think subconsciously it came out a bit too much. Oh well. But this would have looked really cool on a football helmet, eh?
