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?

Thanks so much for the comments! (I really need to update my blog - but my wacom isn't functional right now - and my digital camera barely is) I can tell you found me through Sarah! :)
Well my school has the Warriors as a mascot -- the traditional Native American thing -- I personally would totally prefer a Samurai instead! This needs to be suggested to my school!

I remember you working on this but I never saw it. Glad you posted it! That would have been an awesome logo, silly people not picking it.

Have fun in Japan! I demand 1000 pullips! Ha ha!
