I’m a big fan of Japan and all of their history. I’ve done many t-shirts for clients that like Japanese style so I decided make one available for RB. This is a real samurai mask that I saw some time ago in Rome at the museum of Japanese art. I kept a picture of it in mind so that in future I could do a design of it. The ideograms from top to bottom mean: strengh, bravery, determination, resolution and resoluteness. They also come from a photo of a Japanese artist’s work that I took at the same museum. The red is a reminder of the flag of Japan. The design was done first with Illustrator and then with photoshop.
