kimi to iu hana

for miming

what’s with me and umbrellas? hahaha. inspiration came when my iTunes started blasting kimi to iu hana, a song by asian kung fu generation, for the nth time and then i heard it… again. “shiro i iki ga kireru made…” ayun, somehow the linguist in me became bffs with my typographer side… gaki is miming’s other name, and there’s the article ga plus the word ‘kireru’ which means violent reaction. well, di naman siya violent pero sobrang energetic… so pwede na rin. nyahaha.

the font is called bleeding cowboys. it has some pretty swirls in it but i had to remove the bleeds. i also had lots of fun with the film grain effect… wan to sawa! hahaha!  the brushes are from mouritsada. thank you po, sir! at dahil import si miming from japan at masyadong girly ang cherry blossoms… absolutely no geishas, ok? lolz.  japanese umbrellas or wagasa seemed perfect. it’s strong and beautiful and practical… just like miming. oha oha!

yun lang.
