27 Oct Kamon – Tsukimori
A few years ago, I had already created a Kamon but I didn’t like it. I think it was because of my skills.. It is for this reason that I used the minimalist samurai head with the latter in the helmet! Today I present you the new while explaining the “history”.
Story for the Kamon’s Creation
I discovered Japan thanks to the anime who were on television and video games like many people of my generation. Then, I became interested about the Japanese culture more deeply and that’s what I like most today.
When I searched for a nickname for gaming and design, I mixed two passions – Video games and Japan – to find it and I was inspired by the Night Elves on Warcraft 3 (a species with whom I played a lot. It has special features at night and lives in the forest.)
In Japanese, Tsuki means Moon and Mori forest.
This is how I use this name for all my projects. And today I created this Kamon (Japanese heraldic badge) with a moon and a sakura blossom. The latter will gain importance thanks to my future projects.
For the creation of Kamon, I initially inspired by existing insignia such as Tokugawa and many others.
Then I tried to find an interesting combination by binding the moon and sakura blossom in a circle. After going on illustrator, I tried to create several flowers in one thanks to the symmetry.
That’s all ! Don’t hesitate to give your opinion in comment. In any case I took a lot of pleasure to immerse myself in this project and it allowed me to travel through the ages of Japanese history.
