Promotional artwork  for Comic Art Tokyo (character Atsushi Kaneko/design BHP)

Hello,

We asked Atsushi Kaneko to create a character for our first poster/catalogue/staff t-shirts for the festival in July. He came up with the 'Cat Woman'.
We wanted to pay homage to GARO, an avante garde comic magazine from the 60-70s. The festival and it's organisers have close ties with GARO so we used the typeface and other features of the old Garo magazines to form the basis of the promotional design (Box Brown did something similar a couple of years back).

Anyway, we think it works.

There are no comments on this creation yet.
