———-This is the first t-shirt of the freakz brand, okay?
Yes, the first thing I need is a logo T-shirts, right?
A simple logo T-shirts is the most popular for any band.
That’s why I made the first one.
———-Who made the logo?
At first, I was thinking of outsourcing the logo, but then I wanted to make my own logo that would match the world of my work.
So I got Adobe Illustrator and bought a beginner’s book to learn how to use it.
Unlike music, I’m a complete amateur when it comes to illustration.
———-You’re very challenging.
I like to do everything myself.
The first thing I did was to draw a rough sketch on a piece of paper with a pencil.
You know what they say about people who are sarcastic, “they’re the ones who eat people.” in Japan.
I think there’s a lot of that in my lyrics, so I wanted to express that in the logo as well.
———-Yeah, that’s why you designed it that way.
However, the first cannibal logo I made was a bit irritating.
I didn’t think I could use it in every situation.
So I followed lacquer artist Cotone Amano’s advice and painted it black.
I think I was right in her advice, as it adds a mysterious flavor to the work.
———-Does it come in different colors?
This t-shirt is simply a black Freakz logo printed on the chest, and it’s only available in white.
Most band t-shirts are black, so I’m a bit of a contrarian.
