I wanted to show the Skyline of Tokyo, especially the Tokyo Tower as one might see it walking on the ground. Landmarks are always illustrated at eyelevel, however you can almost never see them like that. So yeah that's where the idea came from.
Your Swiss Army Knife 2018
Which place, city and country is featured in your design? (place/city/country)
Japan, Tokyo, Tokyo Tower
Describe why you have chosen this place as a visual? What story does your design tell?
Tokyo is a place I have wanted to visit all my life. I grew up watching anime and reading manga and when I got older I was hearing all these stories about the city as a design hot spot. Games, Fashion, Colours, Patterns, Culture... so many elements drag me to this one city and it's famous landmark and of all the plans I made on visiting it one day I always had the works of luck and was not able to see it yet.
