JBBP Matsuri Art

Once again, under Yuki Morris’s direction, I was asked to create the artwork for Rosa Parks ロザーパークス JBBP 46th MATSURI Annual Celebration & Fundraiser booklet and poster.

The imagery is inspired by all the Japanese cultural events, holidays and arts & crafts that my children would bring home from school throughout their elementary years. I also wanted to include portraits of the school’s namesake, Rosa Parks and fellow civil rights activist Fred Korematsu.
