HANA is the continuity of Makoto, but not a sequel. Japan is still the main influence of this new project but in a different way. 

This time, I will use different techniques, Japanese ink, colour brush pen, white/golden pens  and calligraphy. Some illustrations will be colourful while others will stay close to traditional Japanese artworks, black and white or with a discreet colour touch.

The illustrations in this book will transport you to a more sensual universe. They will also be accompagnied by Japanese calligraphy; the energy used to create them will be more subtile and elegant, and yet, somtimes with a little something different or mysterious. 

Makoto was the maculine energy of Japan and Hana will be its feminine side.

THE BOOK

The book will be published in 2 versions: pocket and Deluxe. The realease is scheduled for September 2019. The book will include 2 languages: French and English, like for Makoto.

  • Pocket: 10x14cm, vertical. (cf Makoto pocket)
  • Deluxe: 15x21cm, vertical. (cf Stellar, Once Upon a Poem), printed on mat satin paper.

THE PERKS

Some parts of the perks will be shipped before the book release, like the postcards and also the snacks as their expiry date might be before Sept.

  • The HANA "early bird" perks include the book (pocket or Deluxe, pick up the perk you wish), and you will receive a postcard sent from Japan (Tokyo) in April.(8€ or 12€)
  • HANA pocket or Deluxe: If you don't wish to get the postcard or if the perks are sold out, just select one of these 2 perks. (8€ or 12€)

Risks and challenges

The challenge will be to finish all illustrations and calligraphy on time. Many illustrations are painted.
I didn't fix a total amount to create, I will stop when I feel that the project is complete.
(check the video to have a sneak peek)
The calligraphy part will be the most difficult as I want them to express the energy of their meaning, including my artistic sense and at same time keeping a good balance of the final result.
The reason why I put some months between this campaign and the release date, is that in the summer I will have more time to finalise the project, focus on last details etc.
