- Story behind this design -
In 2016, we released the first-ever Bassment t-shirt with one of the images from Japanese manga "AKIRA" by the legendary Manga artist Otomo Katsuhiro. "Akira Tee" was the statement of how Bassment was about to change the local music scene.
Last few years, We've been wanting to do a new design that follows the aesthetic and legacy of the "Akira Tee" design. We had no intention to reprint the first design because of the legal reasons and those images are used by so many other brands since we released them in 2016 (Supreme did their one a year after ours). So We started looking Japanese Manga artist who can draw for Bassment.
After numerous attempts searching and contacting a number of Manga artists in Japan, We finally found the 'one'.
Akira Miyagawa is a multi-award-winning professional Japanese Manga artist from Osaka, Japan. He is well known for highly influenced by Otomo's style and has amazing skills in mechanical and action drawings.
This design has a concept of 'supporting local artists'. We are a group of different genders, races, (..or robots? lol) and we are all one in this community. And we wanted to send a message to encourage people to give a hand and help others.
The logo is designed by the one and only, Guccimaze from Tokyo.
