Yahoo! PurpleScape tanukiprocession detail 2

Yahoo! PurpleScape project. This will be on limited edition Playstation 3’s, Tees, stickers, postcards, and other promotional stuff. Inspired by the annual processions that Daimyo warlords had to make to the capital in Edo (aka Tokyo) to pay homage to the Shogun in Feudal Japan. I made this into a fun affair though. Instead of Ninjas blowing poison darts they blow bubbles. Instead of flying the clan flags they are flying goldfish windsocks, a symbol of Children’s day in Japan. Instead of a warlord there is a tanuki (mythical mischeivious racoon creature) on the throne.
