I think was my trip to Tokyo+constant checkings on street fashion web sites like droptokyo, RIDSNAP, Japanesestreets, and others+a video on Tavuchi-san's blog that stirred up the inspiration for this character.
On Tavuchi's blog...There was a video that reminded me a lot of the old late 80's/early 90's cartoons that are now outdated, but many times had a "futuristic" theme. I think its really interesting to see era's from the past ideas of the future. Especially from that era. Maybe this is what originally gave me the idea that Tokyo was this futuristic-like city. Songs like "Mr. Roboto" from the Styx. Even games like Ducktales for the NES...Like this futuristc/outer-space level are inspriational!
One of my favorite things to draw on this image was the quilt skirt. I've seen a lot of that lately. I noticed in Tokyo that some of my favorite shops and shop owners were making things like raggedy old quilts that nobody wants in the states into something artistic, and creative.
