Cubist Geisha Bag by characterundefined Cubist Geisha Bag by characterundefined
I decided to give this contest a shot and came up with this Geisha design. Cubism is a deceptively difficult style, especially if you aren't used to working in it. I chose a geisha as my subject because I thought it would translate well to the Cubist style due to their limited color palette and subtle movements. Capturing the grace and beauty of the geisha in a 2D format is usually very difficult, but Cubism afforded me more opportunity to explore the essence of the geisha and not get bogged down just in how they look visually.

Will you please help me reach the top 100 entries by voting for this design?

That could actually be pretty cute on a bag, I think. It's very nice, and I think(while I don't understand everything about cubism) you did a good job depicting the geisha in a cubist form! You have the subject represented from different angles and different aspects of the geisha... essence? I guess? Anyways, it's pretty nice!

Cubism is a really tough nut to crack. From what I can tell however, you first have to have a classically-trained mind, and then you have to shut it off and work from your "primitive" brain. In that order. At least, this is always the impression I got from Picasso.

But thank you! I'm glad that you like it!

To be honest I don't know much about cubism. But from what I've learned through the contest it really is quite tough. From what I've gathered I would say it's about representing the essence as a whole. And also portraying a subject from different views and creating depth and for that it takes a willingness to look at a subject from more than one point of view and yeah I really don't know a whole lot about it. ._. The contest was a learning experience(and kinda fun, for me anyways) though!

And you're welcome! It really is a nice design!

I like the idea of a Geisha and the style, especially the crosslines.
What I dont like so much are the colors. I dont dislike them, but I would prefer a clean red/white black combo.

Interesting mix of cubism (a multidimentional perspective art with slightly fluid movement) and ukiyo-e (the traditional inked japanese art, with fine detailed textures). The use of the gray base color of the bag like as the fifth color, is an intrepid move. Well Done.
