As promised, here's the entry about Taku that I really wanted to post. I also discovered that TAKAFUMI wrote a small entry related to Taku, so I'll post that one first.
TAKAFUMI (UNDER CODE staff) *One year- 2011-12-10
A lot of time has passed in an instant.
- What can change over one year?
- Is it possible to grow a little?
Is one able to change?
Our lifetime is limited
Let's do our best
OKAMURA (UNDER CODE graphic designer) *Draft Hour: Mourning Edition- 2011-12-10
Today, December 10th, marks exactly one year since Taku of HEISEI ISHIN passed away.
The time passed quickly.
Taku would occasionally send me images of design ideas,
- drawn roughly by himself;
- I still have many of these sketches left.
I'd been asked to post them at this blog,
- but because of his death,
- I couldn't bring myself to do it for a long time.
But since today is the 1st anniversary of his death, in memorial to Taku, I want to finally exhibit them.
I consulted with HEISEI ISHIN leader Yoshi and got permission to do so.
Taku would make the rough sketch → take a picture with his phone → mail it to me
- As per this procedure, in the images below, you're seeing Taku's hand at work.
By seeing this work, I hope that you'll remember him.
- 2009-07-29 release maxi-single 「Ruru -Ruru-」
- 2009-11-18 release mini-album 「PUBLIC SENTIMENT」
- seems to be a rough idea for the cover
- Advertisement photoshoot idea for Prism.
- this one seems to have been drawn for the cameraman
- It was used for the cover.
Taku, may you find peace in Heaven.
