Meerkatsu Brand: Super Jiu Jitsu and Armbar Artworks, Kawaii themed t-shirts 2019

I've designed two new T-shirts for sale at my store over on www.meerkatsu.com
Both were inspired by the Japanese obsession with all things 'kawaii' (cute).

More photos and some explanation:

Super Jiu-Jitsu, the Japanese text beneath the title translates as: cross knee guard pass. The Japanese text at the very bottom translates as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

This t-shirt is 50% cotton and 50% polyester.

Sleeve design combines all the text elements. It's inspired by 'Japanglish' products in Japan that use random English words mainly for visual design effect rather than information.

The text along the right side reads: Ude-Hishigi-Juji-Gatame (腕挫十字固)
The text along the left reads ju do 柔道
The logo at the base is my own name in Chinese: 楊 蜀望
The text at the very top: kansetsu-waza 関節技, joint techniques
The text beneath the word ARMBAR reads: Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

The main theme behind the tee designs are to mimic the way Japanese (and Chinese) graphic design often use English words out of context - so called Japanglish. I’ve done the same, but in reverse. All the text I’ve used relate to bone ride Judo and Jiujitsu techniques
