Every artist/designer has a muse. Mine is Sailor Moon (𝘭𝘪𝘬𝘦 𝘴𝘩𝘦 𝘪𝘴 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘮𝘢𝘯𝘺 𝘰𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘳𝘴). I may try to deny it, but Sailor Moon had always been my main source of inspiration.
I first met Sailor Moon/Usagi Tsukino when I was 6. I would wake up early every Saturday morning to watch her on TV. She was my first obsession. I knew everything about the show, the characters, the magic. My parents thought I would grow out of her as I grew up, but much to their surprise, I'm almost 30 and I still have her merch in my office.
Dad said, "You used to watch that Sailor Moon." Mom corrected, "She 𝘴𝘵𝘪𝘭𝘭 watches Sailor Moon."
I've come to terms on my love for Sailor Moon to not hide her in my work but to embrace her. She comes with a powerful message as well as a stellar aesthetic. I would be more than happy to pass that down to the next generation, to my daughter (𝘸𝘩𝘰𝘮 𝘐'𝘷𝘦 𝘶𝘯𝘥𝘰𝘶𝘣𝘵𝘦𝘥𝘭𝘺 𝘯𝘢𝘮𝘦𝘥 𝘓𝘶𝘯𝘢).
Did you grow up watching the show? Who was your favorite scout?
