I helped Yuriko Romer (www.flyingcarp.net) with the promotional items for her film documentary about Keiko Fukuda, by making the buttons and mirrors below. After giving up the conventional traditions of her Japanese Samurai-culture youth, Keiko made a lifelong commitment to judo. The film, due for release in 2012, chronicles her journey across 4 continents, 8 decades and 77 years to become the highest ranking woman in judo history. Today at 98, she is the last living connection to Jigoro Kano, judo's founder.
After I designed the templates for the buttons, mirrors and card holders, Monica Lee and I had them printed. Monica brought over her button and mirror maker and we spent the day making these for Yuriko's promotion at a Judo competition at San Francisco City College (10/15/2011). People who contribute to her film production will receive these buttons or mirror. She also had totebags and caps made with the calligraphy and titles.
