Gijinka #1: Starbucks "Hoshi"

It seems people are really getting into making gijinka (personification) of restaurants, cafes, and even drugstores lately. I thought I might as well give it a try while I still have a bit of time in my hands~ I also needed an excuse to draw more bishounen in suits so there..!

Meet Hoshi, my version of Starbucks!

  • his name means "star" in Japanese
  • pronounced slightly differently, his name sounds like the term for "want" in Japanese
  • always up to date with what the kids are into despite his age
  • people think he has trendy white hair, but actually, he's so stressed out because his customers always asking for bizarre, personalized drinks
  • very good at memorizing those bizarre, personalized drinks
  • quietly spites you by spelling your name wrong
  • always smiling despite feeling the absolute need to throw your coffee to your face

I was a bit torn with his hair color... The wavy patterns on the logo can be interpreted as either green or white hair, but I wanted him to look trendy, so I gave him white hair.

After drawing this, however, I realized he kinda looks like Shinomiya Natsuki from Uta no Prince-sama, AHAHA!

Anyway, are gijinka supposed to be original characters, or fan arts? Or both? Hm...
