I have always loved Blossom Trees and find the Japanese ones to be my favourite.
I found the word "Sakura" and its rough translation "Japanese flowering cherry blossom"
I hope this is correct - If not then please let me know and I will amend it.
The inspiration for this piece came from my site redesign where I created blossom branches as part of my site and decided to give them minimalist leaves to compliment my site design.
I liked it and decided the branches deserved a full tree and a piece of their own, so I made this piece this morning. Each individual leaf was placed by myself
After designing my Global warming piece I have decided I like this minimalist/I guess vector (made in photoshop though) style and I will be experimenting with it further in the future.
Hope you like it.

After feedback in the comments section of this project I made a Blue and green alternate background scheme for Ricky Gui. Also after private feedback from Yee Von Chan I made a cream coloured background version too.
Hope you like them.
