I'm not a smoker but there have been some pretty key figures in my life who smoke and so I have this fascination with lighters. As has been the case with other lighters I've done, when I'm coming up with each specific design, I try to imagine two things: one, being electrified and/or somehow affected by knowing you have this very weird and singular totem in your pocket. it's in there, rubbing around, getting old, wearing and tearing, and you are forced to remember that every time you sit down. And two: what must it be like to be out somewhere and someone asks you for a light and you give them one and they see this lighter...what must that conversation be now?


If you've been following along, you were expectint this. In fact, this isn't the first lighter design I've devoted to a love for Neon Genesis Evangelion...nor is it the only piece of merchandise that I've made to express that fandom. My fondness for this design is really quite boundless: I love the obelisk design, I'm proud of the 2-color technique that Joe and I were able to get in the Therefore Sachiel face, and the Misato quote is, well, expertly dispensed, if I do say so myself. DARE PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND YOUR LIGHTER.
