illustration friday (stir)
By this time you all know about the mega-quake that has devastated Japan. Many of you have asked after my safety. Thank you. I am safe. Heartsick, but safe. The disaster is far from over, and I don't really feel like writing about it. However, I was able to refer to the event in a series of Etegami collages. It even fits this week's IF theme.
In Japanese mythology, a giant namazu (catfish) causes earthquakes when he stirs in the mud beneath the earth. The more violently he thrashes, the more violent the earthquake.
