illustration friday (sink)


Some recent summer-themed etegami from Carole Marshall "down-under" in Australia, inspired me to turn one of my earlier cicada etegami into a collage for this week's Illustration Friday post. The accompanying words are my translation of a haiku by Matsuo Basho (1644 – 1694).

  9. Ohhhh, what a lovely, calming poem & image. Just what I needed on this frantic day. I especially love the way the ink of the lettering sinks gently into the paper... perfect!

  10. You have snow for six months!!!???? Oh my goodness. Snow is beautiful when it covers the ground but when it turns to slush, so dirty and ugly. Oh gee. I think my bones will hurt from the cold. Hehehe. I used to live in New Jersey. I love snow but don't want to live in it, just visit. I hope you are having a wonderful holiday season. Merry Christmas! Tsup!!!
