Etegami (e= "picture"; tegami= "letter/message") are simple drawings accompanied by a few apt words. They are usually done on postcards so that they can be easily mailed off to one's friends. Though etegami has few hard-and-fast rules, traditional tools and materials include writing brushes, sumi ink, blocks of water-soluble, mineral-based pigments called gansai, and washi postcards that have varying degrees of "bleed." They often depict some ordinary item from everyday life, especially items that bring a particular season to mind.

Haha! I tried to come up with something related to this type of jump (but settled instead on a cute creature jumping). Beautiful yet unusual subject!ReplyDelete
I actually painted this recently to poke fun at my son who is addicted to coffee. It was pure coincidence that it happened to fit this week's prompt. ;pDelete
The harsh way!ReplyDelete

Hah - excellent drawing, nicely composed along with the lettering, and as a man in Scotland I help people out with these sparky things a lot. It also reminds me of an ageist adult joke which I will nor repeat here.ReplyDelete
