Time to break the (summer)break and what better occasion then the drawing challenge
could be the reason for it which will be hosted this weekend by our lovely and
incredibly creative Nadine aka tiny woolf!
So here I'm and I hope you had a fine summertime meanwhile....
Japan is our theme this weekend and what comes first to my mind is SUSHI cause
I'm a total sushi adict! But then after the impression that except of tsunami and fukushima
there is no big japanese experience in my mind it started to evoporate out of my mind
terms like cherry blossom, Samurai, martial arts, geisha, sake, kimono, Fuji, kyoto, anime,
mangas and so forth...
and legendary Akira Kurosawa and the crazy and in genious Yayoi Kusama!
And all this phantastic japanese pattern (see book above).
Here in Hamburg exsits a tradition since 1968 the japanese companies located in
the city thank Hamburg for their hospitality with a wonderful firework for the cerry blossom
festival. This is always wonderful and a exceptional firework and I nearly miss it every year - damn!
I realized that Japan is everywhere in our daily lifes and as my son was younger pokemons and digimons where
swamping our complete household, they where everywhere on plates, as plush animals, as film, as radioplay, mugs.......
I have to admit I liked them too because I thought that they where very creative funny creatures.
So for this dc I made a few collages illustrating japanese influences in our daily lives.
Of course my way, which means: don't take everything too serious ; )
Don't miss to go to Nadine's to see all the other entries to this wonderful theme!
