Etegami painting of a cricket accompanied by a quote from the Emily Dickinson poem “The Cricket Sang.” Materials used for this piece are sumi ink, gansai paints, and absorbent washi cardstock. The drawing tools I used are a bamboo quill pen and a natural fiber Japanese coloring brush. This image is included in my ALL CREATURES GREAT AND SMALL calendar: LINK TO CALENDAR HERE

I am a professional Japanese-to-English translator and an Etegami artist. Etegami is a traditional Japanese folk art that combines thoughtful words with simple images painted on washi paper.
