Artist's Description

The inspiration for this etegami comes from a silly poem titled “An Alphabet,” by the great English nonsense poet Edward Lear (1812 – 1888).

Etegami is a traditional Japanese folk art that combines simple hand-painted images with thoughtful words. The outline and words were made with sumi ink and a bamboo quill pen. The color was added with a natural-fiber brush pen and water soluble mineral-based paint blocks called gansai. It was done on a soft washi card.
