Thank you for visiting my profile, and thank you especially if you have purchased my work. I wish I could thank you each individually, and get to know something about you, but Red Bubble doesn’t seem to have a way for me to connect to you directly. Even when you leave me a message, it’s usually identified as coming from an “anonymous” customer. But let me assure you that every purchase and every message is precious to me. These days I am most active on Instagram and Facebook, and you can find me by searching for “dosankodebbie.”

Etegami is a traditional Japanese folk art that combines thoughtful words with simple images painted on washi postcards. Most of my etegami are painted with sumi ink and traditional Japanese water-soluble pigments called gansai.

See more of my Etegami at http://etegamibydosankodebbie.blogspot.com where I often discuss the cultural background and the tools I use for each piece.

Whether you are interested in a purchase or not, go ahead and take a look. They ship directly from my workshop …
