A new work focusing on organic elements. A journey into the
world of creation and destruction that is constantly occurring
within and around us.

A recent work that I did with a sunflower theme.
At first, I tried to stick with watercolor, then started pulling
out the other drawing materials. It’s found a new home now!

Solitary Tree

DSC_0055I’ve been asked to do an illustration including a tree, so I went down the road and did a quick watercolor of this tree out in the middle of some fields.

木が入ってるイラストを頼まれたなので、ちかくの畑の中央にある木の水彩画を描いた。

Kodama Shrine 興玉神社

DSC_0045The other day, my watercolor class and I did some painting at the local shrine. Even though it’s only about 5 minutes away from my house, it was the first time I’d ever been there. We all had a great day of painting. Here’s my work from the day.

先日、水彩画教室の生徒たちと、地元の神社で絵を描いていた。家から5分しかかからないのに初めて行った。皆頑張って描きました。これは、その日に私が描いた絵。

War

attack (800x639)let's mate and make war(800x642)some recent sketches. It seems the theme of war keeps on popping up in my work lately. I always find it depressing that with so many things in the universe trying to wipe us out of existence, cosmic rays, meteors, supernovas, earthquakes, tsunamis, you name it…we still find the need to add to these with our destructive nature.
