Now, studying for Zoology exam (and making a series of linos based on a “study guide” of the scientific classification or taxonomy of animals in this class. I think). More on this soon, as I have to draw them out today!
(1797-1861) Japanese artist working in the Edo period.
Working out an outline for art history paper about Kuniyoshi. Check out the google image search. Doesn’t get much better than this for woodcuts (although he didn’t actually do the cutting, he did the drawing–he was “the artist” …so yeah, he had amazing woodcut carvers at his disposal). His imagination and draftmanship and sense of fun are out of this world. His drawing ability just blows me away. Sooooo inspiring.
Octopus Games, 1840-42
