Amazing handmade postcards
Along with the cards was another etegami he had painted of a Japanese Jomon clay figure, these figures are from a time in Japan's prehistory and are evidence of an ancient culture. What I like about his work is that they are obviously done by a man and show a strong character.
I have tried to use the paper with limited success, the texture is quite strong, my poor Kangaroo looks a little like a weasel! Did I mention before that he makes the paper from grasses?
I hope my Japanese friends can understand the pathetic pun.
My dear Mum is still in hospital and I am afraid the effort of going in every day and the stress of seeing her in pain is telling on me. I do hope I am not heading for another 'tune-up' in hospital myself. That would be inconvenient to say the least.The Prof. is as usual doing a great job of holding the fort, he is not allowed to get sick!
