Watchers

Groups

This feeling when you have a chance to throw some money at someone to draw for you but:

-> You can't afford to pay the artist you like
-> The artist you like and can afford isn't available
-> All the artists you can afford, but whose art you dislike

Guess I'll save up in hope the "like and can afford" option becomes available 
Or any recommendations anyone?

LOL XD

Forget-me-not Comb
The first from a series called Kwiaty Polskie (Flowers of Poland) which is meant to be a photobook. Call it a side project, or maybe a personal project (the book isn't going to be for sale, it's rather something I really want to do). It's a collection of tsumami kanzashi inspired by Polish meadow and wild flowers. 

Will be updating <3

Sakura Comb
Spring! Thought outside the window there's rain and fog, I officially consider spring has started. And that's because in April thoughts, hearts, parks and on heads of the maiko reigns Her Majesty, the Sakura.

Sakura is a widely recognizable and emblematic symbol of Japan, seen on everyday objects, including kimonos, stationery, and tableware.

Cherry Blossom is often used as a metaphor for the fragile nature of life and often appears in Japanese art. Japanese pilots painted it on their planes before taking on a suicide mission, believing that the souls of the fallen warriors would reincarnate as flowers.

Today - fortunately - it is associated with beauty and joy. Every year, the Japanese follow Sakura-Zensen, which is " Cherry Blossom front ". Together with friends and families, they go to parks and for Hanami (花見), meaning "flower viewing " - picnics, often accompanied by with listening to traditional music and dancing.

And today, I want to show you the sakura that has bloomed in my workshop. The subtle baby-pink petals are surrounded by delicate, opening buds.

April is here.

Plum Blossom 2017
A rinzu (damask) silk ume pin. Ume are a typical February motif worn by maiko in Japan. 

While most popular ones are big single, multi-layered flowers or clusters of tiny blossons this time I did a "miwa". Miwa are flower triplets, and mine has some fine details like tiny branches.
