This is in memory of my grandmother. Originally I was going to draw her and my grandfather together (as horses obviously cause I don't draw peoples) but this is what it developed into. We weren't able to finish the 1000 cranes for her, I think we are at 700? But we will be finishing them for the funeral. The horse's name is Eve, after my grandmother Evelin. The kanji means "peace".

DO NOT STEAL. DO NOT USE THIS CHARACTER DESIGN IN ANYWAY. THIS IS NOT FOR USE OUTSIDE DA. IF I FIND THIS ANYWHERE I WILL HUNT YOU DOWN AND EAT YOUR BABIES! Seriously, this is in memory of my grandmother, so don't steal it.


Eve (c) my Grandma

No reference for horse, used google images and my own origami for references on the cranes.

The fact that this is so deep makes it even more wonderful. Beautifully titled, skillfully drawn and laid out, it's wonderful.

And gives me another reason to hate cranes ... they mean death to me, and that's that.

But even so, it's a touching and masterfully colored piece.

I love how you have the birds coming to life from the origami cranes, eventually becoming that single horse cantering towards the light :)
