Go over to where I’ve posted a link to the gallery of a fascinating young Japanese artist. She’s redoing the definition of “Yamato Nadeshiko,” which is long overdue. I explain more about it over there. An anime-like aesthetic with political import, and just plain cool, to boot.

Posted by Dindrane on October 18, 2007 in art |

Sharing my art is very hard for me, as it is for many people, because I am friends with what I call “real artists,” whose work is far and away better than mine; I try to remember that they are further along their life path as artists–for personal reasons, I never made much art as […]
