  1. That is some great work. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Thanks for posting these! They've all got such a palpable, haunting kind of atmosphere.

  3. Some of these illustrations look like they could be illustrating the stories of Kenji Miyazawa, who is like the Lewis Carrol or Hans Christian Anderson of Japan (not that his writing is like theirs, but that he fits into the same niche of beloved national writer).

    They are incredibly beautiful illustrations, thankyou for bringing them to our attention

  4. i am SO inspired - thank you so much for finding these ... i grew up in tokyo walking by a mural of his all the time.

  5. wow, these are great.

    thanks for sharing your finds.
