So I have been totally awed and saddened by the events in Japan and pissed by some of the fanatic rhetoric coming from some cray-cray muthasmurfers (my term for crazy) that seems to be heaped up on the people of Japan.
I was doing some brush work practice. And found myself doing some sketches inspired by the tsunami. These were done more stream of consciousness with no plan in mind but I was pleased with the result.
Of the batch I did there were the only two that made any kind of sense. I did a little clean up and included a Basho Poem in Photoshop.
As they begin to rise again
Chrysanthemums faintly smell,
After the flooding rain
Hope you like.
