Contemporary. Various Sizes. Acrylic gouache, ink, marker and watercolor on white paper. Vibrant and brilliant colors. Item #107
Six hand drawn graphic characters. With one exception, all figures with titles or names. All characters are finished, with "Tea Woman" having two images on the page, one in sketched development. One untitled character with dress and appearance as a "mystic". Although these illustrations are unsigned, the characters appear to have been contemporarily drawn since the paint used liberally, acrylic gouache, is a recent development in illustrator's paint. The characters are drawn more closely to Japanese Manga, however, the lettering on the Tea Woman's kimono is closer to that of Chinese as if the artist is freely borrowing across Asian histories both ancient and modern. Expertly drawn mysterious figurative characters in excellent condition.
