Warrior Spirit / Martial

This is the character 武 which can be translated as "warrior spirit" but is also the "martial" from terms like "martial arts". In some ancient contexts, it can mean military or military arts. This character is pronounced "Wu" in Mandarin Chinese and "Bu" in Japanese.

My Little Experiment

New Print Scrolls Hanging

A new batch of printed calligraphy scrolls, hanging in the studio, awaiting proper photography.

I felt like messing around with doing some giclée print calligraphy with various backgrounds. I came up with some layouts that I really like, and passed them around with my Chinese and Japanese friends who gave them rave reviews.

After giclée printing them on Japanese-made kozo paper, I sent the raw artwork off to Beijing to my workshop where they were built into wall scrolls by hand.
