Cocksec Mosquito Coils
A few more pages from my sketchbook.
The view of the mountains from the cafe in Kamiyama.
Hanging fusuma-e screens backstage at the Sakura puppet theater.
Akebi. A fruit that reminds me of a slimy worm full of seeds, slightly sweet. The pod can be an unbelievable purple like a wisteria and very velvety.
Persimmons started to appear at the Michi No Eki farmer’s market. Chestnuts are everywhere.
Today I drove to Tokushima City and ate at one of those cheap sushi places that look like diners at home with booths and the plates of food come around on conveyor belts. My favorite now is scallop sushi but scallops are not very interesting to draw so I did these little shrimps instead which I also like.
This beautiful box of mosquito coils has been sitting on my windowsill for a month now and every day I looked at it thinking: “one day I’ll draw this”. Today around 3 am I finally got to it. That’s when I noticed that it’s called COCKSEC MOSQUITO COILS. Beautiful.
