Hokusai – part 1

“To draw a bird, you should become one”.


Sketching at the great retrospective of Hokusai’s woks in Martin-Gropius Bau in Berlin.
There are artist’s sketchbooks (Hokusai Manga), his most famous woodprints (36 view of Fudji) and very interesting less known works.

What an amazining diversity of techniques, themes, styles and.. names! Iitsu, one year old again, is my favourite.
