„Anchor with Mt Fuji Ocean Waves Rising Sun Seagulls Rope Stripes“

from the gallery of Beverly Claire Kaiya

A nautical-themed design, in tones of marine blue, vermillion red and white. In the forefront is a “yojijukugo” or Japanese four-character idiom that says “tenkuukaikatsu” in Japanese. Literally, it means “open sky, serene sea”, indicating a vast expanse of air and water. In terms of personality it means someone who is magnanimous, a broad-minded person with a big heart. I had a fun time drawing each of the elements: anchor, heart, ribbon, rope, waves, Mt Fuji, seagulls, rising sun. A striped pattern at the bottom gives the design a modern look.
