My Inbox: pumpkin and sunflower from Tatsuaki

Today I feature two lovely etegami I got from Tatsuaki in Japan. I love his traditional etegami style — I try to emulate his use of while spaces. Now, with these two, I see I have some new inspiration — foregoing the use of sumi to outline the images and just rely on the gansai entirely for the images.

The first one says “I love cold pumpkin soup!”

The second is more difficult for me to translate, but I would say “A smiling, happy face, turning toward the sun.”image
