Hiroshi Yoshida was a 20th century Japanese painter and print-maker. He is regarded as one of the greatest artists of the shin-hanga style of ukiyo-e woodblock printing, and is noted especially for his excellent landscape prints. Yoshida travelled widely, and was particularly known for his images of non-Japanese subjects done in traditional Japanese woodblock style, including the Taj Mahal, the Swiss Alps, the Grand Canyon, and other National Parks in the United States.

Fujiwara no Sadaie 藤原定家 (1162-1241)

Fujiwara no Sadaie 藤原定家 (1162-1241) ou Fujiwara no Teika.

Poète de waka 和歌, critique, calligraphe, romancier, anthologiste, scribe, et érudit vers la fin de l'époque de Heian 平安時代 (794-1185) et le début de l'époque de Kamakura 鎌倉時代 (1185-1333). 
l'un des plus grands poètes et peut-être le plus grand maître de la poésie waka.

Voici quelques poèmes :

Sur nos manches immaculées
au moment de la séparation
tombe la rosée [de nos larmes de sang]
tandis que souffle un vent d'automne

Illustration du poème  : “true feelings” by Kitagawa Utamaro 喜多川歌麿  (1753-1806).

Tout bien réfléchi
la voûte céleste
n'a point de nuance particulière

et c'est bien la clarté de la lune
qui fait [la couleur de] l'automne

Illustration du poème :  Ukiyo-e style Ghibli prints, based on the art of Kawase Hasui.

Le pont flottant de mes songes
en cette courte nuit de printemps
s'est interrompu ;

du sommet de la montagne s'écartent
de longs nuages dans le ciel.

Illustration du poème : “Sanjo Bridge Kyoto” by Hashiguchi Goyō 橋口五葉 (1880-1921).

Finished up the color work on my Pokemon Shinto Shrine fan art! It was a pretty complicated and detailed piece to color and the lighting plan took some thought and refining to establish, but I think I hit the tranquil yet mysterious mood I was going for. I took inspiration from the shin-hanga movement which succeeded ukiyo-e in the style and colors. I’d like to do more scenes like this in the future!

@reyloweek Thursday Oct. 20 = AU Day

Obviously, this is a 19th century Japan AU. Last time I drew passionate Rey, now it’s Kylo’s turn to be emotional.

I wished to draw ukiyo-e style Rey and Kylo the moment I saw the movie, and was a little bit disappointed to find out this obvious idea had already been executed. Well, hope you like my version too. 

A gift for @ewanotsoyoungadult - I wouldn’t have found out about Reylo week without you!

I also tag this picture as inktober, though I draw by hand all the time, never managed to master drawing with a tablet.

The designer Takato Yamamoto was born in 1960 in Akita Prefecture in Japan. In 1983 he graduated in the department of painting at the University Tokyo Zokei. He then experimented with the style of ukiyo-e from 1991 to 1993 to finally define his own style which he named “Heisei Estheticism”. It illustrates so many novels, short stories and draw even magazine covers. His first exhibition was held in 1998 at Creation Gallery G8 in Ginza and is called “Heisei Esthetics.” Follow several books published by Editions Treville 1998 to 2006 as well as exhibitions of which abroad in 2005 in Rome at Mondo Bizzarro Gallery.
