Happy New Year 2021 from Kobe, Japan! 

Please receive my warmest greeting and attached new year card I drew, hoping that your 2021 will be the year of “raise/harvest” as shown in Japanese calligraphy “育 (Iku)”.

The year of the ox (2nd Zodiac cycle animals) is said to be a symbol of the harbinger (buds) that will grow/move forward albeit slowly. Although 2020 was a tough year and in many ways an “increasing” year (増).

I hope you and your loved ones will have a wonderful 2021, both physically and mentally. I look forward to seeing you in person and/or online this year.

PS: Maybe you might see something in the drawing.

Happy New Year 2019ーAccumulation

Happy New Year 2019 from Mauritania (West Africa) !!

Please receive my warmest greeting and new year card I drew, hoping that our 2019 will be the year of “accumulation” as said in Japanese calligraphy “蓄  (Chiku)”.

Pig is the last of 12-year cycle of Zodiac animals and the symbol of preparation and patience for new big start, as well as of going straight.

It is my hope that we keep accumulating what we learned through “Fly High” Cock year 2017 and “Make Effort” Dog year 2018, to progress even further.

Please take care of your mental and physical well-being, and I hope to see you somewhere in the near future,

P.S. Probably you might see something from pig drawing.
