This is a watercolor sketch I made several years ago (in 1997, while living in Athens, Georgia). It's one of my Japan-inspired visions using a black ink Rotring drawing pen and liquid inks. It's amazing, curious, and interesting to me that our lives are 'populated by voices' (Bakhtin) and images from the cultures and people we visit and know. Even years later, these voices seep out into our language and art and acts. Maybe nothing is original. Maybe everything is.
