~ Spring ~


Spring Kemari

【point】
 It is a scene of the public houses playing Kemari under a cherry tree.
 By arranging the cherry blossom trees around as a composition, I think that it looks like you are watching Kemari from above. Don't you feel like a lord who is higher than a public residence?
 In addition, the one-letter stamp has the effect of making this postcard look like a piece. This is actually the point, and the effect of the one-letter seal is not equal.


Bird song flower dance (bird song flower dance)

【point】
 It has become a piece that reproduces the literal pattern.
 "Singing birds" gives a fun impression by arranging multiple birds. If this is only one bird, it will give a different impression again.

 Next, in the part of "flower dance", instead of daringly scattering petals, expressing the flowers that bloom in the road, "This scene is always lurking in everyday life
Yeah. "
 The arrangement of people and oxcarts also makes this "road" conscious and plays a role in the expression of "daily life".


It's a cherry blossom that reveals various things

【point】
 First, I will explain this Basho phrase very briefly.

 "The cherry blossoms" that I saw at the feast of the cherry blossoms with Yoshitada Lord before Basho left the clan
 In a cherry blossom viewing party invited by Ryochu's son Ryocho a few decades later, the `` cherry blossoms '' seen while overlapping Ryocho's features are like the old `` cherry blossoms '' that I thought I would never see again He reminded me of all the things that happened to Basho. "

 The meaning is put.
 So, I tried to compose a close-knit “Kyo” filled with memories of Basho through “Sakura” in front of me.
 By arranging K in a distant view, it expresses various things instead of one.

Heisuke surfing enjoying the sea

【point】
 The popular character of the Kyoto Ufufu Stamp “Heirsuke” is surfing happily.

  By making the waves on which he is riding and the ocean waves have the same shape, a sense of unity will appear, and I think it looks like they are riding the same ocean waves.
  In addition, you push depth slightly lower than other waves, and depth comes out. It's a little, but it is effective.
  In the expression of "summer", I think that the arrangement of the approaching clouds and seagulls gives a sense of summer excitement.


A parasol going up Shimizu's Osaka

【point】
 Many people wrote this Shiki Masaoka phrase.

 You might imagine "a woman in a kimono wearing a parasol with a parasol going up Sanenzaka (Sanenzaka) toward Kiyomizu-dera Temple during the hot summer months".
 I think Shiki wrote this phrase, looking at such a scene.
So much so, this phrase feels right about the heat of Kyoto.
 Assuming that the reader is imagining a picture in his head (it can be imagined), he only helps to stir his imagination without breaking his imagination (the picture in his head). Isn't it sometimes good?
 Therefore, in this postcard, the phrase is placed in the middle, and the destination is imagined of the summer scene of Kyoto, and at the same time, as a help of that imagination, "Kiyomizudera" and "branches with green leaves" ”,“ Seasons ”simply put on the lower right with an easy-to-understand design.
 Many people turn their eyes from the upper left to the lower right. Therefore, we want to have you read the phrase first, and then see Kiyomizu-dera Temple.


Hot Summer Visit: Sunflower Sunshine

【point】
 This is a hot summer, but let's enjoy and have fun! I focus on telling that.
 For this reason, sunflowers, which are a symbol of summer energy, are layered all over the frame.

 In addition, including the meaning of "Aibo: love and longing for nostalgia" in the flower language of sunflowers, by placing a woman who is talking to her partner, she considers the other person's situation, which is the significance of a summer visit. I also considered things.


Contiquitin♪

【point】
 I designed the Gion Matsuri, a summer tradition in Kyoto.

 The point is, as the title says,♪"I can make the image of such a fun, lively and crisp sound that you can hear the sound of the bell.

 More specifically, instead of using a "hoko" as the main role, a lot of lanterns are placed and viewed by participants (people) to express the liveliness. A lot of other colors are used to express how various people are going, and lanterns of different sizes are arranged, and when pressed with bright yellow, the perspective is blurred and the whole glow is emitted Or aiming for such effects.


Summer come

【point】
 This expresses the scene that the rainy season is over and the summer is over.

  We arrange "frog" and "snail" as expressions of the rainy season, and have them talk about the end of the rainy season with a little care.
  On the other hand, as a representation of summer, I asked "dragonfly" to tell us the arrival of summer from above. The dragonfly has the image of a little autumn, but in fact summer is the time when the dragonfly has the most.

  Please refer to it when you want to express the time around the second half of July.


~ autumn ~


Autumn deep Jizo rejoices Autumn leaves rain

【point】
 We pushed out the splendor of autumn leaves throughout.
 The point is color. Not to mention the autumn leaves, the wonderfulness of the gradation of that color that is shown just before falling is attractive. Therefore, we push it with various colors to make it as close as possible.
 However, there is no trick to simply using many colors. Look closely at the image on the left. Do you notice that the intention is hidden in the color?

 That's right. The degree of autumn leaves depends on the tree.
 The leaves on the right side of the image are bright red and yellow, while the left side of the image is mainly green and brown.
 If you look at the actual autumn leaves nearby, the degree of the autumn leaves is completely different depending on the type of trees and how the sunshine is.
 By devising in this way, the green and tea trees on the left play a role in enhancing the vividness of the vermilion and yellow on the right, as well as approaching the actual autumn leaves. Jizo is pleased, too.


Chiaki Manse

【point】
 The word "Chiaki Mansai" at the center is Keiga's wish for longevity. In addition to words, they press red dragonflies, rice ears, and kakashi. This makes it easy to associate autumn.
 However, the intent of this postcard is to remind the famous phrase of Inaho, "Kana Inaka who hangs his head as much as it grows," and also conveys the phrase "Chiaki Mansei" to wish for longevity.

 For example, when sending to a respected elderly person etc., we repeat the life of Inaho and the recipient, and say, "I have a humble heart despite many years of experience and many fruits of experience. I always pray that you always have good health. "
 Wouldn't it be nice to send it with such a meaning?


Red Tonbo with family, with autumn

【point】
 The leaves of the trees are still blue, the flowers are blooming, and red dragonflies are flying, expressing the scene of the end of summer and the coming of autumn.

  Wondering when you look at this postcard, does your mouth come up a little?
  The part where the red dragonfly is flying with the family and the smile of Jizo may have softened the whole postcard.


~ Winter ~


Peony snow On a falling day, gently round your back

【point】
 This is a design that expresses the cold of winter. As a point, pressing the square tone stamp on the upper left and lower right of the white postcard limits the space between them and aims at the effect that the entire postcard looks tight.

 In addition, the snow outside the round window has a different depth by using different sizes, and by arranging not only women and cats, but also seemingly insignificant lights, it spreads out and the room Makes you aware that you are inside. If you make good use of the space created by these decorations and pressing methods, you will get a beautiful finish.

 Furthermore, if you press the yellow circle tone stamp on this lantern, the time will change completely and it will be night. Please try variously.


Nagura

【point】
 He pushes the word "Nagaraku no pole" which means "the endless fun continues."
  I chose to use these words in winter because I want to convey that in nature, winter is a symbol of harshness, but in such a situation you can find pleasure depending on your own mind.
To give this meaning to the design, we use a snowflake stamp to indicate winter.
  Secondly, “fun” is different for each person. However, I think that the expression "flower blooms in XX" is used for anything, so "flower" is used here to express "enjoyment." The word "endless" is expressed by pressing "flowers" a lot. The point here is that by pushing the "flower" out of the frame, the "flower" is still in full bloom = the impression that it is infinitely blooming.


Humiliate stand on the snowy field ご と like a crane

【point】
 The theme is "power".
 The design depicts a crane walking on a cold snowy field.

 As a technique, mixing blue in a silvery world gives the impression that a design that was only a cold impression can be hopeful.
 Also, instead of using snowflakes as seen with a microscope, using an old-fashioned snow ring pattern, it may be a strange expression, but I tried to make it warm instead of cold snow .
 How is it warm?

~ Other ~


Nishikigoi

【point】
The light and rocks on the water surface of the pond are expressed using tone stamps.

 Also, as a technique to make the carp look like a Nishikigoi, it is colored with a face after stamping. If you press the face so that it protrudes from the design of the stamp, it will become a pale color and give an underwater atmosphere, so please try it if you like.


Symbiosis

【point】
In order to make it seem as if you are quietly peeking at the animal's life between the trees, the branches are piled up on the upper left and lower right, making it appear that branches are growing from outside the frame.

 Regarding the arrangement of the birds, I tried to express them as if they were communicating by consciously pushing on the deer's eyes and the eyes of the birds.
 It looks kind of fun.


Ninjutsu exchange

【point】
In order to express the ninja's quick movements, we use different shades of the stamp to create an afterimage. Furthermore, I tried to show the movement more quickly and show the direction of the movement by using the three-line stamp.

 Also, if you combine this with a tiled roof stamp, you will feel more space and distance and it will be interesting.


Old pond and frog jump into the sound of water

【point】
The emphasis here is on expressing the moment of silence before the sound can be heard.
 I dare to make the design simple (two types) and leave the left half blank to express "quietness" beside "motion".

 In this way, it is possible to create new expressions not only by overlapping the patterns but also by using such blanks well, so please try it.


Kogaku Pure Land

【point】
The place of paradise is nothing more than an image, so the design is based on the image that everyone has. Color is important not only in design but also in image.

 First of all, the Buddha's halo is expressed with a yellow tone stamp, and the lotus combines two types of pink and two types of green to create vividness.

 In addition, the clouds used four colors of metallic ink to express gorgeous clouds. By using various shades like this, I think that the world full of light can be expressed a little.
