Eri Natsume

Haru kaze no okurimono (Present from the Spring Wind)


The subject is Japan's four seasons so I have used my favorite theme...spring. Blooming blossom, petals scattering on the wind, and petals covering the ground, each of these has its own heart and meaning. This is what I love about Japan.
I think that anthropomorphism is a part of the wonderful culture that developed in Japan and so I have decided to draw a mermaid who is half goldfish. I imagined a rendezvous scene,in which the goldfish girl will be able to be reunited with her lover in the spring.
I hope that you will be able to find a feeling of the warmth, joy and anticipation of spring within this picture.
