It's been quiet around here without an event to go to every other weekend. This lull comes at a good time as I prepare for classes that I will be teaching at Rites of Spring. Currently I am preparing my handout for the class on Japanese games. I wanted to add a personal touch by creating the illustrations to be included in the handout. Besides most of the images available to use, pertaining to each subject matter, just wasn't what I was envisioning as a visual reference.
I intend to include three illustrations in the hand out, one for each game that will be discussed. Two out of three have been completed and I will be working on the third one this week.
The illustration above is that of the game Hanetsuki. It is a Japanese game similar to badminton. To the right, is an illustration of the game Tōko.
