"in my dream I was washing you and crying 
harassed by butterflies without antennae” 

Naoko Higashi is a Japanese poet who has been expressing her feelings of love and intimacy into Japanese Tanka. Tatsuro Kiuchi has extended her world and captured the depth of her feelings in beautiful illustrations. The combination of her Tanka’s alluring simplicity with the understated elegance of the illustrations blend to create an intense world of emotional and artistic awareness. 

Jonathan Leask’s English translation has deftly kept the meaning and rhythm of the Tanka intact, providing for a highly enjoyable reading. 

First published as paper book by Poplar Japan in 2004, and the Kindle Japanese edition was released in 2013.

Here is my making video of the 2013 Masters 15th hole illustration for Golf Digest April issue 2014. The line drawing at the beginning is one of my sketches I made at the golf course last year. I scanned it and colored as you see in this video. The entire process recording was more than 15 hour long but I edited and shortened it, sped up to approximately 12 times faster. Music by my friend, Tumbleweed.
