I needed a good reference of a dandelion for an illustration I’m working on, and then I bumped into the website of Naoji Ishiyama, a Japanese printmaker who lives and works in Finland. You can feel the zen-like quietness and coldness of the north mix together just perfectly. His dandelion is great, but I fell in love even more with his other works. Especially those from 2004. His small piece Kazamidori is something I would love to hang on my studio wall.
