I found this very cool piece in a Japanese Street Art Group.
I love the shading in this, its amazing what artists can achieve!
The thing that caught my eye first was actually that black ribbon!

Koi T-shirt

Today I am featuring a beautiful tee by Red Bubble member, Angelique Price

This Koi was done in Sharpies on Bristol paper, and is absolutely stunning!

I really love the style of the waves, and every detail has been taken care of. The colours work so well together.

Check out this other tee from Angelique, a wonderful geisha which was originally a tattoo design.

Detail of a vintage E-hon

Detail of a vintage E-hon, originally uploaded by P F C.

Printed around the 1850's.
Bought at a market in Ueno. Each page is very thin & the details extraordinary, considering everything you see printed had to be 'carved' in reverse first. (words by P F C)
