A study of the front obi sectin of a Japanese doll a few decades old. I am fascinated by Japanese garments and the design made from combining patterns and folds of fabric. The folds in the upper portion of the design are from an outer kimono that is sometimes worn hanging from the waist as the arms aren’t in the sleeves. It adds a richness to the overall design.

This is done in graphite and is one of a series of drawings of this figure. I choose parts of the whole so as to get an appreciation of the detail involved in Japanese clothing ensembles.

    • >Hi Monica,This is very interesting that your allowing anonymous comments. I have been wanting to comment on various posts, but I didn’t have the time to ‘join’ blogger.

Almost the same animals, and using organic methods, just in different part of the USA. ;o) I have enjoyed your posts for a long while. Thanks for opening your comments again!I love the pelts you show in the post for Thursday. They are beautiful! I’ll be back to comment…Have a beautiful day!!Kris in WA

    • For two years I cooked the Friday evening Friendship Dinner for a hundred people when it was our groups turn, that was fun until the program director started telling me how I had to do everything. I don’t need someone telling me how to do something, I’ve cooked in cafes and had a food handlers card and don’t like idiot directors that don’t know what they are talking about fussing at me so I told him to take a flying f*** at a rolling donut. Breakfast is my favorite meal to cook, did them a lot of Sundays when I was raising a family.
