The Butterfly Koi

I made a watercolor poster for our (someday hopefully forthcoming) novel¬†The Butterfly Koi, original size 18×24. Large areas of flat black are perhaps not best suited to watercolor, but enough layers of the relatively opaque¬†Kuretake Gansai Tambi made it work.

After the end of a busy semester, sitting down with my hobonichi to take stock does so much to put my mind at ease. I haven’t crossed much off yet, but I no longer need to continuously complete “remember everything in my head”.
