Is anyone else obsessed with calligraphy recently? This is amazing. The author of these pieces, Kaoru Akugawa, showed these on a recent post on Beyond Calligraphy's timeline. She tries to highlight traditional hiragana calligraphy that was used by women aristocrats in the 10th century with modern kanji shodo (lit. “character calligraphy”) to create these awesome pictures. I don’t even know how she did the pictures. Anyone else know of any artwork like this?? I’d love to know~
