Hi all!

I am 36, living in Japan. I study Chinese and Japanese calligraphy, and anything that has to do with Chinese writing system. I am a member of few calligraphy organizations, as well as an active member of the classic literature research group in Tokyo. In spare time, I am a writer, poet, and ink painter.

I am currently creating sites devoted to calligraphy, you can find them here:

This however does not mean that I popped in here to drop one post and disappear. I look forward to discussions and information exchange on the subjects of Chinese writing system and oriental calligraphy.


p.s. Simon, thanks a lot for registering me.

Welcome to the forum, your work looks really good. Especially the sumi-e bamboo looks great.
I would love to see more of your work.

Thanks, gnunix, I really appreciate it. I will upload more of my works to the gallery. I rarely paint sumi-e as I simply do not have the time. Calligraphy consumes the majority of it. I also work on a huge project regarding kanji etymology, where I intend to cover some 2100+ characters in separate articles. Few of them are already uploaded to the blog. This task simply eats my time in big chunks.
