"Rai-jin" is the god of thunder. This work is a pair with "Fu-jin (the god of the wind)". Many painters have drawn "Fujin" and "Raijin" so far.
In addition, I drew "Nobori-ryu (ascending dragon)".

This work was sold as a hanging scroll in my exhibition etc.

Rat Girl




This is the year of rat in Chinese astrology.
Though I draw the girl of the western style first, finally, it became a Japanese style.
Her clothes are the underling of magistrate styles in Edo period. It is "Jitte" that she has in the hand. It is arms used when the criminal is arrested.
