CUSTOM INK | Japan Waves | Archive


I have a hundreds of design which have been created since 2014. Most of them I haven't yet managed to get around to sharing on line.

I am trying to rectify this in 2021, but looking through the archives and posting a few here and there!

These feature Botanical inspired motifs.

This design was an open brief. The client preferred the shading to be minimal, & the design not to be too dense or heavy.

BLOG | Asanoha Symbol & its meaning in art | Punctured Artefact

|| Symbolism || The Asanoha pattern is one of the most popular traditional patterns often seen on Japanese kimono. Asanoha means: Asa = hemp: no = of: ha = leaf. The regular geometric pattern, though abstract, represents overlapping hemp leaves.



The design features 3 Camellia Flowers & leaves. With a repeated circular background pattern, in graduated dot work.

This download also contains the flowers without the background pattern. The pattern, can be omitted if preferred

|| Symbolism || In ancient times the camellia, with its evergreen leaves & beautiful flowers was viewed as sacred in Japan ||
