Those that know me, know I have a slight obsession with traditional Japanese Kamon & Kimono/ Tenugui/ Furoshiki pattern designs.....this also includes Japanese Hanko stamps and artists seals especially in Kabuki woodblock prints. I have a really nice Jade stone hanko from a previous alias, so I was really looking to get a new one for DeadlyKawaii !! And at the Japan Expo Paris event I was lucky to meet up with the really lovely Tomoko Tsukui and her assistant who makes supa cute awesome stamps and I commissioned her to create my DeadlyKawaii hanko artist stamp or [雅号印] to put on artworks. Pic of Tsukui Tomoko-san holding the new DeadlyKawaii hanko >.< So here's the new DeadlyKawaii hanko! Check out her cute website here: TSUKUITOMOKO.COM I wonder if I would have been able to create something myself, but definitely not so skillfully. I really like how it has a handmade look to it, but mostly made by a person who really loves her craft and artform so I will be proud to stamp my new sketches and artworks with it^^ A close-up of how the print turns out can be seen at the header of this post... So ...
