DRAWING by DANIEL MITSUI
This is an ink drawing on an 8" × 10" piece of Bristol board. I drew it using fine-tipped pens; calligraphers’ inks applied with brushes; and brass leaf.
The original was created on private commission.
This is one of several drawings I have made depicting Catholic religious subjects in the style of traditional Japanese art. It depicts St. Raphael the Archangel, holding his traditional attributes: a fish and a staff. 19th century woodblock prints by Kuniyoshi, Yoshitoshi and Hiroshige informed its composition.
The decorative outer border contains cranes, cliffs, ocean waves and carp.
