Shikishi

Shikishi 「色紙」are so called in Japanese because of the colored paper support the drawing is done over. It is well used in Japan by fans who bring them over to the artist they wish a sign or a ‘special drawing’ from. Gensodo uses this same support to make one time (unique) hand drawings.

The technic is a clean pen rough (douga), then shiitake san applies water color and finaly some sparkles with professional artist pens. Shikishi are truly unique and we consider them as the ‘king’ of the the gensodo collection.  They are very limited over time and already many collectors own some of them in many many different countries including Japan, USA, Australia, Russia, Begium, England, France…
