Nurikabe
Nurikabe For Future Upcoming Show
(acrylic on panel 8X10)

The Nurikabe is part of Japanese folklore. It is a large invisible wall that stops people and carriages in the middle of the road. If you are late just blame it on the Nurikabe. If the Nurikabe does decide to show itself it is said to look like a large wall with tiny arms, legs and a face. For this folk art illustration I wanted a simple character with a lot of energetic movement, as if to be happily walking of to work.
