Title: Sword and Brush, Samurai Musashi Miyamoto
Description: Portrait of Musashi Miyamoto (1584-1645), one of the most popular historical figure in Japanese history. He was a legendary swordsman but a master-less samurai, which was highly unussual way to live as a samurai back then. The article talks about his excellence in swordsmanship as well as his talent in painting and his taste and knowledge in arts. He also designed the city of Akashi for the governmental city project (I didn’t know!) Thank you AD Mori-san. It’s great that I get paid to draw and learn something new!
